    • SECTION 1 - TEN NEWS HEADLINES
  1. Education – ‘20% rural students lack books’ – According to the Annual State of Education Report (ASER) survey conducted, about 20% of rural children have no textbooks at home, the sixth month of school closures due to COVID-19 across the country. In Andhra Pradesh, less than 35% of children had textbooks, and only 60% had textbooks in Rajasthan. More than 98% had textbooks in West Bengal, Nagaland and Assam. In the week of the survey, about one in three rural children had done no learning activity at all. About two in three had no learning material or activity given by their school that week, and only one in 10 had access to live online classes. However, it’s not always about technology; in fact, levels of smartphone ownership have almost doubled from 2018, but a third of children with smartphone access still did not receive any learning materials.
  2. India Politics – In Bihar poll rallies, Modi invokes Ram temple issue – Even as polling for 71 seats was on in Bihar, PM Modi invoked the Ram temple construction in Ayodhya, and attacked Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and chief ministerial face of the ‘Mahagathbandan’ Tejashwi Yadav by indirectly calling him “Jungle raj ka yuvraj (crown prince of the rule of lawlessness)”. The first phase of polling for 71 seats was held amid tight security. Officials followed COVID-19 guidelines. Mr. Modi addressed three public meetings for the second phase of election, coming up on November 3.  Meanwhile, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi slammed Mr. Modi and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar at his public meetings in West Champaran and Darbhanga districts.
  3. Environment and Ecology – ‘Green’ crackers to make full-fledged Delhi debut – Delhi is set for its first full-fledged date with ‘green’ crackers this Deepavali amid growing sentiment against not deepening the air pollution crisis the Capital countenances every winter. A ban on fireworks was imposed in 2018 and in 2019 only ‘green’ crackers were allowed, but the permission had come too late for manufacturers to ensure their availability on time. The production levels, however, are likely to be on the lower side this year due to the on-going novel coronavirus pandemic, with the Capital continuing to register high daily numbers of fresh infections. According to the Delhi police, 40 traders in all had applied for a licence to sell firecrackers in 2019; this year they received only 28 requests, out of which 15 have been given the nod. Around eight shops in Old Delhi have an all-year licence to sell firecrackers.
  4. Bihar Elections – Bihar election phase 1 sees 54% turnout – The first of the three-phase Bihar Assembly election in 71 constituencies across 16 districts ended peacefully on Wednesday, amid reports of clashes between supporters of two parties in Shahpur, Kaimur and Gaya, and electronic voting machines (EVM) not working properly in some places. According to the Election Commission’s (EC) Voter Turnout App, the provisional polling was 54.26% that was updated till 10 p.m. Nearly 2.15 crore eligible voters exercised their franchise, marginally lower than in 2015. The second phase of polling for 94 seats will be held on November 3, while the third one will be on November 7 for 78 seats. Counting of votes will be done on November 10.
  5. Science and Technology – ISRO to launch satellite EOS-01 on Nov 7 – India would launch its latest earth observation satellite EOS-01 and nine international customer spacecraft onboard its Polar rocket PSLV-C49 from the spaceport of Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh on November 7. This is the first launch by ISRO since the COVID-19 lockdown came into force in March. ISRO Chairman K. Sivan had said in June that ten space missions being prepared for launch this year had been ’disturbed’ due to the lockdown. EOS-01 is intended for applications in agriculture, forestry and disaster management support, ISRO said. The launch is tentatively scheduled at 3.02 p.m. on November 7 subject to weather conditions from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota, the statement noted.
  6. COVID-19 Impact – Seven months on, state asks railways to open Mumbai local trains to all – Over seven months since the Covid lockdown, the state government has written to the railways to open local train services for everyone, but with separate time slots for those authorised to travel till now, including essential service providers, and the general public, with peak hours only for the former. The government has not announced a desired date and has left it to the railways to work out the modalities. But sources said it is likely to be from the first week of November. The state has suggested staggered timings wherein the general public can be allowed to board trains during three non-peak time slots-—from the first local to 7.30am, 11am to 4.30pm and from 8pm till the last train for the day. The remaining time slots can be reserved for those authorized till now.
  7. Social  – ‘India seeing its biggest content revolution’ –  India is seeing its biggest content revolution and there is a fundamental shift in viewing habits with two out of three Indians saying that they would rather give up TV than YouTube for a month, said Sanjay Gupta, country head and vice-president, Google India. Speaking at YouTube’s annual ‘Brandcast’ event, Mr. Gupta added that online video today is not just about entertainment but also experiences and learning.
  8. World – Erdogan blasts ‘disgusting’ Charlie Hebdo cartoon, Turkey President vows to take ‘legal and diplomatic action’ – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vented his outrage at the “scoundrels” at the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo for mocking him in a front-cover cartoon. His office also vowed to take “legal and diplomatic action” over the depiction of the 66-year-old leader. The publication stoked fury in Turkish political circles and added to a sense of crisis enveloping Turkey’s deteriorating relations with France. The cartoon came out just days after Mr. Erdogan called for a boycott of French products and questioned President Emmanuel Macron’s sanity for promoting a drive against radical Islam. Mr. Macron’s accompanying defence of the media’s right to mock religion stirred angry protests across Turkey and swathes of the Muslim world.
  9. World – China has brought lawlessness to SL, Maldives – USA – US secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that the Chinese Communist Party had brought lawlessness to Sri Lanka and the Maldives, as the top US diplomat kept up tough criticism of China during a trip to Asia. The five-day tour is aimed at girding allies against China’s increasing political and military inroads in the region in recent years. China has invested billions of dollars in projects in Sri Lanka and the Maldives as part of its Belt and Road Initiative of transport and energy links, a programme the US believes is designed to trap smaller countries into debt. Pompeo was heavily critical of China’s “lawless and threatening” behaviour in the region, telling a news conference at a resort near Male that Beijing was illegally occupying territory and damaging the environment.
  10. Economy – U.K. to partner for developing GIFT City, funding infra pipeline – The United Kingdom has entered into a strategic partnership to develop India’s fledgling international financial services centre GIFT City, and agreed to set up a new Fund of Funds to be managed by the State Bank of India (SBI) group in order to route the U.K.’s future capital investments into India. India and the U.K. also signed off on a new infrastructure finance and policy partnership to help India execute its National Infrastructure Pipeline that envisages investments worth $1.4 trillion, at the 10th Economic and Financial Dialogue between the two countries steered by U.K. Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.

2.1 Global FDI flows decline sharply: UNCTAD
 

 
Key point –
  • Global foreign direct investment (FDI) flows fell 49 per cent in the first half of 2020 compared to 2019 due to the economic fallout from COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Despite the 2020 drop, FDI remains the most important source of external finance for developing countries.
The report –
  • In the wake of the pandemic, lockdowns around the world slowed existing investment projects and the prospects of a deep recession led multinational enterprises to reassess new projects.
  • Developed economies saw the biggest fall, with FDI reaching an estimated $98 billion in the six-month period, declining 75 per cent as compared to 2019.
  • The trend was worsened by sharply negative inflows in European economies, mainly in the Netherlands and Switzerland. FDI flows to North America fell by 56 per cent to $68 billion.
  • The 16 per cent decrease in FDI flows to developing economies was less than expected, due mainly to investment in China.
  • Flows decreased by just 12 per cent in Asia but were 28 per cent lower than in 2019 in Africa and 25 per cent lower in Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • In the first half of 2020, developing countries in Asia accounted for more than half of global FDI. Flows to economies in transition were down 81 per cent due to a strong decline in Russia. The decline cut across all major forms of FDI.    
  • Cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&A) values reached $319 billion in the first three quarters of 2020. The 21 per cent decline in developed countries, which account for about 80 per cent of global transactions, was checked by the continuation of M&A activity in digital industries.
  • The value of greenfield investment project announcements—an indicator of future FDI trends—was $358 billion in the first eight months of 2020.
  • Developing economies witnessed a much bigger fall (-49%) than developed economies (-17%), reflecting their more limited capacity to roll out economic support packages.
  • The number of announced cross-border project finance deals declined by 25 per cent, with the biggest drops in the third quarter of 2020, suggesting that the slide is still accelerating.
Future outlook –
  • The full year may witness a 30 per cent to 40 per cent decrease in FDI flows.
  • The rate of decline in developed economies may flatten as some investment activity appeared to be picking up in the third quarter.
  • Flows to developing economies are likely to stabilize, with east Asia showing signs of an impending recovery.
