The ICAO boss made the remarks shortly after his arrival where he was welcomed by Transport Minister, Dr Harrison Mwakyembe and other government officials.

Mr Benjamin, who landed in Dar es Salaam’s Julius Nyerere International Airport from Ethiopia where he had also held an official tour, will be in the country for five days.

The visit, among other things, is aimed at making a follow-up on efforts of contracting states in meeting their obligations under the Chicago Convention for the safe operations of international civil aviation.

Mr Benjamin said that the visit would also be vital as ICAO will consequently learn major areas of interest in the aviation industry in Tanzania and Africa in general.

“We are putting a lot of emphasis on the safety and security of air transport sector, these are our must, we arealso looking for economic vibrant areas of aviation sector,” he said.

Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) Acting Director, Mr Charles Chacha noted that the visit was highly significant for Tanzania, as it would be in a position to learn a number of things to improve the aviation sector.

Mr Chacha noted that in his official tour of Tanzania, the ICAO chief will hold discussions with senior government officials from the Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Communication of Zanzibar and aviation stakeholders.

“He is also expected to pay a courtesy call to the President Jakaya Kikwete and the Zanzibar president. He will also visit and see aviation infrastructure developments and improvements in the country supporting the safety air navigation,” Mr Chacha stated.
