GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC) — Two Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries have been selected among 12 countries to receive the Council President Certificate of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority said that Guyana and Jamaica had been named among the 12 countries for the “significant progress” they have made in resolving their safety oversight deficiencies and improving the effective implementation of ICAO standards and recommended practices.
The Council President Certificates are issued once each calendar year in recognition of States that have met the criteria during the previous year.

The other countries to receive the awards are Bolivia, Egypt, Honduras, Kazakhstan, Paraguay, Republic of Macedonia, Togo, Uruguay, Vietnam and Zambia.
