We welcome the invitation from ICAO Council President Kobeh to Taiwan’s civil aviation authorities to participate as guests in the 38th ICAO Assembly in Montreal September 24-October 4, 2013. We are encouraged to see that this arrangement was reached through international cooperation and appreciate the flexibility and support of both ICAO and its members. We continue to support Taiwan’s meaningful participation in multilateral organizations where its membership is not possible.

Taiwan’s active participation in this year’s Assembly will promote global aviation safety and security, and will strengthen ICAO as an institution.
