The main objective of the 2019 AFI week events is to engage all of these participants on current challenges, and to suggest solutions or mitigation measures to address them.
Participants will seek to identify opportunities to improve the effective implementation of critical elements of the State safety and security oversight systems, and deliberate on emerging issues with special focus on safety and security concerns.
The AFI week event comprises several important meetings including:
the Sixth Aviation Safety Symposium – on 14th May 2019;
the Twenty-second Meeting of the Steering Committee of the Comprehensive Regional Implementation Plan for Aviation Safety in Africa (AFI Plan)- on 15th May 2019;

and The Eighth Meeting of the Steering Committee of the Comprehensive Regional Implementation Plan for Aviation Security and Facilitation in Africa (AFI SECFAL Plan) – on 17th May 2019.
The events will also provide an opportunity to highlight the benefits of aviation as an enabler to economic development, promote development of National Aviation Plans, raise awareness on air connectivity in Africa through the Single African Transport Market, and present the results of the Infrastructure Development Gap Analysis in Africa.
