ICAO reappoints secretary general for a second term

ICAO has extended secretary general Fang Liu’s mandate for a second three-year term, building on her initial appointment that started on Aug. 1, 2015.

Liu, who is from China, was the first woman to be appointed as ICAO secretary general and only the second ICAO chief to be elected from an Asia-Pacific state.

On March 16, the ICAO council agreed to extend Liu’s term for another three years, starting on Aug. 1, 2018.

During her first three years, Liu has worked to improve ICAO’s efficiency and effectiveness, particularly in safety and security. She has also strengthened ICAO’s partnerships, as well as the body’s regional, technical and training presence.

“Our foremost challenge is the unprecedented traffic growth along with the rapid advancements in aviation technologies. Our principal standard-making function will need to keep pace with these changes. Meanwhile, the time has come to consider a strengthened role for ICAO in implementation support,” Liu said. “My team and I are committed to the organizational culture shift to support this transformation.”

Prior to Liu’s election as secretary general, she served as director of ICAO’s bureau of administration and services for seven years. Before that, she spent over 20 years with the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).

France’s Raymond Benjamin also served two consecutive terms as ICAO secretary general, between 2009 and 2015.
