Dépèche transmise le 7 octobre 2009 par Business Wire

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9d8730/contemporary_issue) has announced the addition of the "Contemporary Issues Shaping China's Civil Aviation Policy: Balancing International with Domestic Priorities" report to their offering.

The emergence of China as a future major participant in international aviation raises some interesting questions, especially from a strategic policy perspective. The progressive shift from a command to a mixed market economy under the central leadership of the Beijing administration now finds itself faced with the needs to balance a strategic duality in the context of the role of China's civil aviation industry. In a very real sense this situation requires the design and accommodation of a growing role for China's mainstream carriers within the operational context of the need to meet the complex challenges from increasing international market competition.

In parallel with such major external pressures, central government must also accommodate domestic priorities with regard to internal economic development. The fruits of economic progress as a function of market reform are commonly understood to have positively reshaped the live of only a proportion of the national population to date. The need to create greater access to economic growth for the more remote western and northern provinces has required that the rapid development of airports become a factor in the planning and allocation of developmental priorities. To complicate matters further, prevailing requirements of airspace defence remain a major parameter within the larger context of national aviation policy.

This book explores the political, economic and strategic issues raised by the inevitable tension between the domestic and international aspects of Beijing's current civil aviation strategy. It also seeks to identify some of the problems that face the industry as a key sector in the larger context of macroeconomic reform and the further pressures now being exerted by China's membership of the WTO.

'Professor Alan William's new book, Contemporary Issues Shaping China's Civil Aviation Policy, breaks new ground in its field and will be of use both to academics and policy makers interested in the subject. As the PRC is fast becoming a major player in civil aviation, this work ably fills a gap in the literature.' Malcolm Warner, Wolfson College and Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, UK

'This authoritative study could not be more timely, as China launches its programme to build large indigenous commercial aircraft to rival Boeing and Airbus.' Peter Nolan, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, UK
