1. Acting Director of Civil Aviation Justin Mkandawire told
econoff on July 8 that the GOM will likely support the USG's
bid for re-election as a Category 1 country to the Council of
the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), as it
has done in the past. Mkandawire said the GOM has not yet
selected its delegation for the ICAO conference, but he
anticipates newly appointed Minister of Transport and Public
Works Henry Mussa will represent the GOM. Mkandawire said
that once the head of delegation has been selected, he will
officially recommend that the GOM support the USG's
re-election.
