China formalizes support for Next Generation Aviation Professionals

The upcoming Second ICAO Next Generation of Aviation Professionals Global Summit (NGAP/2)  will receive vital support from China, following the recent signing of a tripartite cooperative agreement by Dr. Fang Liu, Secretary General of ICAO, Mr. Lou Heru, Deputy Director-General of the Transport Commission of Shenzhen Municipality, and Mr. Yao Junchen, Secretary General of the Chinese Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics (CSAA).


The CSAA and the Municipality of Shenzhen will host NGAP/2 from 12 to 14 December 2018. A key objective of the event is to ensure that qualified and competent aviation professionals are available to operate, manage and maintain the future international air transport system.
