Welcome to the 54th Conference of Directors General of Civil Aviation Asia & Pacific Region

I have the honor to inform you that the 54th Conference of Directors General of Civil Aviation, Asia and Pacific Regions (“the 54th DGCA Conference”) will be held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia from 07 to 11 August 2017. On behalf of the Government of Mongolia, it is my pleasure to cordially invite you and your delegation to this Conference. Mongolia is honored to have this great opportunity to host this event.

The Theme Topic for the 54th DGCA Conference is:

“The Challenge of Managing Outcome Focused and Risk Based Regulations for Asia Pacific States”

Asia Pacific is a unique region in terms of cultural diversity and socio-economic development with the largest aviation market in the world. Considering the ever-changing global socio-economics and aviation development, a new approach is required to address safety priorities of States through introduction of risk based regulations. While coping with the rapid aviation development and challenges faced in implementation of ICAO SARPs, States need to cooperate and collaborate more closely.

Risk based regulations provide flexibility to the regulators with focus on achieving desired safety performance, breaking down the internal barriers to achieve ICAO’s regional and global priorities and targets in line with the Global Aviation Safety Plan. It will enable States to identify safety issues and allocate the limited resources to address the prioritised safety issues in the most effective manner. Therefore, States are encouraged to deliberate interactively at DGCA Conf/54 including sharing of experience and developing novel concepts and ideas to address the evolving challenges associated with use of risk based regulation.

To facilitate in the preparation for the Conference, I would request you to kindly take a note of the following administrative arrangements:
