Austria will be represented with a national pavilion for the first time at a Dubai air show next month, when a group of the country’s biggest aviation specialists will converge in the United Arab Emirates for Dubai 2005, the ninth international aerospace exhibition.
Austria is also expected to field a strong VIP delegation which will include senior Austrian government officials as well as its Ambassador to the UAE and the embassy’s commercial attaché.
Supported by the Austrian government and the country’s Federal Chamber of Commerce, the Austrian pavilion is one of the 13 national and industry pavilions confirmed for Dubai 2005.
“This initiative is a result of increasing interest in the Middle East among Austria’s emerging aerospace sector,” said Stefan Kreuzer, General Manager, Castellana Business Development, the Austrian representative of Fairs & Exhibitions, the organiser of the Dubai air show.
“The Middle East is now becoming key to Austria’s aerospace and aviation sectors because of the opportunities thrown up by massive regional expansion.”
