The Silk Road Economic Belt will link China with Europe through Central and Western Asia, while the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road will connect China with Southeast Asian countries, Africa and Europe. Known collectively as “One Belt, One Road” initiated by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2013, it is aimed at rejuvenating two ancient trade routes and further opening up markets within and beyond the region. This national strategy currently under implementation in China is expected to diversify trade, investment and bilateral ties with countries along the region and enable easier domestic market access for foreign companies, creating opportunities for airlines and airports in China and around the world. On June 14, 2017, when meeting with Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel in Beijing, President Xi Jinping stressed China’s support for the construction of a Silk Road in the air between Luxembourg and Zhengzhou, capital of China’s Henan Province.With the building of the “Air Silk Road,” aviation is set to play an increasingly important part in China’s efforts of enhancing connectivity for world economic growth through the Belt and Road Initiative.

Authoritative data show that in the next 20 years the global air cargo industry will increase at an annual pace of 5% on average with China and Asia growing 7.4% and 6.8% per year. In addition, the fast-growing Cross-border E-commerce in China also brings new development opportunities and challenges for air cargo industry players.
Therefore, after the great success of past two air logistics events in Zhengzhou, the 3rd China Air Logistics Development Conference and Exhibition 2018 will be held in Zhengzhou, China again during 28-29, March with the theme “Building the Air Silk Road to accelerate the Cross-border E-Commerce”. The event aims to be a leading communication and networking platform for both international and domestic air logistics industry players. This event will present recent trends in the delivery of air cargo services and the regulatory framework to be implemented for the sustainable development of air cargo. An outlook of the challenges preventing the air cargo industry from reaching its potential will be provided in relation to specific areas, such as the construction of Air Silk Road, liberalization of air cargo services, the development of an air cargo security system, the enhancement of air cargo facilitation and the air cargo hub and its value chain.
