The global recession has affected the international aircraft giant, Boeing that has proposed to cut around 10,000 jobs globally. Senior Vice President (Sales) Dinesh Keskar said Boeing has to remain competitive, and hence the measure of lay-off is being taken. However, not more than 25 Indians will be affected by the job cut proposal,” he added.
Keskar said even in the face of meltdown, they had received 3,700 orders for manufacture of aircraft. He said the impact of the crisis would certainly affect the company. “Recession has affected orders for 100 airplanes given by several countries. But, no order from India has been affected so far,” he said. The Seattle-based company currently employs over 1.65 lakh people across the world.
