The Netherlands Aerospace Group (NAG), an industry association representing 90% of all aerospace companies and institutes in Holland, is to support a government-backed pavilion at this year’s Dubai air show.

“The Holland pavilion at Dubai 2003 is being supported by the Dutch Foreign Trade Agency as NAG and its members perceive the Middle East as a prime growth market where many members have established solid footholds,” explains Frank Jansen, NAG’s managing director.

Among the Dutch companies scheduled to exhibit in the pavilion are Akzo Nobel Aerospace Coatings, which makes paints and coatings for the aerospace industry, KLM Engineering & Maintenance, Belgraver Aircraft Interiors and Avio-Diepen, which provides stock management and spare parts distribution of components to airlines, original equipment manufacturers and maintenance, repair and overhaul customers.

“In all, we anticipate 10 Dutch companies spanning a wide range of products and services being housed in the pavilion,” says Jansen.

11 countries are now set to have pavilions at the December 7-11 show, including Jordan, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, the USA, Canada, Sweden and Greece. “Additional group participation is being actively pursued by pavilion organisers from the Czech Republic and South Africa,” adds Clive Richardson, chief executive, Aerospace Division, Fairs & Exhibitions (F&E), which organises Dubai 2003.
