Jointly organized by CUHK LAW CCTL and the Centre for Commercial Law Studies in Queen Mary University of London, the EU-Asia Aviation Law Forum aims to engage in debates on aviation law issues in the EU and Asia. The 1st EU-Asia Aviation Law Forum will examine the ASEAN-EU Comprehensive Air Transport Agreement (AE CATA). EU and ASEAN concluded the negotiations on the AE CATA in June 2021, and the AE CATA is currently in the final stage for signature. The AE CATA is the world’s first bloc-to-bloc air transport agreement. It will not only bolster connectivity and economic development between the regions, but will also have considerable implications in the rest of the world. In this inaugural forum, three renowned aviation law experts, namely Prof. Jae Woon Lee, Dr. Antigoni Lykotrafiti and Mr. Máté Gergely, will introduce the background of the AE CATA and offer in-depth insight into the various issues of the AE CATA.
