    COVID-19 Update:

    Total COVID-19 confirmed cases worldwide stood at 23,06,19,562 with 47,29,061 deaths. India reported 3,00,162 active cases of COVID-19 infection and 4,46,368 deaths while 3,28,48,273 patients have been discharged, according to the data from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India.

    A total of 84,09,03,125 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in the country so far, with over 72.01 lakh doses being given yesterday, according to the Co-WIN dashboard.


    The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das said that there are signs that the world is emerging from the shadow of coronavirus. While delivering the keynote address at the 48th National Management Convention of the All India Management Association, Das said the time is right to plan for an economy that is stronger, more inclusive and sustainable.

    Stating that the pandemic has provided a new impetus to technology-driven companies such as fintech, edtech and health tech, RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das said the forces of 'creative destruction' are expected to boost productivity by encouraging greater competition, dynamism and innovation in several sectors of the economy.

    Talking about the achievements of India's manufacturing sector, Das said the country has turned from being an importer to an exporter of mobile phones. He said the trend is likely to spill over to other sectors also; enhancing India's share in the Global Value Chain and increasing the competitiveness of India's large and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises.

    However, warning of uneven global recovery, the RBI Governor said multilateralism will lose credibility if it fails to ensure equitable access to vaccines across countries. He added that securing the health and immunity of the poor would mean a great leap towards inclusive growth.

    Global Markets:

    European stocks declined across the board on Friday, 24 September 2021, as investors reacted to central bank policy decisions and monitor developments surrounding China Evergrande Group.

    Meanwhile, the Bank of England on Thursday maintained its stimulus amount and record-low interest rate, even as it warned that UK annual inflation would top four percent this year. The BoE 's nine-strong monetary policy committee (MPC) voted unanimously to hold its key borrowing cost at 0.1%. Policymakers reportedly voted 7-2 in favour of keeping its so-called quantitative easing stimulus at almost £900 billion ($1.2 trillion, 1.0 trillion euros).

    The European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde told the media that she believes Europe's direct exposure to the embattled Chinese property company Evergrande would be “limited.”

    Most Asian stocks declined on Friday. Investors breathed a sigh of relief as concerns over China Evergrande's debt woes receded somewhat. It, however, remains unclear if and how the developer will pay the more than $300 billion of liabilities that it owes.

    U.S. stocks rallied on Thursday as they staged a two-day relief rally after the Federal Reserve signaled no imminent removal of its ultra-easy monetary policy. Investors also bet that the debt crisis of China's real estate giant Evergrande wouldn't trigger a ripple effect across global markets.
