China is selling its first ever batch of crude oil from its strategic petroleum reserve tomorrow (Sep. 24). This is the “coming of age of China’s [strategic petroleum reserve],” said Michal Meidan, director of the China energy program at the Oxford Institute of Energy Studies in London. “What’s happening on Friday is a test, the first test, of China’s SPR mechanisms…China has never done an SPR release before.”
President Biden met last week with business leaders to inspire others to require their employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The mandate would potentially affect 80 million private-sector workers. While the $14,000 penalty for companies that don’t comply, along with the requirement to provide paid time off for employees to get vaccinated or tested regularly, place a burden on companies, few so far have refused to participate.

TURIN (Reuters) -Stellantis Chairman John Elkann said on Wednesday an investment in a historical production plant in Italy showed manufacturing in the country remained key to the carmaker, in response to criticism that it was losing its importance after the merger between Fiat Chrysler and PSA that created the group. Elkann said Stellantis had invested 2 billion euros ($2.35 billion) in Turin to produce full-electric cars - including the battery-electric (BEV) Fiat 500 - and hybrid ones along with innovative projects, such as smart-grid recharging infrastructure. Group executives presented a red-coloured version of its 500 electric model to be produced in the Turin site, in partnership with RED, the charity group co-founded by U2 frontman Bono.

A chef who offers health benefits, paid vacation, and a 401(k) plan raised base pay to $18 to $24 per hour and said he's not struggling to hire workers
"The pandemic gave me an opportunity to start with a blank slate and say, let's rebuild the model and the way we've always done things," he said.
DETROIT (Reuters) -General Motors Co's president said on Tuesday the global supply of semiconductor chips will begin to stabilize but at lower levels than the auto industry wants as it tries to rebuild vehicle inventories. "We're going to see a stablization to some extent before we see getting the volume we really need," Mark Reuss said at a conference hosted by the Detroit Regional Chamber on Mackinac Island in northern Michigan. The global chip shortage has caused GM and automakers globally to idle production at plants, with some executives warning the issue could linger into 2023.

China should abandon a top-level strategy promoted by President Xi Jinping to increase self-reliance, or risk harming innovation and growth prospects, said a European business group on Thursday. "There are troubling signs that China is increasingly turning inwards ... and this tendency is casting considerable doubts over the country's future growth trajectory," the report from the European Chamber of Commerce said.
