Updated 2016-10-24 12:59:35 Xinhua

The southwest China city of Chengdu will host a key general aviation exposition in late November with the participation of over 200 manufacturers of business and utility jets from around the world, organizers said Sunday.

The 2016 China International General Aviation Expo will be held at Xinjin Airport in Chengdu from Nov. 25 to 27 by the Civil Aviation Administration of China and the Chengdu Municipal Government.

Jet makers and equipment suppliers, including Raytheon, Conrad, and ANPC of the United States, Thales of France, and Lufthansa Technik of Germany are expected to showcase the latest innovations in the industry, the organizers said.

More than a hundred aircraft will be on display and some will be flown in an air show. The public is also invited to assemble models or try flight stimulation.

General aviation is considered a fledgling industry in China. The market is estimated to grow to 150 billion yuan (about 22 billion U.S. dollars) by 2020.

Bill Schultz, senior vice president of Textron Aviation's China operations, said that as business jets are relatively new in China, the company is confident about its market growth in the country.
