About the EU-China APP
At the heart of the EU-China APP is the call for closer cooperation between the EU and China at an official and authority level and the linking of technical cooperation with policy dialogue. This is reflected in the project's objective of strengthening the economic partnership between the EU and China in the civil aviation domain. The project incorporates the idea of a close cooperation between EASA and various European project partners to bring best European aviation expertise to the project. Likewise on the Chinese side the project will interact with several Chinese stakeholders coordinated by CAAC.
For the first time, the European and Chinese aviation authorities, CAAC and EASA, directly implement activities together, in close cooperation with their partners. Initiated on 15th September 2015, the EU-China APP is set for a duration of 5 years (2015-2020) with EU funds of 10 million euros.
Next CAAC-EASA Aviation Safety Conference
The 2020 CAAC-EASA Aviation Safety Conference has been postponed; the new date will be confirmed by the organisers as soon as possible.
