The Chinese government has given the formal go-ahead for an assembly plant for Airbus A320 narrow-body airliners to be built in the northern port city of Tianjin, the official Xinhua news agency said on Thursday.

It gave no further details in the brief report, sourced to the Tianjin branch of the powerful planning department, the National Development and Reform Commission.
(...)
Tianjin had been competing for the plant with Shanghai, Xian in the northwest and Zhuhai in the south.
(...)
Airbus and French officials have said China is likely to take a 5 to 10 percent stake in a programme to replace the A320.
(...)
The plant would have the capacity to produce up to four planes a month.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
