India Update

10th December 2005

Employees of a public mining company are accused of selling explosives to "terrorists". One steel company claims that those it's likely to displace are happy with its plans. Another boldly goes where none of its compatriots have gone before. The world's biggest cement maker appears to be at odds with its hosts. The country's central government welcomes cooperation with its chief rival, while a state leader opens his arms - and the resources of his tribal state - to the same competitors.

It's all in a day (or at least a fortnight)'s work for India's mining promoters.
