The Deputy Head of Mission Helen Tunnah presented the award to the winners of the 17th National Competition for Innovation in Public Sector Administration for the project SIAVANAC – Flight Authorization and Control System of ANAC

The ceremony took place at the Planning, Budget and Management Ministry auditorium, in Brasilia, on 26 March 2013. Planning Minister Miriam Belchior, Education Minister Aloizio Mercadante, Deputy Secretary-General of the Presidency Diogo Sant´ana and Brazil´s Public Administration School (ENAP) President Paulo Carvalho attended the ceremony, as well as Ambassadors and other Brazilian senior officials.

The Embassy offered a one-week technical visit to New Zealand. Ambassador Jeffrey McAlister said that `it is our great honour to support an initiative that seeks the improvement of the Brazilian air navigability system. I am confident that ANAC’s visit to New Zealand will generate a strong exchange of experiences.´

The competition is organised annually by ENAP. New Zealand is co-sponsoring the initiative for the first time. SIAVANAC is a system created by ANAC, in partnership with the Revenue Agency, the Federal Police and the Air Force Command, aimed at facilitating the process for non-commercial foreign aircraft to obtain flight authorisations in Brazil, as well as  monitoring the stay of such aircraft in  Brazilian territory.  In New Zealand, the ANAC representative will meet with local counterparts, such as officials at the Ministry of Transport and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
