"With a nearly 50-year history in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region, RTX represents more than 16,000 employees in 17 locations, and is the largest foreign employer in aerospace & defense in Singapore," said Liping Xie, vice president of government relations in Asia-Pacific.

At the forefront of pursuing more sustainable, connected flight, RTX will display its electric and hybrid-electric propulsion capabilities, as well as its end-to-end Connected Aviation Ecosystem solutions that help streamline operations, improve sustainability and enhance the passenger experience.
