pressure on boeing is growing global airlines who bought the fuel efficient long range aircraft had to cancel flights and scramble to find replacements on routes flown by the 737 max air china and other carriers are demanding substantial compensation. over to our washington correspondent helen humphrey helen or i bet is also going to be pressure on boeing over other on u.s. aviation regulators because they were the last to ground this plane. absolutely ben make no mistake the f.a.a. is in the hot seat at that meeting in texas today international regulators all 33 of them are there that meeting and they want answers we're also seeing ethiopia's regulator there and of course that was one of the countries where sadly this plane came down and we're not just talking about the safety of passengers in these jets we're also talking about the safety of people on the ground so you know the f.a.a.

here in the united states used to be held up as the gold standard it had a strikingly slow response in the wake of these tragedies and some people say that it exposed a very close relationship between the trumpet ministration and boeing executives and boeing is certainly a low being powerhouse here in washington d.c. so helena how much is this about flight safety or the competition in the skies think that's a very good question and some people accuse the f.a.a. of being a consulting firm to a boeing and certainly these 2 tragedies expose some warrants and practices namely that the f.a.a. was allowing boeing to self certify its software with deadly consequences and that is going to have to change could this be the chance that china's been waiting for to break up the boeing air bus joyfully. i think it's fair to say with boeing's reputation in tatters right now this may be the

opportunity that china has been looking for it is the world's largest aviation market and it is trying to build a rival plane of its own a model called the comac c no i know one that 9 now progress has been halted slightly due to the fact that the trade war between the u.s. and china has halted some flow of expertise as well as materials you need an awful lot of expertise as you can imagine to build such a plane but at the end of the day in the future china will come up with one of these planes and boss and boeing will just have to well they come up with the goods so get used to a new reality you heard from helen humphrey in washington for us thank you very much all the criticisms coming thick and fast a bunk chiefs facing the heat from investors at today's annual general meeting and then. making money and dealing with litigation the answer from chief executive on saving is even tough cuts. georgia bank shareholders are unhappy.

about this 1st thing about natural resources still being the focus how much of a worry is that for the development of these african economies you know it is it continues to be a worry because countries need to diversify their economies. and the concentration in natural resources with out the added value i think keeps these countries from moving into the next level of development and there is. so many different sectors that investors could be getting into just to name a few of the things we've covered over the past few weeks here i'm sure his music industry cloud computing in south africa artificial intelligence in ethiopia. the africans out of stage that that they're saying yeah come and put your money here this is a huge market absolutely they see the opportunities and they are wanting and encouraging investment in the sectors but there are other sectors as well infrastructure agriculture technology service industries there are

a number of areas that we see possibilities for companies to invest in the continent if i had a company or a whole heap of money and i wanted to invest it somewhere in africa where would you suggest. i'm going to hurt the feelings of some friends that i probably say ethiopia is is a huge opportunity kenya continues to draw investments south africa of course nigeria the biggest market on the continent of africa gonna cote d'ivoire there are number of places and it just requires a lot of. interest and an effort and i think countries will find that this instance i interested in businesses will find that they can make money so you need perseverance as an investor but you do what are some of the challenges that you would then warn me about infrastructure is a huge challenge having the roads and the buildings and and the technology
7:26 pm
infrastructure is huge governance is an issue in many countries that includes corruption capacity these countries have huge huge youth populations that need to be educated and prepared. 3rd so those would be the 3 but there are others said but i think all of these challenges can be dealt with and i think companies will find that again doing this in south africa is no different than doing business anywhere else in the world what about this trade will between the u.s. and china how is that affecting africa you know at this point i don't think africa is impacted by this trade war the chinese are there in a big way on the continent of africa in the belt road initiative as you mentioned earlier they are infrastructure projects that the chinese are involved in so except i think maybe in the future in terms of technology with how a company being under under sanctions that might impact africa but right now africa
7:27 pm
