USTDA to provide US$1.1-M to China-US aviation program


Minister Li Jiaxiang of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) met with Director Larry Walther of the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) on June 25 to discuss the gains made since the inauguration of the US-China Aviation Cooperation program (ACP) in 2004.
Li and Walther signed the USTDA grant agreement for the fourth phase of the cooperation project under the ACP. USTDA will provide US$1.1 million for three projects: executive management development training, development of a general aviation system, and training of air traffic control supervisors. Wright Brothers ACP was established in 2004 to promote cooperation between China and the US in aviation, and help China’s civil aviation improve on an operational level. The ACP was sponsored by the Boeing Co. and gained wide support from the Federation Aviation Administration, USTDA, the US Embassy in China, and 32 American enterprises. Since 2004, the USTDA has provided a total of US$3.89 million grant for the three phases of the ACP. Delegates from the FAA, the US Embassy in China, 23 US member companies of ACP, and leaders from the CAAC witnessed the signing ceremony.
