What is the RAMM2?
The RAMM2 was a ministerial dialogue for Pacific Island States to consider the wide-ranging aviation needs of the region to ensure there is a safe, sustainable and improved aviation system for the benefit of the people of the Pacific.
RAMM2 was an important opportunity for further dialogue where Pacific Island States expressed concerns over the challenges the aviation sector faces, especially where it impacts connectivity. The meeting further saw that commitment and attention was expressed towards achieving the aviation priorities and advance collective efforts to achieve transformative change.
The RAMM2 built on the success of the RAMM1 which brought greater recognition of the strategic benefits of increased air connectivity, recognising the Port Moresby Declaration on Aviation Safety and Security and the Framework for Aviation in the Pacific, as well as the considerable challenges facing aviation following the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The RAMM2 focused on strengthening aviation safety and security compliance through enhancing current institutional arrangements and establishing a long-term regional aviation strategy.
