Stakeholders in the region’s aviation sector converged in Entebbe, Uganda for the 2nd East African Community Civil Aviation Safety and Security Oversight Agency (EAC-CASSOA) to discuss their roles in enhancing aviation safety and security.

The conference is under the theme: ‘Linking Aviation Safety and Security: The Role of the Stakeholder’ was convened to examine new and emerging threats as far as aviation security in the region is concerned.

The challenges and impact of aviation security and the role of stakeholders in enhancing aviation safety were discussed.

Uganda’s State Minister for Foreign Affairs (Regional Affairs) Hon. Asuman Kiyingi opened the Symposium made a strong case for generating and storing reliable data for aviation safety and security.

“Availability of complete, accurate and reliable data is critical to establishing and maintaining safety and security programs and systems, while ensuring harmony,” he said.

The Minister also called for better funding to the sector as a key measure for ensuring the right facilities are put in place to pre-empt threats to security and safety.

“Without committing the much needed resources programs for safety and security cannot be implemented nor sustained,” Kiyingi observed, adding that committing resources relies on building strong mutual partnerships within the aviation industry.
