Mr. Wu Qing expressed gratitude to the people from all walks of life who have long been interested in supporting and actively participating in the development of Shanghai aviation industry. He emphasized that the development of Shanghai civil aviation industry would enter a fast track with the joint launch of the Valley and the Park, the holding of Shanghai Aviation Industrial Chain Conference, and the gradual introduction of several policies focusing on the development of civil aviation and aerospace industry in Lingang Area. Shanghai would take the agglomeration and development of the industrial chain as the core, rely on the Valley and the Park, lay out an innovation chain around the industrial chain, upgrade the industrial chain based on the innovation chain, establish the core position of Shanghai in the civil aviation industry of China, speed up the building of an aviation industrial base which integrates the functions of design development, assembly manufacturing, production support and operation service, and strive to achieve a total output value of 300 billion yuan in aviation manufacturing industry by 2035. He hoped that all sides participating in the conference would make joint efforts to contribute to the early realization of China's aviation dream.

Mr. He Dongfeng expressed that COMAC had been born in Shanghai, grown up in Shanghai, and would also contribute to Shanghai. Since its establishment 11 years ago, and with the support and help of Shanghai municipal government, the company had fully promoted aircraft development and capacity building. The joint launch of the Valley and the Park and the holding of Shanghai Aviation Industrial Chain Conference marked that the initiative between Shanghai municipal government and COMAC to deepen strategic cooperation, promote high-quality development of Shanghai aviation industry, and build a central and local integrated development platform had entered into a new development phase. In the future, COMAC would accelerate the pace of "basing on Shanghai and developing in Shanghai", take the Valley and the Park as a platform and carrier, get international first-class trunk liner innovation elements and industry elements agglomerated in Shanghai, actively guide local enterprises to merge into the trunk liner industrial chain, drive the development of regional economy and the transformation and upgrading of the industry, and promote the incremental, clustering and high-level development of Shanghai aviation industry.

At the conference, Zhuqiao Aviation Industrial Park and COMAC Innovation Valley were officially launched; Shanghai Economic and Information Commission signed an Agreement on Cultivation and Promotion of Shanghai Aviation Industrial Chain with COMAC; Pudong New Area, Lingang Area Administrative Committee and Lingang Group signed a Framework Agreement on Deepening Cooperation, Promoting the Construction of the Valley and the Park, and Promoting the Agglomeration and Development of Shanghai Aviation Industry with COMAC; and a batch of projects entering into the valley and the park and projects on industrial cultivation were successfully signed.

Over the years, Shanghai has insisted on the main line of civil aircraft development, focused on the whole industrial chain, emphasized the layout of complete aircraft, civil aircraft engines, airborne equipment and other fields, and promoted the development of general aviation UAV industry. The joint launch of the Valley and the Park and the holding of Shanghai Aviation Industrial Chain Conference have injected new impetus into the development of the "four industries" of the free trade zone, and provided strong guarantee and support for the high-quality development of Shanghai aviation industry, the construction of the brand of "Made in Shanghai", and the building of a civil aviation industrial base with global influence.

Shanghai municipal government signed a Framework Strategic Cooperation Agreement with COMAC in May 2018, which determines the cooperation scope on promoting the construction of the Valley and the Park and cultivating the development of local civil aviation industry; proposed to construct the COMAC Innovation Valley based on Shanghai Science and Technology Innovation Center in order to gather innovation talents, innovation devices, innovation institutions and other innovation resources, and build a technological innovation platform that is closely coordinated with the industry for opening and sharing; and built Zhuqiao Aviation Industrial Park around the trunk liner assembly base in order to accelerate the agglomeration of the upstream and downstream assembly supporting enterprises, form convenient and green supply chains, enhance industrial competitiveness, and build a civil aviation industrial base with global influence.

In recent years, relevant departments of Shanghai have made systematic planning and overall promotion, gave play to the leading role of the leading enterprises such as COMAC, AECC Commercial Aircraft Engine Co., Ltd. and Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), made layout in the whole industrial chain, attracted a group of aviation industrial chain enterprises, initially formed a civil aviation industry layout which integrates the headquarters, design, manufacturing, flight test and support. COMAC has adhered to the open cooperation, deepened the strategic layout of "basing on Shanghai and developing in Shanghai", laid out technology and capital intensive high value-added products and services, as well as the industrial supporting resources such as large component assembly, improved the level of international cooperation, attracted global supply chain to agglomerate in Shanghai, strengthened the core competences of design development, assembly manufacturing, customer service, etc., gathered 21 suppliers and 29 potential suppliers, and promoted the local project cooperation with 59 local enterprises and institutions.

It is reported that agreements have been signed for a total of 22 projects at the conference, and a number of potential projects are in the process of further negotiation and cooperation.
