On April 8, 2008, the National Civil Aerospace Industrial Base of Xi'an, approved by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), was unveiled. This is another landmark development in the history of the civil aerospace industry after the State Civilian Aerospace Industry Base of Shanghai was launched on December 22, 2007.

By then, the layout of the civil aerospace industry had taken shape both in the East and West. Xi'an will become China's second aerospace manufacturing center – just preceded by Shanghai.

The orientation of Xi'an's Civil Aerospace Industrial Base set by the NDRC is as follows: apply and develop aerospace technology and products by upholding the nation's mid- and long-term spaceflight development strategy and developing satellite applications including satellite communication broadcasts, satellite navigation and remote sensory satellites; drive the industrial development of advanced technology such as spaceflight information technology (IT), new-type material and advanced energy; guide the industry by garnering advanced technology with distinct characteristics and outstanding focus to make the country's civil aerospace industry an up-scale one.
