An End to Internet Freedom
What was seen as the worst-case scenario for internet freedom in the country has taken place. The National Assembly approved the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Bill 2015, leaving the Senate as the only thing that now stands in the way of this bill being turned into law. When the government first announced that a new bill to prevent cybercrime was in the pipeline, experts thought PML-N was attempting to get ahead of a problem before it became major. Cybercrime and online harassment have only just begun to surface in Pakistan over the past five to seven years. With a growing population of internet users, which currently stands around 20 million, cybercrime was an expected eventuality. However, the government’s proposed solution mocks the initial optimism and does not seem to be targeted at those who harass others through the internet, but instead at any form of dissent against the government.

Internet Censorship, Here and Over There
Uproar this year over an “Internet Kill Switch” bill has largely subsided because the legislation has stalled in the Senate. The summer controversy focused on a proposed presidential power to declare a national emergency and shut down parts of the Web dealing with “critical infrastructure,” for up to four weeks — which under a willing White House legal adviser, critics said, might lead to Chinese-style Web censorship for political enemies. Actually, the bill was never so specific. Sen. Joe Lieberman and its other sponsors in the Senate have argued the Protecting Cyberspace As a National Asset Act has no “kill switch” provision, only a sort of emergency-brake feature for the president in case of cyberwar. Or something. “What authority the government would have is not laid out at all in the law,” said Michelle Richardson, an ACLU lawyer tasked with tracking the bill. Adam Cohen was right last month when he argued in Time that the bill’s language had to be far more precise before people start to freak out (on one hand) or Congress allows it to become law (on the other).

Lending to SMEs and Entrepreneurs Is Improving, but More Diverse Forms of Financing Are Needed
Financing for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) has turned the corner from the downswing seen during the global financial crisis, but overall credit conditions remain challenging and access to external finance continues to be much tighter for SMEs than larger firms, according to a new OECD report. Financing SMEs and Entrepreneurs 2016: An OECD Scoreboard underlines that SMEs remain over-reliant on bank financing and points out the need for a diversification of financing sources and instruments. The Scoreboard provides comprehensive data on debt, equity, asset-based finance, solvency and the framework conditions for SMEs and entrepreneurs, along with an overview of policy measures to ease SMEs’ access to finance in 37 countries. The OECD presented the report to G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors in Washington as part of wider discussions on developing policies to boost diversification of financing instruments, a key priority of China’s G20 Presidency.
