ICAO 법률 콘퍼런스… 코로나19 팬데믹 이후 처음 대면으로 서울서 개최
While many countries around the world are gradually lifting COVID-19 related travel restrictions, a major international aviation legal seminar is being held in South Korea.
The focus is on boosting recovery of the industry in the post-pandemic era.
Eum Ji-young brings the highlights from that session.
With borders reopening and international travel picking up again, the global aviation industry is gearing up for a major rebound from the COVID-19 crisis.
Key decision makers and legal experts from the global aviation sector have gathered in Seoul for the 2022 International Civil Aviation Organization Legal Seminar.
“The three-day seminar held in Seoul is the first face-to-face meeting of its kind since the start of the pandemic, with some 800 officials from a dozen nations exploring how to move forward in the post-pandemic era.”
Governed by the UN, the ICAO, which is made up of 193 member countries, got the seminar underway on Tuesday in cooperation with South Korea’s Ministry of Land Infrastructure and Transport.
The goal is to facilitate a quick and full return to pre-pandemic air traffic levels but with safe protocols in place.
“We need to promptly recover the harmonization of the requirements for international travel and be able to give assurances to government health authorities, the traveling public that the protocols in place cover sufficiently,… the needs or the risks that are generated and are safe.”
The Secretary General also congratulated South Korea on 70 years in the ICAO.
At the event, the Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport noted the aviation industry’s efforts that have been in place to cope with the pandemic.
“For the recovery of the aviation industry, governments around the world have come up with many support measures including financial aid. They have also eased restrictions to turn grounded passenger fleets to transport cargo. And to overcome the struggles and keep the aviation network alive, countries have created travel bubbles.”
He added that South Korea,…ranking fifth globally in terms of aviation traffic volume, will continue to help boost cooperation.
The country plans to secure an eighth term at the ICAO Council to contribute more for the advancement of the aviation industry.
