The Deputy PM said the fast-growing civil aviation has greatly contributed to Vietnam’s economic growth and integration into the world, pointing out certain challenges that need to be addressed soon, including overload at key airports, modest services quality, and ineffective flight management.
He highlighted the importance of ICAO’s cooperation programmes and technical assistance to improve the flight management and operation capacity of Vietnam’s aviation personnel.
Dung asked ICAO to continue providing technical aid and information so that the country can manage flight information regions under its management efficiently.
The organisation was also called to support Vietnam to send a permanent representative to ICAO and run for a position in Part III (states ensuring geographic representation) in the 2022-2025 tenure, thus raising the country’s stature in the global civil aviation.
Vietnam supports ICAO’s viewpoint on the implementation of a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the aviation industry, he said while asking ICAO to consider helping Vietnam build a system for monitoring aviation fuel consumption.
The ICAO Council President hailed Vietnam's civil aviation sector’s efforts to ensure flight safety and operation regulations and standards.
Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu suggested the Vietnamese Government and the civil aviation sector focus on improving manpower quality and the administration and management capacity of the civil aviation authority and pledged his best efforts to help the country with the civil aviation development.
