Luanda - The Minister of Transport, Ricardo D'Abreu, Wednesday in Luanda said that the approval of the National Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC) will allow Angola to raise its performance indicators in the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) audits.

The Cabinet minister was speaking to members of Parliament, as part of the discussion of the Proposed Law on the Statute of the National Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC), approved today by the 1st and 5th working committees of the National Assembly (AN).

According to the justification report, with the approval of this proposal the Angolan State will be equipped with the necessary instruments to raise the level of effective implementation of the standards, practices and recommendations of the ICAO, under the scope of the Chicago Convention of 1944.

The transport minister said that, in terms of legislation, the country currently had a level of compliance of around 56 percent.

He explained that one of the fundamental aspects of Angola's performance that was not better was related to legal and organisational compliance, according to the ICAO, the body that regulates and supervises the civil aviation sector.

According to the government official, after approval of the law, Angola will be in conformity and, from then on, will have greater clarification from the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

He made it known that one of the fundamental requirements for Angola to be able to rise to the performance level of the ICAO's operational and universal audits is to have an institutional framework that obeys the principles and requirements of this entity.

"Therefore, there is a need for us to institute, in fact, a body that raises us to the levels of compliance with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation," he pointed out.
