Meeting of the EB at Buenos Aires. During the first day of the meeting the EB discussed how to improve communication within IFATCA to ensure that information about the work of the Federation is available to every MA.
During this first day, the EB received the report of the EVP Asia-Pacific and EVP Africa-Middle East about their regions. During the session, the EB got a telephonic update from the Ethiopian MA about their situation with several controllers put under arrest following an strike considered as illegal by the Ethiopian government. The EB studied how the escalation of tension can affect operations and safety and discussed ways for the Federation to help to normalize the situation.
