Delays Announcing A Major Deal Because Of Emissions
China is reportedly not happy with the European Union over its
proposed requirement for all airlines which fly to EC member
nations to reduce carbon emissions ... so much so that it delayed a
major announcement that would have been made at the Paris Air Show
Hong Kong airlines was expected to announced that it was
purchasing 10 A380 jetliners, but the Wall Street Journal
reports that an Airbus spokesman said the announcement was being
delayed due to "the political environment."
While the deal has already apparently been completed and does
not appear to be in jeopardy, a source told the paper that Chinese
airlines are not allowed to "get into deals with Europe" for the
time being. A spokesperson for the Chinese government said only
that his country is "opposed to the EU's inclusion" of its airlines
in the carbon trading scheme.
The Chinese position might also delay an announcement that was
expected when German Chancellor Angela Merkel meets for talks with
Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao next week in Berlin.
