On June 25, 2016 during the official visit of Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, to China a number of documents on the program of new wide-body long-haul passenger aircraft were signed.
In particular, an agreement on cooperation in the joint development, manufacturing, commercialization and after-sales support of the wide-body long-haul passenger aircraft was signed between the Russian Federation and the Government of the People's Republic of China.
Also during the visit a contract on the establishment of a joint venture to implement the program was signed. On behalf of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) the contract was signed by its President Mr Yury Slyusar and on behalf of the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) by the Chairman Mr Jin Zhuanglong.
