At the Global Aviation Safety forum on Regional Safety Oversight Organizations in Swaziland, The European Union (EU) and South Asian states announced the launch of a new project to enhance the two regions’ ties in civil aviation.
The four-year project will include the South Asian countries of Afghanistan, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and is aimed at enhancing aviation safety, promote institutional and industrial links, and mitigating the environmental impact of aviation.
According to Patrick Ky, EASA’s director, “South Asia has the highest forecast traffic growth of any region in the world over the next 20 years. Europe looks forward to partnering with South Asia to meet the opportunities and challenges this presents.”
The project has received €7.5 million (UD$8.1 million) from the EU and will also promote technical cooperation at a regional level while enhancing the EU-South Asia policy dialog.
