Australia provides aviation security training to Vietnam

The Australian Office of Transport Security, in partnership with the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam is delivering a workshop on aviation security regulation in Hanoi, Vietnam, between 15 and 18 November 2010.

The workshop will provide an opportunity for aviation security professionals from Australia and Vietnam to discuss ideas and share their knowledge on how to develop and implement aviation security regulations, to help improve aviation security in our shared region.

Mr Graeme Nicholas, First Secretary (Transport) Australian Embassy, Manila, said, “We are working together with Vietnamese aviation security officers to develop their understanding of how to implement aviation security regulations”.

“The delivery of aviation security training to Vietnamese officials ensures they are able to identify and respond to emerging and changing threats to aviation security. Aviation security regulation training will assist in providing the Vietnamese with the necessary legislative backing to respond to aviation threats. The response to the recent Yemen bomb plot demonstrates the very real and constant threat to aviation.”

“The Australian Office of Transport Security is very pleased to be able to assist the Vietnamese Government build their aviation security capacity.”

The project is being delivered with funding from AusAID’s APEC Public Sector Linkages Program through which Australian Public Institutions transfer skills and build capacity with their counterparts in developing countries.
