Aviation is the backbone of the global economy. A safe and resilient aviation system is essential to stability and growth in the United States and around the world. The industry is facing new and growing challenges, from cyber risks to the global pandemic.

The proper forum to lead the world on improving aviation safety and resilience is the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a specialized agency of the United Nations.

By leveraging data, building strong partnerships, and utilizing common frameworks, the global aviation community can enhance passenger safety by closing the safety gap between countries, and ensuring a resilient, robust system that can rapidly recover from the pandemic, and guard against accelerating cybersecurity threats.
