The High-level Conference on COVID-19 (HLCC 2021) was held from 12 to 22 October 2021. The record-high attendance by ministers and deputy ministers demonstrated their recognition of ICAO's leading role in the transport portfolio and advanced the profile of the aviation agenda at the political level. At the Ministerial Plenary (Closing) on 22 October 2021, ministers and deputy ministers reviewed and adopted the Ministerial Declaration on "One vision for Aviation Recovery, Resilience and Sustainability beyond the Global Pandemic". The adopted Declaration reflects comments in response to the consultation with States and discussions held during the Ministerial Plenary Sessions. While the Declaration is not a legally binding document, it demonstrates solidarity and determination, and conveys a strong political message to international communities and world economies.
States are encouraged to follow and implement the Ministerial Declaration in coordination with ICAO Regional Offices, according to their specific needs and circumstances. As part of the support for States' implementation, the key elements of the Declaration will be incorporated into the COVID-19 Response and Recovery Implementation Centre (CRRIC). This is the first Global Webinar on the Outcomes of the Conference (HLCC 2021) of a series that will promote and raise awareness of the Declaration.
