HONG KONG - Airports Council International (ACI) Asia-Pacific announced the launch of a new website to strengthen advocacy efforts in support of its regional airport member base. Sporting a fresh visual identity, the new website prominently features news and perspectives from its airport members and World Business Partners and highlights the advocacy areas most needed for the future development and prosperity of the region.
