Dubai to host global civil aviation event
Virginia (US), April 8, 2012
The Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) has offered its formal endorsement of the 2012 Apco Global Congress, a premier public safety communications event to be held in Dubai from May 1 to 3.
The event will bring leading experts from across the globe who will showcase the vast array of technology and education available to public safety professionals in the global arena.
The event will also offer practitioners a chance to better understand the needs and concerns of diverse geographic and political regions so they can provide the most advanced and efficient technologies.
The DCAA was established as an autonomous body to undertake development of Air Transport Industry in Dubai and to oversee all aviation related activities.
Aviation Security, one of the many functions of the DCAA, is responsible for ensuring the security processes at each of Dubai’s airports comply with international and national standards.
The section also reviews and accepts the airport security program of both Dubai International and Al Maktoum International airports. There is a great benefit of public safety and civil aviation working together to develop a comprehensive response to major events, disasters and drills.
Mutual understanding of industry counterparts and their roles creates a better working relationship. This cooperative effort helps ensure a more expedient response to emergencies, said a senior official.
'There is a great area of crossover between civil aviation and public safety. These two industries work in concert to keep the public safe,' remarked Apco Global Alliance chair Geoff Spring.
'The endorsement of DCAA further emphasizes this point, showing how we can transcend the boundaries of geography and industry to share knowledge, experience and expertise,' he stated.
'We are honored to have their endorsement underscoring the importance of this event,' he added.
Delegates will learn the latest best practices and research in educational sessions led by international experts.
Besides the UAE, representatives from Australia, Germany, New Zealand, Nigeria, Romania, United Kingdom, and the US will be attending the 2012 Global Congress.-TradeArabia News Service
