Indonesia to Export Locally Produced N219 Plane to China, Mexico

Jakarta. Indonesia plans to sell its locally produced N219, a 19-seater propeller airplane manufactured by state-owned aerospace company Dirgantara Indonesia, to China and Mexico, taking advantage of airworthiness agreements Indonesia has signed with both countries.

Because there is only a plan for export.
I doubt if the N219 will be successful in China, after all they have their own Harbin Y-12, Which is similar in performance as the DHC-6 Twin Otter.
Looking to the Specs, the N219 will have a better performance than the Y-12, so hopefully the Chinese will not buy a small amount of it, and afterwards illegally copy/reverse engineer the N219 followed by production with a Chinese designation.

BTW, what is the status of the second prototype of the N219, assembling process near completion?
