The Middle East Aerospace Consortium (MEAC) has opened an Asia-Pacific office in Shanghai, China. Graham Brant, former CEO of Microsoft Hong Kong, will head up
the new office, which MEAC said will complement its existing presence in the United Arab Emirates, UK, Saudi Arabia and Switzerland.
MEAC was launched in November 2009 at the Dubai airshow. It is a membership association of both Middle East and international organizations and companies working in aerospace and aviation. MEAC already lists some 60 members on its Web site.
