ICAO recognition of Kuwait's DGCA efforts 'honor' - Sheikh Salman AlSabah


The International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) recognition of Kuwait Directorate of Civil Aviation's (DGCA) efforts is an honor for all Kuwaitis, said the directorate's chief Thursday.
In his speech to the ICAO's 40th General Assembly in Montreal, Canada, after being chosen as First Vice-President of the Organization, DGCA's director Sheikh Salman Al-Sabah said that he appreciated the recognition bestowed by the 194-member organization.
He affirmed that the recognition also came due to the extensive efforts carried out by Kuwaiti aviation in the international scene.
Sheikh Salman Al-Sabah also hinted at the humanitarian role played by Kuwait on the regional and global spheres, saying that those working in aviation and air cargo sector played a huge role in implementing the directives of the Kuwaiti leadership in this regard.
On the sideline of the General Assembly, the DGCA director met with Singapore Minister of Transport Khaw Boon Wan, discussing with him ways to bolster cooperation within aviation security and air cargo.
