    The entrepreneur who first led McDonald’s in India—then fought it

    Among the many legacies that Vikram Bakshi, the entrepreneur who exited a long-standing, precarious partnership with McDonald’s last week, leaves behind, is the Indianisation of the American burger chain. Bakshi, who opened the world’s first beefless McDonald’s outlet in south Delhi in 1996, had aced the art of “cultural correctness.” With innovations like the McAloo Tikki burger, made from potatoes and peas, to no-pork menus, McDonald’s is a global brand fine-tuned for India. Connaught Plaza Restaurants Limited (CPRL, which was, until last week, a 50:50 joint venture (JV) between Bakshi and McDonald’s India Private, now operates 169 outlets in the north and east of the country.

    Canadian dollar dips as oil prices slide on record U.S. production

    The Canadian dollar weakened against its U.S. counterpart on Thursday as oil prices fell, but the currency traded in a narrow range after pulling back from an eight-day high reached during Wednesday's session. The price of oil, one of Canada's major exports, was pressured by record U.S. crude production that led to a surge in inventories. U.S. crude oil futures were down 2.50% at $62.01 a barrel.

    Pakistan polio vaccine teams on edge after fatal attacks

    Polio workers across Pakistan were told to remain vigilant Thursday after multiple attacks on vaccination teams killed at least three people this week during an ongoing push to eradicate the disease from the restive country. The latest victim, a polio worker, was shot in southwestern Balochistan province Thursday morning, following separate attacks targeting health workers in the country’s northwest earlier this week that left two police officers dead. "The attack has taken place in a remote area, and we have received reports that one female polio worker has been killed," Attaullah Shah, a district police chief, told AFP, saying a second health worker was also critically injured in the attack.

    An emerging crisis in China could give US the upper hand in trade talks

    China, which is home to about half of the world's pig population, has been ravaged by an outbreak of African swine flu recently, a virus for which there is no cure or vaccine. This could lead to higher hog prices, which could force China to make concessions in its negotiations with the U.S., says Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Ross Gilardi. China's worsening African swine flu crisis could give the U.S. an edge over China as the two countries try to hammer out a trade agreement, an analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch said Tuesday.

    China producer inflation picks up for first time in nine months, eases deflation worries

    China's factory-gate inflation picked up for the first time in nine months in March, lifted by price rises in global commodities as well as signs that government efforts to boost the economy may be putting a floor under domestic demand. Consumer inflation also quickened, jumping to the highest since October 2018 as pork prices soared due to a growing epidemic of swine fever, official data showed on Thursday. China's producer price index (PPI) in March rose 0.4 percent from a year earlier, driven largely by rapid rises in oil and gas prices, and advancing from a 0.1 percent increase in February, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said.

    Commodity prices, investment poised to extend upswing

    A rebound in commodities prices and investment is poised to extend in coming months as the sector gets its traditional boost during the final stages of the global economic cycle along with other drivers. While some investors worry about a possible recession, commodities are due to benefit from an expected U.S.-China trade deal, tightening oil supply and potential short-covering in beaten-down U.S. grain futures. The 19-commodity Thomson Reuters/Core Commodity CRB Index, which has rebounded 10 percent from an 18-month low touched at the end of last year, should also get further support from easier monetary policy that has lifted all financial markets, analysts and traders said.

    U.S. Customs details China pork seizure; importers could pay fine

    U.S. border agents said they have seized 1 million pounds (453,592 kg) of food products from China this month, rather than 1 million pounds of pork as they had previously announced, as they work to keep out African swine fever. The containers seized also had noodles and tea bags that were used to facilitate the unlawful import of pork products, Anthony Bucci, spokesman for Customs Border and Protection, said this week. The previous week the agency said it had seized 1 million pounds of pork.
