“So last November, when I was in Indonesia, Boeing announced a deal – with the help of the Export-Import Bank – to sell more than 200 planes to one of the fastest growing airlines in the world. Boeing is one of the largest exporters in the world. This is one of the biggest deals Boeing had ever done.”
