I informed you last week that TIACA enrolled in the “Technical group on joint actions related to COVID-19”. The group consists of ICAO, WHO, IATA, ACI, GEA (Global Express Association) and TIACA. It’s chaired by ICAO.
Objectives of the Group
The Group lays groundwork for the unified pitch to governments addressing all the emerging issues. TIACA sees its role in the Group as using ICAO’s mechanism to reach out to the States and remind them that air cargo is a great contributor to the global economy and international trade, and that it plays a very important role in preventing and battling the disastrous effect of the coronavirus.
Last Monday, March 16, TIACA, GEA and IATA made input to the work of the Group presenting air cargo issues. We were urging the authorities to create the proper environment for cargo operations with concrete requests received from the members.
