China Southern Airlines: “Looking into the second half of 2010, benefitting from steady growth in the domestic economy and optimal adjustment to economic structures, the aviation market will remain a sound momentum for rapid growth, while the improvement in national income, supported by a stimulus plan promulgated by the state, shall continue to lay a solid foundation for the aviation industry. However, we are also aware of the fact that the global economic recovery falters, and the domestic economy, affected by structure adjustment and implementation of macroeconomic control policies, may slow down. The company also faces a new challenge from the operation of high speed railways,” Company statement. Source: China Southern Airlines, 17-Aug-2010.
