State President meets int’l aviation head
President Triet affirmed that the ICAO leader’s visit is of great significance to the development of Vietnam ’s civil aviation sector.
He stressed that the Vietnamese aviation industry’s strengths of safety and flight security are great advantages, and these strengths are appreciated by both domestic foreign passengers.
President Triet asked ICAO to boost its cooperation with Vietnam in personnel training and civil aviation security.
Roberto Gonzalez spoke highly of the opportunities and potential offered by the development of Vietnam ’s civil aviation sector.
He said that the volume of passengers and goods transported by air has steadily increased by 20 and 60 percent respectively over the past year, creating opportunities for the development of the world’s civil aviation industry. However, this development cannot be separated from safety and security issues and ICAO wished to cooperate closely with Vietnam in effectively dealing with these issues.
Vietnam is valued by ICAO for its impressive record in aviation safety and security, Roberto Gonzalez said.
He also highlighted the effective use of human resources in civil aviation, particularly with regard to pilots. He recommended that Vietnam should adopt current ICAO regulations allowing pilots to continue flying until the age of 65 to avoid wasting this valuable human resource.
He stated that ICAO is ready and willing to expand the scope of its cooperation with Vietnam regarding the training of personnel.
