font size   

The General Administration of Civil Aviation (CAAC) signed a memorandum of understanding with Britain-based Rolls Royce on a 10-year staff training plan on Wednesday afternoon.

Rolls Royce will help train officials from the CAAC and senior managers of some Chinese airline companies, according to Han Jun, director of the Foreign Affairs Division of the International Affairs and Cooperation Department of the CAAC.

Rolls Royce has trained nearly 600 officials for CAAC since the mid-1990s. A training center was established jointly in 1997, in which they have trained more than 7,000 people and organized over 350 training classes on technology and management.

Besides personnel training, Rolls Royce has also supplied engines to Chinese airlines in the past six and a half decades and more since 1942. There are currently five Chinese airline companies using more than 180 Rolls Royce engines.

Before the signing of the agreement, Chinese State Councilor Chen Zhili met with Rolls Royce Chairman Simon Robertson and CEO John Rose, whose entourages include the directorate of the company. CAAC General Director Yang Yuanyuan also attended the meeting.

Rolls Royce, which attaches great importance to the Chinese market, is also expected to hold the first directorate meeting in China during its chairman's trip to the country.
