China’s Aviation Sector Offers Significant Commercial Opportunities For U.S. Companies 

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) is pleased to host the 8th U.S.-China Aviation Symposium July 17-20, 2018, at the Grand Hyatt Beijing in Beijing, China. The Symposium is an excellent opportunity for U.S. industry and government officials to engage China’s senior aviation leaders in substantive discussions on aviation policies, commercial opportunities for U.S. businesses, and U.S. technologies and best practices that can support China’s growing aviation sector.

China is already the world’s second-largest aviation market and is expected to reach 1.3 billion passengers by 2035, overtaking the size of the U.S. market. To support this dynamic growth, the Chinese government is expected to invest $11.7 billion in the development of numerous civil aviation projects, including new airports in Beijing, Chengdu, Qingdao, Xiamen and Dalian. Given these predictions of sustained and substantial infrastructure growth, China’s aviation sector represents a major commercial opportunity for U.S. industry.

The Symposium will cover a number of pressing topics such as aviation strategic sustainability, general aviation, China’s aviation partnership opportunities, new aviation technologies to advance aviation safety, and regulating aircraft systems and drones — all issues that are vital to China’s expanding aviation market. The timing of the Symposium is pivotal, as the Chinese Government will be halfway through its 13th Five-Year Plan, and aviation issues discussed at the Symposium are expected to influence how decision-makers continue to implement the aviation priorities outlined in this Plan. CAAC has identified five main policy goals in the current Five-Year Plan: sustain aviation safety, build a national integrated airport system, improve aviation service capabilities, strengthen air traffic management service and support, and speed up development through reform and innovation. 

USTDA is pleased to partner with the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and the U.S.-China Aviation Cooperation Program (ACP) to sponsor this important event in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Transportation/U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, U.S. Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Transportation Security Administration, and the U.S. Embassy.

The American Association of Airport Executives is organizing this event on behalf of USTDA. For more information on the program or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Mr. Spencer Dickerson, American Association of Airport Executives, phone 703.578.2511, or email sdickerson@aaae.org.
