Looking East and beyond 29.8.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
Addressing the 12th India-Asean meeting in Nay Pyi Taw a few days back, the external affairs minister, Sushma Swaraj, rightly underlined that "the ASEAN-India strategic partnership owes its strength to the fact that our 'Look East' to ASEAN meets your 'Look West' towards India". Swaraj has done well to reassure the region that the new Indian government would like to stand with them, taking the trajectories of common interests higher in the coming years, both in terms of achievement and relevance to the bilateral Asean+1 relationship and of the multilateral ambition at the regional and global levels. This is important because there is a lot of concern in the region about the viability of New Delhi's role as regional balancer, a role that became a casualty of the policy paralysis in the previous government. Ironically, this happened at a time when the region has been passing through one of the most critical phases in its evolution.

Everything works 29.8.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
Mamata Banerjee can sometimes seem endearingly like a deprived child let loose in an expensive toy shop. One moment she craves London, the next, it's Switzerland. In a trice, her seemingly fickle attention has flickered off to Singapore. There, she first demands the Jurong bird park, then the night safari, then, perhaps both. That is not said in any spirit of mockery. On the contrary, the chief minister's ebullience invites respect on two counts. First, high office hasn't dimmed her capacity to be impressed. Second, she doesn't seem to have any yearnings for herself. Whatever she wants is for West Bengal.

The US still decides the future of capitalism, not the G20, and not the Brics nations | Leo Panitch 27.8.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
A new development bank, launched by leading emerging nations, has stolen the G20s thunder. But it wont pose a real challenge to US dominance of global markets International attention has been diverted away from this years G20 meetings in Australia by the declaration from the leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, at their meeting in Fortaleza Brazil this July, that they would launch a new Brics bank . Created by the US Treasury in the wake of the Asian financial crisis at the end of the 1990s, the G20 was designed to get the major emerging market states to take responsibility alongside the G7 for the new international financial architecture. This was seen as providing legitimacy for the continuing central role of the US in superintending a greatly expanded but increasingly volatile global capitalism. We underscore the critical importance of rejecting protectionism and not turning inward ... we will refrain from raising new barriers to investment or to trade in goods and ...

First trip 26.8.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
The chief minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, wants to turn Calcutta into another London, but her first visit abroad as chief minister was to Singapore. The ostensible purpose of this trip to the city-state was to attract investment to a state that is in dire need of capital, especially in manufacturing. Given this aim, the choice of Singapore will inevitably raise a few eyebrows, since that thriving metropolis is not known as a centre of manufacturing. On the contrary, it is a city of investment bankers, of people who manage other people's money, and sometimes that money is in need of some dry cleaning. If Ms Banerjee was interested in persuading these bankers to bring money into the state she lords over, there is no evidence that she spent a lot of time with them. Moreover, there is nothing in the prevailing climate of West Bengal that would inspire confidence among merchant bankers to send forth monies here. There is nothing in West Bengal to inspire faith, which is at the heart of any ...
