India committed to ICAO's goals to achieve safety, security in aviation: Ashok Gajapathi Raju

Beijing: India is committed to the UN aviation agency's performance-driven and result-based goals to achieve consistent improvements in safety, security and environment, Union Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju has said.

The minister for Civil Aviation led an Indian delegation to the first 'Asia Pacific Ministerial Conference' held here.

The two-day conference which began on January 31 was held to address the issue of Universal Safety Oversite Audit Programme (USOAP) of the Montreal-based ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation).

The issues of air navigation were also discussed, as it was felt that there is no regionally coordinated future plans on Air Traffic Management like the SESAR in Europe or NextGen in USA, an official statement said.
