    Agency to boost aviation experts on accident investigation

    The agency is poised to boost aviation experts in accident investigation

    The Banju Group Accord Accident Investigation Agency (BAGAIA) held a workshop in Abuja on Monday aimed at enhancing the knowledge of aviation experts on accident investigation.

    BAGAIA Commissioner Charles Erhueh said the workshop was to further deepen participants' understanding of security and investigative processes.

    “It will further expand the role of interested parties during the investigation in terms of the State Security Program.

    “In addition, this will allow us to understand the benefits of using drones in accident investigations, while looking beyond flight recorders.

    "Keep in mind that once an accident occurs and the scene becomes contaminated, you should not be there, your actions in most cases derail the investigative process," he said.

    Erhueh said the massive crowd was seen many times at the crash site looting and taking things from the scene, all under the guise of helping.

    According to him, the guest speakers will talk about partnering with the right stakeholders such as the airport authority, military, police, national civil defence, construction companies and emergency management agencies.

    “Also, how to engage with the communities where the accident occurred to inform them about their role, which is the most critical if we want to get good results.

    “These issues and many more are going to be key to what we do and I hope we take some time to assimilate everything and soak up what we have learned professionally in the performance of our duties.

    “BAGAIA as an organization, when invited to carry out any investigation, also needs the cooperation of the state of occurrence for things related to the accident or the place of the incident, since sometimes the communication channels are slow.

    He said that slow communication sometimes affected the speed at which the investigation began.

    Mr. Akin Olateru, Commissioner, Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB), Nigeria, said the theme of the workshop was "The role of accident/incident investigation in the State Safety Program (SSP) and the workshop of the flight recorder".

    Olateru, who was represented by the Director of Engineering, Mr. Muhammed Hashim, said that the content of the workshop would improve the safety aspect of the aviation industry.

    He said Nigeria's airspace has been one of the safest in the world for the past six years.

    According to him, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) does the regulation, while AIB-N does the research.

    “When you talk about flight recorders, Nigeria has one of the best laboratories in the world. We recently helped Cameroon recover information from the damaged recorder, something that has never been done in Africa before.

    “However, Nigeria was not the country where the accident occurred, but Cameroon; downloading and analysis was done in Nigeria and came to Nigeria thanks to our experience,” he said.

    Olateru said that AIB-N did not collect any money for attendance in accordance with AIB's global rules and regulations.

    Thailand’s Bangkok issues warning for heavy rain

    The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) on Tuesday issued a warning of moderate to heavy rain and potential floods from 4.00 p.

    m. to 11.00 p.

    m. local time in the Thai capital’s 12 districts.

    This came after several parts of the city had been inundated following heavy monsoon rains in the last several days.

    The main reason for the flooding is more rainfall than usual in and around Bangkok this year.

    This has swollen rivers and caused flooding in the city, Bangkok Governor, Chadchart Sittipunt, said on Monday at a briefing on the city’s flood situation.

    This year has been the wettest in recent years, but the overall situation in Bangkok is improving, Chadchart added.

    According to the Royal Irrigation Department, the average daily rainfall in Bangkok during the first 10 days of September was 96.5 mm, compared to an average of 52.2 mm in the same period last year.

    On Sept. 10, the 24-hour rainfall was 112.7 mm, the highest record in six years.

    Currently, the BMA is prepared to deal with the possible flash floods with dredging 32 waterways and upgrading drainage stations.

    The authorities will take a series of emergency response measures in case of extensive flooding, including setting up temporary shelters and arranging relief supplies.

    Modi commissions India’s first home-built aircraft carrier in defence push

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi commissioned India’s first home-built aircraft carrier on Friday, underlining his government’s efforts to boost domestic production to supply a military deployed on two contentious borders.

    After 17 years of construction and tests, Modi commissioned the INS Vikrant – the navy’s second operational aircraft carrier and the largest warship ever built in India – at a state-run shipyard in the south.

    “Today, India has joined those countries in the world, which can manufacture such a huge aircraft carrier with indigenous technology,’’ Modi said.

    “It is a symbol of indigenous potential, indigenous resources and indigenous skills.

    ’’ Designed to accommodate a crew of about 1,600 and a fleet of 30 aircraft, the Vikrant will rely on Russian-designed MIG-29K aircraft that already operate from India’s other carrier, the INS Vikramaditya, which India bought from Russia.

    Boeing and France’s Dassault are seeking to provide India with more than two dozen jets for the Vikrant.

    India is one of the world’s largest arms importers, spending $12.4 billion between 2018 and 2021. But it has been seeking to develop its own manufacturing capabilities as key supplier Russia fights a war in Ukraine and faces sanctions.

    India has identified some 8,000 imported defence items worth about 82 trillion rupees ($1.03 trillion) in 2022-23 that it wants its firms to make, according to the defence ministry.

    India employs 1.38 million people in its armed forces, with large numbers deployed on borders with nuclear-armed rivals China and Pakistan.

    “India is working with all its might to become self-reliant,’’ Modi said, referring to the home-built Tejas light-combat aircraft and artillery.

    The Vikrant will significantly add to India’s maritime capabilities, allowing the navy to operate an aircraft carrier on each seaboard, alongside its 10 destroyers, 12 frigates and 20 corvettes.

    China, which also has two operational carriers and is working on a third, has a much larger fleet of 335 vessels, including about 48 destroyers, 43 frigates and 61 corvettes.

    “Security concerns in the Indo-Pacific region and the Indian Ocean have long been ignored,’’ Modi said.

    “But today, this area is a major defence priority for our country.

    7 die as tribal violence flares again in Sudan’s Blue Nile

    Seven people were killed and 23 injured as tribal violence flared in Sudan’s southern Blue Nile state, the state’s security committee said, just weeks after major clashes.

    In mid-July, at least 105 people were killed and thousands displaced in fighting over land between the Hausa and Funj tribes as unrest spread to other states.

    The committee said the cause of the latest violence was still under investigation and did not specify which tribes were involved in the clashes in two parts of the state.

    In an overnight statement, it announced a curfew in two major cities and banned unnecessary gatherings.

    Funj-Hausa tensions boiled over in July following accusations from the Funj, who have long inhabited Blue Nile state, that the Hausa, who inhabit farming areas across the country, were trying to lay claim to parts of their land.

    There has also been sporadic violence in eastern coastal regions and western Darfur despite a nationwide peace deal signed by some rebel groups in Juba in 2020. Protesters have accused Sudan’s military rulers of failing to protect civilians and stoking tribal conflict.

    Military leaders, who seized power in October 2021, saying they wanted to preserve the country’s stability, said they were working to shore up the peace deal and improve security.

    German dependence on China growing ‘at tremendous pace’, research shows

    The German economy became more dependent on China in the first half of 2022, with direct investment and its trade deficit reaching new heights.

    This is despite political pressure on Berlin to pivot away from Beijing, according to research seen by Reuters.

    At the same time, growth in German exports to China weakened significantly, the German Economic Institute (IW) said in its study, citing economists pointing to a trend towards more local production in the Chinese market.

    “The German economy is much more dependent on China than the other way round,’’ said Juergen Matthes, who authored the study.

    He warned that this dependence posed a political problem as Beijing’s stance on the Ukraine war and its military posture towards Taiwan placed German business with the world’s second-largest economy under scrutiny.

    “Yet despite these dangers and problems, economic interdependencies with China have been moving in the wrong direction at a tremendous pace in the first half of 2022,’’ the economist said.

    The study found that German investment in China amounted to around 10 billion euros ($10 billion) between January and June, far exceeding the previous peak half-year value recorded since the turn of the millennium of 6.2 billion euros.

    “The Chinese sales market and the profits beckoning there in the short term simply seem too attractive,’’ Matthes said.

    China’s share of German imports rose to 12.4 per cent in the first half of 2022, compared with 3.4 per cent in 2000. On the other hand, German imports of Chinese goods surged in value terms by 45.7 per cent year-on-year during that six-month period, the IW found.

    Germany’s trade deficit with the country had leapt to almost 41 billion euros by mid-2022, the institute said, adding that the gap was set to widen further.

    The IW called for a policy turnaround, urging a reduction in incentives for doing business with China and a shift towards more trade with other emerging markets, particularly in Asia. Matthes also called on German businesses to curb their dependency on China, warning that any Western sanctions against Beijing, for example if it invaded Taiwan, would threaten particularly exposed companies with bankruptcy.

    “We otherwise risk running into a ‘too big to fail’ situation as we saw with the banks,’’ he said.

    Nearly half the people in Ethiopia’s Tigray need food aid – WFP

    The nearly two-year conflict in Ethiopia has left almost half the population of the Tigray region without adequate food.

    This is as aid groups struggle to reach rural areas because of insufficient fuel supplies, the World Food Programme (WFP) said on Friday.

    Even though the delivery of aid resumed after the federal government declared a unilateral ceasefire in March, malnutrition rates have “skyrocketed” and are expected to worsen, the United Nations agency said in an assessment.

    Services such as banking and telecommunications were cut in Tigray, home to around 5.5 million people, days after the national army and allied forces pulled out a year ago.

    They are yet to be restored, hampering the ability of people to buy food, the WFP said.

    “Hunger has deepened, rates of malnutrition have skyrocketed and the situation is set to worsen as people enter peak hunger season until this year’s harvest in October,’’ the report said.

    Half of the pregnant or lactating women in Tigray are malnourished as well as a third of children under five, leading to stunting and maternal death, the report found.

    Across Tigray and the neighbouring regions of Afar and Amhara, also affected by the war, an estimated 13 million people need food aid, a 44 per cent increase from the previous WFP report released in January.

    The United Nations said that since April 1, only 1,750,000 litres of fuel had entered Tigray, less than 20 per cent of the monthly humanitarian needs in the region, if all supplies were in.

    Legesse Tulu, the government spokesperson, did not immediately respond to requests by Reuters for comment on the insufficient delivery of fuel.

    Hopes for imminent peace talks between Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the party that controls Tigray, are fading.

    Both parties accuse each other of not wanting to come to the table.

    The government said earlier this month it wants talks “with no preconditions”, while Tigray’s government has called for the restoration of services to civilians first.

    The fighting has displaced millions of people, pushed parts of Tigray into famine conditions and killed thousands of civilians.

    The World Health Organisation’s Director-General, Tedros Ghebreyesus, who is from Tigray, suggested this week that racism was behind a lack of international attention being paid to the plight of civilians in the region.
