The Ministerial Conference on Aviation Security and Facilitation held in Windhoek, Namibia in April 2016 made a Declaration, which included Aviation Security and Facilitation Targets to be implemented by all AFI States. The Conference further directed the AFI SECFAL Plan Secretariat to come up with modalities to implement the recommendations and decisions made by the Ministers and the implementation of the Windhoek Ministerial declaration and targets.
The Third AFI SECFAL Plan Steering Committee meeting held in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea on 1 July 2016 also directed the AFI SECFAL Plan Secretariat to coordinate the development of an Action Plan, which is the basis of the Action Plan meeting that will be held from 25 to 26 October 2016.
You will recall that in line with the Terms of Reference (ToRs) of the Regional Aviation Security and Facilitation Group (RASFALG–AFI), the group should meet twice a year. In this regard therefore, the meeting scheduled for 27- 28 October 2016 will be the third meeting of the Group.
