The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has released a proposed roadmap for developing its civilian drone industry, detailing goals to be achieved by 2025, 2030, and 2035.

CAAC said it plans to use drones in inner-city logistics and long-haul goods transport, and is calling for better regulations and expanded airspace capacity for civilian drones.

The agency said the goal of the plan, which is open for public comment until Sept. 5, is to "enhance China's international competitiveness in the field of unmanned aviation as well as the country's right to speak on international civil aviation rules and standards...and reach the goal of becoming a global civil aviation power."
