China Eastern Airlines: “In the second half of 2016, greater uncertainties exist in the global economy as affected by the decision of withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union in the Brexit referendum and the escalated disputes in the geopolitics worldwide. It is expected that economic recovery will be weak on a full-year basis.” Source: Company statement, 30-Aug-2016.
