Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC) and Aluminum Corporation of China (CHINALCO) jointed held an exchange activity on new material technology of aviation aluminum alloy in Harbin, Heilongjiang on November 20th, 2017, and signed a Cooperation Agreement on Development and Application of Civil Aviation Aluminum. Mr. Zhang Qingwei, Secretary of the CPC Heilongjiang Provincial Committee and Director of the Standing Committee of the Provincial People's Congress, Mr. Zhang Kejian, Deputy Director of State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (SASTIND), Mr. Li Wei, Director General of Department of Raw Material Industry of Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), Mr. He Dongfeng, Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of COMAC, Mr. Ge Honglin, Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of CHINALCO, attended the activity.

According to the agreement, COMAC and CHINALCO would closely center on the demand of large passenger aircraft and other key national projects and models for aluminum, enhance top-level design and planning, make overall plans for the development and application process, actively interface with the new material strategy of the country, jointly promote the development and application of domestic aluminum alloy, and make contributions to the development of China's civil aircraft industry and the independent guarantee of materials.

Mr. Zhang Qingwei expressed at the signing ceremony that flying our aircraft into the blue sky had been the eager wish of the whole country, the CPC Central Committee and the State Council had made important deployments on this, and COMAC and CHINALCO had shouldered an important mission. Heilongjiang was an important region for the development of the national military industry, and there were both a good foundation and a major opportunity for developing the industries such as aerospace and new materials. From the beginning of this year, they had continuously and thoroughly implemented the spirits of the important speech of General Secretary Xi Jinping on Heilongjiang, comprehensively studied the spirits of the 19th CPC National Congress and done solid work on the "three articles" to accelerate the all-round development of Heilongjiang.
