Mr. Voradej Harnprasert, Director General of the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) stated that DCA has been given the honour to host the 50th Conference of Directors General of Civil Aviation, Asia and Pacific Regions: DGCA/50. The Conference is the departmental level of meeting among 38 Contracting States to Convention on International Civil Aviation throughout Asia and the Pacific regions together with 10 major international civil aviation organisations from around the world.

“The fact that Thailand has been given the honour from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to be the host for the Conference of Directors General of Civil Aviation, Asia and Pacific Regions this year I believe it is a good opportunity. Hosting the Conference this time is special as it is the 50th Conference. Up to now the global civil aviation has been growing extensively and it is in the same direction as the expansion rates of air transport in Asia and the Pacific regions. Therefore, it is the Contracting States’ responsibility to come up with measures to make civil aviation and air transport activities more secure and safe. More importantly, it has to be stable and sustainable.” Said the Director General.

The objective of this Conference is to review and exchange information as well as ideas regarding important civil aviation issues that the international community is currently paying attention to especially at the regional level. The Conference will also aim to support collaboration in civil aviation in the region along with providing information about compliance with policy, regulations, and harmonisation of laws in Asia and the Pacific. In addition, the Conference will allow Contracting States to present the progress of civil aviation activities in their countries over the past year whereby it will lead to further collaboration in resolving problems and tackling obstacles of civil aviation in the Asia and Pacific regions. Furthermore, this will assist in the liaison and the follow-up of important civil aviation issues in an accurate and timely manner.

          Details of the 50th Conference of DGCA will be on the importance of innovations and targets for increased safety, enhanced security, and sustainability of Asia and Pacific aviation. It will include technical discussions related to innovation in aviation; security measures based on international civil aviation regulations; economic development of air transport; civil aviation and the environment; improvement implementation measures of energy for sustainable civil aviation; civil aviation security and facilitation; countermeasures of force majeure; and any other concepts or innovations related to the safety of civil aviation.

The ICAO Regional Office is located in the Thailand; therefore, being the host this time will also support ICAO activities. Additionally, it will show Thailand’s performance and leadership in civil aviation in the region. Further collaboration between civil aviation authorities in Asia and the Pacific regions, and Thailand will also be strengthened. There will be around 300 to 500 representatives attending the Conference.
