Visit from Dr. Fang Liu, ICAO Secretary General, in Argentina

Last Friday 19 August, Dr. Fang Liu, International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) highest authority, visited Argentina for the first time.

In her tour in the Civil Aviation Accident Investigation Board (JIAAC) headquarters, the accountant Ana Pamela Suárez, ARCM Executive Committee President, presented the most outstanding points carried out since the establishment of the ARCM and the main achievements reached until today before the ICAO Secretary General.

“The 2014-2016 ICAO Global Aviation Safety Plan developed a continuous improvement strategy for the ICAO member States to use in the next 15 years trhough the establishment of aircraft safety systems at basic, intermediate and advanced levels”.

The programme establishes goals for the short, medium, and long term. During the period while Dr. Liu is in that position of authority in ICAO, the objective is that the ARCM achieves the implementation of an accident and incident investigation effective system, based on the SAM States cooperation for the GASP goals.

In turn, the Secretary General familiarized herself with the ARCM Project and expressed ICAO´s support to it; she also mentioned that this should be used as model for other regions.
