BoeingLogo1 EbizBoeing is looking at overseas markets as the U.S. government trims its defense spending and as the company prepares to cease production of its legacy fleets, Defense News reported Monday.

Aaron Mehta writes the company will stop making the C-17 military transport plane in 2015 and may close the assembly lines for the F-15 by 2018 and the F-18 before 2020.

“The international market is just a great opportunity for us,“ said Travis Sullivan, vice president of strategy and business capture at Boeing Defense, adding that “we“™re going to continue to pursue that, notwithstanding what is happening here in the U.S.“

Defense News reports Boeing and Brazilian aerospace firm Embraer reached an agreement in June to offer the KC-390 airlifter to customers in the U.S., Middle East and U.K.

Boeing is also collaborating with Saab to compete on a Defense Department trainer aircraft acquisition program, Mehta writes.

Sullivan told Defense News that Boeing plans to expand its domestic and global business through either a merger and acquisition, a partnership or a joint venture.
