According to the airline, the symposium, themed ‘Ahead of tomorrow’, will focus on the initiatives and the technologies that will drive aviation security in the future and will bring together some of the most prominent industry leaders in global security to discuss critical security challenges of the future.
These experts, the airline said, would include the President of Emirates Airline, Sir Tim Clark; a former President of Interpol, Mr. Khoo Boon Hui; the Executive Director, Office of Transport Security, Australia, Ms Sachi Wimmer; and an author and journalist, specialising in aviation, Ms Christine Negroni.

“As a platform, the AVSEC global symposium allows high-level decision makers, airlines, government, airport operators, regulators and the cargo industry to come together to share ideas and best practices resulting in measurable improvements in global aviation security,” (PUNCH)
