listening to the news tonight i was somewhat surprised to learn that quite a few parts for boeing aircraft are produced in china - i believe the number mentioned was 30% .
of course china is an important customer of boeing and so it's not really too surprising that china wants a share of the production - i had just never thought of it .

Boeing helps Chinese companies develop skills, achieve certification, and join world aviation and supplier networks. China has an increasingly sophisticated and expanding part to play in the commercial aviation industry, and has a role on all of Boeing commercial airplane models -- 737, 747, 767, 777 and 787. It builds horizontal stabilizers, vertical fins, portions of the aft tail section, doors, wing-panels and other parts on the 737; all the trailing edge wing ribs for every 747. China also has an important role on the new 787 Dreamliner airplane, building the rudder, wing-to-body fairing panels and leading edge of the vertical fin. China is the first conversion location for the new 747-400 Boeing Converted Freighter. Many parts and assemblies are built in China. Conversion, test and certification are performed in China and airplanes are delivered from China.

Boeing equity investment in China is considerable, and Boeing procurement from China is significantly greater than other aviation companies. In fact, Boeing is China's aviation manufacturing industry's largest foreign customer. But Boeing's the most critical Boeing investment in China is training, particularly safety, aviation quality practices, business and executive training, as well as technical support. Boeing is a leader in creating the U.S.-China Aviation Cooperation Program, an initiative of U.S. government and American aviation companies, working with China's Civil Aviation Administration and airlines to help advance China's commercial aviation.

Boeing is recognized as an industry leader in supporting a strong and robust US-China trade relationship. Boeing successfully promoted U.S. approval of China's accession to the World Trade Organization, and congressional approval of normal trade relations between the U.S. and China. Given the company's dedication to the success of the US-China economic relationship, Boeing remains committed to demonstrating the value of bilateral trade and advocating its continued growth.

Boeing recognizes that the company that doesn't use Chinese production facilities will be the company that doesn't sell to China.

I have a naive hope that international commerce will become so intricately tangled that international conflict will become prohibitively inconvenient.
