Barcelona eyes aerospace alliance

THE Barcelona Aeronautics and Space Association is seeking closer cooperation with Shanghai, which contributes significantly to Chinese aerospace projects, one of the association's top officials said yesterday at a forum at the World Expo.

Gloria Garcia Cuadrado, director of the association, said developments are still at an early stage but that both sides "have a culture of open-mindedness and hard work."

Shanghai can improve skills ranging from design, engineering and airport planning in cooperation with Barcelona - a key aerospace equipment manufacturing base for the European Union.

Zhang Jingpei, a senior engineer with the local astronautical society, said China excels at plane and aircraft assembly while Spain has many advantages in designing human-oriented aircraft cabins.

Another important part of the cooperation involves training Chinese pilots in Barcelona, officials said.
