Boeing plans on building 737-600 parts in the country, its largest manufacturing project outside the United States.
The 737-700 aircraft is a Boeing 737-8 engine and a number of parts are designed to meet the 737-900 standard.
The U.S. government’s aerospace trade office said the U.s. aerospace industry’s output in 2017 was $2,738 billion, with a combined gross domestic product of more than $19 trillion.
“We are working hard to develop a high-value product in a market that is growing, and we are committed to creating the largest, most advanced aerospace manufacturing operation in the world,” Boeing said in a statement.
The aerospace giant has said it expects to start production in 2019.
It has also said it will use the new site for manufacturing components for the 737 and 737 MAX, a larger 737 that can carry heavier payloads and is the successor to the 737 MAX.
It also said Boeing plans also to expand its production of the 737 Max, a smaller, faster version of the jet.
The company will build parts for the two jets and another 737 MAX to replace the 737 Air Force One and 737 Dreamliner that are due to enter service in 2019, Boeing said.
