A Sichuan-COMAC strategic cooperation promotion meeting was held on October 8th, 2019 at COMAC Civil Aircraft Demonstration Industrial Park in Chengdu to review and summarize the progress of cooperation in the early stage and discuss the issues of promoting and deepening cooperation. Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC) signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Haite Group, and COMAC Shanghai Aviation Industrial (Group) Co., Ltd. signed an investment cooperation agreement with Chengdu Management Committee of Sichuan Tianfu New Area at the meeting.

Mr. Wang Fengchao, Vice Governor of Sichuan Province, Mr. He Dongfeng, Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of COMAC, and Mr. Zhao Yuerang, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee and President of COMAC, made speeches at the meeting. Mr. Zhao Jiufang, Supervisory Attache of the State Committee of Supervisory of the People's Republic of China in COMAC, Member of Standing Committee of the Party Committee of COMAC, and Secretary of Commission for Discipline Inspection of COMAC, and Mr. Liu Jun, Secretary of the Party Committee of CAAC Southwest Regional Administration, attended the meeting. Mr. Cheng Fubo, Member of Standing Committee of the Party Committee and Vice President of COMAC, presided over the meeting.

Mr. Wang Fengchao expressed that in recent years, Sichuan province and COMAC had developed close cooperation and achieved positive results in civil aircraft research and development, Tianfu International Airport construction, industrial park construction and Chengdu aviation development support, which had strengthened the confidence and determination of each side in deepening cooperation. Sichuan province had regarded the development of aviation and gas turbine industry as a pillar of its "5+1" modern industrial system, laying a foundation for deepening and implementing cooperation. He hoped that Sichuan and COMAC would continue to deepen strategic cooperation and draw a new blueprint for open cooperation.

Mr. He Dongfeng expressed gratitude to the CPC Sichuan Provincial Committee and Sichuan provincial government and relevant units for their long-term concern and support in the trunk liner career. Mr. He Dongfeng also expressed that COMAC would be guided by the spirits of major instructions of General Secretary Xi Jinping on trunk liner career, proceed with confidence, deepen cooperation, further deepening the strategic layout in Sichuan, increase investment in R&D, manufacturing, operation support and software development, continuously build and strengthen the industrial chain of trunk liner, accelerate the research of key core technologies, and make unremitting efforts for new success in trunk liner career in a new era.

Mr. Zhao Yuerang expressed that since its establishment 11 years ago, COMAC had developed extensive cooperation with Sichuan province, got generous support, and obtained good results. COMAC would bear in mind President Xi Jinping's exhortations, carry the trunk liner career on the shoulders, take a down-to-earth attitude to support the commercial operation of ARJ21 aircraft based on the industrial advantages and development foundation of Sichuan province, accelerate the expansion of cooperation with Sichuan province in both breadth and depth, and work hand in hand to develop the trunk liner career of China.

With the relocation of Chengdu Airlines which is the first consumer of the China-made aircraft ARJ21, the first Civil Aircraft Demonstration Industrial Park invested by COMAC was officially opened and operated in Chengdu Shuangliu Pilot Free Trade Zone. This is an important sign of accelerating large-scale production and operation of ARJ21 aircraft independently developed by China, and also indicates that the industrialization of domestic commercial aircraft in Sichuan is entering a new phase.

COMAC Civil Aircraft Demonstration Industrial Park is located to the southwest of the second runway of Shuangliu Airport, with a planned land area of about 570 mu and a total construction area of about 340,000 square meters. The industrial park will take the mission of fully supporting the demonstration operation of ARJ21 aircraft, and focus on building five major functions, i.e. aviation operation, aviation maintenance, aviation training, industry cultivation and comprehensive service. The first phase of the project includes the construction of commercial aircraft production and operation command center, hangar, aviation materials warehouse, administrative office building and personnel service center. According to the plan, the industrial park will be capable of supporting the operation and guarantee of 50 China-made commercial aircraft by 2021.

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, good news for ARJ21 aircraft keep coming. Production and delivery are accelerated, with four aircraft delivered in September, the highest ever. The operation and batch production ARJ21 aircraft were included in the Memorabilia of the People's Republic of China (October 1949 - September 2019) together with the maiden flight of the C919 aircraft on September 27th, 2019. After three years of demonstration operation, Chengdu Airlines has received 15 ARJ21 aircraft which have carried more than 500,000 passengers and served more than 20 cities. An airline network taking Chengdu as the main operating base, and Changsha and Harbin as the overnight base and covering the major cities throughout the country has been formed. Especially in northeast China, a trunk and regional airline network radiating the region has been formed, and large-scale commercial operation has been started. At present, Chengdu Airlines is preparing to open a round trip of Heilongjiang-Vladivostok, which will be the first international route of ARJ21 aircraft.

Officers of relevant departments and cooperation units of Sichuan and Chengdu, and leaders of relevant departments and subsidiary units of COMAC headquarters participated in the meeting.
