China’s aviation industry grows at an annual rate of 7.9%, and will become the world’s largest market by 2034 with an estimated 1.2 billion passengers. The 13th Five-Year Plan has incorporated the target for the introduction of 50 new civil aviation airports and 2,000 general aviation airports.

However, flight operations remain a challenge, and require improved interactions with new policies, technologies and eased air-space restrictions. New targets for China’s aviation industry for the next 20 years are to introduce 6,810 new aircrafts, to train 90,000 new pilots and 76,000 new technicians.

Opportunities for EU SMEs are expanding; however, strategical planning and proactive actions need to be implemented to fully take advantage of the growth of China’s aviation industry, and ultimately to create a perfect marriage of European ingenuity and advanced technology with China’s fast growing aviation industry.

This webinar will explain how to create a mutually beneficial relation with the Chinese aviation industry, specifically in civil and general aviation programs developed by Chinese and Sino-Foreign players. Italy’s best practices will be presented to understand the results’ driven approach and the importance of the interaction between governments/institutions and industries.

Watch this webinar to:

  • Gain an insight of China’s aviation industry with the latest governmental policies;
  • Gain knowledge on the main Chinese aviation programs and players;
  • Understand the existing institution-industry programs available for EU SMEs.
