The Enforcement Directorate (ED) today said it will appeal against a recent order of a PMLA tribunal, asking the agency to release a "miniscule" amount of assets it had attached in connection with a multi-crore-rupee bank loan fraud probe related to the Kingfisher Airlines and its promoter Vijay Mallya.

Empty hotels, idle boats: What happens when a Pacific island upsets China? 19.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Empty hotel rooms, idle tour boats and shuttered travel agencies reveal widening fissures in the tiny Pacific nation of Palau, which is caught in an escalating diplomatic tug-of-war between China and Taiwan. Late last year, China effectively banned tour groups to the idyllic tropical archipelago, branding it an illegal destination due to its lack of diplomatic status. As China extends its influence across the Pacific, Palau is one of Taipei's 18 remaining allies worldwide and is under pressure to switch allegiances, officials and business people there say. "There is an ongoing discussion about China weaponising tourism," said Jeffrey Barabe, owner of Palau Central Hotel and Palau Carolines Resort in Koror. "Some believe that the dollars were allowed to flow in and now they are pulling it back to try and get Palau to establish ties diplomatically." In the commercial centre of Koror, the Chinese pullback is obvious. Hotel blocks and restaurants stand empty, travel agencies are boarded and boats which take ...

 India's current account deficit is expected to widen to 2.8% of the GDP in this financial year, says a Nomura report. With rising oil prices, depreciating rupee and outflow of portfolio investments, there are concerns that CAD might rise in the current fiscal. "Overall, we expect the current account deficit to widen to 2.8% of GDP in FY19 from 1.9% in FY18," the Japanese financial services major said. It further said that "balance of payment (BOP) funding to remain a challenge in FY19 as the basic BOP (current account + net FDI) is negative and portfolio flows also remain negative". CAD, which is the difference between the inflow and outflow of foreign exchange, jumped to USD 48.7 billion, or 1.9% of GDP, in 2017-18 fiscal. This was higher than USD 14.4 billion, or 0.6%, CAD in 2016-17 fiscal.
