UAE Holding Regional Security Conferences ᒑ
Abu Dhabi will host the first-ever Arab Aviation Security Conference Feb. 6 to 9, 2006, and two months later, on April 3 to 6, Dubai will host the region’s largest aviation and maritime security event: the Airport, Port and Transport Security-Middle East (APTS-ME). Both events are organized and sponsored by local and regional governmental bodies including the Arab Civil Aviation Commission and the Arab Air Carriers Organisation, along with international regulatory bodies like ICAO.
One of the goals of these gatherings is establishing pan-Arab declarations and agreements on aviation and transport security, with the goal of bolstering the international credibility of Arab aviation and maritime enterprises. The organizers hope to use these forums as a mechanism whereby law enforcement and transport organizations communicate their requirements and concerns to one anoth
