3rd Steering Committee Meeting
14 November 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. The European Union's 1.8 million Euro (approx. 20 million Zambian Kwacha) support under the Aviation Sector Support Programme, through an agreement with the European Air Safety Agency (EASA), continues to assist Zambia to enhance its air safety operations and management.
Under this technical assistance programme, on the 14th November 2018, representatives of the Ministry of Transport and Communications, European Union 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.
