US Transportation Secretary Mary Peters and Chinese Minister of Civil Aviation Yang Yuanyuan this week officially signed the expanded aviation agreement reached in May. The deal more than doubles passenger flights between the nations by 2012 and removes all restrictions on cargo flights by 2011.

She added that the accord would "generate for the airline industry as much as $5 billion in passenger and cargo revenues over the next six years." Jul 11, 2007
