    Might
    I think the problem with that is, it might strike more problems in the C919 achieving certification in the US.

    And that is with someone like Bolsonaro who was put into power thanks to a coup and US funding. His son took money from US "investors" and used it in their campaigns.

    They even incarcerated the opposition leader, an ex-President, so he wouldn't run on the elections.

    AFAIK the C919 won't have the range to fly from China to the US.
    I would not count on a lot of exports for the plane either. It is really hard to displace the incumbents.
    China would have to build a huge support network for the aircraft. Same reason why the Russians have had terrible luck exporting the Sukhoi Superjet.
    Also, large civilian aircraft sales are often quite political in nature.

    Certification will be more of an issue with the CRAIC CR929.

    Tentatively reopening this thread. Please behave so I don't have to close it and/or bring out the ban hammer.

    an interesting view from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain_Pass,_California
    :
    Caught between Trump and its biggest market, America’s sole rare earths mine is an unusual victim in the US-China trade war
    • MP Materials, which runs the Mountain Pass rare earths mine, said it will kick-start its own processing operation by the end of 2020
    • China last week more than doubled the import tariffs on ores and concentrates to 25 per cent, effective June 1

    here comes this
    Opinion
    Time is ripe for Huawei to launch an IPO, to address political and security concerns once and for all https://www.scmp.com/comment/insigh...wei-launch-ipo-address-political-and-security

    • The tech firm has said it neither needs funds nor wants a distraction but a clearer ownership structure and a chance for the public to have a stake is the best way forward

    Nah. This is a bad time for Huawei to make an IPO.
    They should solve their issues with the supply chain first.

    IPO allows Western money to take control of a strategic asset
