Africa's burgeoning middle class brings hope to a continent 26.12.2011 The Guardian -- World Latest
A new financial assertiveness and cultural self-confidence is growing, fuelled by technology At the end of another of Kinshasa's potholed roads, lined with shacks and crumbling matchbox houses, comes a sudden clearing. It is a sandy patch of land surrounded by water in which bare-chested boys in dugout canoes paddle among the hyacinths. A giant pump is working day and night, reclaiming land from the sandbanks and river beds, expanding the city in defiance of nature. Welcome to La Cité du Fleuve – River City, or "the new Manhattan" as this multibillion-pound development has been hopefully described by newspapers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Just 15 hectares (38 acres) now, but aiming for 380, it is perhaps the most ambitious statement yet about Africa's improving fortunes – and the promise of a growing African consumer class. River City is backed by a British hedge fund that specialises in counter-trend betting and, says the developer Robert Choudury, "a bigger ...

2011: Not a smooth ride for Railways 24.12.2011 Financial Chronicle
It was a tough ride for new Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi in 2011 as the PSU behemoth was beset with severe fund crunch, frequent accidents, delays in key projects and thousands of posts lying vacant. Soon after Mamata Banerjee became chief minister of West Bengal in May, the Railway Ministry was under Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's direct control till July 13, when Trivedi took over the reins. But his honeymoon period was short-lived because no sooner he took over, he had to rush to the Howrah Kalka Mail accident site at Fatehpur in Uttar Pradesh to oversee the relief and rescue operation. The accident claimed 68 lives. Since then his stint has been fraught with multiple challenges. Cash crunch led to inordinate delays in completion of key rail projects, with Railways requiring about Rs 1,25,000 cr to complete 129 new lines, 45 gauge conversion and 160 doubling projects. Similarly several safety-related projects for upgrading of signalling system are on hold due to paucity of funds. ...
