NEW YORK - Boeing and the Brazilian jet maker Embraer will attempt to form a joint venture that would push the U.S. aerospace giant more aggressively into the regional aircraft market.

The new company, which has faced heavy scrutiny from lawmakers in Brazil, is being valued at about $4.7 billion.

The companies said Thursday that Boeing Co. will own 80 per cent of the joint venture, and Embraer SA the remaining 20 per cent.

Brazilian lawmakers have been hesitant to allow any deal, fearing the loss of control of a major industrial and defence asset.

Any partnership between Boeing, based in Chicago, and Embraer would counter strengthening ties between Europe's Airbus and Canada's Bombardier, which have threatened Boeing.

The planes, Boeing 747-8s, would be delivered by December 2024. That would be Trump’s last full year in office if he wins a second term. Congressional committees were informed of the decision on Tuesday.Trump reached an informal deal in late February with Chicago-based Boeing for the fixed-price contract that a White House spokesman said at the time would save taxpayers $1.
