Welcome address of CANSO Director General, Jeff Poole, to the CANSO Asia Pacific Conference, 7 May 2015

7 May 2015

Speaking at the 9th CANSO Asia Pacific Conference in Fukuoka, Japan, CANSO Director General, Jeff Poole, provided an update on the initiatives CANSO is currently undertaking that are transforming airspace in Asia Pacific. It is working with industry partners and States towards the goal of seamless airspace. To achieve this goal, there needs to be even greater cooperation between States and all parts of the aviation industry. While seamless sky is a single concept, in a region as large and diverse as Asia Pacific, there is no 'one size fits all' solution and we must recognise and take account of many different factors.

There are three important developments that give the Asia Pacific region a unique opportunity to drive forward its vision: technological advances; a greater willingness to cooperate across State boundaries; and the commitment of States to implement system upgrades.
