SINGAPORE - President Tony Tan Keng Yam visited the Rolls-Royce Campus at the Seletar Aerospace Park with members of the Council of Presidential Advisers (CPA) on Jul 8, 2014.

Launched in 2007, the Seletar Aerospace Park has attracted strong interest from various global players in the aerospace industry.

The Rolls-Royce Campus, which opened in 2012, is the first facility outside the UK assembling its Trent series of engines, which power aircrafts including the Airbus A380 and Boeing 787.

President Tan said in a Facebook post after the visit: "I visited the Rolls-Royce Campus at the Seletar Aerospace Park with members of the Council of Presidential Advisers this afternoon. Launched in 2007, Seletar Aerospace Park has attracted strong interest from various global players in the aerospace industry. The Rolls-Royce Campus which opened in 2012 is the first facility outside the UK assembling its Trent series of engines, which power aircrafts including the Airbus A380 and Boeing 787.

"I would like to congratulate EDB and JTC on the success of the Seletar Aerospace Park, which has positioned Singapore well to tap on the growth of the aerospace industry in this part of the world."
