China Southern Airlines: “Turning to 2011, global economies are seen to show sluggish recovery, whereas a number of uncertainties may yet drag down its pace. Developed economies are showing lack of growth momentum, while emerging economies will face serious inflation; these will affect future growth of the global economies. Where the macro-economic control imposed by the state is becoming more stringent, the growth rate for the economy is expected to slow down,” Company statement.
