2nd Steering Committee Meeting
23 May 2018
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 second Steering Committee meeting in Lusaka, on 23 May 2018, where representatives of the Ministry of Transport and Communications, EU Delegation to Zambia and COMESA, Civil Aviation Authority, EASA, ZACL and other Industry representatives gathered to discuss the performance of the Aviation Sector Support Programme which will continue till 2021 and will provide further technical assistance to key institutions and sector stakeholders with a view to enabling Zambia to meet the required international standards for civil aviation.
