As globalization continues, cooperation among international agencies is imperative. While the exact arrangement and alignment of agencies in 2030 cannot be known, the need for cooperation between them is readily apparent. As shown in Government Build 1, many agencies are involved in the aviation industry while the Global wiki highlights many issues involved with globalization. As the industry continues to evolve, becomes more complex and traffic density increases, a single entity to coordinate international cooperation must be either developed or identified.

A large component of international agency cooperation is currently found with the United Nations Specialized Agency, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The ICAO vision and mission is: “The ICAO or International Civil Aviation Organization is the global forum for civil aviation. ICAO works to achieve its vision of safe, secure and sustainable development of civil aviation through the cooperation of its Member States” (ICAO, 2012). Currently ICAO consists of 191 member states (ICAO, 2012). It was created in to “promote the safe and orderly development of international civil aviation throughout the world. It sets standards and regulations necessary for aviation safety, security, efficiency and regularity, as well as for aviation environmental protection” (ICAO, 2012).

Without international cooperation, aviation growth will be hindered. By increasing membership with ICAO and continuing the dialogue between member states, ICAO can be the vital medium for cooperation among international agencies.
