Boeing CEO urges Trump to keep Ex-Im Bank or risk losing foreign sales

(Pueget Sound Business Journal, Seattle, 2 December 2016) Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg urged the new Republican administration of President-elect Donald Trump to preserve and reopen, not abolish the U.S. government's Export-Import Bank. Muilenburg said if Trump gets rid of the Ex-Im Bank, as he vowed to during the 2016 election campaign, Chicago-based Boeing (NYSE: BA), a maker of commercial and military jet aircraft, will lose foreign customers — and big contracts — to rivals in other countries, including Airbus.
