Japan to aid Boeing 787 aircraft sales in emerging markets

Nippon Export and Investment Insurance, a government trade insurance arm known as NEXI, and the Export-Import Bank of the U.S. will jointly guarantee lending to Ethiopian Airlines for the purchase of 787 Dreamliners as part of an effort to boost exports of the new Boeing Co. BA +0.82%  sales aircraft to emerging markets, The Nikkei reported early Thursday. The African carrier plans to buy 10 Dreamliners, with the aim of expanding operations with the fuel-efficient aircraft. It intends to borrow slightly more than $900 million from at least one U.S. financial institution to cover most of the $1.1 billion total cost.

The Ex-Im Bank will fully guarantee this loan's repayment, with NEXI to reinsure a portion of the amount. The lending will be guaranteed for 12 years, and the premium will be 3-4%.
Japanese companies such as Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., Toray Industries Inc. and Panasonic Corp. have been deeply involved in the Dreamliner project from the development stage. They manufacture about 35% of the plane, including the wings, fuselage, tires and cabin. NEXI believes that promoting the Dreamliner will help the nation's aircraft parts industry.
So far, Boeing has received orders for 859 units, but deliveries have been made only to two Japanese carriers. 
With demand for passenger jets expected to grow in emerging markets, the trade insurance bodies of Japan and the U.S. intend to offer loan guarantees and to take other steps to promote exports.
