Ladies and Gentlemen,
Last month, Darryl Chan and I had the opportunity to meet Sir Brian Burridge, Chief Executive of the Royal Aeronautical Society who was in Hong Kong for a few days. During an enjoyable lunch in which we discussed a number of topics including technological innovations in aerospace and how we can continue to attract talent to this exciting industry, Sir Brian commented that the Hong Kong branch was in good shape, maintaining a vibrant membership and delivering an interesting programme of events. He specifically asked Darryl and I to pass on his thanks to our committee members, recognising that the success of the RAeS rests heavily in the dedicated, enthusiastic and high quality work of its volunteers in putting together events and lectures and providing support to our membership and industry stakeholders.
It was very encouraging to see the work of our branch and the contribution of the committee recognized and I would like to add my thanks for their great work.
