ICAO welcomes Dominica

17 April 2019

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) now has 193 members, after the Caribbean island of Dominica officially joined the UN agency on 13 April.

ICAO President Dr Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu said that Dominican membership will help realise the objectives of the UN Agenda 2030 for sustainable development, while also boosting tourism to the country.

“Dominica will now be able to access the global guidance and support ICAO delivers through our No Country Left Behind initiative. It enables our member States to develop aviation policies, strategies, and capacity that are optimised in terms of unlocking the sustainable development benefits of international air connectivity,” said ICAO Secretary General Dr Fang Liu.
