Technology angle: Maglev is short for Magnetic Levitation in which trains float on a guideway using the principle of magnetic repulsion. Each magnet has two poles. Now if you play with two magnets, you'll realize that opposite poles attract, whereas similar poles repel. Magnetic levitation, maglev, or magnetic suspension is a method by which an object is suspended with no support other than magnetic fields Magnetic force is used to counteract the effects of the gravitational acceleration and any other accelerations The two primary issues involved in magnetic levitation are Lifting forces: providing an upward force sufficient to counteract gravity, and Stability: ensuring that the system does not spontaneously slide or flip into a configuration where the lift is neutralized.
Page-ll: Japan calls for'Free and Open Indo-Pacific Strategy'. Japan's diplomacy with India during Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's latest visit, highlighted the country's intensifying focus on the Indo-Pacific region and Tokyo's evolving foreign policy. Indian and Pacific and "two The 'Free and Open Indo-Pacific Strategy' rests on "two oceans" continents"Africa and Asia. Japan government's laid out the overarching nature of the new concept, "Free and Open Indo- Pacific Strategy" that aims to prepare Japan to deal with the fast changing global and regional order and threats from China and North Korea New Japanese strategy will build peace pro-actively, based on "diplomacy that takes a panoramic view of the world map". The strategy aims to create a "free and open" Asia-Pacific region which connects parts of eastern Africa, south Asia and southeast Asia with the western Pacific Ocean region and Japan. Under this strategy, Japan will expand infrastructure, development, trade and investment, and enhance business environment and human development from East Asia as a starting point, to the Middle East and Africa.
Analysis: By connecting "two oceans" and two continents", Japan is quietly challenging China's aggressive plans in the South China Sea that pose a threat to the energy lane that sustains Japanese economy The government of Japan believes that connectivity between Asia and Africa through a free and open Indo-Pacific, is expected to support stability and prosperity of the region.

Business Page-13: Suzuki to invest 3,900 crore in Gujarat for third car plant Car Production facility: Japanese auto giant Suzuki Motor Corp. announced fresh investments of about 3,900 crore in Gujarat to add a third car production plant at the Hansalpur facility.

Business Page 14: Govt. committee to review exporters $10 bn-problem. A government panel headed by the Revenue Secretary will meet on September 19 to resolve a $10 billion-problem, troubling India's exporters and its potential adverse impact on jobs. 'Committee on Exports'- set up on September 12 to address exporters' concerns over the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime would, among other things, take up the issue of "inordinate delay in refund of GST to exporters" and the consequent blockage of working capital that is severely affecting exporters' liquidity and enhancing their tax burden. Tax credit refund: Exporters were expecting that the Integrated GST (IGST) refund or refund of input tax credit (ITC) would be available to them in August, 2017 for the exports made during July However, since the filing of (GST returns) GSTR-1,2 and 3 for July has been extended till October 10, October 31 and November 10, respectively, exporters will not be able to get the refund by November. Since exporters would have to wait till around December (considering 15 days for issuance of acknowledgement and another seven days for getting provisional refund of 90% of the total refund claim) for availing refund of the GST on exports, it would mean that they would have to arrange funds from their own sources to pay GST for the July-October period The blocked amount for the four months time is estimated to be about $10 billion.
