EghtesadOnline: The purpose of International Civil Aviation Day is to help generate and reinforce worldwide awareness of the importance of international civil aviation to the social and economic development of States, and of the role of ICAO in promoting the safety, efficiency and regularity of international air transport.
According to the United Nations Information Center (UNIC) on Thursday, “as the UN and world nations have now adopted Agenda 2030, and embarked on a new era in global sustainable development, the importance of aviation as an engine of global connectivity has never been more relevant to the Chicago Convention's objectives to look to international flight as a fundamental enabler of global peace and prosperity, IRNA reported.
For 2015-2018 inclusive, the Council has selected the following theme: Working Together to Ensure No Country is Left Behind. The campaign highlights ICAO’s efforts to assist States in implementing ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs). The main goal of this work is to help ensure that SARP implementation is better harmonized globally so that all States have access to the significant socio-economic benefits of safe and reliable air transport and can address safety, security and emissions-related issues.”
