TOKYO -- Brazilian regional jet maker Embraer aims to expand its share in China, despite the rapid rise of that country's homegrown manufacturer.

"We see a huge market potential there," said Arjan Meijer, CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, in an interview. The company expects worldwide demand for 5,500 jets with up to 150 seats over the next 10 years. A third of that will come from Asia, with a large part of it from China, Meijer added.
