Civil Aviation Symposium 2023

Achieving Aviation Sustainability: Challenges and Necessary Cooperation

The pandemic has drastically changed the circumstances of air transportation, and much uncertainty remains. Given this context, sustainable aviation has taken the helm as the future of air industries and a chance for growth. For this event, JITTI USA has invited experts in the fields of aviation, government, finance, and manufacturing to reconfirm the importance of U.S.-Japan air transport in terms of both strengthening the bilateral relationship and economic security, and to explore carbon neutral strategies and cooperative opportunities for these two nations' aviation industries.
