Boeing CEO apologises to crash victims' families

The boss of Boeing gives his first interview since the two 737 Max aircraft crashes

The boss of Boeing gives his first interview since the two 737 Max aircraft crashes, and insists the company is 'committed to safety for the long run'. We get reaction from aviation analyst John Strickland. Chris Low, chief economist at FTN Financial in New York, brings us up to date on the US-China tariffs dispute as China threatens to cut off exports of rare-earth metals. And as Canada arranges for 69 containers of its own household waste to be returned from the Philippines, we discuss whether developed countries should be sending their waste overseas for recycling.
Fergus Nicoll is joined throughout the programme by political reporter Erin Delmore from New York, and Professor Jasper Kim, founder and CEO of the Asia-Pacific Global Research Group in Seoul.
