APTRA’s Responsible Retail Training Programme was given a boost earlier this month as fellow trade association ACI Asia Pacific helped promote the programme among its airport members. In an article in its bi-weekly newsletter ACI Regional Director Patti Chau commented… “The programme received positive reaction when it was presented to the board of ACI Asia Pacific in recent weeks.”
ACI Asia Pacific Director Patti Chau commended the initiative and said they would be happy to help promote the programme among the association members.
APTRA President Jaya Singh also comments in the article: “I urge all those travel retailers who are engaged in liquor sales to contact us and arrange to take part in this training programme… Airports are doing an excellent job in becoming more socially and environmentally responsible and we would encourage them to ensure retail is equally central to their CSR policy.” The full article can be seen here on the ACI Asia Pacific website newsletter page…
Retailers wishing to find out more about the programme can download the brief presentation on the APTRA website at this link. Alcohol suppliers are strongly encouraged to use this presentation to impress upon retailers the need for a blanket adoption of the training across the region.
