In today’s outsourcing news, GE is teaming with a China aerospace company to build electronics systems for commercial aircraft customers.
What’s fascinating is how the conglomerate is spinning this, saying the deal will create 200 jobs in the US. “Our participation has the potential to grow high-tech jobs in the U.S., in addition to creating bilateral industrial cooperation with China,” said aviation unit president Lorraine Bolsinger.
Two hundred jobs? Really? All while sending important high-reliability electronics technology to the biggest economic rival of the US? Wow. I hope it’s worth it.
