was convened by ICAO in Cairo, Egypt from 21 to 24 November
2005. The workshop was for Contracting States in the Middle
East and Eastern and Southern Africa regions. The invitations
were open to national civil aviation administrations which
might include representatives of autonomous entities (public

relating to such aspects as well as possible solutions.
