Under the patronage and attendance of HE Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti, the first day of the CAPA Qatar Aviation, Aeropolitical and Regulatory Summit kicked off this Wednesday, 5 February, at Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel.
The summit, which was held in the presence of the president of Qatar’s Civil Aviation Authority, HE Abdulla bin Nasser Turki Al Subaey, was attended by ambassadors, officials and senior executives from the country’s aviation industry.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar Al Baker, delivered an inspiring keynote address on the first day of the conference in front of international delegates and decision-makers from across the aviation industry.
According to HE Al Baker, the timing of this years’ summit is perfect to engage in fruitful discussions and constructive debate. He said that more than ever, the (aviation) industry continues to show great levels of resilience in the face of adversity and disruption, and at the same time, remain a positive and constructive voice in improving regulatory frameworks across regions, especially in areas of sustainability and air liberalisation.
One of my core beliefs is that a liberalised aviation sector can be a great catalyst for global economic and human development. At Qatar Airways, we believe in connecting people with no borders, only horizons.
The CAPA Qatar Aviation, Aeropolitical and Regulatory Summit, which takes place from 5 – 6 February, features over 40 expert speakers from across the airline, legal and government sectors discussing the latest developments in international aviation regulation, both within the Gulf region and globally.
