Intl aviation expo yields fruitful results in Xi'an

Updated: 2017-08-30 13:10:53 EmailPrint

The 2017 China International General Aviation Convention (CIGAC) drew to a close in Xi'an, capital of Shaanxi province, on Aug 27. The convention proved to be a great success with 35 projects valued at roughly 34.6 billion yuan ($5.2 billion) signed.

Sponsored by the Shaanxi provincial government, Civil Aviation Administration of China, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade and the Aviation Industry Corporation of China, the biennial event marks the largest expo of general aviation brands in the country.

Some 3,047 exhibits were displayed during the four-day event, including aircraft, unmanned planes, helicopters and aero-engines. Forums discussing hot topics and the latest trends in general aviation were also organized during the event.

More than 1,300 aviation manufacturers, experts and officials from 20 countries and regions, including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and Hungary, attended the convention

The first National Innovative and Entrepreneurial Competition in General Aviation was also held at this year's CIGAC. The competition attracted 343 projects from across the globe.

General aviation has played an increasing important role in China's economy. The scale of general aviation in the country is expected to exceed one trillion yuan by 2020, according to a report released by the State Council last year.
