Air transport and services along its value chain all enjoy broad growth prospect. The Party Secretary expressed satisfaction with the good cooperation Rolls-Royce has with important Chinese airlines and with China Eastern in particular, and pledged the city’s commitment to better business environment for all types of companies as well as full support for win-win cooperation between businesses.
