The signing ceremony, which took place on 25 November 2023, was attended by the Minister of Transport of Qatar, H.E. Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti (pictured centre).

Under the agreement, ICAO and HBKU will endeavour to cooperate on a broad range of aviation topics, encompassing key priorities such as the response to the climate emergency, the safe and secure integration of emerging aviation technologies like drones, cyber security and cyber resilience, and optimising air transport’s role as a catalyst for sustainable development. 

It is envisioned that this cooperation will comprise the development of studies, events, training, and other knowledge exchange and advocacy activities.
