He encouraged young workers to do a good job in a down-to-earth manner while aiming high and looking far, be devoted to their duties and diligent in refining their skills, strictly conform to regulations and manuals, and be bold to make innovations and improve their skills.

Feng required civil aviation institutions to attach high importance to cultivating aircraft maintenance staff, give them humanistic care, improve their working conditions and offer them more development opportunities so as to attract more young people to get engaged in the industry.

Li Jian indicated that in recent years China’s civil aviation has kept a steady safety record, and aircraft and engines are among the most reliable ones all over the world thanks to the long-term assiduous efforts of aircraft maintenance workers. He hoped all maintenance staff could improve their skills and enhance their awareness of compliance and further implement the requirements raised in the 19th National CPC Congress Report of building an educated, skilled, and innovative workforce, fostering respect for model workers, promoting quality workmanship, and seeing that taking pride in labor becomes a social norm and seeking excellence is valued as a good work ethic.
