Statement from U.S. Secretary of Commerce Raimondo on Egypt, Ethiopia and Jordans’ agreements to purchase Boeing aircraft

Nov 20, 2023

At the Dubai Air Show this week, Boeing announced several deals including contracts with Egypt, Ethiopia, which was the largest-ever purchase of Boeing airplanes in African history, and Jordan. These deals included the sale of 38 Boeing 737 Max aircraft and 17 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, with options for more, amounting to approximately $21.2 billion of U.S. export content. After the announcement, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo released the following statement:

“I want to congratulate Boeing, Ethiopia, Egypt, and Jordan on their historic agreements to purchase world-class passenger aircraft, the manufacturing of which will support an estimated 90,000 U.S. jobs. This is a clear win for American workers and will contribute to economic and job growth both at home and abroad. The U.S. Department of Commerce and its Advocacy Center are proud to support U.S. exporters, such as Boeing, as they pursue international procurement opportunities and promote U.S. job creation through exports globally.”

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Advocacy Center helps U.S. companies win foreign government contracts across the globe by helping to level the playing field on behalf of U.S. business interests as they compete against foreign firms for international contracts or other U.S. export opportunities.
