- Equally angry on two fronts Equality body slammed by both DUP and Sinn Fein THE Equality Commission has come under fire from unionists and republicans over its findings on the religious make-up of Northern Ireland's public and private sector workforces. Chief commissioner Bob Collins was
accused by Sinn Fein of underplaying Catholic disadvantage in his organisation's latest report. But he was also accused by the DUP of being too slow to address the under-representation of Protestants. According to the Equality Commission's 15th annual report on the religious composition of
the monitored workforce in 2004, the proportions of Protestants and Roman Catholics were 57.7% and 42.3% respectively. This matched the proportions of Protestants and Catholics available for work which was 57.3% and 42.7% respectively. (Digital
- Religious Imbalance Gone From Workforce The religious imbalance in the Northern Ireland workforce has all but disappeared, the Equality Commission claimed yesterday. Catholics are less likely to be underpresented in the workforce today than when monitoring began in 1990. However,

- India industry: The next wave India's IT and remote-service industries just keep on growing ASKED for a sound-check at a function in Delhi this month, Bill Gates eschewed the "1,2,3..." favoured by ordinary mortals. "One billion, 2 billion...," he counted. They think big, these IT moguls, and
especially, these days, in India.Microsoft later announced plans to invest $1.7 billion in India over the next four years, about half of it in adding to its existing research and development (R&D) and technical-support operations. "The only thing that limits us in India," Mr Gates told the local
press, "is the speed at which we can recruit." A few days earlier, Intel, a giant chipmaker, had unveiled plans to invest more than $1 billion over five years, much of it in expanding its R&D centre in Bangalore. In October Cisco Systems, the world's largest maker of the routers and switches that
direct internet traffic, announced its own plans to invest $1.1 billion in India. (TCM)

- Manpower survey reveals positive hiring activity in India in Q1 Manpower India has released the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey for the first quarter of 2006 revealing sustained positive hiring intentions by employers in India. The hiring pace in India continues to be the strongest of the

Even though this figure represents a decrease of 13 percentage points from the fourth quarter of 2005, the labor market remains extremely healthy. For the first time since the survey was launched
in India, employers in the Finance, Insurance and Retail industry sector are the most optimistic, with a Net Employment Outlook of +32%. (IndiaInfoline)
China stated Wednesday that its trade surplus with the rest of the world had tripled in 2005, to a record $102 billion, a figure that could reignite global trade frictions and step up pressure on the government to allow its currency to appreciate further.
- Trade Surplus Tripled in '05, China Says
The United States and European Union officials have been pressuring China during the last few years to allow its currency to appreciate. The hope is to restrain the flood of Chinese exports to the world and to rebalance China's economy to allow for more imports.
