Secretary of State Hillary Clinton toured the modern Boeing Design Center in Moscow Tuesday, where 1,400 engineers work.

“This is a very exciting visit for me,” Clinton said in remarks after the tour. “I feel like I should apologize to all of the engineers because we’re interrupting their legendary 24-hour workday. Because of the connections with Wichita and Seattle, they literally work around the clock, and it shows in terms of their productivity and the results.”

Boeing engineers in Wichita have long worked with engineers at the Design Center on a variety of work packages.

Their work “does illustrate the kind of closer collaboration that we’re seeking to encourage between American companies and Russian companies, between American experts and Russian experts – in this case engineers- who are the very best in the world,” Clinton said.
