Mr. Zuoming Lin, Chairman of the Board of AVIC, and Mr. Shuang Chen, CEO of CEL, offered their congratulations on the establishment of AVIC Precision.

The continuous development of China's aviation industry has created an urgent need for the upgrading and replacement of aircraft engines. By adhering to its strategic focuses of "market-oriented reform, professional integration and capitalistic operations", AVIC has restructured its engine vane casting business to concentrate resources on the promising growth market. By enhancing its level of professionalism and upgrading its industrial development capabilities, AVIC Prevision is well-positioned to develop advanced aircraft engine and combustion engine components with international standard.

This investment of CEL's RMB Mezzanine Fund demonstrates a successful example of "SOE restructuring" via introducing external investors and restructuring their businesses into a mixed-ownership model, which is a rising trend supported by the Chinese government. In addition, it signifies an expanded partnership between AVIC and CEL, broadening the area for collaboration between the two companies.
