Bi-Lateral Agreement Will Help Develop Aviation Sector In The South American Country
The U.S. Department of State, the FAA, and the TSA, together with Brazil’s Ministry of External Relations, have announced the launch of the U.S.- Brazil Bilateral Aviation Partnership.
A Memorandum of Understanding establishing the partnership was signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Trade Development Administration (USTDA) Director Leocadia I. Zak, TSA Administrator John Pistole, and FAA Acting Administrator Michael Huerta on behalf of the United States; and by Minister of External Relations Antonio Patriota on behalf of Brazil. Initially, six companies that have yet to be selected will participate in the partnership, alongside the supporting U.S. and Brazilian Government agencies. “We are excited to work together to support the growth of Brazil's dynamic aviation sector and deepen our commercial engagement with Brazil,” said Leocadia Zak.
In June 2012, as the first official activities under the partnership, USTDA will host a delegation of Brazilian aviation officials on a reverse trade mission to the United States to familiarize them with U.S. technologies, best practices, and regulatory approaches for airports modernization. In October 2012, USTDA will host a Latin American Aviation Summit in Miami, Fla. to introduce hundreds of U.S. aviation company representatives to aviation officials from countries across Latin America, including Brazil.
