tem should mitigate the growing complexity and sophistication of
cyber-attacks and the risks resulting from the increasing integra-
tion between airline airport and aviation authority IT infrastructure.

AAV: The show is a key reason why Singapore is on the map in terms
of aviation. How important is it to Singapore and will it continue?
LCL: Over the years Singapore's aviation industry and the Singa-
pore Air Show have developed in tandem building on the synergy
of each other 's strengths. Since the first edition of the Singapore
Air Show it has created visibility for Singapore and contributed
towards the growth of its aviation ecosystem. Leveraging the
Singapore Air Show as a strategic platform Singapore has built
its capabilities to attract international industry players and stake-
holders to establish business presence in the country. Singapore's
position as a hub has contributed to the growth of the Singapore
Air Show over the years and it is recognised as Asia's largest and
one of the most important aerospace and defence events in the
world and the key gateway to tap into opportunities in the Asia-Pa-
cific --- the world's fastest growing region for the aerospace and
AAV: What's the worst part for the organisers in putting on the show
and what's the best part?
LCL: The most demanding part of the Singapore Air Show is ensur-
ing that we continue to deliver a great experience for our attendees
through insightful content and relevant programming. This year 's Air
Show is taking place amidst exciting but challenging times for the
global aviation industry --- rising demand for air travel is powering
robust growth with a record 4 billion air passengers expected to fly
this year. This will nearly double over the next 20 years to reach 7.8
billion passengers in 2036. At the same time technology innovation
and digitalisation continue to disrupt traditional business models
processes and relationships. In fact the Asia-Pacific region will
need (and buy more aircraft than any other region over the next
two decades. In light of all these industry developments the best
part of the Air Show is seeing it achieve its aim of being a strategic
platform for regulators airlines manufacturers entrepreneurs and
other key stakeholders to chart the industry's growth trajectory ---
through connecting opportunities driving change and shaping the
future of the industry.
AAV: And finally, what's the taxi/private car situation this time? In
2016 there were complaints about private cars not being allowed and
rates to get special decals for them seemed exorbitant. Any news on
LCL: There were several factors like the close to 5 percent increase
in trade visitors during the first day of the Air Show which had
contributed to the tra ic situation in 2016. We have looked into the
details and the necessary preparations are in progress. The specific
details of these key measures will be announced when finalised.
What I can tell you at this time is that we are focused on preventing
any recurrence of the 2016 situation.
