Diversification opportunity - Boeing

With a USD 100 bn in orders for this new plane, Governor Rick Snyder, Detroit, and Michigan should be pursuing this opportunity very hard. Glad (and a bit surprised) to see my Congressman on the ball for this one. Aerospace would be a great complement to our existing industry and help suppliers diversify from automotive cycles. Plus, Boeing was from Detroit, Michigan to begin with. To top it all, we are actually a right to work state at the moment. Amazing. Not sure if we can use the Dubai-Detroit sister city aspect on this one though, unfortuately.
Chances like this don't come around very often. Hopefully, local leaders will realize the opening and seize the opportunity.

Here is Free Press coverage of Congressman Bentivolio's pitch:
