India, Netherlands to strengthen ties

@NLinIndiaIndia and the Netherlands have discussed ways to strengthen bilateral political and economic ties, including boosting cooperation at the United Nations and other international fora.
The two countries held Foreign Office Consultations in New Delhi, with the Indian side led by A Gitesh Sarma, Secretary, West, Ministry of External Affairs, and Johanna Brandt, Secretary General, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, leading the Dutch delegation. In a statement, the MEA said, India and the Netherlands share a multi-faceted relationship. 
Both countries used this opportunity to review the entire gamut of bilateral relations, including political, economic, commercial, scientific and cultural cooperation, the MEA said.
India welcomed the participation of the Netherlands as the partner country for the 25th edition of the CII-DST Tech Summit scheduled to be held in New Delhi in October this year, the MEA said.

IMF Lagarde: World economy uncertain

The head of the International Monetary Fund says the world economy faces a period of uncertainty.
Managing Director Christine Lagarde made the comment after the IMF cut its global growth forecast to 3.3 percent, down 0.2 points from three months ago.
She spoke in Washington on Thursday, ahead of the G-20 meeting of finance ministers and central bank governors.
Lagarde said the global economy faces “quite uncertain” times. While the IMF expects a rebound in growth in 2020, the forecast is “precarious and subject to downside risks.”
She said the world needs to combat unfair trade practices, distortions in trade, tariffs and other barriers.
Lagarde said the delay in Britain’s departure from the European Union “gives time for continued discussions between the various parties involved in the UK.”
The IMF chief said “a no-deal Brexit would have been a terrible outcome.”
The delay of Britain’s separation from the EU avoids the “terrible outcome” of a “no-deal” Brexit that would further pressure the global economy, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde said on Thursday. However, Lagarde told reporters in Washington that the arrangement will prolong uncertainty and won’t resolve the issues between Britain and the EU. “At least the UK is not leaving on April 12 without a deal,” Reuters quoted Lagarde as saying. “It probably gives time for economic agents to better prepare for all options, particularly industrialists and workers, in order to try to secure their future.” Lagarde added that “a no-deal Brexit would have been a terrible outcome.”

Spanish General Election on April 28

Spain’s political parties are set to start campaigning for the country’s April 28 general election. The ruling Socialists are trying to remain in power and the extreme right is seeking to enter parliament.
Spain‘s Supreme Court has rejected a request from six jailed Catalan pro-independence politicians to leave prison in order to take part in the campaigns for the Spanish general election on April 28 and the local & #EU elections on May 26.
The campaign period starts at midnight on Thursday. Successfully wooing the undecided voters could be key to Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez continuing to govern or ushering in a coalition government made up of right-wing parties, AP said. Polls indicate the far-right party Vox is poised to win its first seats in the lower house. If that happens, it could increase the fragmentation in Spanish politics by introducing a fifth national party of significant size.
