UAE and Australia sign civil aviation cooperation agreement

Posted 8 April 2013 · Add Comment

The UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Australia's Department of Infrastructure and Transport to facilitate the rapid expansion of civil aviation operations between the two countries.

This should result in the enhancement of trade, tourism and cultural exchange. 

HE Saif Mohammed Al Suwaidi, director general of GCAA, signed the MoU on behalf of the UAE Government with Mike Mrdak, Australia’s Secretary at the Department of Infrastructure and Transport.

The MoU will go a long way in promoting mutual cooperation for the improvement of civil aviation security by sharing information related to civil aviation security, development of technical expertise and training.

The Government of UAE, represented by the GCAA, will continue to strive to strengthen relationship in other areas of civil aviation. The GCAA will also try to negotiate similar agreements with other countries having robust civil aviation infrastructure.
