Africa commits to a brighter aviation industry
The Africa-Indian Ocean (AFI) governments have agreed to work more closely on implementing the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) aviation safety, security, and sustainability standards and plans.
This was decided at the eighth edition of Africa-Indian Ocean (AFI) Aviation Week in Nairobi at the end of August.
‘High-performing’ member states will also be offering greater assistance to those that require the most support.
ICAO Council President Salvatore Sciacchitano highlighted that the presence of “so many key representatives from states and international and regional organisations is a clear demonstration of the recognition of the importance of aviation to the sustainable development of nations, and of the need for all partners and stakeholders to work closely together to build synergies in Africa”.
