The European Union should first implement its already agreed 750 billion euro post-pandemic recovery scheme before thinking of expanding it, European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs Paolo Gentiloni said on Tuesday. Speaking at the International Monetary Fund's spring meetings, held virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gentiloni stressed the cash that is to be jointly borrowed and repaid by all EU countries, was not meant to be an emergency response to the health crisis. "This common money is for quality growth, it should be connected to green and digital transitions and reforms," Gentiloni said in a discussion with IMF head Kristalina Georgieva.

BERLIN — Johnson & Johnson said Tuesday it is delaying the rollout of its coronavirus vaccine in Europe amid a U.S. probe into reports of rare blood clots in some recipients. The announcement came after regulators in the United States said they were recommending a “pause” in administration of the single-dose shot to investigate reports of potentially dangerous blood clots. “We have been reviewing these cases with European health authorities,” Johnson & Johnson said. “We have made the decision to proactively delay the rollout of our vaccine in Europe.” The delay is a further blow to vaccination drives in the European Union, which have been plagued by supply shortages, logistical problems and concerns over unusual blood clots in a small number of people who received the AstraZeneca vaccine. The blood clot reports prompted several countries in the 27-nation bloc to limit the AstraZeneca vaccine to older age groups, which are more at risk from serious illness when infected with COVID-19. The Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca vaccines are made with the same technology. Many leading COVID-19 vaccines train the body to recognize the spike protein that coats the outer surface of the coronavirus. But the J&J and AstraZeneca vaccines use a cold virus, called an adenovirus, to carry the spike gene into the body. Johnson & Johnson uses a human adenovirus to create its vaccine, while AstraZeneca uses a chimpanzee version. The European Medicines Agency, the EU’s equivalent to the FDA, said last Friday that it was reviewing cases reported in the United States of blood clotting in people who had received the J&J vaccine, which was developed by the company's Janssen subsidiary. In a joint statement Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration said they were investigating unusual clots that occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination. The clots occurred in veins that drain blood from the brain and occurred together with low platelets. All six cases were in women between the ages of 18 and 48; there was one death. The Amsterdam-based EMA said following the U.S. announcement Tuesday it “is currently not clear whether there is a causal association between vaccination with COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen and these conditions.” The European agency's safety committee “is investigating these cases and will decide whether regulatory action may be necessary,” the EMA said. The EU ordered 200 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson in 2021. Britain ordered 30 million doses of the J& J vaccine, though U.K. regulators have not yet approved its use. France had expected to receive 200,000 doses of the vaccine this week and was planning to start administering them next week to people aged 55 and over. In total, the country had planned to receive about 8 million doses of the J&J vaccine by the end of June. In February, South Africa began vaccinating its health workers with the J&J vaccine in a research trial after abandoning plans to use the AstraZeneca shot when a preliminary study suggested the AstraZeneca vaccine was only minimally effective against the variant of COVID-19 that first arose in the country. South Africa planned to test the J&J shot in 500,000 health workers as part of the research, and as of Monday night, it had vaccinated 289,787. Last month, the African Union announced it had signed a deal to buy up to 400 million doses of the J&J vaccine. Johnson & Johnson also has a preliminary agreement to supply up to 500 million doses through 2022 to the U.N.-backed COVAX initiative, an effort to provide COVID-19 vaccines to the world's poor. The World Health Organization last month gave the green light to the J&J vaccine, saying its formulation “should facilitate vaccination logistics in all countries.” Any concerns about the J&J vaccine could be another unwelcome complication for COVAX and for the billions of people in developing countries depending on the program to get immunized. COVAX recently was hit by supply issues after its biggest supplier, the Serum Institute of India, announced it would delay exports of the AstraZeneca vaccine for several months due to a surge of cases in the subcontinent. European regulators on March 11 endorsed the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as the fourth authorized for use in the EU, saying the data on the product indicated it met the bloc's criteria for efficacy, safety and quality, but the first supplies were only now arriving. Italy expected to receive its first Johnson & Johnson deliveries this week. The Lazio region surrounding Rome planned to give the prison population the single jab, while the northern Veneto region, which includes Venice, planned to use it for home-bound adults over 80. “I am watching today’s news with concern, as a humanitarian actor. I am also watching with satisfaction, because the regulatory system is working,’’ Francesco Rocca, president of the International Federation of the Red Cross, told foreign reporters in Italy. “I imagine there will be repercussions, as we are waiting for millions of doses. But this means the controls are working. If we need to be prudent, we need to be prudent.” Officials in Germany, which was due to receive 232,800 doses of the vaccine this week and 10.1 million doses by the end of June, said earlier Tuesday that there were no immediate plans to change the schedule. “I don’t currently have the date from which Johnson & Johnson will be administered,” a Health Ministry spokesman, Hanno Kautz, told reporters in Berlin. “But in principle, we naturally always take such warnings in an international context seriously and investigate them.” Spain is expecting to receive 300,000 doses of J&J on Wednesday, the first delivery of the jab produced by Johnson & Johnson. Asked about the pause on Johnson & Johnson shots in the United States, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said the benefits of taking the vaccine remain greater than the risks but that he would have to learn more about the situation. “We have to all be aware that all the vaccines being administered to the Spanish population, and the European, as well as American populations, are safe,” Sánchez said. ___ Cheng reported from London.

Embedded intelligence, predictive analytics, and real-time user guidance improve strategic decision making, procurement efficiency, risk reduction and customer successRESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JAGGAER today announces the launch of its “Digital Mind” strategy to boost customer success in the adoption and use of its source-to-settle JAGGAER ONE platform. JAGGAER Digital Mind is a core set of advanced technologies that incorporates prescriptive and predictive analytics, machine learning, natural language processing and other innovative capabilities to deliver solutions and capabilities across the JAGGAER ONE platform. Collectively, these solutions will boost organizations’ return on investment (ROI) in the digital transformation of procurement. As part of the JAGGAER 21.1 release, the company has launched three unique solutions: JAGGAER Adopt, Assist, and Advise. Each leverages the capabilities of the JAGGAER Digital Mind to provide companies and their users with more insights, contextual guidance, decision support, and automation to improve adoption and use of the JAGGAER ONE platform. JAGGAER CEO Jim Bureau said, “Our company’s focus is 100% on customer success. We have developed the most advanced solution suite in procurement technology. We want to go beyond that to empower users on every step of their journey, by providing them with more intelligence on all aspects of their spending and delivering more strategic outcomes throughout their digital transformation. This is the promise behind Digital Mind.” JAGGAER Adopt increases the success and ROI of a procurement organization’s digital transformation by giving 360o visibility into user adoption, feature utilization, and compliance with company-defined processes, coupled with guided help, training, tips and tutorials to improve skills and increase user performance exactly where and when the user needs it. The solution also gives procurement management teams the tools they need to track user adoption, efficiency, effectiveness, and KPIs to understand usage levels, so that they can focus on refining and improving their systems and processes. “With this insight, our customers can better understand how their organizations are using JAGGAER every day and identify areas where users might need more training or guidance on company procurement processes and the capabilities available for users.

For this reason, many companies are relying more on ‘learning on demand’ and performance support to improve the efficiency of their users,” Holt said. “And this is precisely the thinking behind JAGGAER Assist, which uses natural, conversational language to answer users’ queries, provide guidance on next steps, find the data they need in real-time, or start a new task at the moment of need.” JAGGAER Advise enables users to be more proactive in recognizing areas of improvement and mitigating challenging situations such as supplier risk. “Leveraging a combination of advanced predictive analytics, machine learning, and customer-specific business rules, JAGGAER Advise enables procurement professionals to identify steps that could improve performance or results and take corrective action on behalf of users. The software provides data-driven actionable insights and recommends next steps to mitigate the risk of supply disruptions, supplier qualification and performance issues, and underperforming sourcing events,” said Amenallah Reghimi, VP Product Management, who has led the development of JAGGAER Adopt, Assist and Advise.

The victims went missing in 2014 when the marines were deployed near the US border, officials say.
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. consumer prices climbed in March by the most in nearly nine years as the end of pandemic lockdowns triggered a rebound in travel and commuting that pushed up the cost of gasoline, car rentals and hotel stays.The consumer price index increased 0.6% from the prior month after a 0.4% gain in February, according to Labor Department data Tuesday. The jump in the cost of gas accounted for almost half the overall March advance.Excluding volatile food and energy components, the so-called core CPI increased 0.3% from February, the most in seven months. Costs of both goods and services rose last month.The annual inflation figure surged to 2.6%, a figure that was distorted by a pandemic-related decline in prices in March 2020. That effect will begin to fade within several months, helping explain why Federal Reserve policy makers see current price pressures as temporary rather than something more dangerous to the economy.The core measure rose 1.6% from 12 months ago. Prior to the pandemic, the annual core inflation metric was running north of 2%.Investors shrugged off the price data -- stocks were mixed and bonds little changed -- focusing instead on news that U.S. health officials called for a pause on the use of Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccination because of blood clot concerns.“It was a bit stronger than the official consensus expectations, but it was lower than some people were worried about,” Matt Maley, chief market strategist for Miller Tabak + Co., said about the CPI report. When combined with the J&J news, “it means that the Fed can probably continue to provide plenty of stimulus going forward.”Still, the latest figures on consumer prices add fuel to an already heated debate about the path of inflation in the U.S., especially on the heels of last week’s Labor Department data showing a stronger-than-expected surge in producer prices.Some analysts and economists argue a wave of pent-up demand paired with trillions of dollars in government spending will spur a sustained upward movement in inflation. Bloomberg’s latest monthly survey shows economists continue to ratchet up growth forecasts.Read More: Bond Market’s Stalled-Out Reflation Trade Needs Actual InflationAmid supply chain bottlenecks, supply shortages and surging input costs, producers are already feeling the pinch of rising costs. While not all cost increases will be pushed through to consumers -- given a variety of different measures firms can take to offset costs -- sustained pressures in the production pipeline raise the risk of an acceleration in consumer inflation.Recent survey data highlighted developing cost pressures. The Institute for Supply Management’s latest figures showed more than half of service providers reported paying higher prices in March, the largest share since 2011. The ISM’s manufacturing survey showed about 72% of manufacturers said the same -- the second-most since 2008.Recently, some company executives have mentioned plans to raise prices for their products.Reopening InflationThe Labor Department’s data showed shelter costs, which make up about a third of the overall CPI, increased 0.3% in March. That was the biggest monthly gain since February 2020 and reflected a surge in the cost of lodging at hotels that was the biggest since 1991. Airfares also increased.The pickup in inflation translates into less take-home pay for American workers. A separate report Tuesday showed inflation-adjusted hourly earnings increased 1.5% in March from a year earlier, the smallest gain in more than a year.Digging DeeperGoods prices rose 4.1% in March from year ago, services up 1.8%Car and truck rental prices rose 11.7% from month earlier, most since June, while year-over-year increase was largest on recordFood prices climbed 0.1% from a month earlier, while energy costs jumped 5% in biggest gain since September 2017For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
