"I look forward to working with airport operators, airport users and civil aviation authorities to develop more efficient, light-touch, regulations, and to develop sound policies that support the sustainable development of airports. ACI plays a critical role in creating synergies with other aviation stakeholders that shape tomorrow's policies and regulations, and I am pleased to be joining the team and contributing to such momentous tasks."
