Article on Airbus manufacturing strategy in atwonline news mentions:

"The manufacturer has blamed the declining value of the dollar compared to the euro for much of its recent financial woe and it views global outsourcing of A350 production as critical to keeping costs down. "We are outsourcing and offshoring suppliers to an unprecedented extent," Enders said. "We are increasingly not just outsourcing aerostructures but also engineering."

He noted that the company opened an engineering center in Bangalore last year, adding, "I'm certain Airbus will increase its footprint in India in coming years, but that doesn't necessarily mean opening a final assembly line there." Though he emphasized that there are no current plans to launch an FAL, he said, "Everything is possible in India. If they are able to graduate more engineers, then a lot of things are possible."


Is he hinting that Airbus is considering undertaking final assembly in India in the future or is he making sure that nobody mistakenly gets the idea that Airbus is considering undertaking final assembly in India in the future?

I guess this might just be positioning around any Indian contract that requires a certain % to be sourced from India.
