Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung
appreciated the active and effective support the International Civil Aviation
Organisation (ICAO) has given to Vietnam while receiving President of the ICAO
Council Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu in Hanoi on July 6.

The Deputy PM said the fast-growing civil
aviation has been contributing 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.

ICAO’s cooperation programmes and technical
assistance to improve the flight management and operation capacity of Vietnam’s
aviation personnel are very important, he added.

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.

The official noted that Vietnam supports ICAO’s
viewpoint on the implementation of a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in
the aviation industry. He asked ICAO to consider helping Vietnam build a system
for monitoring aviation fuel consumption.

For his part, the ICAO Council President said he
is impressed with the rapid development of Vietnam’s civil aviation. He
recognised the sector’s efforts to seriously and effectively implement flight
safety and operation regulations and standards.

There are hundreds of thousands of flights in
the world each day, and the figure will double in the next 15 years, he noted,
adding that most of this growth will occur in Asia-Pacific, where Vietnam is a
very potential market.

As the country’s air transport market will
continue to grow more strongly, it is necessary to invest more in
infrastructure, including airports, and manpower training, he said.

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.

He pledged to assist the country more strongly
and effectively in developing its civil aviation.-VNA
