OIC condemns terrorist attacks in Somalia, Mali

Mon, 2020-07-06 00:40 JEDDAH: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) general secretariat strongly condemned a suicide attack in Mogadishu and a terrorist bombing in Baidoa in Somalia that resulted in deaths and injuries, the Saudi Press Agency reported. The secretariat also condemned a terrorist attack that targeted villages in Mali that killed civilians and military personnel, while also wounding others. The secretariat offered its sincere condolences to the families of the victims, the government and the people of Somalia, wishing a speedy recovery to the injured. It reiterated its strong condemnation and rejection of violence and terrorism in all its forms, affirming that the OIC stood with Somalia in the fight against terrorism and extremism. The secretariat also condemned a terrorist attack that targeted villages in Mali that killed civilians and military personnel, while also wounding others. At least seven people were wounded on Saturday when a suicide car bomber tried to strike a police post in front of the port in Mogadishu. Security forces shot the suicide bomber and the vehicle exploded, police said. In the outskirts of Baidoa, four people were killed when land mine detonated in a restaurant. Ali Abdullahi, an official with the Southwestern regional state, told The Associated Press that the mine was detonated by remote control as people were dining during the morning rush. Several others were wounded, he said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabab group has targeted the city in the past In Mali, armed men massacred 31 civilians in simultaneous attacks on several villages last week, then killed nine soldiers responding to the assault as violence surges in the country’s conflict-wracked center. An Islamist insurgency that erupted in the north of the vast West African country in 2012 has swept to its center, inflaming ethnic tensions along the way. Clashes between the ethnic communities of Fulani, nomadic herders, and Dogon traditional hunters have increased in recent months, with community-based militias — initially formed for defense — now launching attacks.

$800bn plan to turn Riyadh into cultural hub for the Middle East

Mon, 2020-07-06 00:57 DUBAI: Saudi Arabia is launching a SR3 trillion ($800 billion) plan to double the size of Riyadh in the next decade and transform it into an economic, social and cultural hub for the region. The ambitious strategy for the capital city was unveiled by Fahd Al-Rasheed, president of the Royal Commission for the City of Riyadh, ahead of key meetings of the U20, the arm of the G20 leaders’ summit that deals with urban development and strategy. “Riyadh is already a very important economic engine for the Kingdom, and although it’s already very successful, the plan now, under Vision 2030, is to actually take that way further, to double the population to 15 million people,” he told Arab News. “We’ve already launched 18 megaprojects in the city, worth over SR1 trillion, over $250 billion, to both improve livability and deliver much higher economic growth so we can create jobs and double the population in 10 years. It’s a significant plan and the whole city is working to make sure this happens.” About $250 billion in investment is expected from the private sector, with the same amount generated by increased economic activity from population growth, finance and banking, cultural and desert tourism, and leisure events. HIGHLIGHTS 18 megaprojects have already been launched worth over $250 billion. 7 million trees planted in Riyadh in the next few years. King Salman Park will be bigger than Hyde Park in London. “We must also ensure the growth is managed properly, so there will be a focus on transport and logistics, including the Riyadh metro which will open at the beginning of next year. The aim is to increase productivity,” Al-Rasheed said. The plan involves the creation of a “mega industrial zone” focusing on advanced technology such as renewables and automation, and biotechnology and aquaponics. Another key feature is sustainability, with energy conservation, the circular carbon economy with its emphasis on reducing emissions, and water management, all priorities. “You will see 7 million trees planted in Riyadh in the next few years, and King Salman Park will be bigger than Hyde Park in London,” Al-Rasheed said. The city also aims to be a Middle East artistic and cultural hub. An opera house is being considered, as well as public art shows with 1,000 works commissioned from around the world. “We have not seen anything like it since Renaissance Florence,” Al-Rasheed said. The plans will be discussed this week during online meetings of the U20 linking Riyadh with Houston. The Texas oil capital is suffering a new spike in coronavirus cases and pandemics will be on the agenda. “We want to deal with this one, but also be ready for the next one,” Al-Rasheed said.

‘K반도체’ 쾌거…대만 꺾고 SSD 수출 세계 1위

한국이 올해 1분기 SSD(솔리드 스테이트 드라이브) 수출을 가장 많이 한 국가가 됐다. 지난해까지 전 세계 SSD 수출의 20% 이상을 차지하던 대만을 제치고 처음으로 1위 자리에 오른 것이다. SSD는 메모리 반도체 기반의 차세대 저장장치로 구글, 아마존 같은 데이터센터 업체들의 서버뿐만 아니라 노트북, 콘솔 게임기 등 소비자용 제품에도 두루 쓰인다. 반도체를 이용해 생산되지만 제품 특성상 SSD는 ‘컴퓨터 부속장치’로 분류된다. 업계에선 SSD 시장이 열린 2006년부터 줄곧 세계 1위 자리에 오른 삼성전자를 필두로 한 ‘코리아 반도체’의 쾌거라는 평가도 나온다. 6일 세계무역기구(WTO) 산하 국제무역센터(ITC)에 따르면 올 1분기 한국의 SSD 수출액은 23억7497만달러로(약 2조8526억원)로 20억3656만달러를 기록한 대만을 넘어선 것으로 집계됐다. ITC가 WTO 회원국의 무역 통계 기반으로 SSD 수출 내역을 공개하기 시작한 2007년 1분기 이후 지금까지 한국이 분기 수출액

“구충제 다음은 줄기세포”… 대웅제약, ‘줄기세포 코로나19 치료제’ 임상 1상 개시

대웅제약이 국내 제약업체 최초로 줄기세포를 이용한 신종 코로나바이러스감염증(코로나19) 치료제 개발을 본격화했다. 국내에서 구충제 성분 ‘니클로사마이드’를 이용한 코로나19 치료제(DWRX2003) 개발이 임상 승인을 앞두고 있는 상황에서 이와 병행해 해외에서는 줄기세포를 활용한 코로나19 치료제 임상 1상을 개시한 것이다. 최근 홍남기 경제부총리 겸 기획재정부 장관이 3차 추경과 관련해 국내 바이오산업 발전을 위해 줄기세포 관련 허브 클러스터 조성을 추진하겠다고 발표한 가운데 줄기세포를 활용한 코로나19 치료제 개발이 임상 단계에 진입해 많은 관심을 모은다. 대웅제약은 중간엽줄기세포를 이용한 코로나19 호흡기 증상 치료제(DWP710)가 인도네시아에서 지난 2일 임상 1상을 승인 받고 본격적으로 임상에 들어갔다고 6일 밝혔다. 임상 1상 시험에서 약물 안정성을 확인하고 올해 안에 2상에 진입할 계획이다. 특히 인도네시아에서 임상 1상을 완료한 후 한국에서는 바로 임상 2상을 진행한다는 목표다. 대

“글로벌 케미컬 시장 공략 시동”… 셀트리온제약, HIV 치료제 ‘CT-G7’ 조달물량 출하

셀트리온제약은 6일 글로벌 조달시장에 공급하는 인간면역결핍바이러스(HIV) 치료제 ‘CT-G7’이 본격적으로 출하에 착수했다고 밝혔다. CT-G7은 셀트리온이 자체 개발한 HIV 치료제로 시장에서 선호도가 높은 3개 성분으로 구성된 개량신약이다. 지난 4월 미국 식품의약국(FDA)으로부터 잠정 승인(Tentative Approval)을 획득하고 글로벌 조달시장 진출을 위해 다수 국제조달기구와 협의를 진행해왔다. 이를 통해 셀트리온은 최근 글로벌 조달기관들과 1600만 달러(약 192억 원) 규모 공급계약을 성사시켰고 올해 하반기 추가 계약을 통해 올해 총 3600만 달러(약 431억 원) 규모 공급계약을 체결한다는 목표다. 특히 그룹 내 케미컬의약품 생산을 담당하는 셀트리온제약은 지난 3월 CT-G7 생산시설에 대한 FDA 실사를 무결점으로 통과했다. 최근 연구 및 생산 인력을 대폭 충원해 CT-G7 글로벌 조달시장 공급 일정에 맞춰 조달 물량 양산과 출하를 진행하고 있다. 이번에 공급하는 제품은 셀
