Exclusive: Boeing CEO eyes major aircraft order under any U.S.-China trade deal
Boeing Co said on Tuesday that an aircraft order from China could result from any deal to end a yearlong trade war between the world’s two largest economies. Speaking to Reuters at the planemaker’s widebody aircraft factory in Everett, Boeing Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg cautioned that it was “tough to predict” the timing of a potential trade deal between the United States and China. “It’s been challenging,” Muilenburg said. “But I think ultimately they will find a solution because of the mutual interest, and we think our airplane business will be part of that ultimate solution.” “We are hopeful that if there is a trade solution, it will be beneficial to airplane orders as well,” he added, saying a healthy aerospace industry benefits both countries.
