China Southern Airlines: “Looking into 2013, global economy will undergo a moderate recovery. However, there are still uncertainties prolonging the weak growth. China’s economic development will remain in a period of strategic opportunities and is expected to recover moderately in 2013, which, however, affected by adverse factors such as domestic macroeconomic control and weak external demand, will not be a robust rebound. Under the influence of the overall global economic environment, demand for international aviation is expected to maintain its low growth rate in 2013. Driven by the moderate recovery of China’s economy, industrialisation, urbanisation, informatisation, agricultural modernisation and implementation of the double income plan, overall demand in China’s aviation market is expected to gradually pick up speed.” Source: Company statement, 27-Mar-2013.
