PRESS DIGEST- New York Times business news - March 24
March 24 The following are the top stories on the New York Times business pages. Reuters has not verified these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.
OTTAWA Boeing Co (BA.N) is still very much engaged with South Korea over the possible sale of F-15 fighter jets, despite the Seoul government's move last month to restart a multibillion-dollar tender process, a senior Boeing executive told Reuters on Thursday.
The F-15 had been poised to win the tender, but Seoul pulled the plug after former military top brass and ruling party lawmakers criticized the plane for lacking stealth capabilities.
"What they decided to do was to delay and take another look, so we're still very much engaged there with the F-15. That competition has been delayed and restructured but it's not over," said Dennis Muilenburg, who heads Boeing's defense unit.
