Clinton: "reason to hope" Boeing to win Russia bid
MOSCOW Oct 13 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday there was reason to hope that U.S. aircraft maker Boeing (BA.N) would get a contract from Russia to build planes for its new state-run airline Rosavia.
"We have reason to hope," Clinton told reporters when asked whether she had received any signals from Russian officials that the contract would go to Boeing.
Clinton was speaking at a Boeing design centre in Moscow. (Reporting by Jeff Mason; editing by Maria Kiselyova)
