Boeing: optimism of a solution in the China-US contrast
An aggravation would be a risk for the sale of aircraft
The trade war between the United States and China could create big problems for the aerospace company Boeing, which has one of the main markets for its aircraft in Chinese carrier. Beijing has repeatedly threatened to set a 25% US-based import tariff without ever following up on words, as it would have also been a serious damage to Chinese airlines. Despite this, the risk persists even though Vice President Boeing for Sales in Northeast Asia, Rick Anderson -speaking to the press at the "Zhuhai Airshow"- said he was optimistic that a solution would soon be found between the two countries.
A compromise is necessary and fundamental for the sales of the Seattle giant, but also of the other US companies, in a market like the Chinese one that continues to grow, and Donald Trump's choices could lead to the benefit of European and Russian competitors. The further risk in air transport is that the Chinese company for civil aviation (Comac) once it will put the CR-929 in the market could be a serious and more facilitated rival compared to Boeing (and also to Airbus).
