ICAO Council: New regulatory approach needed for aviation to engage with innovators

ICAO Council president Dr Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu, speaking at the 2019 China Civil Aviation Development Forum, stated (16-May-2019) new regulatory policies and practices are needed in aviation so the sector can proactively engage with innovators and encourage, rather than impede, their inventiveness. Dr Aliu said technological innovations can "greatly accelerate the rate at which all countries and peoples can benefit even more from the significant and sustainable socio-economic impacts of air transport" noting that "related regulatory reforms must be accomplished in a manner which ensures that aviation retains the confidence of the travelling public as the safest and an efficient and reliable mode of transport".
