ICAO's Unlawful Interference Committee (UIC) has unanimously elected Capt. Aysha Al Hamili, Representative of the United Arab Emirates on the Council of ICAO as Vice-Chairperson. Capt. Al Hamili will assist US Ambassador Duane Woerth who presides over the UIC.
UIC is one of the Council committees of ICAO that seeks to formulate recommendations on key aviation security priorities and issues to address current and emerging threats to civil aviation.
H.E. Saif Al Suwaidi, Director General of GCAA, underscored the "significant value of UAE's involvement in international efforts under the umbrella of ICAO." He added that "ICAO's committees are extremely important in the process of consensus building."
Capt. Al Hamili, who also chairs ICAO's Ad Hoc Working Group on MBMs, underscored, "Various actions that States have already been implementing. These include operational improvements, such as air traffic management modernization, and technological improvements, such as acceleration of the use of fuel-efficient air traffic technology."
Capt. Al Hamili's constructive participation in Council and Committee deliberations on aviation security combined with experience were highlighted during her nomination for this position. She has already held a number of important positions at ICAO, including Chairperson of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Market-Based Measures, Vice-Chair of the Air Transport Committee, and Vice-President of the ICAO Council. She is also a regular speaker at international conferences.
"This nomination comes as recognition of the leading role that the UAE exercises on international civil aviation and its unquestionable contribution to ICAO," Al Hamili commented.
