The Secretary General of Africa Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC), Mr. Tefera Mekonnen, officially paid a courtesy visit to the President of Togo, Faure Essozimna Gnassingbé on December 10th 2019 at the presidential villa in Lome, Togo.
The Secretary General briefed the President who is also the Champion of Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM) alongside AU High Representative for Infrastructure H. E Mr. Raila Odinga on the progress and the way forward on the SAATM.
SAATM is an initiative of the African Union to create a single market for air transport in Africa. Once completely in force, the single market is supposed to allow significant freedom of air transport in Africa, advancing the AU’s Agenda 2063.
The two leaders agreed to continue with the advocacy in support of the SAATM to ensure all the remaining States sign up to the solemn declaration and fully implement the concrete measures
