Facebook Defends Giving DeviceMakers Access To Users Data For Years

Regis Duvignau/ReutersFacebook says it disagrees with how The New York Times is presenting data-sharing deals it has used for at least 10 years. Here, a man reads security parameters on his phone in front of a Facebook logo in Bordeaux, southwestern France.Facing new accusations about how it handles users’ data, Facebook says “we disagree” with reports that the company exposed a wealth of private information to other tech giants as part of its plan to become ubiquitous on mobile devices.Facebook says it made deals with about 60 companies, from Apple, Amazon and Blackberry to HTC, Microsoft and Samsung, to “recreate Facebook-like experiences” on their devices.The data-sharing partnerships, made a decade ago, were highlighted by The New York Times, which reports that in some cases, “device makers could retrieve personal information even from users’ friends who believed they had barred any sharing.”Facebook denies that claim, issuing a statement saying that information from users’ contacts “was only accessible on devices when people made a decision to share their information with those friends.”We think it’s important to note we launched device-integrated APIs over 10 years ago to help get Facebook onto mobile devices. At the time there were no app stores and this was standard industry practice. Read more: https://t.co/d9J9Hnjv3U pic.twitter.com/ZN4zBMy2ak— Facebook (@facebook) June 4, 2018“We are not aware of any abuse by these companies,” Facebook adds.The new accusations center on Facebook’s use of special APIs — application programming interfaces — that it created to allow users’ data and profile information to be integrated into devices.Facebook says it also shared the data so that users of Apple, Samsung and other devices could get notifications, add friends and have the ability to like things online. But the Times says Facebook provided far-ranging access — and possibly broke rules in a 2011 consent decree with the Federal Trade Commission, in which Facebook agreed that its users’ data wouldn’t be shared with third parties without their consent.The data-sharing arrangements date from as early as 2008; most of them continue through to today, although Facebook began dismantling some of the deals in April — the same month its founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified about privacy protections and political propaganda in Congress.To test how much access was granted to a device, the Times says that when it recently had a reporter log in to his Facebook account on a Blackberry from 2013 (when the company still used its proprietary operating system), the device retrieved personal information about the reporter’s 500 friends. It also gathered “identifying information for nearly 295,000 Facebook users” by retrieving data on second-degree contacts, the newspaper said.That happened, the Times’ Michael LaForgia said via Twitter, despite having deleted the Facebook app from the phone. The data transfer was based on a connection the phone’s software was allowed to make, directly to Facebook’s information.Right away, and even though we had deleted the Facebook app from the phone, it started sucking down lots of my Facebook information. It pulled in my name and global user id — which can be synced up with all kinds of other, non-FB databases to get details about me.— Michael LaForgia (@laforgia_) June 4, 2018In response, Facebook said, “Contrary to claims by the New York Times, friends’ information, like photos, was only accessible on devices when people made a decision to share their information with those friends.”Many online companies use APIs — including NPR, which relies on them to distribute online stories to member stations. Here’s how we described it, back in 2013:“Think of an API as a side door that allows you to retrieve data from a guarded room. Once you’ve gained access, you’re able to share data with the owner of the API and use their data to suit your needs.”That data from NPR is meant to be public — unlike the majority of Facebook users, who don’t want their information broadly disseminated. In the case of the private APIs that Facebook supplied to the makers of phones, tablets, smart TVs, and other devices, the company’s VP of Product Partnerships, Ime Archibong, said in the company’s statement that it had “controlled them tightly.”The agreements required the third-party companies to use the information only for the intended purpose of integrating features into users’ devices, Facebook says.The first such data-sharing deal was struck more than 10 years ago, Facebook said in its statement, which describes the use of private APIs as part of its response to consumers’ migration to mobile devices. The deals were struck around the same time the first iPhone was introduced, and when Facebook launched its first mobile website.“At the time there were no app stores and this was standard industry practice,” Facebook said via Twitter.“This is very different from the public APIs used by third-party developers, like Aleksandr Kogan,” Archibong said on Monday, referring to the Cambridge University-affiliated researcher who is a key player in the Cambridge Analytica scandal.Kogan developed an app that required people to sign in using their Facebook accounts — and that then harvested data about those users and their friends, that was then used by Cambridge Analytica to develop psychological profiles of U.S. voters ahead of the 2016 presidential election.All of those things transpired despite Facebook’s stated privacy policies about how third-party developers could use and share users’ data.“When we heard back from Cambridge Analytica that they had told us that they weren’t using the data and deleted it, we considered it a closed case,” Zuckerberg said on Capitol Hill in April. “In retrospect, that was clearly a mistake. We shouldn’t have taken their word for it.”In March, the FTC confirmed that it is investigating the Cambridge Analytica case, with Tom Pahl, acting director of the FTC’s consumer protection bureau, citing substantial concerns about Facebook’s privacy practices.The FTC declined an email request to comment for this story.In its response to the Times article, Facebook says that with the current dominance of iOS and Android operating systems, it’s been “winding down” access of APIs. The company says it has already ended 22 of the partnerships.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. Share read more

Verizon 5G Broadband Will Include YouTube TV Apple TV in Four Initial

first_imgVerizon said specific details of the YouTube TV and Apple TV offers will be announced when 5G residential broadband service goes on sale. It’s likely that YouTube TV will be bundled for a limited time (e.g., one year).YouTube TV, Google’s internet-TV subscription service launched in the spring of 2017, is normally priced at $40 per month for a bundle of 60-plus channels, including including ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, and cable networks including TNT, TBS, CNN, ESPN, AMC and FX, and local sports networks from NBC Sports, Fox Sports, and NESN in select markets.The residential 5G wireless service from Verizon also will include an Apple TV 4K set-top, which provides access to dozens of streaming services — including Netflix and Amazon Prime Video — in addition to a wide range of movies and TV shows from iTunes.Verizon had been developing its own over-the-top delivered TV service but abandoned that plan in favor of working with other video providers, ultimately inking pacts with Google and Apple. Last month, Verizon shut down the Go90 free, ad-supported mobile-video service — after it failed to gain traction — and the company took a $658 million charge for the second quarter mainly related to the Go90 shutdown.At the same time, Verizon has bulked up its play for mobile sports content, inking a five-year deal with the NFL worth up to $2 billion for U.S. mobile rights and an expanded pact with the NBA to offer out-of-market live-game subscriptions. Verizon plans to push live sports content through its Oath properties, including Yahoo Sports, angling to make itself the go-to destination for watching sports on wireless devices.Vestberg, formerly Verizon’s CTO after serving as Ericsson’s chief executive, officially stepped into the CEO role at the teclo on Aug. 1, replacing Lowell McAdam. Industry observers viewed the appointment of longtime tech exec Vestberg as Verizon choosing to prioritize its wireless network business over a strategy built around original entertainment properties (as rival AT&T has done with the takeover of Time Warner). McAdam earlier this year told Wall Street that Verizon was “unequivocally” not pursuing any big media M&A deals. Popular on Variety YouTube TV service and Apple TV 4K set-tops will be included with Verizon’s initial 5G residential broadband launch in four cities — Sacramento, Los Angeles, Houston and Indianapolis — the telco announced. With the pacts, Verizon is looking to build a competitive edge in new 5G wireless technology by leading with video entertainment, delivered over the high-speed, low-latency networks.Verizon is on track to be the first wireless technology provider to deploy 5G residential broadband service in the U.S. later this year, which will provide 20-50 times the bandwidth of 4G LTE technology and be a credible replacement for wireline broadband. As mobile devices become available in early 2019, the company expects to be first American carrier to launch 5G mobile service.“We believe 5G will disrupt the entertainment industry further and are excited to provide our customers with the choice of the best network, the best content and the best partners,” Hans Vestberg, newly named CEO of Verizon, said in announcing the deals. McAdam last month telegraphed the telco’s strategy to team with OTT partners on 5G. “We’re not going to be owning content. We’re not going to be competing with other content providers,” he said in his earnings-call swan song July 24 discussing Verizon’s Q2 results. “We’re going to be their best partner from a distribution perspective.”On the same call, Vestberg also referenced the opportunity to strike content deals: “I see only opportunities when we go to 5G, when you can build to connectivity platforms and applications, and sort of define where you’re going to play in that or where you’re going to have partners.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The Stanley Parable demo A tour through a bizarre wholly unique experi

first_imgThe Stanley Parable started life as a Source mod that was originally released in 2011. The first-person exploration game was such a hit that its developers — Galactic Cafe — gave it an HD remake and filled it with new content. Since the new game recently released amidst Pokémania, you might’ve missed it. You also might have heard very strange things about the game, making you unsure if you wanted to spend time with The Stanley Parable.Considering this and hoping to draw in curious gamers, Galactic Cafe made a separate demo for the game. Rather than being a snippet from the full title, the demo is a completely unique, standalone piece of content. I played the demo, and was so amused that I compiled a tour through the content to let you know what you’re missing.The gallery does include spoilers, so beware, but just seeing different rooms and textures and objects and signs definitely won’t ruin the experience.The Stanley Parable is an extremely meta game, featuring a charming, antagonistic disembodied narrator — similar to Portal’s GLaDOS — that leads you through the game’s often lofty and hilarious messages. The demo itself has its own narrative with its own ending. It’s quite a brilliant way to go about drumming up interest in a game. Rather than spoiling the game’s experience with a brief, detached snippet of the final build’s gameplay, The Stanley Parable demo crafts a new piece of the game for you to play. “If you liked that, you’ll love this,” the demo suggests, reminding you that a much richer experience is only a click away.It’s tough to discuss The Stanley Parable, and though our screenshots don’t spoil the demo (or game) and aren’t in any particular chronological order, things that happen in the demo are surprising. So, if you’re on the fence about giving the game some time, check out the gallery and be convinced.If you’re definitely going to play the demo and game, we suggest two things: play them as soon as possible before the internet can spoil things, and don’t check out our gallery unless you’re extremely brave.Head on over to Steam and pick up the game today.

The Modern Day Revival of the Knights Templar – A New Order

first_imgThe United States may be a relatively young country, having been founded in 1776, but it has some ties with the Middle Ages. The Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem (SMOTJ) was founded in the 1960s in the United States, following in the footsteps of the Knights Templar, a Christian order dating back to the Crusades. After the First Crusade (1095-1099), several states known as the Crusader States were established to protect Christians on pilgrimage to Jerusalem, Britannica.com reports. In 1119, following a series of attacks by raiders to reclaim Jerusalem, a bunch of mostly French knights, under the leadership of Hugues de Payens decided to establish a Christian military order to help secure passage for the pilgrims. At least this was the official reason given for the creation of the Order.Taking of Jerusalem by the Crusaders by Emile Signol. A 19th century painting depicting the end of the Siege of Jerusalem on July 15, 1099, during the First CrusadeThus, was born the Order of the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and the Temple of Solomon. The Templars received the support of the King of Jerusalem at the time, Baldwin II, and set up their headquarters on Temple Mount, causing them to change their name to the Knights Templar, according to History.com.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsWith the help of prominent French abbot Bernard of Clairvaux, who most notably wrote In Praise of the New Knighthood, support for these warrior monks grew significantly. Clairvaux’s text defended the existence of the Order and helped convince many Christians of its importance.Saint Bernard of ClairvauxThis rise in influence eventually translated in gaining support from the Pope. In 1139, Innocent II issued a Papal Bull – an official letter from the Pope – that exempted the Templars from paying taxes and allowed them to build their own places of worship. Showing their great power and independence, they were also placed under the sole direct authority of the Pope himself.Take a closer look at the Knights Templar revival with this video:Over the course of the 12th and 13th centuries, the Templars fought across the Holy Land, and gained a reputation of fearless warriors, Britannica.com says. This greatly increased their influence and wealth: many Templars had gained estates and seniorities across European kingdoms such as France, Spain and England.As new chapters of the order were established all over Europe, the Templars established an important banking network, History.com says. Holding a significant part of Europe’s wealth, the Templars were at their most influential during the 12th century. However, with this great influence and power came a stronger European opposition, most particularly from the rival order of the Knights Hospitallers.Battle of Hattin. Illustration from Estoire d’EraclesAfter the Battle of Hattin in 1187, the armies led by Saladin had opened their way to regaining control of Jerusalem. The Templars remained in the Holy Land to protect the Crusader states during the course of the 13th century, with several attempts to regain control of the region. After the fall of Acre in 1291 however, the Crusaders had no foothold left in the Holy Land, and the Templars relocated to Paris.Having lost their original purpose to protect the Holy Land, and facing greater opposition to their wealth and power, the Templars were bound for destruction.The Seige of Acre by Dominique Papety. The city fell to the Mamluks in 1291King Philip IV of France pressured Pope Clement V to disband the order. In 1307, Clement V issued the Papal Bull Vox In Execlso, which falsely accused many Templars of charges such as blasphemy, devil worship, indecency, and financial corruption. The order’s grand master Jacques De Molay was executed in 1314, marking the end of the original order of the Knights Templars.The modern-day Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem (SMOTJ) traces its origins to an organization named Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Hierosolymitani, a revived Templar organization which was granted chivalry status by French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte in 1805, Smithsonian Magazine reports.Reception for the council of Templar revivalist group The Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem in Cologne, Germany. Photo by Raimond Spekking / CC BY-SA 4.0The organization counts over 10,000 members worldwide, including 1,500 in the United States. While SMOTJ reenacts the traditions of the Knights Templar, its members do not see themselves as mere reenactors: they see themselves as emulators of the Medieval order with a mission to revive the mission and form of Christian traditions practiced by the Templars. They also make it clear on their website that they are not in any way associated with Freemasonry.Their two main missions, as stated on their website, are as follows: “Protecting Christians at Risk particularly in the Holy Land and the Middle East and Keeping the Road to Jerusalem open to all people as our own.”“The only thing we don’t do is fight,” Grand Treasurer of the Temple of Jerusalem Joe Auteri said to Smithsonian Mag. While the Order does not fight anymore, its mission remains to help Christians in the Holy Land. It most notably funds schools in the region, having raised $407,945 in 2017. Some of its members even serve as advisors to the United Nations, advocating for peace in the Middle East.Flow chart showing the various splits within the Templars since their formation in the 12th century. Photo by Vespercirrus CC BY-SA 4.0To avoid confusion with any other Templar revivalist group, The Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem has a legal advocate who registers the organization’s trademarks, in an effort to keep its own identity. Indeed, Smithsonian reports that many other Templar revivalist organizations exist around the world, yet none have the same legitimacy as the SMOTJ. In 2018 the organization celebrated 900 years of the Templars (1118-2018)Read another story from us: A Secret Knights Templar Tunnel that Remained Hidden for 700 YearsAs described on its website, The Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem bases itself off the traditions of the original Order of the Knights Templar to achieve what it describes as spiritual idealism. In the modern world, today’s Templars seek new ways to revive an old order, with peaceful ways to reach the old objective of pacifying the Holy Land.last_img read more

Singh Top News THE sound of qawwali and the beauty of poetry transcended many barriers of language and grammar at the ‘Rang-e-Rekhta’ hosted by the Rekhta Foundation Saturday evening at the Tagore Theatre The event an effort to promote Urdu is a tribute to the language its timelessness richness and versatility ‘Rang-e-Rekhta’ is an extension of Rekhta Foundation’s festival Jashn-e-Rekhta: Celebrating Urdu which is held in Delhi annually and celebrates the spirit and eloquence of Urdu language literature art and culture It was a cherishable evening for Chandigarh as it got the opportunity to witness a unique show There was a buzz in the house and the poets and organisers were overwhelmed by the response of Chandigarh towards the effort “From the entire Urdu world I want to thank Rekhta Foundation for reviving the Urdu mushaira This is such a resounding welcome a language something I have fought for my entire life” said renowned poet Prof Waseem Barelvi as he presented some of his best to the audience Some of the country’s most distinguished poets- Farhat Ehsas Manish Shukla Shams Tabreezi – set the mood for the evening as verse by verse they expressed the beauty of the language and their thoughts and emotions Love loneliness the many wonders of nature conflicts the universe and its many facets came alive in the language that exudes beauty and delicacy One of the highlights of the mushaira was the energy and poetry of 92-year-old Pundit Gulzar Dehlavi one of the living exponents of Urdu and Persian poetry who says it with pride and joy “Urdu zabaan meri jaagir hai” For someone who thinks speaks expresses in Urdu Dehlavi believes that the language can bridge many barriers “It was at the age of 8 that I began writing poetry and the language has been part of my being My father was a scholar who taught Urdu and Persian I wrote inqualaabi poetry against the British and was part of the movement for freedom I minced no words and was not afraid of anyone as my verses challenged the British their policies and their rule Aruna Asif Ali loved my nerve and I began to be a part of every jalsa of the Congress with Pandit Nehru appreciating the purity of my language and I even read out one of my creations on Independence Day in 1947 at the Ramlila Ground and dedicated the poem to the youth of the country” Dehlavi said as he went down memory lane and recited some of his poems Urdu he rues did not get the deserved attention it needed for its promotion after Independence He recalls how with the support of Maulana Azad he took out a science magazine in Urdu in 1975 ‘Science Ki Duniya’ The poet writes two hours daily attending mushairas across the country and his poetry today speaks of love romance beauty relationships “Not many want to hear classical poetry If you want to keep Urdu alive you have to keep the common people in mind No one can be alienated But even today I speak my mind against communal hatred and separatist policies But yes we need to be aware of cultural and language degradation” adds the poet in his trademark Indian topi and larger than life attitude Dehlavi is concerned about the fact that the Urdu script is dying “It’s the soul of the language we need to keep it alive and such platforms give the language a new lease of life” As the audience requested for more one of the poets aptly remarked “mushaira kabhi khatam nahin hota” So poetry encompasses us in varied ways Soothing the soul spreading the language of peace and love the Sari Brothers from Rajasthan mesmerized the audience with their powerful qawwalis “The great Sufis have blessed us and our music has both Persian and Indian influences” smiled Farid and Amin Sabri who learnt qawalli from their maternal grandfather and father and have been singing since the age of ten Qawalli they say is a form that takes us closer to the divine and is a spiritual experience transcending the boundaries of language and geography “We have performed all over the globe and audiences love the form of music And now technology helps them translate what we are singing as music has no language Through qawalli we seek the truth be it on stage at dargahs in film studios We make a special effort to reach out to the younger audience by explaining them the meaning of the words we are singing for we want to reach out to a wider audience” said the brothersadding that the different compositions by the Sufis reach the same God Many raags saaz phrases using Hindi Urdu Persia make this form so rich “We are taking the Sufi tradition forward and also the magic of Hindustani music It is a different experience to sing live and record for films but both have their own reach and impact” says Farid adding that they have sung for more than 70 films The brothers say they sing for the audience gauging their mood and preferences but always singing the praises of the divine an ode to Sufi saints and then of love sadness “There are many variations in language and music and that’s what make the qawwali timeless” For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Arita Sarkar | Mumbai | Published: February 5 2016

NewsWritten by Rashmi Rajput | Mumbai | Updated: December 24 2015 2:34 pm Hema’s ex- Husband Artist Chintan Upadhyay at her cremation ceremony in Santacruz (W) (Express Photo) Related News Investigations by the Mumbai police have pointed out that Harish Bhambani was not an unintended target in the conspiracy allegedly plotted by Chintan Upadhyay The bodies of Bhambhani and artist Hema Upadhyay were found wrapped in plastic sheets inside cardboard cartons dumped in a sewer in Kandivali on December 12 The police allege that Chintan knew the only person who would have pursued Hema’s murder had she been killed would have been Harish her lawyer WATCH VIDEO “It was on Bhambhani’s suggestion that Hema decided to appeal in the Bombay High Court against the adverse decision of the family court which ruled in Chintan’s favour Chintan was sure that if Hema went missing Bhambhani would suspect him and therefore decided to kill both of them” said an official The Bhambhanis saw Hema as a part of their family according to daughter Anita Hema was also a regular at Bhambhani’s residence in Matunga Five persons have been arrested in connection with the double murder and a search is on for two including Vidyadhar and a ‘mediator’ whose identity has not been revealed “As a part of the premeditated plan Chintan asked Vidyadhar to convince Hema that a ‘disgruntled servant’ who worked at Chintan’s Jaipur residence had collected ‘clinching evidence’ against him which would help her in the case Hearing this Hema would seek advice from Bhambhani and would not meet Vidyadhar alone Chintan was right in his assessment and Hema walked into his trap and decided to meet Vidyadhar only in presence of the lawyer When Vidyadhar communicated this to Chintan he was happy that his reading of her estranged wife was correct” said the official “The fact that co-accused arranged for two cartons and enough plastic sheets to wrap ‘two bodies’ corroborate that the plan was to kill the two and not only Hema” added the source The police however are trying to find why Chintan used to send cheques to Bhambhani and not Hema when she was the litigant “The last cheque of Rs 2 lakh was sent to Bhambhani on the day of the murder Ordinarily he should have sent the cheque to Hema but in this case he had sent it to Bhambhani We are still questioning him on that front” added the source The police are more or less certain that Chintan planned the murder owing to the acrimonious divorce with Hema Chintan arrested on Tuesday had promised to pay the absconding accused Vidyadhar Rajbhar Rs 10-15 lakh seven days after the murder sources added “While hatching the plan Chintan promised to pay the money seven days after the murder Vidyadhar agreed A sum of around Rs 15 lakh was promised which included waiving off Rs 6 lakhs that Vidyadhar owed Chintan for his father’s treatment Chintan had footed the medical bills of Vidyadhar’s father Vanshraj who was also a metal fabrication artist

With over 51 per cent of its population in the below-25 age groupit is unfortunate that Saudi Arabia has not been able to exploit its demographic dividend favourably It is also contradictory that this same countrywith such a great store of human capitalemploys around 95 per cent expatriates in its private sector A poor literacy ratecombined with the lack of adequate trainingtakes a huge toll on the countrys development The result is a high rate of unemployment 13 per cent The huge monetary loss incurred through foreign outward remittances 20 billion riyal annuallythe ill effects of the Arab Spring and the recurring economic crises go without saying In briefSaudi Arabia has justifiable reasons for its localisation policywhich we consider a disaster Howeverrecent statistics show that labour outflow from India to Saudi Arabia has consistently been larger than that to the UAE for the last five yearseven under these circumstances So whats the Nitaqat spree about Its simply a policy to revitalise an economy heavily dependent on foreign labourand is aimed at long-term stability Private sector firms are classified into different grades (excellentgreenyellow and red)based on the ratio of local citizens working in the establishment For fulfilling localisation requirementsthe company gets to maintain its non-Saudi workforce and acquire expatriates under threat at the red and yellow companies It also implies that if the company fails to speed up its localisation processthe foreign migrants position in the country becomes illegal and she is forced to leave after the expiry of her grace period That isif she is not absorbed by an excellent or green company by then On a positive notethese legal stipulations have given 14 lakh Indians a chance to regularise their jobseither by transferring their sponsorship or by amending their job titles This amounts to 50 per cent of our total workforce in the countrywhich is definitely good news and not to be forgotten for the sake of the 5 per cent jobs lost on Nitaqat grounds Kerala is the state that alone supplies 38 per cent foreign labour to Saudi Arabia As per the Kerala Migration Survey 2011 conducted by the CDSit has suffered a mere 2 per cent loss of jobswhich could be toleratedgiven the positive possibilities that could follow HistoricallyKerala has been at the top of the list of emigrants to the GCC But recent trends show a changing tendency The state no longer tops the listUttar Pradesh does The total number of workers from Kerala granted emigration clearance in 2012 is only 98178against 191341 from UP This needs serious consideration The big difference in the literacy rates of the north and the south in India necessitates proper governmental intervention to ensure safe and legal migration The UP emigrants lack of social networks in the GCCin contrast to the Keralitesalso poses a serious threat It is time we started exploiting the situation to make things cleaner Regulating recruitment agencies should be the first step to ensure migrants safety Its also important that these agencies be promotedas they provide job opportunities to a large share of the populationand thisof coursecannot be done by the government That the Kerala governments official recruitment agencythe Overseas Development and Employment Promotion Consultants (ODEPC)has been able to send only 10000 people abroad in the last 40 years underlines this statement It is also necessary that we create an environment conducive to potential migrants by bringing down the cost of the processproviding them pre-departure training and producing a financially literate population that can bring home the fullest benefits of migration Saudi Arabia is Indias fourth-largest trade partner and the 14th largest market for Indian goods The recent visits of country heads and bilateral agreements have strengthened tiesand it is important that we abide by the legalities involved India should make sure that its
