Boeing bags bonanza aircraft deal with Beijing

Boeing has announced it has won orders and commitments for 300 aircraft from China.

The deal is said to be worth some $38bn.

Boeing timed the announcement for the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Boeing’s Everett factory in Washington.

The president passed on his complements to the aircraft manufacturer:

“Boeing has long been a supporter, participant and promoter of business cooperation between China and the United States. Boeing is an excellent example of win- win business cooperation between China and the United States.”

Not everyone is happy as as the plane maker is due to build a 737 completion centre in China that would finish, paint and deliver the aircraft.

Boeing said it does not plan any job cuts in the US.

The workers are not convinced.
