The liaison group has been instrumental in these achievements." Mr. Lam, a founder member of the Liaison Group on Aviation Weather Services, valued the contribution of the liaison group. "Not many countries have the valuable support of an aviation weather liaison group which has operated effectively for our airport for 15 years", Mr. Lam added.
Mr Robert Wong of Lufthansa Airlines, one of the longest serving members of the liaison group, said, "The liaison group is a good channel for direct exchange of views between the aviation users and the HKO, enabling our needs to be better understood. As a result, the Observatory develops and provides products and services that users really desire. We are pleased to see the continuous enhancement in the aviation weather services of the HKO over the past 15 years."
