On March 7, the Boeing Company and the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Limited (COMAC) signed a cooperative agreement to jointly establish an Aviation Energy-conservation and Emission-reduction Center in Beijing.

It is noticeable that the two companies, rivals to each other in the market, are pursuing cooperation under the “green pressure”. The President and CEO of the Boeing Company Jim
Albaugh said that, in the aviation industry with fierce competitions, the cooperation of the two companies could overcome the major challenge that anyone of the two could not overcome alone.

The Boeing-COMAC Aviation Energy-conservation and Emission-reduction Center will be established inside the Beijing Aeronautical Science and Technology Research Institute. The two companies will choose and invest in every research project jointly. Specific research items include the aviation bio-fuel, aviation communication infrastructure and others.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China predicts that the volume of passenger will exceed 300 million in 2012 and reach 1.5 billion in 2030. The Boeing Company predicts that Chinese airline companies will have to buy 5,000 new planes in 2030 to meet China's huge market demand.
