India and Australia are expected to sign a pact for defense logistics. Both countries share a mutual concern related to the stability of the Indo-Pacific region. The Australian Defense White Paper (ADWP), 2016 mentions that the seas and airspace surrounding the region are becoming a cause for concern, in particular China’s sudden militaristic presence and dominance.


The Economic Times states, “India and Australia have stepped up bilateral relations to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership and have concluded nine arrangements including Mutual Logistics Support for their militaries amid China’s aggression in the Indo-Pacific region.”

While addressing the Australian Parliament, Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi expressed his concerns about the region and emphasized the importance of safety. Both India and Australia share similar opinions about the geopolitical situation in the area and are figuring out how to best support one another’s interests. In this recent defense pact, both countries will benefit greatly, as outlined in this article.

The ADWP communicates the primary objectives of the vital rules of calm resolution, law, directness, solving disputes peacefully in congruence with International Law. It also articulates the liberty of freedom associated with navigation and overflight defense. The Defense Logistic Pact works to extend the freedom of navigation, and unimpeded commerce transactions between the two regions. It also involves a peaceful and calm resolution of conflicts.

This pact will bring both governments together and support their commercial industries which will inevitably strengthen both economies. For the last decade, India has built strong diplomatic ties with the U.S. and both the countries have benefitted with security and a shared network of infrastructure. Australia shares a similar bond with the U.S., which helps to further strengthen ties between India and Australia.

This defense pact ensures both nations have access to superior military hardware.

In relation to China, both India and Australia have been walking a political tightrope in recent months, this pact is set to ensure better international relations between all the three nations.

Both India and Australia share several multilateral forums, the East Asia Summit (EAS), Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA), ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) to name a few. This defense pact is yet another sign of political cohesion between both nations.

The pact also emphasizes the importance of using adequate logistics technology, including key A.I, robotics, and 3pl software, to help support the supply chain throughout the region. Allowing both countries to better coordinate shipping and tracking of crucial military supplies.

Neither Australia nor India has ever jeopardized economic or political investment in neighboring countries. However, recently, China’s gradual deployment in the Indian Ocean has initiated a major challenge for both nations.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has finally started rolling out end-to-end encrypted chat backups for iOS and Android users globally. With the new update, if a user chooses to back up his chat history with end-to-end encryption, it will be accessible only to him, and no one will be able to unlock the backup. Neither WhatsApp nor the backup service provider will be able to access their end-to-end encryption backup.
"With end-to-end encrypted backups, no other messaging service at WhatsApp's scale will provide this level of security for people's messages -- from sending and transit, to receiving and storing in the cloud," the company said in a post. The feature will be rolling out "slowly" for people on the latest version of the app.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

Invest in a few accent decor pieces - a lamp, wall art, decor for a centre table that are cohesive and work well together in the theme of your room as opposed to having numerous things that do not look like they belong together.

India may not see a billion smartphone users even by the end of this decade

India may not see a billion smartphone users even by the end of this decade and there are seven key challenges to achieve 100 per cent smartphone penetration, according to a new report. With the shrinking addressable base for smartphones, India is likely to have 887.4 million smartphone users by 2030, said the report by Gurugram-based market intelligence firm techARC.

The new smartphone user acquisition has been on a decline since 2018, after 4G drove switch to smartphones as it ushered several new use cases and forced feature phone users to upgrade. This, however, is not the case with 5G, which can substantially bring out a new use case for the mobile users compelling the feature phone users to move to a smartphone.

Affordability is the first concern even if users would discover their own use cases. "This is on account of both - investment in the device and the recurring data cost. Even to own a device, it's a substantial increase in the outlay for around 200-250 million users who cannot spent more than Rs 1,500 on a mobile device," said Faisal Kawoosa, Founder and Chief Analyst, techARC.
