Looks like a "Chinese Copy" (only those who have been on A.Net for a while will get that one), of the A320 NEO. Theoretically, China can take any of the airliners they have bought and reverse engineer them. Or, expropriate the Airbus (and soon Boeing) factories within their borders.
Given that this plane is a Chinese plane, made by a Chinese firm, that will be a different consideration. Also, different when they launch a cheaper copy of the A350/787 and A380, etc... A better example to point to is the MA
-60, which for the most part has not seemed to create too many hassles for the few operators.
Either way, they need to make sure that there is a regular supply chain for parts as needed and that they can be easily serviced abroad, and the best way to do that is to sell a lot of them. The Superjet was really lucky to get the customer in Mexico as it will make all the difference. China will have to overcome their perceived reputation as a national brand, before any airplane is widely accepted. Right now, the perception is they don't mind putting lead in toys, and harmful enzymes in baby & dog food. People don't want to fly on planes where they think the manufacturer doesn't mind taking short cuts.
To the chap that said the iPhones when referencing quality: This is sort of the issue, it's not a Chinese firm making them, it's a Taiwanese company, under strict supervision of Apple. The glass I think is made by Corning, so if that sucks, blame us Yanks. I've dropped mine from shoulder height too many times and no problems.
Keep on truckin'...
