    District courts are not 'secondary', they are core of judicial system: Justice Oka

    Courts at the district and taluka level should not be considered `secondary' as they provide justice to the common people, Supreme Court judge Abhay S Oka has said. He was speaking after inaugurating the new building of the Bhiwandi magistrate court in Thane district on Wednesday. District and taluka courts play an important role in providing justice to common people, hence they are the core of the judicial system and should not be looked upon as "secondary courts", he said. Acknowledging that several good court buildings have been constructed in Maharashtra in the last ten years, Justice Oka said the state government should still try to provide better facilities which will ensure speedy delivery of justice.

    WTO cuts global trade forecast for 2023 to 1%

    The growth in world trade is expected to slow down to one per cent in 2023, due to global uncertainties, according to a WTO forecast. The World Trade Organization (WTO) has also projected a growth of 3.5 per cent in global trade this year, as against the April estimate of 3 per cent. World trade is expected to lose momentum in the second half of 2022 and remain subdued in 2023, as multiple shocks weigh on the global economy, the multi-lateral body has said in a statement. "WTO economists now predict global merchandise trade volumes will grow by 3.5 per cent in 2022 -- slightly better than the 3 per cent forecast in April. For 2023, however, they foresee a 1 per cent increase -- down sharply from the previous estimate of 3.4 per cent," it said.
