Readout of U.S.-Southeast Asia Aviation Cooperation Program Meeting

Arlington, VA – Earlier today the U.S. government affirmed its continued support of the U.S. industry-led U.S.-Southeast Asia Aviation Cooperation Program (SEA ACP), which matches the technical innovation of U.S. member companies with the civil aviation sector development needs of Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands.

In a meeting with SEA ACP member companies, senior officials from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, U.S. Departments of Commerce and Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration and Transportation Security Administration outlined the resources that they intend to make available to advance the SEA ACP’s goals. These resources include grant-based project preparation assistance; partnership-building activities; market insights and trends; and regulatory, technical, operational, policy, and regional aviation expertise.

The SEA ACP is a public-private partnership to support commercial, technical and policy cooperation in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands’ civil aviation sectors. The five U.S. government partners and 38 U.S. industry members collaborate on programs designed to match the aviation needs of Southeast Asia and the Pacific Island countries with the expertise and technical innovation of U.S. companies.
