Egyptian Minister of Civil Aviation Minister of Civil Aviation, Mohamed Abbas, arrived in Montreal on Thursday to lead a delegation to represent Egypt at the 41st Assembly of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which kicked off Tuesday in the Canadian city.

Some two thousand ministers and senior government officials representing 167 States, as well as regional and global air transport industry organisations, took part on Tuesday in the opening of the 41st Assembly, which runs until next 7 October in Montreal, Canada.

In his remarks at the event, Abbas will shed light on Egypt’s vision about various issues and challenges facing the civil aviation industry, and the country’s role in support of the organization’s efforts for a better global air transport industry.
The ICAO Assembly is the organization’s sovereign body. It meets at least once every three years and is convened by ICAO’s governing body, the Council.
ICAO’s 193 Member States and a large number of international organizations are invited to the Assembly, which establishes the worldwide policy of the Organization for the upcoming triennium.
ICAO Secretary General Juan Carlos Salazar said the last three years had had a «critical impact» on the aviation industry and said the event should focus on priority areas, such as «the recovery and sustainability of air transport, agreements on carbon dioxide emission reduction goals, and ICAO’s implementation support policy and Transformational Objective to better serve its Member States».

The event’s agenda covers air transport and sustainability policies, the future of the air transport industry in light of ongoing challenges affecting global aviation safety and security, and ways to fight climate change and reduce environmental pollution in line with the organization’s Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).
