2 THE CHICAGO CONVENTION TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003THE CHICAGO CONVENTIONNovember 1944: At the invitation of the United States of America, 52 States met in Chicago to consider the problems in international civil aviation exacerbated by the Second World War. The outcome was the Convention on International Civil Aviation.The Chicago Convention is the origin of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).The 96 articles of the Chicago Convention established the privileges and restrictions of all Contracting States and provided for the adoption of the international Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) as contained in the 18 Annexes of the Convention.First international agreement was the cradle for for establishment, specification, unification and harmonization of minimum SARPs in civil aviation.60 years later. Still very relevant as these remain the basics of our work

This type of general overview of ICAO you will also be able to find on ICAO’s website. Of course, my colleague Mr Ohara will provide us with an introduction in a few minutes.Are there comments or questions of comprehension, i.e. of general nature on ICAO so far before I proceed to a broad explanation of ICAO’s TCB?
10 TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAU TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAUICAO’s TCB is the pre-eminent multi-lateral provider of TC in civil aviation worldwide, on not-for profit basis.It executes more than 150 TC projects with at least 100 experts worldwide, at any given time.
11 TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAU HISTORY TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAU HISTORY3 August 1949: The United Nations Economic and Social Council initiates technical cooperation activities through the “Expanded Programme of Technical Assistance for Economic Development” (EPTA).1949: ICAO Council approves ICAO’s participation in EPTA.1950: ICAO’s Fourth Assembly endorses the Council’s decision to cooperate with EPTA.1950: ICAO’s Council delegates to the President of the Council the authority to determine the technical cooperation to be provided by the Organization.TCB = basically 55 years old in 2004!President of ICAO still up til to date approves each and every TC project of ICAO.
12 HISTORY OF TCB (2)1958: The UN General Assembly establishes a Special Fund for complex technical cooperation projects.1960: ICAO signs an agreement with the Special Fund.1965: The UN General Assembly establishes the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), which incorporates both EPTA and the Special Fund.1975: ICAO signed with UNDP the agreement that designate the UN Specialized Agencies to act as UNDP executing agencies.: UNDP’s funding for civil aviation diminishes.: Recipient States, multi-/bilateral funding make up for the shortfall in ICAO’s TC Programme2003-:TCB’s Programme further expands through MSAs and CAPS

26 ICAO TECHNICAL COOPERATION BY REGION IN 2003 (estd.) TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003ICAO TECHNICAL COOPERATION BY REGION IN 2003 (estd.)(US dollars)Pink slice of the pie: Asia/PacificThis concludes the second part of my presentation.Any clarifications or comments so far?
27 TCB - GENERALASIA & PACIFIC23 July 2003Seems to be a projection view from down-under, considering the relative sizes of the sub-regions and countries.I like to start my briefing about ICAO’s TC Programme in this region with some facts and figures about the development of civil aviation in Asia/Pacific, in terms of:- airline traffic growth, best reflecting demand- major airports and construction projects- and with some infrastructure deficiencies and requirements as per the ICAO SARPs and regional air navigation plan.
28 TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003One of the broadest measures of growth in CA is to look at Total Tonne-Kilometers performed by scheduled airlines. This is due to the fact that, of cause, demand drives performance of airlines which, in turn, drives infrastructure development on the ground, that most of us deal with every day.As you can see if you look at the orange color on the screen, by 2002 carriers of this region performed almost 30 per cent of total tonne kilometers performed worldwide. We get an even better indication about the economic drivers in this region when looking at the traffic on international routes covering passenger and cargo traffic which facilitate international trade in both goods and services which is more than one third.From the performance and share of airline traffic by carriers registered in the Asia/Pacific region we get an impression of the importance and advancement of airline performances backed by airport infrastructure development, air navigation services, etc. and the required capital investments.Let us now look briefly at the historical trend and future growth path for just passenger traffic.
29 So, what do ICAO’s traffic forecasters tell us: TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003Airlines of ICAO's currently 188 Contracting States carried 1,615 million passengers on international and domestic scheduled flights and recorded 2,942.4, so almost 3 trillion passenger-kilometres performed (PKP) in the year That year the A/P share (red colour) worldwide in passenger traffic had reached one fifth on domestic routes and almost one third on international routes.Of course we have to look at the traffic development over a longer period to appreciate the growing demand for air transport services in Asia/Pacific.Not on the screen, but during the period total passenger traffic grew worldwide at a 4.7 per cent rate, while traffic in Asia/Pacific expanded at an average rate of 7.6 per cent per annum, that is to say in real terms carriers performed 360 billion PKPs in 1991 and had more than doubled that performance a decade later with close to 750 billion PKPs. Again traffic on international routes had an even faster expansion rates.As we are all aware, behind these regional statistics is quite a diverse picture of sub-regional and national economic forces and pressure on the air transport systems to keep pace with the increasing demand of in-bound and out-bound traffic for passenger and cargo with major traffic flows on both intercontinental and intra-regional route networks.So, what do ICAO’s traffic forecasters tell us:
30 Passenger Traffic Forecast 2003-05 TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003Total Passenger Kilometers Performed (PKP) vs yearsBefore I go into this forecast, let me recap the figures for 2002 and 2003:Total growth PKP worldwide in 2002: 0.4%Asia/Pacific in 2002: 5.5%Total growth PKP worldwide in 2003 est’d: 0%Asia/Pacific in 2003 est’d: -0.8%which was event-related due to SARS and affected certain routes heavily.As you can see on the screen, world average passenger traffic is expected to rebound this year to 4.4 per cent and to 6.3 per cent in 2005.Not on the screen but already forecast is that this region is now poised to resume the above-average performance of carriers to 4.9% forecast for 2004 and 6.8% for 2005.
31 AIRCRAFT DELIVERY PROJECTIONS WORLDWIDE - next 20 years - TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003AIRCRAFT DELIVERY PROJECTIONS WORLDWIDE - next 20 years -Passenger aircraft~ 6000 A/C in Asia-Pacific~ A/C in totalA little busy this slide, but there is no need to go into details and you will find a copy provided to you in any case:A further broad measure of demand put upon the air transport systems are the fleet requirements of airlines and again the relative importance of carriers in the Asia/Pacific region.Aircraft purchases & leases signify one of the largest investments in CA.(Screen)Cargo aircraft~ 3400 A/C in total~ 600 A/C in Asia-Pacific
32 TCB - GENERAL23 July 20032000Third measure of major requirements on the air transport system: airportsVery large part of investment in CA.World wide total airports: almost 4,000(Screen)Among the 194 international airports of the region, we find some of the busiest airports in the world in terms of passenger throughput and cargo handling.
33 MAJOR AIRPORT DEVELOPMENT ASIA/PACIFIC 2003-2006 TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003MAJOR AIRPORT DEVELOPMENT ASIA/PACIFICChina Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Huadu, Huanglong, Kunming, Sichuan, Shenyang, Chengdu, Shuangliu, Wenshen, Urumqi, Wuhan, Haiku, DalianIndia Bangalore, GoaIndonesia Padang, MedanIran TehranMalaysia Tawau, BintuluMongolia Ulaan BataarMyanmar YangonNepal LumbiniPakistan SialkotPhilippines Bacolot, Iloilo, Palawan, Southern Philippine AirportsRep. of Korea IncheonSingapore ChangiSri Lanka ColomboThailand BangkokVanuatu Port VilaAnd another forecast which is also a further measure of demand: developments announced of major airportsMore home-grown listing, based upon airport development announced or notified to ICAO.List not all-encompassing!Total of 35 airports under construction and development or planned for the next 3 years.And do bear in mind that this comes after a series of major airport constructions and developments in this region: Tokyo Haneida, Hong Kong, Seoul Incheon, Kuala LumpurSome of these airport developments have already commenced, such as Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok. And we are happy to have with us representatives of Airports of Thailand Co. Ltd. Who will be so kind to provide you with a presentation on their very large-scale project tomorrow, including on ICAO’s substantial involvement in it.
34 TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003MAJOR DEFICIENCIES REPORTED AGAINST SARPs & REGIONAL ANP ASIA/PACIFICATM : air routes, airspace, ATM, WGS-84, AIP, SARCNS - 3 : VHF, HF, AFTNAirports - 14 : runways, taxiways, obstacles, approach/airfield lighting, RFF, PAPIS, markings, parking area, emergency plan, bird controlMET : observation, reporting and briefing services, SADIS/VSAT, volcanic & cyclone watch, SIGMET disseminationSource: APANPIRG/14 ReportLastly, a further angle: SARPs and Air Navigation Plan related major deficiencies reported to ICAO and reflected in the APANPIRG/14 report.(Screen)You may ask yourself why I have shown to you such statistics.I wanted to recap to everyone the importance and the relative size as well as major development requirements in CA in this Region, because this increase in demand for air transport and these related development requirements is what drives TC, including ICAO’s TC.
35 ODA IN AIR TRANSPORT Asia/Pacific 1998-2002 TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003ODA IN AIR TRANSPORT Asia/PacificSo then, in more general terms and before I go into the funding sources for ICAO’s TC Programme, where have major so called external funds to foster CA in the Asia/Pacific region originated from in the past ?These two charts show the contributions made cumulatively in this Region over the period in terms of Official Development Assistance by member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).(Screen)ODA grants (top). In case you can’t see it properly: in this Region have been provided by to a large extent by the governments of Australia, Japan, France and the USAODA loans in this Region are predominantly given by JapanOf course, while you see here the ODA sources, I will now show you how many projects were financed and annual breakdown over these 5 years.GrantsLoansOfficial Development Assistance (ODA)Source: OECD
36 ODA IN AIR TRANSPORT Asia/Pacific 1998-2002 TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003ODA IN AIR TRANSPORT Asia/PacificODA Grants13111087Then, here comes ODA in terms of number of ODA grant and loan projects and amounts over the same period:ODA grants reduced substantively, in numbers as well as in amountsODA loans, with a decrease in numbers and a decrease in amounts from 1999 to 2001, the loan amounts increased substantially in 2002.Summary: by far most of the major funding provided for civil aviation is provided nowadays through loans. (These loans, in this Region, are again mostly provided through the ADB and JBIC, with a few loans provided for by Korea Ex/Im and other smaller banks.)This, please bear in mind, is of course not showing the far higher amounts for CA development provided from Govts, airport authorities, airlines and ANS providers’ own resources. It also doesn’t cover external resources that are provided by non-governmenental organizations. These figures only cover funds for ODA.ODA Loans
37 TECHNICAL COOPERATION BUREAU ASIA / PACIFIC PROGRAMME 2003 TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003TECHNICAL COOPERATION BUREAU ASIA / PACIFIC PROGRAMME 2003Estimated Programme amount: US$ 5.6 MillionNumber of approved projects: 62Pipeline projects (advanced stage): 12 incl. 3 CASPsSo, what is ICAO TCB doing about all those development requirements?TCB Asia/Pacific Section: highest number of approved projects under implementation, also highest number of so-called high pipeline projects, that is projects in advanced stage of approval.(Screen)

At least with me, believe me I am following all the articles on SARS I can lay my hands on. Ask me about the name of these furry animals the authorities in Guangzhou discovered the latest virus in last week and on which they carried out DNA sequences and I know. (Civet Cats).May all of our gods may please help us that this ICAO project may no longer be needed.
39 TECHNICAL COOPERATION BUREAU ASIA / PACIFIC Programme Funding Sources TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003TECHNICAL COOPERATION BUREAU ASIA / PACIFIC Programme Funding SourcesProjects funded by:recipient governments, authorities & industries in CA 57multi/bilateral funding institutions and other contributorsAsian Development BankWorld BankEuropean CommissionAirbus & BoeingFAATransport CanadaGovt. of SingaporeNORADUNDP(NATO)(TSA)(Screen)1. By far most of the projects implemented by ICAO in this region are self-financed by the recipients. This is, of course, a reiteration of the relative health of CA in this region, as it is able to finance many CA projects by itself.2. The range of multi-bi-lateral contributors, except for the first two financial institutions listed, provide their funds on grant basis.Loan funding is small, at present representing approx. 10% of the TC programme of ICAO in this Region. Most of these loans are provided through the ADB.
40 TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAU ASIA / PACIFIC PROGRAMME Outlook TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAU ASIA / PACIFIC PROGRAMME OutlookBackgroundIncreasingly growing importance of civil aviation of Asia/Pacific in the worldwide contextVast range of development needs, thus of technical cooperation requirements in Asia/Pacific, whether it be in CAAs, airports, ANS providers or airlinesOutlookPotential for ICAO to become even more involved in technical cooperation projects in order to foster safe, secure, regular and economic air transport through ensuring SARPs compliance, audit fulfillment and quality assuranceI conclude the third part of my presentation focussing on this Region with, in a nutshell, two messages:I have demonstrated:(Screen)The outlook for ICAO’s Asia/Pacific Programme looks, therefore, like this to us:We should bear in mind that ICAO is the representative organization of practically all of the States of this world, that is of all of you (barring one represented here, which is hopefully to join soon). ICAO is the Standard setting organization in CA of the world. ICAO has been mandated by all of its Contracting States to provide as much assistance to its members as possible in order to foster safe, secure, regular and efficient air transport by trying to ensure that its Standards and Recommended Practices are properly met, audit requirements are fulfilled and that quality is assured in TC.We in TCB believe that – in the interest of supporting and implementing this mandate and of assisting its Contracting States to the best of our abilities, TCB should be involved in as many CA development projects as we can and as is feasible. Again, we believe that involvement of ICAO in such projects assists States and financiers alike in making certain that SARPs compliance, audit requirements, quality is assured.Within the Asia/Pacific Programme of TCB, we believe that CA development and TC in this Region can be characterized by the following main points:Countries in this Region are very diverse, i.e. by far less homogenous than in other Regions, in terms of geography, history, culture, religion, language etc., including of course in the CA sector.CA in many countries of this Region is successful, competitive and profitable. Many States of this Region are able to fully finance their CA Sector with access to commercial funding sources and some States may no longer need much TC.3. TC in CA is competitive in this Region which boasts a relatively large number of commercial TC providers.Again, all of this we consider good news, because it means that CA in Asia/Pacific is alive and well, this is to say prosperous and expanding – and relatively healthy, at least financially speaking!We believe, however, that even more benefits can be derived by Contracting States and other partners in the increased utilization of ICAO’s TC services.How can ICAO’s member States, airport authorities, air navigation service providers and airlines make better use of our TC services? How can we better help to address all those development requirements highlighted earlier? While this is the subject of further presentations from my colleagues later in this Seminar, I have made up a preliminary list:
41 TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAU ASIA / PACIFIC PROGRAMME Outlook (2) TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAU ASIA / PACIFIC PROGRAMME Outlook (2)TCB should gain access to additional major financing institutions and cooperating partners for increased association with grants/loans for civil aviationRecipient States and financing partners may wish to increasingly utilize ICAO’s technical cooperation for SARPs compliance, fulfillment of audit requirements, quality assurance, contract supervision and execution of grants and loan components of CA infrastructure projectsAirport authorities, ANS providers and airlines may wish to consider low costs and other benefits of entering into Management Service Agreements with ICAO’s TCBCA administrations, airport authorities, ANS providers and airlines may wish to evaluate the major benefits of equipment procurement using ICAO’s Civil Aviation Purchasing Service (CAPS)Here they are:(screen)
42 TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAU Particular Strengths TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAU Particular StrengthsIn-depth experience with all facets of civil aviation development in the Region since almost 50 yearsSpecialized expertise across civil aviation, frequently from within the RegionQuality Assurance, SARPs Compliance, Audit Fulfillment, Harmony with Regional ANPDirect, often personal contact with almost all CA administrationsAccess to major financing institutions and cooperating partners involved in civil aviation within the RegionCooperative, competent, independent, efficient and cost-effective, not-for-profit… in other words: ICAO’s Technical Co-operation Bureau is part of YOUR organization ICAO, so why not use it more to your advantage?Finally, I leave you with points of particular strengths that we in TCB and in particular in the Asia/Pacific Programme humbly believe to have built over the last more than 50 years of experience with all parties concerned:
43 THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION TCB - GENERAL23 July 2003TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION BUREAUMany thanks for listening so patiently.Any clarifications, questions?How your organization can do that to make more use of TCP to your advantages and benefits, this is the objective of the presentations of my colleagues from TCB which are to follow.Here is Mr Alistair O’Hara, Systems Analyst of TCB who will introduce you to ICAO’s and in particular TCB’s cyber world.THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION
