Description - Understanding China's Trade Policymaking on International Air Transport by Chrystal Zhang

This book is a political-economic analysis of China's transformation to become a global aviation power. It aims to identify the driving forces that have shaped China's ever-evolving international air transport policy direction and goals in the past four decades and further determines how and to what extent these driving forces have shaped China's considerations and strategies when executing its policy goals through bilateral air services negotiations.

The findings reveal that China's international air transport policymaking has remained in the domain of the country's aviation regulator, which has enjoyed an exclusivity to exercise its power on the air transport sector. The book argues that China's international air transport policy direction is in alignment with the country's overall strategic mission and its goal is set to support the country's endeavour to realise the "China dream." It concludes that factors at all levels interact with each other with a far-reaching impact on the country's policy direction and goal setting; however, these factors are constrained by time and circumstances.

The book is a must-read for a wide array of audiences, including, but not limited to, scholars and industry professionals who have an interest in China's political economy, policymaking, international trade, government behaviour, corporate political activities, air transport, aviation liberalisation, and bilateral negotiations.

Author Biography - Chrystal Zhang

With a PhD in Air Transport Management from Cranfield University in the UK, Chrystal has more than 20 years of industry experience working in both public and private sectors including governments, world-renowned aviation consultancy firms, and higher education institutions worldwide. Her expertise lies in regulatory compliance, strategic management, as well as the marketing analysis of both airlines and airports with the pursuit of encompassing continuous profitability. She has produced and delivered her research at numerous conferences worldwide and has published her results in academic journals and to the wider audience in newspapers. Before joining Swinburne University of Technology of Australia as a Lecturer, Chrystal was Director of Greater China of the Route Development Group Ltd. (both Routes and ASM). She played a pivotal role in the successful staging of Routes 2009 Beijing and secured several consultancy projects, in which she acted as a project director and one of the principal consultants in the successful delivery of the services. Prior to that, she was Business Development Manager of Mango Aviation Partners, a boutique firm specialising in advising low cost start-ups. She was one of the first to introduce LCC concept and business model to the Chinese market. In the 1990s, she worked for Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), being responsible for negotiating bilateral air services agreements, overseeing the implementation, and formulating rules and guidelines regulating international air transport. John F. O'Connell (Frankie) is currently an airline lecturer in the Department of Air Transport at Cranfield University. He holds an MSc in Air Transport Management from Cranfield University, an MBA (Aviation) from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and a PhD in Airline Management from Cranfield. He is also a certified IATA instructor and holds a pilot's licence. Previously Frankie worked for Boeing as an analyst for a number of years and then for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (extended campus in California) as an airline lecturer for a further five years. While at Embry-Riddle, he regularly lectured at the NASA Ames research facility at Moffett Field. For many years he has spent a large proportion of his time visiting numerous airlines on behalf of IATA, the Arab Air Carriers Organization and Cranfield University in both an advisory and training capacity on areas such as strategy, management, marketing, cost reduction, distribution and low cost carrier operations. Frankie has published papers in the Journal of Air Transport Management, Journal of Transport Geography, Journal of Airport Management, Journal of Research in Transportation Business & Management, Journal of Tourism Economics, Journal of World Review of Intermodal Research and the Journal of Air Transport Studies. In 2011 he published an edited volume with Ashgate entitled Air Transport in the 21st Century. Before joining Swinburne, she was Director Great China of the Route Development Group Ltd (acquired by UBM in 2010). She was the person to set up China office with overall responsibilities to market both Routes event and ASM consultancy services in greater Chinese markets. She played a pivotal role in the successful staging of Routes 2009 Beijing and secured several consultancy projects, in which she acted as a project director and one of the principal consultants in the successful delivery of the services. In the 1990s, she worked for CAAC being heavily involved in bilateral air services agreements negotiations and responsible for the implementation of such agreements. She therefore has gained significant personal experience and substantial first-hand knowledge of economic diplomacy, which helped her significantly in writing this book.
