Air China: “In 2013, notwithstanding the steady recovery in the global economy, the shadows of the European debt crisis have not subsided and the structural consolidation of the PRC domestic economy is at an important transition. The global aviation industry will face pressures from the slowdown of capacity growth, the accelerating adjustments in the industrial landscape and intensifying competition, among others. However, benefiting from the continuous growth and economic transitions of the Chinese economy, the growth of aviation market in the PRC will exceed its GDP growth, making it remain to be the market with the highest potential of development globally.” Source: Company statement, 27-Mar-2013.
