The Attorney-General and Minister responsible for Civil Aviation, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum met the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) president, Olimuyiwa Benard Aliu and secretary general, Fang Liu and discussed a number of bilateral and regional matters.

Through their discussions, Fiji has also been given the opportunity to host ICAO’s Conference of Directors General of Civil Aviation in the Asia and Pacific Region in 2018.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said: “This is not only a wonderful opportunity for us to host and showcase Fiji to 38 States including the first, second and fourth largest populated countries in the world, but to demonstrate our regional civil aviation capacity and challenges.”

It is expected that approximately 300 delegates will attend the Conference including aviation services providers and observer countries from outside the Asia Pacific Region.

Fiji has also been asked to accommodate capacity building workshops and seminars for the Pacific Region under the auspices of ICAO.
