GUANGZHOU -- Aircraft maker Airbus aims to accelerate development of next-generation planes by working with Huawei Technologies and other Chinese companies at an innovation center it recently opened in Shenzhen, known as the Silicon Valley of China.

The facility in Guangdong Province marks only Airbus' second lab of its kind outside of its home in Europe, with the other location in America's Silicon Valley. Investment in the new center is expected to total 10 million euros ($11.4 million).
