Badung, Bali - The Indonesian government and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) have inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to continue training assistance and capacity-building programs in the aviation sector for ICAO member states until 2026.

Indonesian Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi and ICAO president Salvatore Sciacchitano signed the MoU on the sidelines of a G20 aviation dialogue in Nusa Dua, Badung, Bali, on Tuesday.

Sumadi said the agreement is a manifestation of Indonesia's support for the ICAO’s "No Country Left Behind" program, particularly for creating quality human resources in the aviation sector.

Increasing capacity building of human resources is a crucial effort to strengthen aviation safety and security, he said.

"We have a program which ICAO is also carrying out (in the field of human resource capacity building) and according to our records, we are one of the countries which have leading (aviation) campuses, which are reckoned in the world," he added.

Meanwhile, Sciacchitano lauded the Indonesian government's leadership and commitment to increasing aviation safety and security.

"The MoU on training is a very important program for aviation in the future," he said.

ICAO has been running a program called "No Country Left Behind" since 2014 with the aim of mentoring member countries to help them apply the standards and practices recommended by ICAO in the aviation sector, he said.

Currently, 193 countries, including Indonesia, are members of the ICAO.

Indonesia has supported the program "No Country Left Behind" since 2021 through the Developing Countries Training Programme (DCTP), which has been specially designed for human resources in the aviation sector of developing countries.

The training program is entirely funded by Indonesia. The program’s participants, who are from ICAO member countries, receive training on Managing Aviation Training Intelligence (MATI), Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) Verification, and Training Managers Course (TMC).
