The Yamoussoukro Decision was adopted in Yamoussoukro, Cote d Ivoire on 14 November 1999 for the liberalization of access to air transport markets in Africa.
This Strategic Objective of AFCAC is designed to enhance Civil Aviation Security and Facilitation in Africa through the establishment of a strong Aviation Security System in Africa.
The objective of the Workshop is to review progress in the implementation of the SAATM Abidjan Prioritised Action Plan for the operationalisation of the Single African Air Transport Market and to agree on appropriate institutional arrangements that will enable AFCAC to effectively preform its roles as the specialised agency of the African Union and the Executing Agency of the YD and SAATM.
In that regard, the invited institutions are requested to prepare and present to the meeting an update report on concrete actions taken towards implementation of the Abidjan Action Plan and to indicate proposed actions for 2019, including any other on-going interventions in the civil aviation industry in Africa in general. The Abidjan action plan is hereby attached for your reference.
Kindly note that the outcome of this consultation meeting will form part the report of the Champion of the Single African Air Transport Market, to be delivered during the 32nd Ordinary Session of the African Union Assembly of Heads of State and Government scheduled for February 2019 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Furthermore, in line with the above-mentioned objectives, it is expected that at the end of the 2-day Workshop, an enhanced collaborative common platform for all Partners and Stakeholders in the Africa’s Civil Aviation industry will be established with well-defined roles and areas of interventions for all Partners and Stakeholders.
