Remarks of CANSO Director General at the CANSO Africa Conference

7 October 2014

At the CANSO Africa Conference, CANSO Director General Jeff Poole said that the air transport industry is a catalyst for supporting the growth of economies across Africa. He said Africa now has a unique opportunity to modernise its air navigation infrastructure. The combination of technological advances and States’ commitment to ASBU implementation mean there has never been a better time to implement infrastructure improvements. These would improve aviation safety; enhance efficiency for airlines; and increase connectivity to boost African GDP. Support and cooperation from industry partners and States is critical to making this happen.
