The Singapore Airshow 2014 has seen deals worth 32 billion USD being signed after four trade days, slightly higher than that in the last edition in 2012.

At a press conference on the same day, the organisers said those with large contracts include Airbus, Embraer, Boeing and Rolls-Royce.

Over 1,000 companies from 47 countries and regions and 279 delegations from 72 countries took part in the show. The feature country this year is the US , which sent over 160 firms to the event.

There were over 40,000 trade visitors from 123 countries and regions during the first three trade days of the biennial event, compared to 38,000 during the 2012 edition.

Sean Lee, Airbus spokesman in Asia, expressed his pleasure with the firm’s success in the show, including its first-ever A350 XWB aircraft appearance and orders valued at over 15 billion USD.

The airshow will open for the public on February 15 and wrap up on the day after.

The next event will be held from February 16-21 at Changi Exhibition Centre.-VNA
