  5. U.S. Embassy in Beijing: Messages • By 2014, additional 800 million people will travel by air (ATA), China alone will account for over ¼ of this increase (181M by China domestic flights, 33M by Chinese flying internationally).  • The top 3 airports (Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou) handle 1/3 of China’s total passenger traffic • Chinese government plan: building 55 new airports in the next 5 years, investing total of $230 B • The U.S. Aerospace trade surplus with China was between $4-5 B in 2009 alone, note the overall U.S. trade deficit with China was $273 B in 2010. • Overall, complex relationships of cooperation and competition Tremendous Growth Opportunities in China’s Aerospace Industry

  6. AVIC Headquarters Meeting (1)

  7. AVIC Headquarters Meeting (2) • AVIC Headquarters of 200+ member companies (subsidiaries), established in 2008 • Over 400,000 employees in 24 provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities • 10 EVPs leadership team, led by President Zuoming Lin • Operating Model: “member companies” more like Airbus’s relationship with EADS than Boeing Commercial Airplanes’ enmeshed connection with Boeing. • Subsidiaries may be a profit center but AVIC’s head office, controlling group finances, will retain final say over such major decisions as whether to launch a new aircraft. • CSAA is a part of AVIC • EADS holds 5% of equity stock in one of AVIC’s listed member companies (AviChina, AVIC Industry & Technology Company Limited) • Met with: • Dr. Xinguo Zhang, EVP Information, Scientific Research, Avionics, Electromechanics (CSAA) • Dr. Jun Hua, VP, Chinese Aeronautical Establishment (CSAA) • Jinzhong Wei, VP, Science & Technology and IT • Zhou Jun, VP International Business Development • Song Wu, Secretary General, CSAA (also ICAS rep from China)

  8. Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) • Founded in 1951 as the Bureau of Aviation Industry, later became the China Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC), a consortium of aircraft manufacturers. • In 1999 this consortium was split into AVIC I and AVIC II • In 2008 AVIC I and II merged back to AVIC because the previous separation resulted in split resources and led to redundant projects. • Focus: develop indigenous military technologies and to compete in the civilian airline industry • Product base: Military aircraft, Commercial aircraft, Information Technology, Non-Aviation Products (e.g. logistics, assets mgt, finance services, automobiles, etc.) • Since 2008, AVIC maintains double digit growth, with total revenue reaching $31B in 2010 • July 7, 2011, AVIC ranked 310 among the published Fortune TOP, rising from 330 last year, on the F500 list third consecutive year Rapidly Growing Aerospace Corporation Already on F500 List

  9. CSAA Signing Ceremony and Reception • AIAA – CSAA MOU Official Signing Ceremony as approved by the AIAA Board in January 2011 • CSAA and AVIC represented and all would like further collaboration and dialog • Specific areas of interest for collaboration discussed where focused on promotion of journals and young professional activities

  18. Closing Thoughts • China’s aviation market is huge • Government (including AVIC HQ) has been making strategic decisions and investing accordingly • Though, the aim from industry is not only for the domestic market, but “global” • China’s aerospace (aeronautics) industry has made great strides and begun towin the global recognition and partnerships in research and development (R&D) as well as manufacturing. • In the midst of a historic transformation • Still has a long way to go, with lots of opportunities in leapfrogging technologies • Organizational structures and relationships • “Institutes” can be profit centers with roles ranging from R&D to manufacturing products • National “Key Labs” are great leverage for institutes and partners • Some organizational structure still seemed to reflect a Soviet-era stovepipe, e.g., “party leaders” still in critical positions (e.g., corporation head HR) • The civil and military activities seemed intertwined. People and resources are moved freely and interchangeably from one to the other. • Potential collaboration opportunities (just a sample) • Composites, Avionics (Hardware and Software) • General Aviation, “Next Gen” Air Traffic Management • Universities (training)

  19. AIAA Benefits • Increased exposure for AIAA and the corporate member program • Increased exposure and engagement internationally • Model set for potential future visits to other countries with developing interests in aerospace – India, Brazil, etc. • Real membership potential exists in China, need strategy • Opportunities for Chinese members to participate in various, e.g., Standards Committee(s) and Technical Committees, and Publications committees • Opportunities of joint international activities, e.g., joint sponsored conferences, student design-fly competitions, university lectures (speakers exchange) • Networking opportunities for corporate members represented vs. Chinese introductions
