" 'Moment, not momentum' Suu Kyi made a brief push on the economy in September, courting investors during a visit to the United States where she oversaw the cancellation of Washington's economic sanctions on the country, while moving to finalize a long-awaited investment law.

This has meant approvals for projects from overseas in the 11 months to February stood at just $6 billion, compared with almost $9.5 billion in the full fiscal year to March 2016, government data show. The World Bank says gross domestic product growth will fall to 6.

No one doubts that Majd Oweida, 23, is brilliant, but it is what he did with his brilliance that is a source of contention between his parents who are advocating for his release from an Israeli prison, and Israel ’ s security service who have accused him of hacking their drones for Islamic Jihad. I tracked down a hacker and tried to follow up with Hamas and Islamic Jihad. None of them claimed Majd, a local hero of sorts, a Palestinian robot designer and talent scout of the popular programPalestinians Got Talent. ” In February Majd was sentenced to nine years in prison for spying on the Israeli military for a terrorist organization, Islamic Jihad.

They claim Majd was tortured into making a false confession, and Palestinian human rights groups have agreed.

What does it offer? At present the bank only offers savings accounts, but its low overheads mean it has been able to pay interest rates that have propelled it straight to the top of the best buy tables. As a result savers, desperate for a half-decent return on their cash, have quickly abandoned their old banking habits in order to download the app and open an account. But the stampede of new customers has left the bank having to cut rates to reduce the inflow of money. “After breaking the 2% interest barrier for a one-year bond in February Atom Bank cut it twice in a week, to 1.8 per cent and then 1.6 per cent,” reports The Times . In just 24 hours On 9 March, the last day on which people could sign up for its market-leading one-year bond before the rate fell , the bank gained 5,000 new customers. It’s an astonishing figure, especially when you consider that, “13 of Britain’s 44 building societies have fewer than 20,000 customers,” says Amelia Murray in The Telegraph .
