A leading consultant in the field delves into India’s move towards embracing good corporate governance. Good corporate governance is becoming a priority across the world. An OECD report to G20 finance ministers and central bank governors in 2015 begins as follows: “Good corporate governance is not an end in itself. It is a means to create market confidence and business integrity, which in turn is essential for companies that need access to equity capital for long-term investment.” Experts across the [...]

Two Indian projects made the cut among six worldwide winners of this year’s prestigious Whitley Awards, dubbed the Green Oscars for their celebration of animal and bird conservation in developing countries. Two Indian activists were singled out for their work in preserving birds and animals in the country’s remote areas and won the annual Whitley Awards. Sanjay Gubbi won the award worth £35,000 for his work to protect Karnataka’s tiger corridors and Purnima Barman was recognised for creating an all-female [...]

The Indian Prime Minister was on a packed tour of Germany, Spain, Russia and France in May/June and has returned with a slew of agreements and promising pacts for the future. When Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Berlin at the start of his European tour, the term used to describe the visit was the opening of a “new chapter” in the bilateral relations between India and Germany. The PM set off for his meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at her [...]

Link West showing early signs of success

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policy of renewing and redefining India’s millennia-old civilisational bonds with the Middle East are bearing concrete fruit in the form of strategic alliances and investments in India’s infrastructure sector. Mention the Middle East to an Indian and he will immediately associate it with oil, deserts, Dubai and, very possibly, a non-resident relative stationed there. None of the above provides a misleading picture of the region; equally, none of them paints the complete picture either. Today, the [...]

Modi’s friendship with Netanyahu brings cheer to Indian farmers

Prime Minister Modi’s historic visit to Israel has set the course for core areas of collaboration between the two countries, writes India Inc. CEO Manoj Ladwa. Historic, as we said last week, is a much misused word these days, but to describe Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s just concluded visit to Israel in any other way will be to miss the woods for the trees. That’s because the two countries signed several agreements that can substantially change the lives of long-suffering [...]

Will Modi’s charm melt Trump?

The Indian PM’s visit to Washington will be crucial to determine how much the US President is in a mood to listen. The Indian political leadership has, since Independence, rooted for a multi-polar world. Now, with Donald Trump’s US voluntarily pulling back from its role as world’s peace keeper of last resort, India is close to being granted its 70-year-old wish. But, in keeping with the old Indian proverb that more troubles are caused by wishes that are granted than [...]

India-Israel: Close allies in keeping peace and order

2018-05-31T06:16:31+00:00June 16th, 2017|2017/2018, Cover Story, June 2017, Year|

Politically and strategically, Israel is India’s most trusted ally in West Asia, writes a political senior columnist. Twenty-five years ago, in 1992, India and Israel formally established full diplomatic relations and exchanged ambassadors. In 2003, Ariel Sharon, Israel’s prime minister at the time, travelled to India, becoming the first head of government from Tel Aviv to do so. This month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will become the first Indian prime minister to visit Israel. This will be a historic moment [...]

The UK election results don’t portend a doomsday scenario

2018-06-08T09:58:10+00:00June 16th, 2017|2017/2018, India-UK, June 2017, Year|

When politicians misjudge the public mood and gamble, the end result can be politically catastrophic. In that sense, the UK election results are nothing short of a political earthquake – the second one to hit the UK in 10 months. Just as David Cameron had misread the public mood in Britain when he called for the Brexit vote, Theresa May’s decision to go back to the people a full three years before her term as Her Majesty’s First Minister was [...]
