US$2.15m grant for Pacific aviation safety

The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors on September approved a US$2.15 million grant to the Pacific Aviation Safety Office (PASO) to help ensure safety and security oversight in the aviation sector in Pacific Island Countries.

In a statement the World Bank said that many Pacific Islands countries face challenges related to their remote, geographically dispersed locations and small populations. Safe and reliable air services are needed to connect people in the Pacific Island countries to each other and to larger markets, and to facilitate important industries such as tourism.
