The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by PATA CEO Dr Mario Hardy and Skål International CEO Daniela Otero during the recent 47th Skål Asia Congress in Macao, China.

The agreement commits the two organisations to share knowledge through research and publications, to reciprocate in event participation, to support mutual agreed advocacy positions, and to enhance access for the benefit of members of both organisations.

“PATA and Skål are very similar in many regards. Like PATA, Skål has a long-storied history having been founded in 1934 and through the years its members have fostered a great spirit of friendship and camaraderie,” Dr Hardy said.
