An important state election in Himachal Pradesh and the electoral campaign in Gujarat – the votes take place in December and the results for both states will be declared on the 18th of December - will determine the course of Indian domestic politics for 2018/19. In the new chapter „Economic Developments“, the focus is on „buisiness sentiments“ and the impact of the General Service Tax. Modi's tour to the Phillippines and India's relations with Afghanistan are the main focus in the regional and wider international relations.
