Ethiopian Airlines will host the ICAO Global Air Cargo Development Forum with the theme: “Action for the Sustainable Development of Air Cargo in Africa”, to be held at the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) conference hall from 27-29 June 2017.

The forum is anticipated to allow policy-makers, air transport regulators, representatives from the aviation industry and other stakeholders, to review progress towards implementation of the Lomé Declaration, identify challenges and opportunities and building on the decisions of the 39th ICAO Assembly.

Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, said: “As the largest cargo operator in Africa, we are pleased to host this vital communication platform, which builds upon the Declaration on the development of Air Cargo in Africa and commit a roadmap for priority actions. With the aim of complementing the booming African economy, Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services has availed the most efficient air cargo services within, to and from Africa: expanding cargo destinations across the globe; inaugurating the first phase of a state of the art cargo Terminal II, which together with the second phase has annual uplift capacity of 1.2 million tons, and automating its entire cargo business process with one of the best cargo IT systems. I believe, this forum will create an ample opportunity for participants to see the immense potential Ethiopian Cargo and Logistics Services has developed to ensure easy cargo movement across the continent and beyond, while enjoying side visits to the beautiful natural and historic attractions at the Land of Origins. ”
