It was reported simultaneously from Montréal and Kigali on 22 May that ICAO is continuing its worldwide series of Regional Safety Management Symposiums and Workshops this time in Kigali, Rwanda. These gatherings promote the use of risk-based aviation safety approaches by ICAO Member States in the UN agency's African Regions.
In the words of ICAO Council President Dr Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu: 'We have embarked on this Safety Management Symposium in order to help ensure that your governments are ready and able to optimize the full socio-economic benefits of forecast air traffic growth, and to continue to develop safe, secure, efficient and sustainable aviation systems. No African country or economy should be left behind where this potential for future prosperity is concerned.'
