24 Nov 2021
Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) has opened its first engineering and design office in Southeast Asia in Cyberjaya, where joint studies in a variety of areas which include unmanned aerial vehicles, jet trainers, helicopter projects and modernisation programmes for the global aviation ecosystem will take place.
TAI and the Malaysian aerospace industry are engaged on many common programmes, particularly in the development of Airbus aircraft.
“The opening of Turkish Aerospace’s first engineering and design office in Malaysia is opportune for us to look at how we can synergise our joint expertise to secure workflow for the benefit of the Turkish and Malaysian aerospace industry,” Senior Minister cum Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said at the opening ceremony.
“Turkish Aerospace’s footprint in Malaysia will enhance Malaysia’s aerospace ecosystem, which has the right value proposition for the company to expand its presence in ASEAN and beyond, particularly in the manufacturing and high-end services sector,” said Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) chief executive officer Datuk Arham Abdul Rahman.
“The competitive cost of doing business in Malaysia will undoubtedly be beneficial for both parties to raise the nation’s local expertise, as well as certification status,” he added.
