CAAC not optimistic of cargo growth for 2012

CAAC director general Li Jiaxiang said the cargo and mail transport volume growth forecast for 2012 is not optimistic with a growth of just 2.6% citing the global as well as China's economic downturn on the one hand, while on the other hand, the statistics are merely a reflection of cargo and mail volume of China's civil aviation freight companies. Mr Li, as reported by Carnoc.com, said if adding the cargo and mail carried by foreign airlines, the actual cargo and mail transport volume will be higher than the statistics.
