Seminar on Vietnam-US aviation cooperation

(VOV) - A seminar was held in HCM City on September 25 to discuss ways of developing Vietnam’s civil aviation sector as well as Vietnam-US aviation cooperation.

The event gave Vietnamese and US experts a chance to share experience in managing airport traffic, public-private partnership in aviation and certification of airplanes.

US Consul General in HCM City Rena Bitter said the US and Vietnamese Governments have enjoyed a dynamic partnership in the aviation sector, noting that the seminar will help US experts provide more support for Vietnam in this field.

The US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) has provided the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV) with over US$1 million to intensify efforts for safety conditions.  It has also funded many projects in Vietnam totaling more than US$20 million.
