13 May, 2019

Cathay Pacific CEO Rupert Hogg commented on the impact of the China-US trade dispute on cargo operations, stating: "It is definitely the case that this year has been lower than last year" (South China Morning Post, 09-May-2019). Mr Hogg added: "Demand is down but it's not hugely down or catastrophic". On whether the trade dispute will affect the carrier in future, Mr Hogg said: "We just don't know what is going to happen. It's too early to say".
