On Friday 21st July, the Bahrain Minister of Transporation and Telecommunications, HE Engineer Kamal Bin Ahmed Mohammad was in London to meet with key UK Aerospace businesses to discuss new UK-Bahraini business opportunities and the forthcoming Bahrain International Airshow (BIAS). 

Paul Everitt, Chief Executive of ADS Group, the trade organisation for companies in the UK Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space Sectors gave the opening address and welcomed the Minister.

Speaking at the event, Stephen Phipson, Head of the Department of International Trade’s Defence and Security Organisation said:

"The show presents a great opportunity for the UK and Bahrain to showcase how we already work together and promote future collaboration and trade. It gives businesses from across aerospace industries the opportunity to exhibit their products in world class facilities and offers the perfect networking opportunity for senior industry players and international delegations. I expect BIAS18 to be one of the priority events in our overseas calendar for next year and we will work with UK Government, Farnborough International and wider Industry to ensure we make the most of this fantastic event”.

During the event, UTC Aerospace Sytems also signed an agreement to participate in the forthcoming show.
