This session, hosted by the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities, will focus on the infrastructure that is essential for the aviation sector – what it is, how it is regulated and what happens when there is an accident.
The session will bring together senior representatives from the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development and Cities, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau and Airservices Australia. Attendees will have a unique opportunity to both understand the role of these organisations as well as being able to participate in a panel discussion on how the agencies work with industry to support and protect a sector which is so vital to Australia’s economy.
