As a result of the Cabinet's all-out efforts to realize trustworthy politics and the administration that put the people first, over a little less than a year since I assumed the post of Prime Minister, I have been able to hammer out major reform policies. Now, it is time to take steady actions in line with these reform policies.

At the same time, I will spare no efforts in contributing to the ...

The most striking fact about India’s legal system is the difference between investor protection provided by the law as opposed to protection in practice. Table 2.1 compares India’s scores relative to different legal-origin country groups examined in the law and finance literature (by LLSV and others), and other emerging markets along several dimensions of law and institutions. As discussed above, with the English common-law system, India has strong protection of investors on paper. For example, the scores on both creditor rights (with a score of 4/4 in LLSV (1998), based on the Company’s Act of 1956, to 2/4 in ... market research, surveys and trends
Editorial :: Kan must present clear national strategy
Japan's new administration must not repeat the mistakes of the previous cabinet, which betrayed people's expectations as it lost its way and stumbled from blunder to blunder.

Policy Framework Paper -- Uganda -- Enhanced Structural Adjustment ...
1.  Uganda has achieved strong economic growth and macroeconomic stability in the last decade, owing largely to the implementation since the late1980s of an ambitious program of macroeconomic adjustment and structural reform.

Jordan's Risky Business As Usual
(Jillian Schwedler is associate professor of government at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. She spent May and early June in Jordan.) Political reformers in Jordan are struck by a sense of déjà vu . Jordan has been parliament-free since November 2009, when King ‘Abdallah II dissolved the legislature for not moving fast enough on his program of economic reform. The deputies had yet served even half of their four-year terms. Since then, a hastily assembled rump cabinet has been publishing its own ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Updating the Public Service (Part 2)
Diffusion of the traditional image of the GA was mainly the outcome of two unrelated tendencies. The first of them had a personal origin. That was President Premadasa's anxiety to consolidate his power. Having come up from scratch, it was quite natural for him to be suspicious of threats from the hereditary establishment. That sense of insecurity may have prompted him to introduce structures that could carry his writ down to the grassroots and on which he could have the confidence that he would not be let down. The Divisional Secretary System that President Premadasa introduced, independent and parallel to a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
