This year for the first time, EASA and the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) are organising the CAAC-EASA Aviation Safety Conference.
The aim of this first edition is to broaden the bilateral dialogue, by bringing together authorities and the wider European and Chinese aviation industry to discuss current issues, as well as future trends and challenges.
The conference will take place on 27 April 2017 in Shanghai.
During the conference, participants will debate the benefits of international agreements and the role that industry and regulators can play in this process. Various interactive workshops will explore how new technologies and concepts like risk-based performance will shape future developments in fields such as airworthiness, maintenance, flight operations and training.
This Conference is open to representatives of the aviation industry and authorities of the EU and China.
