EGAT does not discount the possibilities of setting up an MRO facility in China. Any developments in China will be in tandem with directions of EVA Air and the Evergreen Group, with input from GE.
You have secured a lot of work from Japan, from carriers such as All Nippon Airways and Skymark Airlines. What would you attribute this to, considering these carriers could have sent the work to China, where manpower costs are lower?
Although EGAT is cost-competitive, it does not merely compete on cost. Instead, it remains focused on total business value delivery. EGAT's airline partners in Japan have experienced this value and we are glad that they have selected us at EGAT as partners for success. When they thrive, we thrive.
