As he prepares to bring his company’s short takeoff P-750 airplane to China’s Zhuhai International Air Show this autumn, Damien Camp, chief executive of the New Zealand light aircraft maker Pacific Aerospace, finds himself considering the risks and the benefits of doing business in China.
“We’ll be going into China without a doubt,” Mr. Camp said from his office in Hamilton, New Zealand.
Agreeing to manufacture the P-750 turboprop in China may be part of the deal.
“We don’t see any advantage from a cost perspective,” Mr. Camp said. “It’s more of a strategy for entering the market.”
