SHAH ALAM, Feb 10 — The state government is considering expanding the venue for its annual Selangor Aviation Show (SAS) as it expects to attract more airline companies and visitors this year.

State executive councillor for investment Dato’ Teng Chang Khim is confident that they can manage the organisation of the third exhibition, especially to accommodate the presence of visitors from within and outside the country.

“The programme will take place at the Skypark Regional Aviation Centre (Skypark RAC), Subang but at a larger scale than the previous two events.

“Although the location is quite limited and we need a larger space, we are confident that we can manage it. We will make sure that lots of aircrafts can be exhibited,” he told SelangorKini.

Beginning 2021, the state government has been organising SAS annually to promote the growth of the aerospace sector in addition to providing a platform for local companies and small and medium-sized industrial entrepreneurs to explore the field.

Efforts through the implementation of the Selangor Aerospace Action Plan 2020–2030 managed by the Selangor Darul Ehsan Aerospace Industry Coordination Office (S-Daico) are also in line with the state’s target to be a major aerospace player by 2030.

Last year, the SAS 2022, which took place from September 8 to 10, recorded a potential transaction value of RM1.174 billion, while SAS 2021, which was held for the first time, recorded RM100 million.
