A five-day Civil Aviation Master Planning (CAMP) Course is being held at the Civil Aviation Training Center (CATC)by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), in collaboration with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and with the contribution of the South South Cooperation Assistance Fund of China (SSCAF).

This was learned from CAAP spokesman Eric Apolonio, who said that the training course, sponsored by the SSCAF, is a resource mobilization training project implemented by ICAO to develop and deliver the training on Civil Aviation Master Planning to support the recovery of global aviation from the COVID-19 pandemic and other future challenges.

Apolonio said the course aims to provide senior and middle managers of civil aviation authorities (CAAs) with the competencies required to develop, implement, and update a Civil Aviation Master Plan (CAMP), in accordance with the relevant ICAO provisions.

Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Jaime Bautista, DOTr Undersecretary for Aviation and Airports Roberto Lim, ICAO Global Aviation Training Section Chief and Technical Cooperation Bureau Acting Deputy Director Diego Martinez Rodriguez, and Embassy of China Counselor Ji Lingpeng were present during the opening ceremony of the training course.

In his opening message, CAAP Director General Captain Manuel Antonio Tamayo encouraged the participants to fully utilize the workshop, adding, “This is a clear manifestation of the continuous and meaningful collaboration amongst the ICAO, the government of China, and the Philippines towards further improving local aviation.”
