Daily Digit: Boeing's $20.7 Bln China Order


Boeing is selling 200 of its 737 Max planes to clients in China. The deals are worth a combined $20.7 billion at list prices, but must be approved by the Chinese government, before the buyers can be identified. Reuters sources say they include state-owned airlines, China Aviation Supplies Holding Company and leasing firms associated with the country's banks. These are the first commitments from China for the 737 Max, the upgraded version of Boeing's best-selling short-haul planes.
