Focusing largely on standards and regulations, both crucial to a firm’s generic value chain, the report found however that when authorities take steps to reduce compliance costs, the competitiveness of SMEs is greatly improved.

It also underlined an important shift which is seeing more and more developing countries setting voluntary sustainability standards (known as VSS, these are set by businesses and NGOs) which govern international trade together with public standards and regulations.

Findings show that while 75 percent of VSS originate in countries belonging to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation

and Development, over a third of new voluntary standards are thought up in developing countries, up from eight percent in 1990.

The outlook also outlined that many regions across the world can increase their export potential “by directing regulatory efforts to boost SME competitiveness.”

In the Middle East and North Africa region for example, researchers found there is large untapped export opportunity in the fresh and processed food sec

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide follow

lowing crashes March 10 in Ethiopia and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

5元5包微信红包接龙群龙凤Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an autom

ated anti-stall device, apparently forced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fat

al plunge when it erroneously determined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.5元5包微信红包接龙群龙凤

There are about 400 MAX jets in service worldwide, including about 97 in China. Wall Street analysts expect Boeing to spend abo

5元5包微信红包接龙群龙凤ut $1 billion to update and install new software worldwide to prevent the MCAS system from rep

eatedly pointing the nose of the plane down and to prevent the system from being activated by only one of two exterior sensors.5元5包微信红包接龙群龙凤品茶微信

In the interview with the news website Axios, Muilenburg refused to5元5包微信红包接龙群龙凤

say the MCAS system was a “red flag” during the MAX’s six-year development and cer

tification process. He said there were a “number of factors” involved in the fatal crashes.5元5包微信红包接龙群龙凤品茶微信

Earlier this month, Muilenburg said he expected some MAX jets to return to commercial service by

This engaging encou5元5包微信红包接龙群419论坛品茶微信 ound and light sho

ow is the focus5元5包微信红包接龙群419论坛品茶微信 for Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, an ong

oing exhibition at the National Museum of China that runs through Sept 22. Techn

icians have used cutting-edge technology to bring to life the work of the gifted artist through an all-encompassing pr

ojection display of images taken from more than 200 paintings and drawings from the artist’s oeuvre.

The 35-minute show is being staged inside a purpose-built rectangular box occ

upying a section of the spacious third-floor corridor of the National Museum of China.

The viewer first encounters Van Gogh through a space set out like a galler

y, in which the painter’s self-portraits are displayed on wall-mounted screens. Then the gal

lery changes into different scenes inspired by Van Gogh’s iconic works, where viewers “step inside” these fam

iliar landscapes. One moment, viewers are surrounded by blossoming almond trees, while the next, they watch cr

ows flying over expansive wheat fields. Overhead, a dreamy, starlit night sky unfolds.

In recent years, Van Gogh has been the subject of many popular interactive exhibitions at home and abroad, where digital t

echnology rather than the original paintings are used to offer an insight into the painter’s life and art.
