It is true that Li has turned Air China into mainland"s most profitable carrier, but as the new minister of CAAC, he needs to keep in mind that safety must remain his first priority.

Running an airline successfully is not easy, but managing the civil aviation sector is doubtlessly much more complicated, so the road ahead for Li Jiaxiang will be very challenging.

From the past week, we can see that Li is not publicly expressing his opinions on the China Eastern/SIA deal anymore, which is understandable as his new role requires him to be "reasonably fair" to all Chinese airlines and not to interfer with market transactions as a regulator.CARNOC_EN(01/06/08 15:18)
