1.1 The objective of the Seminar, which was conducted within a framework of Special Implementation projects for the year 2005, was to provide States in the Middle East region with a better understanding of the ATM operational concept and its components, with the focus on the planning and implementation issues related to the approach towards a harmonized and evolutionary implementation of the global ATM operational concept.
2. SEMINAR PRESENTATIONS AND DISCUSSIONS
a. The Seminar acknowledges the need to consider the impact of the ICAO Global ATM Operational Concept, on the MID Region.
b. States in coordination with the ICAO MID Regional Office should take the leadership role in the regionalized, harmonized implementation of the ICAO Global ATM Operational Concept.
c. MID States in coordination with the ICAO MID Regional Office should identify the areas where immediate collaboration can be implemented and consequently benefits derived.
d. To meet the overall requirements of the ATM Operational Concept, States/ANSPs in coordination with the ICAO MID Regional Office, should create, as a matter of urgency, the mechanism to allow cooperation, to achieve global Collaborative Decision Making (CDM).
e. The ATM community members of the MID Region should consider the value of harmonization through an active participation in MIDANPIRG and its subsidiary bodies meetings.
f. Regulators and ANSPs should develop a common view and supporting process to fulfill their respective roles as members of the ATM Community and should interact in a coordinated and harmonized manner with the other members of the ATM Community.
g. For the preparation of the implementation of the ATM Operational Concept, States should develop as soon as possible a human resources and training plan for all Civil Aviation Staff with an early identification of training and recruitment needs linked to the Global concept.
