TFWA expands representation with trade groupsBy Melita Kiely
The Tax Free World Association (TFWA) is looking to broaden its representation with affiliate trade associations to share the diversity and expertise of its board members.
Following the recent appointment of Jaya Singh as president, TFWA hopes to create a ‘more co-ordinated’ approach to its relationships with other associations and establish a stronger common purpose throughout the travel industry.
As such, Singh will represent TFWA on the Duty Free World Council board; TFWA vice president finance Frédéric Garcia-Pelayo will represent TFWA on the MEADFA board; TFWA vice president commercial Donatienne de Fontaines-Guillaume will represent TFWA on the ETRC board; and TFWA vice president corporate Sam Gerber will represent TFWA on the APTRA board.
Singh said: “I’m fortunate to serve on a very talented and experienced TFWA board and I’m keen that we share their experience and insights with our friends serving on trade bodies around the world.
“At this time of crisis, we place greater value than ever on industry outreach and TFWA is determined to support the vital work being done on behalf of our industry by our sister associations.”
