International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) continued during 1997 to promote the safety and efficiency of civil air transport by prescribing standards and recommending procedures for facilitating civil aviation operations. Its objectives were set forth in annexes to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, adopted in Chicago, Illinois, United States, in 1944, known as the Chicago Convention. The Convention, the international agreement that regulated the safe and orderly development of air transport, established the fundamental principles of safety, efficiency and regularity of civil aviation and created ICAO to promote and administer those principles. On 4 April, ICAO marked the fiftieth anniversary of the coming into force of the Convention.
