New Delhi: India has slipped to 42nd place on an annual Global Democracy Index amid “rise of conservative religious ideologies” and increase in vigilantism and violence against minorities as well as other dissenting voices. While Norway has again topped the list, followed by Iceland and Sweden, compiled by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), India has moved down from 32nd place last year and remains classified among “flawed democracies”.
According to new survey from the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), half of the world’s ten most expensive cities to live in are in Asia, with Singapore and Hong Kong firmly defending their top two spots from a year ago.
Beijing: China’s economy expanded more than expected in the second quarter of the year, Beijing said today, fuelling hopes growth may be stabilising, but analysts warned private investment was worryingly low. The world’s second biggest economy grew 6.7 per cent year on year in April-June, slightly quicker than forecast in an AFP survey and the same as the year’s first quarter.
London: Mumbai and Bangalore are among the cheapest cities in the world, according to a top London-based forecast group that named Singapore as the most expensive city.
