Educating them on how to tap into the N Korean market sounds more like it!

A primary school sending its students into North Korea?!!!!!! Are you sure? For that to happen to students at the University/Pre University/Secondary level its hard enough already, imagine how hard it would be for students from primary school... I don't think parents allow their children to be sent to a country without a Singapore embassy, without assurance that their children will not be kidnapped and so far away (How much would parents have to pay just to send one son to North Korea).

ai tong primary school.. i have no idea why they went. but i guess dictators often do very grand stuff - although half baked. their subway is somewhat like moscow's but um lower quality. and some other biuldings lar i forgot. some children's hall, some stadium blarblarblar.

i really dont know if they went there to look at architecture though..

if i remember correctly, there were other places on the itinery too.. not just north korea. places in that region lar.

SINCAIR to boost aviation safety in S'pore

SINGAPORE - The Government has taken steps to promote aviation safety in Singapore with the setting up of the Singapore Confidential Aviation Incident Reporting (SINCAIR) Programme which takes effect on Friday.

Minister of State for Finance and Transport Lim Hwee Hua announced this at the International Federation of Air Line Pilots Association (IFALPA) Safety Seminar.

She said the aim of SINCAIR is to enhance aviation safety through the collection of feedback on incidents that would otherwise not be reported through other channels or which may appear minor.

She added that safety lessons can be drawn from the reported incidents, including non-serious ones, and share such information amongst the aviation community in Singapore.

The feedback will enable organisations participating in the programme to learn from these experiences and improve their own procedures and design.

SINCAIR provides a channel for the reporting of aviation incidents and safety deficiencies while protecting the individual's identity.

The procedures used have taken into account the practices of a number of established and similar systems overseas and are international best practices.

SINCAIR is a proactive safety programme that targets all users and operatives of Singapore's aviation system and will adopt a rigorous confidentiality arrangement.

Channel set up for confidential reporting of aviation errors

IN A move to boost flight safety, the Singapore authorities have opened a confidential channel for all aviation users from pilots to aircraft engineers to report mistakes and near-misses without the fear of punishment.

While reporting of incidents that breach aviation safety such as malfunctioning aircraft instruments are already mandatory, others - such as a pilot pressing a wrong button accidentally but resets it in time - could go unreported or appear minor.

The programme to allow this confidential reporting was unveiled at an aviation safety seminar on Thursday.

The programme, which starts today, is part of Singapore's aim to be an international aviation hub and is in line with the International Civil Aviation Organisation's recommendation for a voluntary incident reporting system that is non-punitive and protects the informer, the Transport Ministry said in a statement.
