US Bans the Use of Chinese Companies Huawei, ZTE Telecom Equipment Sales

US Bans the Use of Chinese Companies Huawei, ZTE Telecom Equipment Sales

US Bans the Use of Chinese Companies Huawei, ZTE Telecom Equipment Sales: The Biden administration has prohibited new telecommunications equipment from China’s Huawei Technologies and ZTE from being approved because they pose a “unacceptable risk” to US national security.

November 2022 Current Affairs Quiz

Further Development :

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) said, it had adopted the final rules, which also bar the sale or import of equipment made by China’s surveillance equipment maker Dahua Technology, video surveillance firm Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology and telecoms firm Hytera Communications Corp.

What Has been Said:

The FCC’s five members voted unanimously to adopt new rules that will prohibit the importation or sale of the targeted products. These new rules are an important part of our ongoing actions to protect the American people from national security threats involving telecommunications,” FCC Chairperson Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statement. He added that the move had “broad, bipartisan backing” among the US congressional leadership.

According to the FCC, the prohibition is the latest step in a years-long effort “to keep US networks safe” by identifying and blocking devices deemed to be security concerns. “The Chinese Communist Party will stop at nothing to exploit our laws and undermine our national security,” he said in a statement. “This legislation fixes a dangerous loophole in our law, curtailing their efforts to worm their way into our telecommunications networks.”

Why US Govt Opted This:

The move represents Washington’s latest crackdown on the Chinese tech giants amid fears that Beijing could use Chinese tech companies to spy on Americans.

US security officials have warned that equipment from Chinese brands such as Huawei could be used to interfere with fifth-generation (5G) wireless networks and collect sensitive information.

The services identified as threats under that law were subsequently subject to the Secure Equipment Act of 2021, which was signed into law by President Joe Biden. That act created the groundwork for Friday’s announcement. It directed the FCC to “adopt rules clarifying that it will no longer review or issue new equipment licenses” to those companies.

Egypt’s President invited as chief guest for Republic Day 2023

Republic Day 2023: Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has been invited to be the primary guest for India’s Republic Day in 2023, indicating New Delhi’s continued focus on the Arab world as it prepares for a year of high-profile diplomatic engagements. The formal invitation was handed over when external affairs minister S Jaishankar met Sisi in Cairo on October 16 during an official visit to Egypt, the people said. Egypt is among the nine guest countries invited to the G20 Summit under India’s presidency in 2023.

November 2022 Current Affairs Quiz

An invitation as chief guest for the Republic Day celebrations on January 26 is a signal honour reserved for the country’s close allies and partners. There were no chief guests at the celebrations in 2021 and 2022, largely because of disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was the last chief guest to participate the 2020 celebrations.

Republic Day 2023: Key point

The 68-year-old general-turned-politician will be the first Egyptian leader to be invited by India for Republic Day celebrations, despite the fact that the two nations have had strong ties for decades, particularly as founding members of the Non-Aligned Movement in 1961. Egypt faced serious domestic political issues such as the Arab Spring protests and a severe economic crisis at a time when India’s focus moved towards the Gulf countries because of interests such as energy, trade, investments and the presence of millions of expatriates.

India Forms Panel to Revamp Only Govt Job Guarantee Scheme

India Forms Panel to Revamp Only Govt Job Guarantee Scheme

India Forms Panel to Revamp Only Govt Job Guarantee Scheme: India’s federal rural development ministry has formed a panel to revamp its only job guarantee scheme in the hope of directing more work to the country’s poorer regions, a senior government official said on Friday.

November 2022 Current Affairs Quiz

The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, or MNREGA, was in high demand in the Asian nation’s rural areas as they emerged from the pandemic amid soaring inflation and limited non-farm job opportunities. Residents of relatively affluent states, however, may have fared better in securing work under the key anti-poverty job program, triggering calls for changes to the scheme.

What Has Been Said:

“The panel will recommend institutional mechanisms, including governance and administrative structures, for more effective utilization of funds, especially to address poverty,” the official said. The panel, which is expected to submit its report by January, will examine expenditure trends across various states and identify reasons for variations, the official added. According to official data, states such as Bihar and Odisha spend less on the employment scheme than states such as Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan, which have a higher per-capita income.

About The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme(MGNREGA):

The MNREGA jobs programme, introduced more than 15 years ago, allows citizens to enrol for work such as building roads, digging wells or creating other rural infrastructure, and receive a minimum wage for 100 days each year.

The government’s expenditure on job guarantees is one of the largest social sector budget items. For fiscal 2022-23, New Delhi has allocated 730 billion Indian rupees ($8.94 billion) to the jobs scheme, a decrease from the previous year’s record grant of 1.1 trillion rupees. However, the allocation could be increased in the final quarter of this fiscal. The government may raise rural spending to 2 trillion rupees next fiscal year.

It’s Effect:

The revaluation of the scheme comes as rural unemployment in India has remained above 7% for most of the current fiscal year, according to data from the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE).
