Top Chinese official visits Rolls-Royce 23 October 2006
One of the most senior members of China's government, Jia Qinglin, Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Consultative Conference (CPPCC), today visited the Rolls-Royce facility in Derby, UK, which produces many of the aero engines used by China's airlines.

Mr Jia is in the UK as part of a European tour. He was accompanied to the Rolls-Royce facility by a large delegation of senior government officials.

Simon Robertson, Chairman of Rolls-Royce plc, who welcomed Mr Jia to Derby, said: 'We are delighted that another of China's senior leaders has come to visit Rolls-Royce. Our relationship with China stretches back more than 40 years. China is important for us, not just as a market for our products and services, but also as a collaborative partner in training, manufacturing and technology.'

During his visit, Mr Jia became the first visitor to be shown the new Customer Delivery Centre, where Rolls-Royce aero engines are prepared before being shipped to airlines around the world.

In recent months, Rolls-Royce has won a number of significant orders from Chinese airlines, including Air China's selection of the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 to power its new Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Air China has also this year begun taking deliveries of Airbus A330s powered by the Rolls-Royce Trent 700.

The Trent 700 has achieved a clean sweep in China, being selected by all the A330 operators. The other operators are China Southern, China Eastern, Hainan, Cathay Pacific and Dragonair. Other Rolls-Royce engines in service or on order for Chinese airlines include the Trent 500 for the A340, Trent 900 for the A380, RB211-535 for the Boeing 757, AE 3007 for the ERJ 145, and the IAE V2500 for the A320 family.
