Praia, Aug 24 (Inforpress) – The installation of the Banjul Accord Group Accident Investigation Agency (BAGAIA) in Cabo Verde will give a “new impetus” to the implementation of measures related to safety and prevention in the member states of the Banjul Accord Group (BAG)

The statement was made Thursday in the city of Praia by José Gonçalves, Minister of Tourism and Transport and Maritime Economics, after signing the agreement to implement BAGAIA’s headquarters with the Minister of Transport and Aviation of Sierra Leone, Kabineh Kallon.

According to the Cabo Verdean Government, the signing of this agreement constitutes a “decisive” and “unavoidable” milestone in the implementation of BAGAIA’s headquarters in the city of Praia, as it will assist in the investigation of aviation incidents and accidents in the countries of the region.

José Gonçalves recalled that the BAGAIA’s headquarters installation in the City of Praia was agreed at a meeting of the Councils of Ministers responsible for civil aviation held in Montreal, Canada, on June 30, 2009.
