makers and industry. Recognizing this need, ICAO has initiated a strategic project called the Aviation
Satellite Account (ASA).
Aviation Satellite Account - Draft Methodological Framework
Increase and improve existing understanding of aviation’s importance relative to overall economic activity in a State.
Enable States to highlight important inter-dependencies of the civil aviation sector with other sectors to sustain expected growth of economic activities such as tourism (and trades) as an export industry to the national economy.
Provide an effective instrument to States for designing and implementing policies to facilitate connectivity as well as investments into aviation, thus promoting the full economic and job creation potential offered by this activity.
Create outreach and awareness among various players involved with aviation of the direct economic importance of this activity and also its role as an economic contributor in all the industries involved in the production of goods and services demanded by aviation.
