1st Steering Committee Meeting
6 December 2017
Since 2011, the European Union has been contributing to the development of Civil Aviation in Zambia and has built a strong partnership with both the relevant Ministries and the Zambian Civil Aviation Authority. This support contributed to the removal of Zambia from the European Union Air Safety List. Inclusion on the list had prevented Zambia registered air carriers from operating in European skies. In earlier years the European Union financed the development of airport infrastructure at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka and the Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport in Livingstone.
The EU-Aviation Sector Support Programme II to Zambia (EU-ASSP II-Z) held its first Steering Committee meeting in Lusaka, on 6 December 2017.
During this meeting, EASA presented the draft work plan for the next four years and all parties present discussed and reviewed it; whilst reaffirming the importance and their support to the project. Present at that meeting were representatives from the Ministry of Transport, the Civil Aviation Authority, EASA, ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), key sector stakeholders and the EU Delegation to Zambia and COMESA.
The project team will launch the first activities during the first quarter of 2018.
