UAE, ICAO to develop global civil aviation management, cyber security


The UAE government has signed a strategic partnership aiming to exchange best practices, knowledge and expertise in aviation and cyber security with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed during the World Government Summit (WGS2022) in Dubai, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai.

The agreement focuses on accelerators and innovation in civil aviation, online security and development modules, while supporting the exchange of expertise which supports the global aviation sector.

Mohammed Al Gergawi said that the UAE is keen on promoting mutual work and positive impact between governments, reflecting its leadership’s approach to transferring the UAE’s knowledge and successful business models, ensuring the achievement of the sustainable development goals.

“The UAE government’s approach has become an international model for shaping the future and designing innovative solutions to tackle global challenges,” he said.

He emphasized that the partnership with ICAO is yet another step towards empowering global human capital in the civil aviation sector – one of the UAE’s primary sectors which hosts some of the largest and most successful airlines around the world. Mohammed Al Gergawi commended the training programmes and advanced tech support the UAE provides to several nations to enhance aviation security and safety.

For his part, Salvatore Sciacchitano, President of the ICAO Council, highlighted the importance of having frameworks in place to facilitate partnerships between international organisations and governments, leveraging shared knowledge to find solutions for challenges societies are facing.—Khaleej Times
