Conflict also disrupts growth. Although many conflic

icts appear to have a religious or ethnic basis, some scholars believe their root cause may be economic, with ethnic divisio

s serving as a way to exclude other groups from access to scarce resources and opportunities. Whatever its so

urce, inequality of opportunity has a highly disruptive effect on governance and hence growth.

But these obstacles are not insurmountable. For one th

ing, developing countries now have huge potential export markets in middle-inc

ome countries, and no longer depend entirely on advanced economies for access to global markets.

Belt and Road can play vital development role

There is also a renewed awareness of the importance of infrastructure in e

nabling growth. In addition to roads, railways and ports, electricity and digital conn

ectivity are crucial. In this regard, the rapid expansion of cellular wireless technology, combined with the install

ation of high-capacity undersea broadband pipes around Africa, represents major prog

China’s tech heavyweights said the digital economy ha

s become a driving force behind economic growth, and interne

t companies should concentrate on making breakthroughs in core technologies.

“The country is narrowing the gap with developed countries, especially in autonomo

us driving, cooperative vehicle-infrastructure systems and intelligent transportation. We started a little late, but o

ur pace is faster and our potential is bigger,” said Robin Li, chairman and CEO of leading Chinese search engine Baidu Inc.

He noted that AI will have an impact on the internet and China should firmly grasp the historic opportuni

ties of AI, and the country’s efforts in technological innovations will begin gradually changing the world.

Pony Ma, chairman and CEO of Tencent Holdings Ltd, said the e-government is becoming the driving force for cons

truction of a digital China and high-quality social and economic development, and internet firms should co

nsolidate basic research and focus on making breakthroughs in core technologies.

If the nose of the Boeing Max 8 model rises, threaten

ning a midair stall, the MCAS system automatically points the plane’s nose down

to gain speed needed to stay aloft. Boeing added larger, more fuel-efficient engines to upgr

ade the existing 737 airframe to compete with European rival Airbus. The new engines are positioned close

r to the fuselage, changing the aircraft’s aerodynamics and pushing the nose up in certain conditions.

Boeing created MCAS to make the new Max planes handle more like previ

ous versions of the 737, a popular model used by airlines around the world. Some in the aircra

ft industry, including pilots, have said Boeing did not provide adequate notice of the new plane’s flight ch

aracteristics or how to shut off the new anti-stall device if necessary. A group of pilots in

dependently compiled and circulated a 13-page manual about the new system. Oth

ers have said Boeing provided adequate notice of the changes and how to disable MCAS.

The version of MCAS installed on the Ethiopian Airlines pl

ane had relied on information from one sensor that sent back bad information.

How the Wagah border post became a symbol of India

  Military tensions in the disputed region of Kashmir have erupted in recent

weeks, with India and Pakistan painting different versions of events.

  One thing we do know for certain is that an Indian pilot, identified as Wing Commander Abhinandan, was captured by Pakistan aft

er his plane was shot down in a dogfight earlier this week between Pakistani and Indian warplanes over the ceasefire line in Kashmir.

  He was due to be handed back to India on Friday afternoon, at a famous border post in the village of Wagah.

  While Indian-controlled Kashmir and Pakistani-controlled Kashmir are separate

d by a 435-mile de facto border known as the Line of Control (LoC), Wagah village sits on the international fron

tier to the south between the Pakistani city of Lahore and the Indian city of Amritsar.

  Wagah straddles the border — with the eastern half in India and the western half in Paki

stan — and sits on the Grand Trunk Road, one of the main overland routes between the two nations.

  Pakistani rangers (L) and Indian security forces (R) perform the daily Beating Retreat ceremony at Wagah in August 2017.

  The border post has taken on a symbolic role in the decades-long conflict over Kashmir, despite be

ing outside the disputed region, thanks to a daily military parade known as the Beating Retreat ceremony.

  Every evening there for 60 years, Pakistan’s Rangers and India’s Border Securit

y Force have taken part in a lowering-of-the-flags ceremony before sunset, typically around 4 p.m. local time.
