M'sia will work with ICAO member states to expedite recovery of global aviation industry, says Dr Wee

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia will collaborate and cooperate with all member states of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) to expedite the recovery of the global aviation industry, said Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

“It is encouraging to see the global aviation industry slowly recovering, with more and more countries easing their restrictions and opening up borders.

“I assured our partners that Malaysia will collaborate and cooperate with all ICAO member states to expedite the recovery of the global aviation industry,” said the Transport Minister.

Dr Wee said this was the message he presented to international leaders at several receptions he attended after giving his statement at the 41st ICAO general assembly on Wednesday (Sept 28) afternoon.

Dr Wee attended a reception hosted by ICAO president Salvatore Sciacchitano, which was followed by a reception by the African Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC) and the joint Asia-Pacific reception, which Malaysia co-hosted.

“Lastly, I also thanked the countries that have pledged support for Malaysia in our bid for re-election,” he said.
