Boeing may reimburse airlines for 737 MAX grounding

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer

上海千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.

The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊

urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.

Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.上海千花坊品茶微信

“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con

sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp

ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”上海千花坊

The 10,000-member pilots union for Southwest Airlines said this month it will ask B

oeing  for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.

上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept

2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”

上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa

rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c

ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi

a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo

rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter

mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.

Meanwhile, the law imposes heavier fines on produce

cers and sellers of defective vaccines. Those prod

ucing or selling fake vaccines shall face a fine of 15 to 50 times the value of the illicit product上海千花坊女神会所

s, while substandard vaccine makers or sellers face a fine of 10 to 30 times the value.

上海千花坊It also raises the threshold for fines, by stipulating that fake or substandard vaccines worth less than 500,000 yuan ($72,908) shall be calculated as 500,000 yuan.

Production and business operation will be suspended for rectification, and drug registration certificates or even pharmaceutical production licenses can be revoked, it said.上海千花坊女神会所

The tough punishments will exert positive impacts on the whole-process supervision of vaccines, said Jiao Hong, head of the National Medical Products Administration.

It will further enhance the quality of the country’s vaccines and boost the public’s confide上海千花坊

nce on vaccine safety, Jiao said at a press conference held after the five-day legislative session closed.

An autopsy will be carried out to help determine the reason behind the death of a 3-year-old girl from Lianyungang, Jiang

上海千花坊女神会所su province, who died after receiving a rabies vaccine, the local government was quoted as saying on Tuesday.

The girl, surnamed Zhang, was scratched by the pet dog of her classmate on April 26. After about 23 hours, she received a freeze-dried rabies vaccine at a local hosp

ital. But early April 28, the girl suffered a febrile convulsion and was rushed to hospital for emergency treatment. She died later that day.

The case has attracted attention from netizens who wondered whether the death could be caused by disqualified vaccines.上海千花坊女神会所

According to The Paper, a preliminary investigation by local health authorities showed

no recipients had adverse reactions after getting vaccines from the same batch between March 11 and April 30.

The investigation also showed the hospital where she was vaccinated and the doctor involv

ed are qualified, the vaccine used was within its validity period and there is no problem found in its

cold-chain transportation. As required by the girl’s family, the hospital has kept a vaccine of the same batch as a sample to check.

s take a bow at globally important Guangzhou fairsing num

An increasing number of small and medium-sized enterprises are stepping outside of

上海419女神会所their own countries and regions to reach global markets with the help of an imp

ortant annual fair in Guangzhou, capital of South China’s Guangdong province.

The China International SME Fair – which has focused on establishing a platfor上海419

m for displays of transactions, exchanges and cooperation among SMEs around the world since 2004 – will be

held from Oct 10-13 in Poly World Trade Expo Center this year, according to the event’s organizer.

SMEs take a bow at globally important Guangzhou fair

“We have designed a series of activities to bring substantial benefits and business opportuni上海419女神会所

ties to international SME exhibitors, so that they can better participate in the industri

al and economic chains of the world,” said He Zuoxian, deputy director-general of the Guan

gdong SME Bureau and director-general of the China International SME Fair Bureau上海419.

He, speaking at a media briefing on Tuesday, said activities at the fair would i上海419

nclude cross-border business matchmaking events, a promotional tour along the Belt and Road countries and regions, investment and funds sourcing promotions especially for overseas delegations, as well as procurement meetings.

Debate moderators are expected to raise such topics a

topics as economy, healthcare, education, immigration, climate change, and forei

gn policy, similar to those for the first group of partic上海楼凤ipants on Wednesday night.

上海楼凤According to debate rules, each candidate will have 60 seconds to answer questions and 30 se

conds for rebuttals. There are no opening statements, but each candidate will have one minute for a closing statement.

Wednesday’s debate was attended by Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts上海楼凤

, another top-tier contender, along with former Congressman Beto O’Rourke of Texas, Senator

上海楼凤Cory Booker of New Jersey, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, and five others.

Together, 20 candidates qualified for the first primary debate for either scoring at least 1 perce

nt support in three qualifying polls or receiving donations from at least 65,000 unique donors.

The two-night debate, hosted by NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo at Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Cen上海楼凤

er for the Performing Arts, was the first of a dozen that the Democratic National Committee had planned for the party’s primary.

The second debate is scheduled for July 30-31 in Detroit, Michigan.

WASHINGTON – The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Senate’s version of t

上海楼凤he emergency border funding bill after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reversed course amid pressure from

上海楼凤品茶微信moderate Democrats to tackle the migrant surge along the US-Mexico border immediately.

The Democrat-controlled House voted 305 to 102. Senate Maj

ority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump supports the Senate bill.

“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluct上海楼凤品茶微信

antly pass the Senate bill,” Pelosi wrote in a statement before the Thursday voting.

“The children come first,” Pelosi said. “At the end of the day, we

have to make sure that the resources needed to protect the children are available.”

上海楼凤品茶微信The sudden setback for Pelosi came amid heavy pressure from moderate Democ

ratic lawmakers who are seen as most vulnerable at the 2020 U.S. general elections, local analysts said.

House Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democratic leader of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told Pelosi Thur

sday morning that he had rallied enough moderate 上海楼凤品茶微信Democrats to take down the rule on the amended House bill.

Recent media reports of horrific conditions facing children at border det

上海楼凤品茶微信ention centers and the release of a photograph depicting a father and daughter drowned face-down in the Rio Gra

nde River near Brownsville, Texas, also created new urgency for Congress to act before the July 4 recess.

Four original engravings by the artist courtesy of Chinese collector Jiang Xingdao, foun上海夜生活

ritain’s Conservative Party leadership contest frontrunner Boris Johnson has backtracked on his prev

上海夜生活ious comments made on Brexit negotiations, saying there is only a “millio

n-to-one” chance that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a deal.

Just a day after he stoked concern by promising in a radio interview to leave the EU on Oct 31 “come wh

at may, do or die” with a no-deal Brexit, Johnson stated he did not believe that was where Britain would “end up”.

In a Conservative party hustings on Wednesday evening, Johnson said: “It’s absolutely vital that we prepare for a no-deal outcome if we’re going to get the deal that we need.

“上海夜生活女神会所I don’t think that’s where we’re going to end up — I think it’s a million to one against — but it’s vital that we prepare.”

The EU has said it will not return to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal deal, rejected three

times by UK Parliament, and experts are sceptical a new prime minister can secure any changes to the

controversial Northern Ireland backstop hated by Eurosceptic MPs by the end of October.

Both men vying to be the next prime minster, Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, have said they would back a no-

deal Brexit departure from the EU, if a new withdrawal agreement with Brussels couldn’t be reached.上海夜生活女神会所

Johnson said there was a new feeling of “common sense breaking out” among members of Parliament

in favor of passing a deal. He played down the idea that he would prorogue – or susp

end – Parliament in order to secure a departure on Oct 31, but did not entirely rule it out.

上海夜生活女神会所The exhibition, co-hosted by the Cervantes Institute and the Picasso Museum

in Malaga, where the artist was born, will move to Shanghai after running in Beijing.

hinese consumers to drive future global growth

One of Britain’s leading economists said Chinese consumer 上海品茶微信s will be the driving force of future global economic growth.

Jim O’Neill, chair of the international think tank Chatham House and former chief econom

i 上海品茶微信st at Goldman Sachs, made the remarks in a speech on Wednesday at the celebration of the 70th anniversary of th

e founding of the People’s Republic of China and the second China-UK Economic and Trade Forum in London.

“What happens to the Chinese consumers is more important to China’s future,” O’Neill said.

“If China continues with 8 percent nominal GDP gr 上海品茶微信owth, which I believe is 5 percent real (GDP growth), and 3 percent pri

ces (meaning inflation), and if the Chinese consumers become the 50 percent of that total, the change from the next

year to the next decade is somewhere between $11 to $12 trillion, which is equivalent to create another China,” he said.上海品茶微信

O’Neill i 上海品茶微信s known for coining the term BRIC, the group term for Brazil, Russia, India and China, in 2001, to describe the four rapidly-developing nations that symbolized the shifting balance in the global economy.

South Africa was added to the group nine years later, making it BRICS.

“China remains the only one of the BRICS countries that aft上海品茶微信er 17 years has actually done exactly what we had expected it would achieve,” he said.

His opinion is that the ongoing trade dispute with the Un

ited States is not the most important challenge the country currently faces.

To continue its success, O’Neill said, China ne

上海品茶微信女神会所eds to address aspects of its aging population, which is a key contr

ibutor to the economic growth slowdown, and tackle environmental issues and population control in urban areas.

O’Neill is a former British commercial secretary to the Treasury. He said the Belt and Road Initiative, or BRI, initiated six ye

ars ago, will play a “hugely important” role in global trade, which has been buffeted by rising protectionism and unilateralism.

The BRI aims to build the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road and deliver policies, infra

structure, trade, financial and people-to-people c上海品茶微信女神会所onnectivity via a new platform for a brighter future.

“If it can be implemented collectively, it can transform the trade pattern in Asia, p

articularly between China and India, two of the major BRICS countries,” he added.

Geng Shuang, spokesman of the Foreign Ministry

d China has always called for resolving trade tensions with the US through dia

上海千花坊logue and consultation, but it will firmly safeguard its own legitimate interests.

US threats to impose more tariffs on Chinese imports cannot intimidate the Chinese people, Geng added.上海千花坊

Gao said China’s stance toward tariffs is clear, that the country has always opposed

unilaterally imposed tariffs. “The US trade bullying eventually hurts its own businesses and consumers,” he said.上海千花坊女神会所

The “unreliable entities” list-a blacklist of foreign parties that, for noncom

上海千花坊mercial reasons, harm the interests of Chinese companies, will be released soon,

Gao said. Companies that abide by Chinese law and the spirit of contracts have nothing to worry about, he said.

上海千花坊女神会所Zhou Mi, deputy director of the Institute of American and Oceania Studies of the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Eco

nomic Cooperation, said it is necessary for China to push forward with the list of “unreliable entities,” and export restriction measures.

“These moves will bring about institutional improvement,” Zhou said. “They are

上海千花坊女神会所not meant to punish any company, but to guide all market entities to abide by the laws, regulations and commercial con

tracts. They can further level the playing field for both homegrown and foreign companies.”上海千花坊
