- Establish a technological innovation system, relying on Shenzhen's innovation ability, talent resources, and business environment.

Luo Gang, CEO of the Airbus China Innovation Centre said, “We are pleased with our strategic partnership with Shenzhen. The innovation centre will benefit from the advantages of policy planning, talent resources, and a favourable investment and financing environment from Shenzhen to impact global aviation innovation. The city boasts global competitive advantages in technology research and development, industrialization, and international expansion.”

As CEO, Gang’s first mission is to set up the innovation centre to be fully operational for its official opening later this year. The centre already has a number of ongoing initiatives in autonomous flight, UAM, and in-flight experience and is also in discussion with partners in relevant industries.

The new Airbus China Innovation Centre will serve to strengthen Airbus’ extended worldwide innovation ecosystem which already includes a Silicon Valley innovation centre, A3.
