Humanitarian Airlift And Disaster Response Asia-Pacific Conference

We are proud to announce the return of Humanitarian Airlift And Disaster Response Asia-Pacific which will be taking place in Singapore on 23rd and 24th May 2016 in Singapore. Humanitarian Airlift And Disaster Response Asia-Pacific will be returning for the 3rd installment.

This conference programme will provide updates on capabilities and requirements from national militaries for humanitarian operations, how civil-military cooperation is enhancing the NGO response to regional humanitarian disasters, overcoming the key challenges of humanitarian logistics and innovative technologies to enhance the disaster response. These topics will be addressed by military speakers, civil-military coordinators, regional logistic experts and disaster response organisations, therefore bringing together all key regional stakeholders for disaster response exercises.

With the Royal Malaysian Air Force's recent acquisition of the A400m there is appetite to enhance capabilities and satisfy requirements both through procurement and collaboration across Asia-Pacific and that is what makes this a critical forum for regional air transport and airlift end-users and industry.
