On November 22, China Eastern Air Holding Co., Ltd. (CEAH) and Shanghai Airport 
Authority (Avinex) jointly organized the 2022 North Bund International Aviation 
Forum, with the theme of Sharing Opportunities of Digital Economy and 
Co-building a Green and Smart Civil Aviation. It is an annual forum held in 
Shanghai, the first of which was held in November 2021.

About 150 guests from domestic and foreign civil aviation enterprises, industry 
associations, and colleges attended the forum online or in person. They shared 
their insights around topics such as digital transformation, green aviation, 
and smart aviation via speeches and roundtable discussion. 

"The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the digitization of the airline 
industry. And all of these represent an opportunity for the civil aviation 
industry to do things better, to do things quicker, and to do things in a 
cheaper way. And I think that is the challenge, but also the opportunity that 
the industry faces. We're facing into the most exciting periods that the 
industry has ever seen," said Willie Walsh, Director General of IATA .

"Seize opportunities in a changing environment, move in the same direction, and 
work together around the world to maximize the social and economic benefits of 
the aviation industry," said Luis Felipe de Oliveira, Director General of ACI.

Li Yangmin, President of CEAH, said that the aviation industry was born out of 
mobility, develops in exchanges, and prospers along globalization. The North 
Bund International Aviation Forum fully reflects the openness, innovation and 
inclusiveness of Shanghai. China Eastern Airlines is making every effort to 
make the forum a better one, building it into an open, inclusive, united, 
cooperative, pragmatic and efficient platform. In this way, we can constantly 
enhance industry consensus in exchanges and mutual learning, jointly push the 
sustainable development of the industry, spread a strong voice to the world 
that the China's aviation industry pursues unity and cooperation, resolutely 
guards economic globalization, and strives to seek new development 
opportunities and expand new growth space.

Major achievements including "Super Carrier + Smart Aviation" of CEAH and 
"Digital Construction Achievements" of Avinex were released at the forum.
