    Reuters exclusively reports WHO-backed vaccine hub for Africa to copy Moderna COVID-19 shot 


    Health

    Reuters exclusively reported that efforts to develop an African base for COVID-19 vaccine production will focus on trying to replicate Moderna’s shot, but a lack of progress in talks with the U.S. company means the project will take time. The drive to produce vaccines in Africa is designed to help more developing countries access COVID-19 shots after rich nations bought up most of this year’s supply.

    Reuters ahead with India’s surprise cut of import taxes on vegetable oils; market reacts 


    Business & Finance

    Early Sept. 11, Reuters was well ahead of the competition reporting India’s surprise plans to cut base import taxes on palm oil, soyoil and sunflower oil, as the world’s biggest vegetable oil buyer tries to cool near-record price rises. The reduction in taxes could bring down prices of the edible oils in India and boost consumption, effectively increasing overseas buying by the south Asian country. The government issued a press release later that evening to announce the duty cut.

    Market Impact

    Malaysian palm oil futures jumped as much as 2% on Monday morning in reaction to the news.

    Reuters first to report Reddit seeks to hire advisers for U.S. IPO 


    Business & Finance

    Reuters was first to report that Reddit, the operator of online message boards that became the go-to destination for day traders chasing this year’s frenzy for so-called meme stocks, is seeking to hire investment bankers and lawyers for an initial public offering (IPO) in New York. Reddit was valued at $10 billion in a private fundraising round last month. By the time the IPO takes place early next year, Reddit hopes it will be valued at more than $15 billion.

    Reuters first to report Tokyo ready to back Western Digital-Kioxia deal if key tech stays in Japan 


    DealsTechnology

    Reuters was first to report that Japan’s trade ministry is ready to back Western Digital’s bid to merge with memory chipmaker Kioxia provided that control of cutting-edge technology stays in Japan. The tie-up could give Japan greater leverage in geopolitical rivalries increasingly dominated by technology, including over shortages of chips. It could also help Japan forge deeper semiconductor industry ties with its U.S. ally, a commitment that President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Suga made in April.

    Reuters exclusively reports Ericsson CEO to double down on China as 5G tussle rumbles on 


    Technology

    In an interview with Reuters, Ericsson’s top executive Borje Ekholm vowed to double down on efforts to regain market share lost in China after Sweden blocked Chinese suppliers from its 5G roll-out, a move that antagonized Beijing and has hit the equipment maker’s business. China accounted for about 10% of Ericsson’s revenue last year, but that fell sharply after the company’s home country of Sweden banned Huawei from its 5G networks, citing security risks – a charge that Huawei has strongly denied.

    Reuters examines rats, drought and labor shortages eat into global edible oil recovery 


    Reuters examined how a perfect storm of production headwinds, including labor shortages, heatwaves and vermin infestation, is driving collective stocks of the world’s most consumed edible oils – palm, soybean, canola (rapeseed) and sunflowerseed – to their lowest levels in a decade. In Malaysia, which accounts for around 33% of global palm oil exports, many plantations were harvesting with two-thirds or less of the required workforce, after government coronavirus restrictions cut off the usual supply of migrant workers from Indonesia and South Asia. Meanwhile, farmers in western Canada planted canola into some of the driest soils in a century this spring, sending canola futures to all-time highs in early May. The pressure on stocks is already feeding through to consumer prices and the upward trend is expected to continue, especially as refiners lift prices to cover the surge in raw material costs.

    Reuters reveals Amazon considers more proactive approach to determining what belongs on its cloud service 


    Technology

    Reuters revealed that Amazon.com Inc plans to take a more proactive approach to determine what types of content violate its cloud service policies, such as rules against promoting violence, and enforce its removal. According to a Reuters source, over the coming months, Amazon will expand the Trust & Safety team at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) division and hire a small group of people to develop expertise and work with outside researchers to monitor for future threats – a move that could turn Amazon into one of the world’s most powerful arbiters of content allowed on the internet and is likely to renew debate about how much power tech companies should have to restrict free speech.
