Since the Several Opinions of the State Council on Promoting the Development of the Aviation Industry was published on July 12, what will it bring to the development of the civil aviation industry of China and what influences will it bring to the lives of people? Regarding these questions, People’s Daily had an interview with Li Jiaxiang, the director general of Civil Aviation Administration of China.

The level of safety ranks highest in the world, with major accident rate (per 1 million hours) less than 0.15.

According to Li, the "Opinions" is the first state-level overall guideline designed and issued specifically to promote the development of the civil aviation industry. It is an all-round plan on the future development of the sector, proposing the idea of "people-oriented and safety first", putting continuous safety concept into practice and providing the public with safe and high-quality aviation services.

The "Opinions" outlines the goals and tasks of the civil aviation industry by 2020.

The "Opinions" proposes that great efforts should be made to increase the flight punctuality rate in the future.

The current 182 airports in China cannot meet the demand of the public so more airports will be built ahead of time.

The "Opinions" defines ten tasks in the future development, among which the task of airport construction is quite eye-catching.

According to the "Opinions", the airport planning and construction in China must be both moderate and appropriate.

Li said that China only has 182 airports at present while there are over 19,000 commercial airports in America, over 700 airports in Brazil and South Africa respectively, as well as more than 100 airports in Japan.
