Advancement in technological capability gives China bigger say in cooperation

The Chinese aviation industry has benefited from cooperation with foreign institutes and is willing to deepen international exchanges in research, according to a senior researcher of a State-owned aviation company.

"We have been benefiting from our fruitful cooperation with aviation research institutes in the European Union and Russia, and our cooperative projects focus on civil aviation technologies," said Hua Jun, deputy head of the Chinese Aeronautical Establishment.

Hua made the remarks at the 15th Aviation Expo/China, which opened in Beijing on Wednesday and lasts four days.

"Starting 30 years ago from simple training programs for our researchers, cooperation between us and foreign institutes has evolved to a high level, allowing us to conduct joint research and development projects," he said.

He added that China's rapid development and remarkable advancement in technological capability gives the country a bigger say in such cooperation.

Even in some cutting-edge aeronautical fields such as space shuttle development, Western countries are becoming more flexible and willing to work with China.

"The United States, Europe and Japan are all exploring space shuttle technologies, and some of them have contacted us to inquire whether we can collaborate with them or let them use our facilities to perform tests," Hua said.
