Ghana has received two awards at the on-going International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) 40th Triennial Assembly in Montréal.

The first of the UN agency’s award, known as the ICAO Council President Certificate in Aviation Security, was in recognition of Ghana’s progress in resolving aviation security and oversight deficiencies, and the country’s commitment to the effective implementation (EI) of its Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPS).

The second award, the ICAO Council President Certificate in Aviation Safety, was in recognition of strides Ghana made in 2018 towards the resolution of safety oversight deficiencies and improvement in the EI of related ICAO SARPs.

In April this year, Ghana obtained an EI rate of 89.89%, the highest by an African country, following ICAO’s conclusion of its Coordinated Validation Mission (ICVM) in Accra.

The two awards, Ghana’s first since the ICAO Council established the Council President Certificates in 2015, were received by the Minister for Aviation, Joseph Kofi Adda, who was joined by Ghana’s High Commissioner to Canada, Nii Ayikoi Otoo; the Director General of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Ing. Simon Allotey; and the Acting Managing Director of the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL), Yaw Kwakwa.
