Vaya planned to announce the new name and rocket publicly on Wednesday. "We think ...

She added: "Companies have to honour their contract to the European Union before they export to other regions in the world. This is of course the case with AstraZeneca."I think it is clear that the company has to catch up and honour the contract it has with the EU member states before it can engage again in exporting vaccines...
