On 21st of September, the EU-ASSP II-Z Closing event was held in Lusaka. The EU - Aviation Sector Support Programme II to Zambia is a support project funded by the European Union and implemented by EASA. At NTU we are very satisfied to have continuously supported EASA in the implementation of this successful project since its start in 2017 both by providing experts and assisting in the logistics and events.

The Project has enhanced the cooperation between the EU and Zambia, it has supported the development of a reliable and effective aviation sector capable of contributing to economic growth in the country and has paved the way to a better compliance with international aviation standards, especially in terms of both aviation safety and security oversight. Higher safety standards, a more harmonized and competitive aviation sector, enhanced connectivity and cooperation in air transport are among the main project achievements.
