Australia moves to improve East Timor aviation security
Wednesday, 07 May 2008
The governments of Australia and East Timor have joined forces to improve aviation security in the region.
The Australian Government will spend A$100,000 on the East Timor Aviation Security Project to provide training for more than 250 East Timorese airport and aviation security officials.
The East Timor Aviation Security Project is expected to improve aviation security skills in areas such as passenger and baggage screening and help East Timor strengthen its aviation security laws and regulations.
Australian transport security experts will work on the ground with their East Timorese counterparts at Dili Airport and within the East Timor Department of Civil Aviation.
