Zhuhai Party Chief Lyu Yuyin noted that the city has been attaching great importance to the development of the aerospace industry and Airshow China, which has been held for 13 consecutive sessions and has become one of the five most influential international airshows around the world. A relatively complete aerospace industrial chain, featuring general aircraft manufacturing and service, has gradually taken shape in Zhuhai Aviation Industrial Park.
Lyu added that Zhuhai will continue to create an outstanding business environment and provide excellent services for enterprises.
CASC has maintained a good cooperative relationship with Zhuhai for years, said Deng Hongbing, vice general manager of the group. Deng noted that he was looking forward to a series of symbolic cooperation outcomes between the two parties and to cultivating a batch of advantageous industries in Zhuhai.
CASC subsidiaries, including Xi'an Institute of Microelectronics Technology and Beijing Aerospace Long March Scientific & Technical Information Institute, also signed cooperation contracts with the Zhuhai National Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone's administrative committee and Zhuhai Airshow Co.
In addition, a Zhuhai space center will be built by the city through its cooperation with Airshow China's exhibitors to showcase popular exhibits, such as the display modules of space stations and Long March rockets. Areas displaying badges and photographs of previous editions of Airshow China will also be available to bring an immersive experience reflecting the charm of China's aerospace science and technology to visitors.
