Indian intervention at Ministerial meeting of WTO on fisheries subsidy negotiations

Fisheries are a common endowment to humanity, a global public commons. Therefore, the sharing of this should be in an equitable and just manner. Any unbalanced or unequal agreement would bind us into current fishing arrangements which may not necessarily meet everyone’s future requirements. As we discuss sustainability, it is essential that big subsidizers take greater responsibility to reduce their subsidies and fishing capacities, in accordance with the principles of ‘Polluter Pays’ and ‘Common but Differentiated Responsibilities’.

Threat posed by military Industry of China- Biden Issued Executive Order-03/06/2021

I find that the use of Chinese surveillance technology outside the PRC and the development or use of Chinese surveillance technology to facilitate repression or serious human rights abuse constitute unusual and extraordinary threats, which have their source in whole or substantial part outside the United States, to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby expand the scope of the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13959 to address those threats.

Increasing the Minimum Wage for Federal Contractors-Eecutive Order 14026-27/04/2021

This order promotes economy and efficiency in Federal procurement by increasing the hourly minimum wage paid by the parties that contract with the Federal Government to $15.00 for those workers working on or in connection with a Federal Government contract as described in section 8 of this order. Raising the minimum wage enhances worker productivity and generates higher-quality work by boosting workers' health, morale, and effort; reducing absenteeism and turnover; and lowering supervisory and training costs. Accordingly, ensuring that Federal contractors pay their workers an hourly wage of at least $15.00 will bolster economy and efficiency in Federal procurement.

FBI and Private Sector: Battling the Cyber Threat Together-Christopher Wray-28/01/2021

At the FBI, we’ve been fighting the cyber threat for many years now. We began our early high-tech crime effort in the mid-1990s, and created our Cyber Division almost 20 years ago, in 2002. We’ve become known for our efforts to call out destabilizing and damaging cyber activity by nation-state actors, like the indictment last summer of two hackers working on behalf of the Chinese Ministry of State Security, stealing intellectual property from companies in the U.S. and around the world while also targeting dissidents who spoke out against the Communist Party.

PM Modi addressed at Bangladesh National Day programme

मैं इसके लिए आपका आभार व्यक्त करता हूँ। मुझे खुशी है कि मुक्तिजुद्धो में शामिल कई भारतीय सैनिक आज विशेषकर से इस कार्यक्रम में मेरे साथ उपस्थित भी हैं। बांग्लादेश के मेरे भाइयों और बहनों, यहां की नौजवान पीढ़ी को मैं एक और बात याद कराना चाहूंगा और बड़े गर्व के साथ याद दिलाना चाहता हूं। बांग्लादेश की आजादी के लिए संघर्ष में उस संघर्ष में शामिल होना, मेरे जीवन के भी पहले आंदोलनों में से एक था। मेरी उम्र 20-22 साल रही होगी जब मैंने और मेरे कई साथियों ने बांग्लादेश के लोगों की आजादी के लिए सत्याग्रह किया था।

Blocking Property With Respect to the Situation in Burma-Executive Order 12/02/2021

I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, find that the situation in and in relation to Burma, and in particular the February 1, 2021, coup, in which the military overthrew the democratically elected civilian government of Burma and unjustly arrested and detained government leaders, politicians, human rights defenders, journalists, and religious leaders, thereby rejecting the will of the people of Burma as expressed in elections held in November 2020 and undermining the country's democratic transition and rule of law, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States. I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.
