Tamburelli had already been elected as vice president of the Assembly, an appointment that was made at the proposal of the United Arab Emirates, who read her curriculum in front of the entire assembly, which was approved unanimously.
Some 2,000 ministers and senior government officials representing 193 States, as well as regional and global organizations from the air transport industry, participate in this Assembly, which takes place every three years.
ICAO is an agency of the United Nations Organization created in 1944 by the Convention on International Civil Aviation to study the problems of international civil aviation and promote unique regulations and standards in world aeronautics.
