aTP- Arab tourism portal News- Montréal, – ICAO Secretary General Dr. Fang Liu and European Union Director-General for Mobility and Transport Mr. Henrik Hololei signed a new Decision yesterday formalizing ICAO/EU enhanced cooperation in the fields of Air Traffic Management and Air Navigation Services (ATM/ANS).

The Decision to adopt a new ATM/ANS Annex entered into force upon its signing and serves as a third Annex within the framework of the Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) originally signed by the EU and ICAO in Montréal on 28 April 2011, and in Brussels on 4 May 2011.
