China-Africa regional aviation cooperation plan


  In May 2014, Premier Li Keqiang initiated the "China-Africa regional aviation cooperation plan" on the Assembly of African Union, turning the "Chinese aircraft going globally" into the national strategic promoting project. AVIC dedicated itself in implementing this Plan as the major implementing enterprise, and appointed AVIC INTL to specifically implement this Plan, the latter of whom then carried out the "2123" civil aircraft marketing and customer service work plan in African countries, meaning the construction of 2 marketing centers, 1 training center, 2 maintenance centers, and 3 spare part centers. In this way, the entire civil aviation industry can go globally by virtue of civil aircraft export. By now, AIFA has been established in South Africa while a Technical Support Center has been established in Tanzania, and construction of the other centers is well underway.
