    A United Nations index of global food prices rose for the 12th consecutive
    month, its longest stretch in more than a decade. Since the pandemic began, a
    drought in Brazil has hit coffee and maize production. Output of vegetable oil
    in South-East Asia has also stagnated. Meanwhile, soaring meat consumption as
    China’s economy rapidly recovers has increased its demand for grain imports.

    NASA announced two new missions to study Venus, Earth’s closest planetary
    neighbour. America’s space agency said it was awarding around $1bn to develop
    the launches which would take place between 2028 and 2030. One will measure the
    composition of the Venusian atmosphere. The other would map the planet’s surface
    (which is hot enough to melt lead) to establish why it developed so differently
    from Earth’s.

    America responded to the imposition of digital-service taxes on its tech firms
    by levying tariffs on Austria, Britain, India, Italy, Spain and Turkey. That may
    have been more of a negotiating tactic than a genuine threat—Katherine Tai,
    America’s trade representative, said the tariffs would be suspended for six
    months to allow for multilateral discussions of tax arrangements.

    Thursday, June 3 (Tokyo time)
    6:00 p.m. Hong Kong's Department of Health has approved a government advisory
    panel's suggestion to lower the minimum age for the BioNTech vaccine from 16 to
    12, citing phase-three clinical data. As of Thursday, about 14% of Hong Kong's
    population is fully vaccinated.
    5:00 p.m. Indonesia has canceled the hajj pilgrimage for people in the world's
    largest Muslim-majority nation for a second year in a row due to concerns over
    the pandemic, the religious affairs minister says. For many Indonesians, the
    religious pilgrimage is a once-in-a-lifetime event, with the average wait time
    20 years due to a quota system.
    "Due to the pandemic and for the safety of the pilgrims, the government has
    decided that this year it won't allow Indonesian pilgrims to go again," the
    minister said, adding Saudi Arabia had not opened access for the hajj.
    4:00 p.m. Taiwan reports 583 domestic infections, including 219 cases added to
    recent days' totals as it reflects delays in reporting positive tests. The
    figure was an increase from 549 reported on Wednesday.
    3:55 p.m. While Vietnamese Health Minister Nguyen Thanh Long shocked the world
    on Saturday by hinting that a newly discovered variant could have contributed to
    outbreaks within the country, Kidong Park, the WHO representative in Vietnam,
    told Nikkei Asia on Wednesday, "There is no new hybrid variant in Vietnam at
    this moment based on WHO definition."
    Long had said the government uncovered "a new COVID-19 variant" that combines
    characteristics of two existing variants first found in India and the U.K.
    1:50 p.m. India reports 134,154 cases in the last 24 hours, the seventh straight
    day with fewer than 200,000 infections, pushing the country's total to 28.44
    million. Deaths rose by 2,887 to 337,989. Meanwhile, the health ministry says it
    has finalized a deal with domestic vaccine maker Biological-E and ordered 300
    million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine, which is currently in Phase 3 clinical
    trials. "These vaccine doses will be manufactured and stockpiled by Biological-E
    from August to December 2021," the ministry said in a statement, adding an
    advance payment of 15 billion rupees ($205 million) will be made.
    11:10 a.m. Seiko Hashimoto, president of the Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee,

    The World Health Organisation approved Sinovac Biotech’s covid-19 vaccine for
    emergency use. It recommends that CoronaVac, the Chinese-produced vaccine, be
    given to people aged 18 and over, with a second dose two to four weeks later.
    Over 430m doses of the vaccine have already been administered. WHO approval will
    allow it to be included in COVAX, the global vaccine-sharing scheme.
    Joe Biden visited Tulsa, Oklahoma, where hundreds of African-Americans were
    massacred by a white mob in 1921. At least 35 blocks of black-owned
    buildings—houses, businesses, a hospital and a school—were burned down. “For
    much too long, the history of what took place here was told in silence, cloaked
    in darkness,” said the president. “My fellow Americans, this was not a riot,
    this was a massacre.
    Pope Francis made the most extensive changes to the Roman Catholic Church’s
    penal code in four decades. The sweeping reforms widened church law to
    criminalise the grooming of minors and broadened the definition of sexual abuse
    to include the exploitation of adults. Despite formally allowing women to
    administer communion and serve at the altar earlier this year, the Pope affirmed
    that they cannot be ordained.
    Canada’s economy continued to recover from the pandemic, with its GDP growing by
    5.6% at an annual rate in the quarter ending in March. That was slightly below
    forecasts made by economists, but still healthy. The rise was buoyed by an
    increase in housing spending. Economic activity may slow in this quarter because
    of new lockdowns following a covid-19 wave.
    House prices in Britain rose by 11% over the past year, the fastest increase
    since 2014, according to Nationwide, a building society. Buyers seeking larger
    properties and a temporary suspension of property-transaction taxes have fuelled
    demand. Lower interest rates have also turbocharged the market, as in America,
    where the Case-Shiller national house-price index is rising at an annual rate of
    13%.
    Katumba Wamala, Uganda’s former army chief and the current minister of
    transport, survived an assasination attempt. Four attackers on motorcycles shot
    at his car in Kampala, the capital. Mr Wamala was wounded in both shoulders; his
    daughter and driver were killed. Such incidents have become common in recent
    years in Uganda, where several prominent figures have been gunned down.

    Wednesday, June 2 (Tokyo time)
    3:34 p.m. Malaysia reports 7,703 new cases, bringing its total number of
    infections to 587,165. Malaysia is experiencing a corona surge, though cases
    have dipped since hitting a record on Saturday.
    3:08 p.m. Taiwan reports 549 COVID-19 cases, including 177 added to the totals
    for recent days as it continues to readjust its infection numbers following
    delays in reporting positive tests. The total is up from 327 on Tuesday.
    3:02 p.m. Swiss contract drug maker Lonza says that a new production line in the
    Netherlands will produce ingredients for Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine, part of the
    U.S. pharmaceutical's plan to significantly lift output. The line in Geleen will
    have the annual capacity to make ingredients for up to 300 million doses at 50
    micrograms per dose, Lonza says. That is half the 100-microgram dose that
    Moderna has been delivering to date. Moderna and scientists at the National
    Institutes of Health have been trying to determine whether doses of the
    company's COVID-19 vaccine can be halved to double the supply.
    1:16 p.m. India reports a daily rise in new coronavirus infections of 132,788
    over the past 24 hou

    逐字稿:

    Chinese parents will soon be allowed to have a third child (see main stories).
    The move was one of a range of measures introduced by the Communist Party’s
    Politburo to manage the rapid ageing of China’s population. The party’s
    leadership also agreed to raise the retirement age and to improve pensions and
    health care for the elderly.
    The World Health Organisation will use the Greek alphabet to refer to variants
    of SARS-CoV-2. “Variants of concern” first detected in Britain (B.1.1.7), South
    Africa (B.1.351), Brazil (P.1) and India (B.1.617.2) will be labelled Alpha,
    Beta, Gamma and Delta following the order in which they were first reported. The
    WHO hopes the system will lessen the stigma on countries detecting new strains.
    Peru changed the way it calculates covid-19 deaths. In the process its official
    mortality rate from the disease became the world’s highest, nearly tripling to
    500 per 100,000 people. A lack of testing meant the disease had been
    dramatically undercounted in the country. The new figures are in line with its
    excess-death rate—an often more robust measurement which is rarely incorporated
    into official covid statistics.
    The OECD revised up its forecast for world economic growth this year from 4.2%
    to 5.8%. Expansion of 4.4% next year will bring GDP in most places back to
    pre-pandemic levels by the end of 2022. The club of mostly rich countries
    advised governments to switch their efforts from emergency-stimulus schemes
    towards long-term investment programmes.
    Annual inflation in Germany reached 2.4% in May. Up from 2.1% in April, the
    figure was much higher than economists had forecast. The country’s central bank
    predicts that inflation “could temporarily reach 4%” at the end of the year, the
    highest level the country has seen since it adopted the euro in 2002.
    The yuan fell against other currencies after China’s central bank forced banks
    to hold a greater share of their foreign exchange in reserve. The increase, from
    5% to 7%, in effect reduces the supply of dollars and other currencies in the
    country. The move is intended to rein in the yuan’s surging value, caused by a
    strong post-lockdown economic recovery.
    At least 50 people were killed in two attacks in Ituri province in the east of
    the Democratic Republic of Congo. Local officials blamed ADF, a Ugandan Islamist
    group with ties to ISIS that has been terrorising the region. In a bid to
    restore peace in early May President Felix Tshisekedi placed Ituri and the
    neighbouring province of North Kivu under martial law.


    日經亞洲:https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Tech/Semiconductors/TSMC-s-Japan-project-attracts-over-20-participant-companies
    TOKYO -- The Japanese government on Monday was set to finalize a plan in which
    it has enlisted Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. to develop cutting-edge
    chipmaking technologies in Japan.
    The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has been concerned about the
    Japanese semiconductor industry's declining position in the global market, which
    led it to seek TSMC's cooperation.
    TSMC, the world's biggest contract chipmaker, intends to bear around half the
    project's cost of about 37 billion yen ($337 million). Over 20 Japanese
    companies -- including Ibiden, which is strong in chip packaging -- will
    participate.
    The Japanese government -- which intends to establish a joint public-private
    sector concern to cooperate with TSMC -- expects the effort to pay off with
    improved international competitiveness for Japanese industry.
    Construction of a trial facility will begin this summer at the earliest at the
    National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, in Tsukuba,
