Diana had become too big a character to be owned merely by the British monarchy, her lagacy is owned by the world too because she readily identified with popular causes.

"approved policy level interventions to further improve investors’ confidence including repatriation of profits, strengthening domestic dispute resolution mechanism, infrastructural and human resource development and speedy operationalisation of EXIM Bank" ...and "committee reviewed and appreciated the progress on privatisation of the state-owned-enterprises and directed to keep the process at fast pace." Nothing has been done ACTUALLY in 3 months and already congratulating 'when its all said and done, more is said than done.!'
