Government of Belize to Attend CANSO 2023 Airspace World Event


The Government of Belize, through the Ministry of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation (MBECA), will be participating in Airspace World, a new global event organized by the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO). Hon. Andre Perez, Minister of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation, and Kennedy Carrillo, Chief Executive Officer in the ministry, are leading Belize’s delegation to the event, which is being hosted in Geneva, Switzerland, from March 8 to 10, 2023.
Airspace World will bring together various aviation stakeholders to discuss the future of the world’s skyspace. It offers both private and public entities the chance to develop a plan for the future airspace, highlighting the most up-to-date technology and services needed to achieve it. The event will bring together companies from air traffic management, space, and unmanned traffic management sectors to collaborate in shaping the future of our skies. Additionally, it will provide an opportunity for stakeholders from Belize to engage with leaders and experts in the field, learn about the latest technology, and network with peers from around the world.
Minister Perez and CEO Carrillo will also be travelling to Madrid, Spain, to sign an agreement with Indra, a leading firm in digital transformation consultancy and information technologies in Spain and Latin America. This agreement will provide Belize with an inaugural primary radar, as well as enhancements to current air navigation services. As part of a COCESNA regional delegation, board members from every Central American nation will be in attendance.
