Phoebe Wall Howard Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 p.m. UTC Aug 8, 2018 Ford is hoping to better compete in the largest auto market in the world by unveiling a new midsize sport utility vehicle designed for China that targets shoppers wanting more vehicle space for less money. The SUV, called Territory, "is a very important product for us — for investors, for stakeholders, for employees, for dealers," Jim Farley, Ford vice president and president of global markets, said in an interview with the Free Press. "This is Ford competing in lower price points than we have in the past. And this is a completely indigenous product. It is not derived from a Ford product elsewhere.

Hernández July 30, 2018 BEIJING — More than two dozen Chinese parents, shouting phrases including “Justice for the victims,” gathered outside a government building in Beijing on Monday to protest a vaccine scandal that has become one of the most visible public health crises in China in recent years. The protest followed reports this month that hundreds of thousands of children across China had been injected with faulty vaccines for diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough. While the children appear to be unharmed, the episode undermined President Xi Jinping’s vision of a newly resilient China and his vow to eliminate corruption and abuse in the nation’s food and drug industries. The protesters, standing outside the offices of the National Health … [Read more...] about Faulty Vaccine Scandal Fuels Rare Public Outburst in China
