Abiy MUST suggest that Boeing be re-classifed as a Global Public Utility that is TOO BIG to Fail.

China is just as responsible for Boeing's debacle. Contrary to the structure of APQP, it is China that arm twisted Boeing into outsourcing design. If you were wondering why China was only second to Ethiopia in deciding to ground the planes, it is because they know the issue more than Seattle does.

Process too, namely the sintered powder metal that is then zapped into a magnet is a China occupied territory. The magnet drives all the hall effect sensors that transmit the signals form the joystic to controler box, out to valve and then into the flaps. Signal is read both ways, through independent or stacked sensors which makes the system prone to shifts in polarity and actions in a reverse manner where up could become down, and accelerate becomes deccel.

Either way Boeing Enginners are now in a bind between doing the right thing, and balancing it with the financial and legal ramifications of their permanent corrective actions; and more likely than not, China is deeply imbeded in it.

As Meles has done in the past, Abiy should provide the necessary global leadership in suggesting an ownership re-aligment to an OEM that cant possibly survive as an independent OEM. What does the world have to loose in making Abiy make the suggestion. If the world likes it, it impliments it; if not it will rebuff the suggestion as one coming from an insignificant nation. Case closed!

IMF Africa should also start forming an opinion....every day EALs planes stay grounded as a result of errors that eminate from its primary stakeholders (China and US),
an effect that will soon reverberate at Ethiopia's National Bank that is highly leveraged on EAL; leadership will soon be required in suggesting a new OEM restructuring and alleviating the strain of the leveraged and left under insured.

It just simply is not a world where Boeing can meet all its obligations alone. To accomodate the undue stress, they are forced into taking short cuts , and as such affecting countries that are depending on the industry.
