Page 10 World News: Setting agenda for next BRICS meet As the countdown for the September summit of the Brazil-Russia-India-China- South Africa (BRICS) grouping begins, scholars, academics and government officials have been brainstorming ways in which the emerging economies can set the global agenda, based on new rules of governance .

Neighbours wary as Doklam crisis drags on. From Nepal to Japan, countries in South and Southeast Asia are keenly observing the Doklam standoff between India and China, some taking sides, some staying neutral. . Pakistan has thrown its weight behind China, its "iron brother". During a visit to Islamabad by China's Vice- Premier, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Pakistan's independence, Islamabad backed all positions adopted by China, ranging from Doklam to South China Sea. Japan has become the first G-7 country to support India's position on the Doklam issue. In New Delhi,Japan's Ambassador to India acknowledged that Doklam "is disputed between China and Bhutan", countering Beijing's claim that the stand-off is over Chinese territory. . Nepal, which shares border with both India and China, has expressed neutrality, and called for a diplomatic solution. The escalating tensions may have culprits on both sides of the fence, but for many in East Asia, it underscores the fact that China is embroiled in multiple territorial disputes across the Eurasian landmass and rim land.

In the post-GST scenario, manufactured goods attract GST while inputs of petroleum products used in the manufacturing attract VAT and, therefore, it would lead to cascading of taxes.
