中国商务航空/航天业加强对2007亚洲航空展的支持
China’s commercial aerospace industry boosts
support for Asian Aerospace 2007

(2007年3月2日)已获得中国民航管理总局支持的亚洲航空展,最近得到更多中国国有及私营企业的重要支持。该航展活动被视为全球商业航空市场上买方和卖方交易的理想平台。

中国国防科学技术工业委员会(COSTIND)将通过其负责协调展会活动的中国国防科学技术工业委员会媒体中心与励展博览集团签署合作协议,共同推广这一有望成为全球最大的民用航空工业展会活动。该展会将于今年9月3-6日在香港的亚洲国际博览馆举行。

位于西安及天津市的两个航空/航天业重点基地之企业均已确认参展,准备籍该展会展示其日益精良的制造、研制和开发技术。

西安航空基地在这个以兵马俑闻名于世的古城的成立,充分显示了中国正致力于在主要大城市以外发展航空/航天业的决心。天津航空基地是国家民航局与天津市政府的一项合作,该合作包括空客公司将在天津开设A320飞机的总装厂。

励展博览的亚太航空及国防科技副总裁马锦雯女士表示:“中国国防科学技术工业委员会的支持除了可进一步提升亚洲航空展的品牌知名度外,还可以吸引更多参展商及参观商,使亚洲航空展成为国际航空业界活动日程表内的重要事项。”

“天津与西安航空航天企业的参展与亚洲航空展为放眼于全球市场的中国企业以及探讨在中国和大亚太区业务机会的公司提供完美平台的雄心不谋而合。”

中国国防科学技术工业委员会(COSTIND)新闻宣传中心主任李金铎先生表示:“我们很希望能协助提高公众对亚洲航空展的认知度,以及增加本地、亚太区和国际客商出席参加亚洲航空展这一作为中国企业寻求海外发展及外国企业探讨在中国及亚太区市场发展的良好平台。”

“近期中国政府推进航空/航天产业的总体方向包括发展新支线飞机、直升机和先进发动机、机载设备,扩大转包生产,推进产业化;发展通信、导航、遥感等卫星及其应用,形成空间、地面与终端产品制造、运营服务的航天产业链。我们相信,参加亚洲航空展将衍生更多与国际合作伙伴谋求共同的长远利益的合作机会。”

较早前,亚洲航空展获得中国航空工业第一集团公司(AVIC I)签约参加亚洲航空展。航空第一集团属下包括47个大型及中型生产设施、31家研究及发展机构、22家附属的专业公司和机构,雇员总数近25万。而专门生产机翼部分的中国航空工业第二集团公司(AVIC II)亦在最近签约参展。

目前已签约参展的世界主要飞机制造商包括空中客车的母公司EADS、波音公司、庞巴廸、Action Aviation、Aviall、澳洲航天、Jet Aviation、汉莎科技、联合科技公司及其它多家国际企业。

包括澳大利亚、奥地利、加拿大、法国、德国、意大利、爱尔兰、荷兰、罗马尼亚、瑞士、英国及美国等国家工业团体亦将联袂参展。

还有许多香港和中国的国有及民营组织均给予亚洲国际航空展览会暨论坛(Asian Aerospace)大力支持,包括香港投资推广署、香港民航处、中国民航总局(CAAC)、国防科学技术工业委员会(COSTIND)、香港机场管理局、香港旅游发展局以及亚洲航空航天论坛。

高层论坛是此次盛会的重要组成部分,届时航空领域各大公司的代表将汇聚一堂,共同商讨亚太地区高速增长的市场所带来的无限商机。

该论坛将由为航空业内人士或热爱航空的人士提供全球信息、久负盛名的世界航空媒体品牌Flight共同主办。Flight旗下包括著名的《Flight International》、《Airline Business》等杂志,以及航空运输情报服务和ACAS机队数据库。

亚太航空公司培训研讨会(APATS)亦将与2007亚洲国际航空展览会暨论坛同期举行,讲论在培训人员短缺而机队数目扩充的情况下,创新及具成本效益的培训将会成为亚太区航空公司发展的基础。

励展博览集团最近并购亚太区首屈一指的亚洲航空物流技术展览会(Air Freight Asia)更充分显示该集团要将一系列互相配合的活动凝聚在一起,提供全球最大的民用航空工业展会的决心。

此外,该集团新近并购的世界顶级飞机内部设计展——亚洲飞机室内设计及设备展(Aircraft Interiors Expo Asia)也将会安排在2007年亚洲国际航空展览会暨论坛同期举行。

另一个由励展博览集团举办的相关活动 – 亚洲复合材料展览暨亚洲增强塑料论坛(Composites and RP Asia)将会在现场展示复合材料的原料、生产及制造科技。

亚洲航空展的访客可参观在亚洲国际博览馆展场内林林总总的商业航空产品及服务,以及位于香港国际机场的民用飞机静态展区。

China’s commercial aerospace industry boosts support for Asian Aerospace 2007

(02 March, 2007) Asian Aerospace International Expo and Congress, which already enjoys endorsement by the General Administration of Civil Aviation of China (CAAC), has received significant new backing from public and private sector enterprises in China, which see the event as the perfect platform to boost two way trading opportunities in the global commercial aerospace market.

The Commission of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence, P.R.C. (COSTIND) will support Reed Exhibitions, through an agreement with COSTIND Media Centre (the division within COSTIND responsible for exhibition coordination), to promote jointly what is shaping up to be the single largest dedicated civil aerospace industry event in the world, when it is held at its new venue in AsiaWorld-Expo, Hong Kong from September 3-6, 2007.

Companies located in the two aerospace industry bases in the cities of Xian, and Tianjin have also confirmed their participation at Asian Aerospace to showcase their growing expertise in manufacturing and research & development (R&D).

The setting up of the Xian Aviation Industrial in the ancient city, renowned for its terracotta warriors, is a firm indication of China’s commitment to boosting the aerospace industry infrastructure beyond just the major cities. The Tianjin Aerospace Industry Base in the port city of Tianjin is a collaboration between the National Civil Aviation Board and the local government in Tianjin, where Airbus plans to set up an A320 final assembly plant.

Annie Ma, Vice President of Reed Exhibitions Aerospace & Defence Group Asia, said: “The support of COSTIND will go beyond just boosting the Asian Aerospace brand, but also play a vital role in helping to attract the key exhibitors and visitors which will make the event a pre-eminent fixture on the international aerospace industry calendar.

“The participation of the aerospace industrial enterprises in Tianjin and Xi An is in line with Asian Aerospace’s ambition to provide the perfect platform for companies in China which have an eye on global markets, and international companies which are keen to explore business opportunities in China and the greater Asia Pacific region.”

Mr Li Jinduo, Director of COSTIND Media Centre, commented: “We look forward to help increase the awareness and participation of local, regional and international visitors to Asian Aerospace, which is a platform for companies in China looking overseas and overseas companies looking to the market in China and the Asia Pacific region.

“The Chinese government currently aims at pushing forth the general development in regional aircraft, helicopter and advanced aero-engines and aircraft equipment. There are also targets for increasing OEM production and boosting the industry production. In addition, the development of satellite related applications like communication, navigation, remote sensor, etc. are also being encouraged. The ultimate goal is to have an integrated aerospace industrial chain encompassing aerial, ground and terminal commodities’ production and operation services. We believe that our participation at Asian Aerospace will lead to increased opportunities for collaboration with international partners for mutual long term benefits.”

Recently China Aviation Industry Corporation I (AVIC 1) has signed up to participate at the show. AVIC 1 encompasses 47 large and medium-sized manufacturing facilities, 31 research and development institutes, 22 affiliated specialised companies and institutions, with a total employment of almost quarter of a million staff. AVIC II, which specialises in the feeder and rotary wing aircraft sector, has also signed up to participate at Asian Aerospace.

Included among the international line-up of leading industry companies which has signed up for Asian Aerospace so far are Airbus parent company EADS, Boeing, Bombardier, Action Aviation, Aviall, Aviation Australia, Jet Aviation, Lufthansa Technik, and United Technologies Corporation, among others.

National industry and group pavilions which will be represented include Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Romania, Switzerland, the United States, and the UK.

Major support for Asian Aerospace has also been pledged by an array of public and private sector organisations in Hong Kong and China, including Invest Hong Kong, Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department, The General Administration of Civil Aviation of China (CAAC), Commission of Science Technology and Industry for National Defense (COSTIND), Airport Authority Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Tourism Board, and the Aerospace Forum Asia (AFA).

A high-level Congress will form a key component of the event, bringing together major players from across aerospace and aviation to discuss the exciting opportunities the region’s fast-growing market will deliver.

The congress will be organised in partnership with Flight, the world’s longest established brand in aviation media, which provides global intelligence and resources to everyone involved in or with a passion for aviation. Flight’s leading portfolio includes magazines Flight International and Airline Business, as well as the Air Transport Intelligence service and ACAS fleet database.

The Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium (APATS), which will also be held in conjunction with Asian Aerospace International Expo and Congress 2007, will zero in on innovative and cost effective training as the foundation of airline growth in the Asia Pacific region, given the shortage of trained personnel and the training need created by the tremendous growth of these airline fleets.

The recent acquisition and integration of the Asia Pacific region’s premier air freight exhibition and conference, Air Freight Asia into Asian Aerospace is in line with Reed Exhibitions plans to provide a cluster of complementary events that will combine to offer the largest dedicated civil aviation industry showcase in the world.

The world’s premier aircraft interiors show, Aircraft Interiors Expo Asia, which has also been acquired lately by Reed Exhibitions, will be held alongside Asian Aerospace in 2007. Another associated event, Composites Asia will showcase raw materials, production and manufacturing technology for composites materials.

Altogether, visitors to Asian Aerospace can expect to see a comprehensive range of commercial aviation products and services at AsiaWorld-Expo, excluding a static display area for commercial aircraft, which will be located within the Hong Kong International Airport.
