716.     Regional conventions and agreements.

A number of conventions and agreements have been signed to set up regional organisations. Some of these conventions were made under the auspices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation ('ICAO')1, such as those establishing the various regional Civil Aviation Conferences2; others are the result of concerted efforts to solve specific problems at a local level, such as those relating to commercial rights3, tariffs4, airworthiness5, air traffic control6, capacity7, or those relating to a specific region8.
