"We've seen a real shift in customer acceptance of electric vehicles, and our demand is the best we've ever seen." (April 26)
Alcoa Corp. CEO Roy C. Harvey:
"An important point to consider for the future is China's evolving role in the global aluminum industry. We have been encouraged to see the strict discipline now evident in their issuance and enforcement of operating permits that comply with their supply-side reforms and environmental targets. And over these last months, it is obvious that the country with the world's largest capacity in aluminum is working to reduce its carbon footprint, with increasing impacts on today's and tomorrow's aluminum operations."
Harley-Davidson Inc. CEO Jochen Zeitz:
"We are seeing very strong demand in China," Mr. Zeitz said. "We have high hopes for the Chinese market. It's a huge opportunity that we're tapping into. And all the efforts that we are taking out of markets that really didn't make a difference from a profitability point of view, we're putting into the core markets in Asia, mainly China, Japan, Korea and a few others. But we think there's a long-term significant opportunity in the region."
