FARNBOROUGH (United Kingdom), July 17 (Bernama) -- Malaysia is participating in the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) 2014) as a major regional exhibitor in its quest to propel the country's aerospace industry to greater heights.

Malaysian High Commissioner to the UK, Datuk Ahmad Rasidi Hazizi, said the Malaysian Pavilion, managed by the Malaysia External Trade Development Corp (MATRADE), indicated the government's seriousness and consistency in developing the aerospace industry.

"At least seven Malaysian companies are taking part in FIA2014, particularly in pioneering collaborative efforts with major international aerospace industry players.

"The Malaysian Pavillion has received tremendous response from the local business community, including those who have expressed interests and commitment to work together to develop our aerospace industry," he told reporters on the sidelines of FIA2014 here Thursday.

Ahmad Rasidi said the areas emphasised by Malaysian participants at FIA 2014 were important in achieving the mission of turning Malaysia into the Southeast Asian aerospace hub.

He said the number of memorandum of understanding entered into by Malaysian companies also reflected major international players' confidence in Malaysian companies.
