  1. Hindu editorial Hi I have tried writing concise of hindu editorial please read it and give ur feedback in comments so that i can improve my newspaper reading abilities 14th Dec, Hindu editorial This editorial deals with India-China trade imbalance. The key points are: * China is the largest importer of India’s iron ore * Every month 9 million tonnes of iron ore is shipped from India to China * China ships to India various manufactured goods ranging from locks to power equipments * Today China is helping India in infrastructure development, telecom expansion and power sector development * This has resulted in a record bilateral trade(expected to cross 60 billion $), making china the largest trade partner. But the trade deficit that india has with China is unsustainable * Trade deficit has quadrupled in the last 5 years from 4 to 16 billion $ * Deficit with China makes up 20% of India’s deficit * India’s strengths lie in IT, engineering products and Pharmaceuticals sector * But they haven’t been able to penentrate into Chinese markets because of china’s artificial trade barriers * TCS is the only IT company which has won a contract for a chinese company * Also our labour laws and comparatively higher wages make indian goods uncompetetive in china’s markets * The widening trade deficit has been source of tension in the bilateral relations * Last year, maximum anti-dumping investigations against China was filed by India * Indian industrialists are calling for import duties on chinese goods as cheap Chinese goods are crippling domestic industry * However things are changing for the good now * With labour shortages, demographic changes and increasing labour wages, china’s export competetiveness is on the decline * India also needs to make amends in its house. Some of them are * Rationalise labour laws * Improve infrastructure * Provide right subsidies to specific sectors CHINA’s SOLUTION for TRADE IMBALANCE * Expand tourism * Allow China into Indian manufacturing sector * Improve financial cooperation between the two * Establish a free trade area

  4. India to become 2nd largest wireless network by April :TRAI (source:The Economic Times: Latest business, finance, markets, stocks, company news from India.) Continuing its growth momentum, the country is set to become the second largest wireless network in the world with a subscriber base of over 300 million by April, telecom regulator TRAI said on Monday. "India's wireless subscriber base during the first half of April 2008, will surpass that of the US and will become the second wireless network in the world," TRAI said in a statement. Moreover, the total subscriber base, including wireless and wire-line would also cross 300 million mark in April, it added. Currently, China is the world's largest wireless network and is adding around 6-7 million subscribers every month. According to CTIA, a US-based wireless operators association, the current subscriber base of America is 256 million. The US is adding about 2-3 million subscribers in a month where as India's monthly wireless subscriber addition is highest in the range of 8-9 million a month, TRAI said. Releasing the monthly telecom subscriber base figures TRAI said during February, about 8.49 million telephone connections have been added as compared to 8.74 million in January. The total number of telephone connections reaches 290.11 million at the end of February, as compared to 281.62 million in January. The overall tele-density is 25.31 per cent at the end of February, against 24.63 per cent in January. In the wire-line segment, the subscriber base has slightly decreased to 39.18 million in February, against 39.22 million subscribers in January. P.S: ''The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of India or TRAI (established 1997) is the independent regulator established by the Government of India to regulate the telecommunications business in India'' -Wikipedia. -Thanks much, Sreekar
  5. Telecom Future In India And China (source:Business News and Financial News at Forbes.com) India and China are top of the class when it comes to global telecom growth rates, with a total of 200 million subscribers between them in the first quarter of 2007, according to a UN report. “Some 61% of the world’s mobile subscribers are in developing countries, fueled by countries like Brazil, China, India and Russia,†said the report, from the International Telecommunications Union. China has 87 million subscribers, India has a penetration rate of nearly 15% with 110 million subscribers. India, the world’s fastest-growing telecoms market, adds about 7 million subscribers every month. Intense competition has lead to discounted rates which in turn fuel demand. Mobile penetration rates in developing countries, excluding the least developed, grew from 26% in 2005 to nearly 34% in 2006, the report said. The average level of Internet usage in developing countries in 2006 was only 10%. Forty-eight of the 71 developing countries that submitted statistics for the study said that broadband penetration rates were less than 1%, and even China had a rate of only 2.9%. An increasing number of developing and emerging countries have joined the ranks of the list of top broadband subscribers (ranked by total number of subscribers rather than penetration rates), including Argentina, Brazil, India, Mexico, Poland, Russia and Turkey, ITU said. India has exceeded its target of 40 million Internet subscribers three years ahead of time. “Growth in the ICT sector has been nothing short of buoyant in the past year,†the report pointed out. In 2006, there were about 4 billion mobile and fixed-line subscribers and more than 1 billion Internet users worldwide. This included 1.27 billion fixed-line subscribers and 2.68 billion mobile subscribers. As countries adapt new technologies, fixed-line operators face increased competition from wireless telecommunications operators, providers of cable television networks and large Internet content providers with strong brands and deep pockets, the UN agency points out. But the least developed countries lag when it comes to mobile phone penetration as well as high-speed Internet connections. Only 22 of 50 of these countries offered broadband last year, and users in these countries often “pay extortionate rates for relatively low-speed broadband.†-Thanks much, Sreekar
