Up to 300 world leading aviation strategists have gathered at a conference to share their experiences with Vietnamese aviation operators to map out action plans for the country’s developing aviation logistics sector amid the global economic difficulties.

At the April 25 conference jointly held in Ho Chi Minh City by the Vietnam Logistics Association and the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, industry insiders and experts discussed issues relating to aviation transport logistics such as opportunities and challenges for newly-emerging markets, aviation logistics connectivity, aviation logistics amid an economic recession, training and security.

The event created a venue for domestic operators to develop service supply chains with international partners, penetrating deeper into the global supply chain. It was also a chance for foreign companies to seek business ties with Vietnamese partners.

Experts predicted that the aviation sector will continue to face huge challenges in 2013 due to the global economic hardship, increasing cost of fuel and aviation security. Therefore, the conference is expected to come up with suitable ways to create close ties among businesses in the sector and find new development opportunities.

According to the Vietnam Civil Aviation Administration, Vietnam’s aviation industry transported 17.5 million passengers and 201,000 tonnes of cargo in 2012, a year-on-year increase of 5.2 percent and 1.98 percent respectively.
