The International Air Transport Association (IATA) called on governments and the air cargo industry to focus on three priorities to accommodate the expanding demand for air cargo and ensure the economic and social benefits of aviation can be maximized. The three priorities are: 1)Accelerating the speed of process modernization; 2) Implementing and enforcing global standards, and 3) Keeping borders open to trade. The call came during the opening address by Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO, at the 13th World Cargo Symposium.  (March 12, 2019, www.iata.org)
