From the Paper:

"As a result of Boeing's defense systems, it has a strong international presence and its' mission consists of leadership and impact in the field of aerospace. This mission is felt internally, regionally, nationally and internationally, in research and service. Boeing's objective is to insure that it remains the Cindustry leader in the 21st century, and it has achieved this objective through a number of mergers and acquisitions. For example, in the 1990's Boeing signed an agreement with the three largest aerospace companies in Japan; Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Fuji Heavy Industries. This aerospace agreement has been crucial to Boeing's long term objectives, because these are Japanese companies. Japan is the country that Boeing buys major assemblies, products and services from, and Japan offers extremely low competitive prices. The three Japanese companies are partners in design, manufacturing, and testing portions of the 777's airframe structure. This long-term objective has assisted the company to save millions of dollars on lower priced competitive goods that are necessary to the company functions. The Japanese companies now play more significant roles in the overall production of the 777's, an objective that continues to grow at Boeing."
