Cathay Pacific CEO resigns after Beijing pressure

Aug 18, 2019

HONG KONG — The CEO of Cathay Pacific Airways, one of Hong Kong's most prominent companies, resigned Friday following pressure by Beijing on the carrier over participation by some of its employees in anti-government protests.

Cathay Pacific said a pilot who was charged with...

Aug 18, 2019

BEIJING — Global stock markets were mostly lower Thursday after Wall Street fell on mounting fears of a possible recession. Benchmarks in London, Tokyo and Sydney declined while Shanghai closed higher after spending most of the day in negative territory. Frankfurt was unchanged. U.S. investors dumped stocks Wednesday, sending the Dow Jones Industrial Average into its biggest one-day drop of the year, after the yield on 10-year Treasury bonds crossed a threshold that has correctly predicted many past recessions. That erased the previous day's gains from a rally that began after President Donald Trump delayed tariffs on about $160 billion...
