China, EU sign milestone agreements on civil aviation cooperation

China and the European Commission on Monday signed two milestone agreements on civil aviation, marking an important step to implement the consensuses reached by leaders from both sides during the China-EU Summit held last month.

The two agreements are Agreement on Civil Aviation Safety between China and the European Union (EU) and Agreement between China and the EU on Certain Aspects of Air Services.

The document emphasizes that the signing of these documents was the result of the EU-China summit, which took place in Brussels, Belgium, on April 9, 2019. The agreements will enhance the competitiveness of the EU aviation sector and strengthen aviation relations between the EU and China, the European Commission (EC) said.

EC Head Jean-Claude Juncker said, “In an increasingly unstable world, Europe’s partnership with China is more important than ever. The EU firmly believes that working together makes the world a stronger, safer and more prosperous place for everyone. Today we took the first big step in this direction by signing two aviation agreements with China that will create jobs, accelerate growth and bring our continents and peoples closer. Today’s agreements show the potential of our partnership, and we must continue to go about this way of cooperation”.
