even though regulators ordered it to stop flying more than $400.00 planes a currently being kept in storage nearly $350.00 people were killed in crashes in indonesia and ethiopia which led to the jets being grounded in march. for more on this i'm joined by d.w. business reporter clifford cannot keep it why is boeing doing this right now basically the federal aviation authorities have said in the us that they're not going to allow the 737 max to take off again. boeing had been hoping that they would get permission sooner than rather than later so they had a board meeting in seattle and they just decided that it was time for to say that it was. to stop production which is the 1st time in 2 decades that this is what does this mean for supply as an for employees well it's caused quite a significant meaning for suppliers in particular because the $600.00 companies in

the supply chain involved in supplying implement instruments and all other components for the 737 max so it will it will have some kind of trickle down effect boeing has played down the impact of which it said it will be letting anyone go over this. there's going to be a lot of concerns because boeing is such a huge company that it's actually been a drag on the u.s. economy all of this uncertainty about the 737 max because this was their most popular plane it was technologically their most advanced plane it was something that they were very very proud of and it was a big seller so it will be in some way in an effort for them to to make clarity and to bring clarity into the situation so what does the timeline now for research education look like well this is it's an open question i think boeing had been hoping that it would happen in january there was some suggestion that it could happen in the early part of the year but it's still very open and there's still a lot of issues resolved. with the with the software there are
2:04 am
a lot of things that need to be sorted out you get the sense that boeing is trying to draw a line under this and saying that we need to we need clarity and we need to have we're going to create the great is they say they're going to create the greatest aircraft to ever to fly and you know that they're going to try to answer a lot of the outstanding questions they're going to stop all these battles regulators in different countries with airlines they've been fighting about a lot of fronts so i think what they're trying to do is draw a line under this and once they've resolved all those issues then they can start talking about certification again ok business reporter david gergen thanks for that . now let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world. a breakthrough in the trade war between the u.s. and china has propelled stocks on wall street to another record high investors are relieved that the prospect of an escalating conflict has receded it was the 3rd straight day of stock market gains. british prime minister boris johnson has

2:13 am
. super telescopes such as the extremely large telescope will then take a closer look at the earth like exoplanets in the coming decade they will look for traces of life in their atmospheres and find out for example whether there are microbes and plants there. but drove for the opening knockout round of the champions league has taken place and things will be getting serious for the bundesliga clubs in the competition by and have been drawn of london club chelsea all don't want a set to face paris sunshine man alive so they will square off with last year's finalists tottenham. byron munich's to mulch you a season isn't going to get any easier in february the german giants have been drawn against reigning europa league winners chelsea in the champions league round
