UAE reinforces cooperation activities with ICAO

Posted 15 October 2014 · Add Comment

The UAE's civil aviation authority (GCAA), has signed an MoU with ICAO to reinforce international cooperation programs initiated by the authority together with the aviation authorities in different countries.

Under the agreement, GCAA will provide technical and logistic support for international aviation training programmes that are organized by ICAO at its headquarters, or within member states’ territories.
Upon signing the agreement, GCAA director general Saif Al Suwaidi said: “The civil aviation industry in the UAE has come a long way in the field of human element and technical development in civil aviation. At the international level, the UAE has secured its position among leading countries in this domain. Effective agreements and partnerships with many countries were made to enhance the overall international civil aviation system.”
He said the agreement was in line with the strategic objectives set by the GCAA to boost international cooperation programs with the different countries and regions.”
The GCAA delegation headed by Al Suwaidi went to the ICAO headquarters in Montreal to attend the international cooperation conference sponsored by the UAE. The conference addressed means of enhancing international cooperation aspects in civil aviation on the different levels, including aviation safety and security, air navigation and others. On the sidelines of the conference, the delegation held side consultations with a number of participating countries to consider potential cooperation opportunities and enhance existing cooperation agreements.
Earlier this year, GCAA signed a number of training agreements with regional civil aviation organizations. Additionally, the Authority extended some of the existing MoUs, one of which was signed with the Latin American Civil Aviation Commission (CLAC) and the African Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC) in order to provide a number of training sessions in the fields of safety and security training in the different African countries and to participate in the different cooperation programs implemented in the UAE. By virtue of these agreements, many training sessions were held over the past three years and about 300 civil aviation professionals were trained.
