Company to Promote Shanghai Symposium
announced that Boeing will be a major sponsor of the Inaugural
Shanghai International Aviation Symposium, to be held April 28-30,
2004 in Shanghai. The symposium will be held at The Portman
Ritz-Carlton in Shanghai. Under its sponsorship agreement with the
symposium, Boeing will showcase the 717 program's operational
successes to symposium attendees, who will include some of the
aviation industry's best-known executives.
With an informal format that includes high audience
participation, the Shanghai International Aviation Symposium is a
forum for industry leaders to discuss the important issues of the
changing aviation world in the setting of one of the airline
industry's most important growth markets today -- the People's
Republic of China. Also present will be a presenter from Boeing's
7E7 program, educating attendees on the benefits associated with
Boeing's new super-efficient long-range model.
"Boeing is confident that the Inaugural Shanghai International
Aviation Symposium will serve as a valuable way to reach not only
China's aviation leadership, but global aviation leaders as well,"
said Pat McKenna, director of Boeing's 717 program. "The People's
Republic of China, as the world's fastest growing aviation market
today, is an ideal environment for airline operators to realize the
tremendous operating efficiencies of the rugged Boeing 717."

Current Market Outlook (CMO), Boeing forecast a requirement in
China for nearly 2,400 new jet airplanes worth $197 billion over
the next 20 years, two thirds of them single aisle aircraft like
the Boeing 717. Another 22 percent will be intermediate-size,
twin-aisle airplanes, and just four percent will be 747-size and
