Asia and Pacific

  1. TCB's Asia/Pacific Section retained its emphasis on promoting and supporting civil aviation development through technical cooperation activities in the Region. Enhancement of flight safety and aviation security oversight capabilities, SARPs compliance and institution building, through ICAO technical cooperation programmes, have been the major thrust areas.

  2. Sustainable development of civil aviation personnel, as one of TCB's main efforts, has been accomplished through ICAO TRAINAIR programmes. Since the last ICAO Assembly in 1998, the TRAINAIR programme is being successfully delivered in several additional countries of the Asia/Pacific Region, including Islamic Republic of Iran, Republic of Korea, Viet Nam, Philippines and People's Republic of China. An assessment of the Civil Aviation Training Centre of Sri Lanka has recently been carried out for its future participation in the TRAINAIR Programme.

  3. During the year 2000 and the first half of the year 2001, approx. 80 ICAO Technical Cooperation initiatives are in various stages of planning and implementation in the Asia/Pacific Region. Notable technical cooperation initiatives in the Region include:



    1. Enhancement of Flight Safety Oversight Capabilities on country-specific and cooperative (sub-regional) basis
    2. Improvement of Aviation Security Infrastructure
    3. Upgrading of Civil Aviation Training Centres to join the ICAO TRAINAIR Programme
    4. Human Resources Development to support Air Traffic Services, Airport Planning and Airport Engineering
