“Such conferences are an excellent opportunity for industry peers to share and review experiences and challenges, as well as best practices within the aviation industry, towards ensuring our human development initiatives are aligned with the requirements of the new mega structure – the Midfield Terminal Project. It was a true reflection on the interconnectivity within the aviation industry across borders, which is the base and engine of this dynamic business.”
