region are internationally qualified and have served in countries all over
the world. "Since many of the healthcare professionals that come to reside
in Singapore are so well qualified, there seems to be a rising trend in the
quality of healthcare in the region."

Mr. Dunnink states that this will mean an increased influx of travellers
to Singapore in search of medical attention. That in turn will increase the
need for medevac services in the area.

Besides medical tourism, Singapore is also thriving as a support
industry for oil and gas in the REGION OF South East Asia. "Since 60% of the

With the growing need for Medevac facilities and aircraft charter for oil
and gas, Air Charter International has marked Singapore as a place to watch
