Recipient States also continued to include substantial training for their nationals as part of the procurement component of their ICAO technical cooperation projects. In addition, 351 national staff benefited from training in new technologies and in the operation of equipment purchased through ICAO. 


The training of management, technical and operational personnel was particularly important in terms of improving State oversight capabilities.
