07 Nov 2018 News Releases

1.     Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure and Minister for Transport Mr Khaw Boon Wan will attend the 24th ASEAN Transport Ministers’ Meeting and associated meetings with ASEAN Dialogue Partners, on 8 and 9 November 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand.

2.     ASEAN transport ministers will discuss regional co-operation in air, land, and sea transport. The Ministers are expected to sign the Protocol 4 to the ASEAN Multilateral Agreement on the Full Liberalisation of Passenger Air Services (MAFLPAS) on Co-Terminal Rights Between Points Within the Territory of Any Other ASEAN Member State. When ratified, the Protocol will enable ASEAN carriers to consolidate air passenger traffic at two or more points in another ASEAN Member State, and eventually generate demand for direct linkages. Travellers will benefit with access to new destinations and more flight options.

3.     The ASEAN transport ministers will also meet with their counterparts from China, Japan and the Republic of Korea.

4.     Minister Khaw will be accompanied by officials from the Ministry of Transport, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, Land Transport Authority of Singapore, and Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.
