Preparations underway in J&K for G20 Summit

The theme of the G20 Summit is ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’. The Summit is being seen as a historic opportunity that could help in taking the culture, economy and sociology of Jammu and Kashmir to the global level. The Jammu and Kashmir government has also constituted a high-level committee to oversee the preparations for the G20 summit. The chairmanship of the 16-member committee has been given to the Additional Chief Secretary, Home Department, in which the remaining 15 members of this 16-member high-level committee, formed under the chairmanship of Financial Commissioner (Additional Chief Secretary), Home Department, Rajkumar Goyal, include Director General of Police Jammu and Kashmir Dilbagh Singh, IPS), Principal Secretary to Government for Jal Shakti Department Shalin Kabra (IAS) among others.

Amazon extends last year's job cuts to 18,000
The giant retailer said it had "hired rapidly" over the past few years. It also cited the "uncertain economy" as a reason for its latest round of job cuts. Giant retailer Amazon announced on Wednesday it was cutting 18,000 jobs, as part of a previously announced layoff wave. The company's Chief Executive Andy Jassy said in a public staff note that annual planning "has been more difficult given the uncertain economy and that we've hired rapidly over the last several years." The 18,000 layoffs include both the recent ones and the ones previously announced in November. They will mostly impact the company's e-commerce services such as Amazon Fresh and Amazon Go, as well as the human resources organizations. Amazon has over 1.5 million employees, making it the second largest private employer in the US, after Walmart. Biggest cuts in company history The cuts, rolling since November last year, are considered the biggest in the company since it launched in 1994. As many strong economies flirted with recession and battled unusually high inflation in 2022, several tech companies struggled to sustain their businesses. That contrasts a surge in revenues they achieved during the pandemic. The social media giant Meta, which runs Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp, announced in November last year that it was laying off 13% of its workforce. However, the Reuters news agency suggested that Amazon's job cuts surpassed that of other tech giants, Meta included. Analysts see the cuts as the end of a so-called tech boom which has reigned over the last decade.
