ICAO Asia and Pacific Regional Office

ICAO Asia and Pacific Regional Office ICAO's Asia and Pacific (APAC) Regional Office is accredited to 38 contracting States

The Asia and Pacific Office was established in Melbourne, Australia in 1948 as Far East & Pacific Office. The Office was relocated to Bangkok, Thailand in 1955 and renamed as Asia and Pacific Office (APAC) in 1980. The APAC Office is accredited to 38 contracting States, and maintains liaison with 1 Non-Contracting State, two Special Administrative Regions of China and 13 other Territories. The Asi

a/Pacific Region covers vast airspace, with 50 Flight Information Regions. The primary role of the APAC Office is to foster the planning and implementation by the States of the ICAO provisions: International Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs), Procedures for Air Navigation Services (PANS) and Regional Air Navigation Planning, for the safety, security and efficiency of air transport. The diversity of the APAC Region as reflected in the different levels of air navigation system development and implementation of aviation security provisions, coupled with continued air traffic growth posed a major challenge. The attainment of safe, secure and environmental friendly air transportation across the Region will require a strong commitment and close collaboration amongst States, the aviation industry, and safety/security partners to ensure integrity, capacity building and support for ICAO initiatives. The APAC Office pledges its support to stakeholders and will continue its efforts to oversee the highest levels of aviation achievement in the Region.

The course addresses the critical needs of managing States' civil aviation master plans and integrating the civil aviation sector into national development plans. It also provides senior and middle managers of the State's Civil Aviation Authorities (CAAs) with the competencies required to develop, implement, and update a Civil Aviation Master Plan (CAMP), including the recovery from the impacts of COVID-19, following the relevant ICAO provisions. This USD1.62 million project aimed at developing a brand-new ICAO Training Package (ITP) and delivering the ITP to 500 nominees from 60 developing States through 20 regional and national training sessions. The regional session of the CAMP course in Nepal has participants from Bangladesh, India, Nepal , Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The next session of the CAMP course will be conducted in Bangkok, Thailand from 24 to 28 October 2022.
