In a remarkable ceremony, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) signed a Strategic Framework Agreement to cooperate with the Shantou Municipal Government of China, the Guangdong Airport Authority (GAA) and other Chinese partners, to develop and expand the local civil aviation industry as a lever of economic growth in the municipality.
