CAUC trains South Pacific aviation professionals


The Civil Aviation University of China (CAUC) trained seven aviation officials and technicians from the South Pacific island nations of Fiji and Tonga from September 17th to 26th. The trainees received free instructions in cargo and passenger transportation and ground services in the CAUC in the North China city of Tianjin. The ten-day program is part of the commitment made a year ago by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao to provide training for 2,000 government officials and technical staff from the Pacific island countries and aid them in capacity building. During his official visit to Fiji last April, Wen also pledged three billion yuan (397 million U.S. dollars) in preferential loans at a high-level economic forum. This is to encourage Chinese investment, lessen the burden of debt and bring about other policies favorable to Pacific island countries. An affiliate of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, the CAUC has been sanctioned by China’s aviation authority to train air traffic controllers, air transport agents and other aviation industry staff. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) also authorized the university to conduct training in air and dangerous goods transport.
