many executives are old school. Smoothing play a big part of meet and greet. Probably will not see much drop in air travel till the current generation of executives retired
I doubt it seeing how much companies can save with the new systems without much setbacks. At the end its all about the bottom line. Top executives may fly to remote locations but the mid level who also were flying will sit in a conference room talking to the PC with a head set or conference speakers.
It's the new norm, people will need to adapt.
Remote offices will also become part of that new norm with only one third or half commuting on a rotation basis while the rest works at home.

I have my doubts. Old habits die hard, and it is hard to build relationships over Zoom vs in a hotel bar. We’ll find out in a year or so after most people get vaccinated.

Just to be clear I am not talking about meetings with clients, I am talking about meetings with other colleagues within the company stationed at different locations. Whether it be brainstorming, update reporting and/or in-house seminars there is always so many taking place within the company.
Even with client meetings, I doubt all will be the same. Some clients even before this corona incident preferred some meetings to be taken through video conferences.

I do wonder how this compares to the Hongdu/Yak CJ-7. I am unsure if this would be a potential replacement for CJ-7 in the PLAAF, or if CJ-7 is still more advanced because it has retractable landing gear and tandem seating vs side-by-side. Still this is a very nice plane to fill out AVIC's portfolio. They have always been a bit weak in this area.
AG1000 is mainly aimed at civilian pilot training and flying clubs in China. Chinese civil aviation needs tens of thousands of airliner pilots.

Due to shortage of Chinese civilian pilots, there are many foreign pilots currently working in China. Therefore there is a potentially large market for pilot training schools there.
