The President of the ICAO Council, Dr. Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu (below centre left), presented a Council President Certificate to Her Excellency Janice Miller (centre right), High Commissioner for Jamaica to Canada, in recognition of Jamaica’s exemplary aviation safety oversight improvements in 2016.
The event, which took place on 14 September 2017, was attended by Mr. Nari Williams-Singh, Director General of the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority (JCAA), and Dr. Janine Dawkins, Chief Technical Director at Jamaica’s Ministry of Transport and Mining and a Member of the Board of the JCAA.
The ICAO Council established the Council President Certificates in 2016 in support of the Organization’s No Country Left Behind initiative. Their aim is to more publicly acknowledge global activities and commitments geared toward the Effective Implementation of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices.
The eligibility criteria used for this recognition are objective and transparent and are based on the results of ICAO’s Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme Continuous Monitoring Approach activities.
