He said that after the ownership change, the airline plans to publish its 2013 financial results before the third quarter of the year. Meanwhile, Al-Baker said that the national airline has placed orders for 13 A380s with the first Airbus A380-800 aircraft to arrive in early June 2014.

(Bloomberg)  Turkish Airlines sees 30% growth in 2013 passenger traffic in Qatar – Turkish Airlines has seen a 30% growth in passenger traffic in Qatar during 2013 as compared to 2012. The national carrier of Turkey has registered nearly 26% YoY growth in passenger traffic from the Middle East in 2013. The airline recorded a 22% YoY growth in passenger traffic in Dubai; 43% in Abu Dhabi and 35% in Kuwait. Further, the Turkish national carrier said it eyes significant growth from the region in 2014. ( International  Fed: US banks ease commercial loan policies on strong credit demand – According to a Federal Reserve survey, banks in the US have eased their policies for loans to businesses during 1Q2014 amid stronger demand for credit. The Fed stated that banks have reported easier standards for households both on consumer credit card and auto loans. The central bank surveyed 74 domestic banks and 23 US units of foreign banks in April. The Fed said every domestic bank that reported easing terms on commercial and industrial loans cited more-aggressive competition from other banks or non-bank lenders as an important reason. Record lending by US banks is helping the economy rebound from a lull brought on by the unusually harsh winter. Meanwhile, the Federal Open Market Committee said the expansion is gaining strength as it continued to taper the monthly pace of bond purchases. (Bloomberg)  Eurozone agrees on direct bank recapitalization in 2015 – The Chairman of Eurozone finance ministers, Jeroen Dijsselbloem said the Eurozone's bailout fund, the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) could directly invest in a troubled European bank next year, after 8% of the bank's total liabilities are written off. Earlier in 2012, the bloc's leaders had agreed that the ESM must have the option to directly buy stakes in a troubled bank to break the doom loop that binds indebted governments to the unstable banks they are trying to prop up. Dijsselbloem said that finance ministers agreed the ESM should be able to invest in banks next year after the option of raising money from private investors or the government has failed. Dijsselbloem said that a final proposal has been placed on the table, which can be taken up before the next regular meeting on June 19. The proposal on direct recapitalization foresees a bail- in of 8% of total liabilities in 2015 and the use of national resolution funds, up to 2015 target levels. This means the direct investment of the Eurozone bailout fund in a troubled bank would be a last-resort measure after all other options were exhausted. (Reuters)  China's trade situation to improve after May – The Chinese commerce ministry stated that the country’s overall trade is likely to gain momentum after May 2014, when high base effects fade off and the data more accurately reflects the underlying picture. The ministry said in its quarterly report on foreign trade, external trade is in a better shape this year than the previous year, although uncertainties continue to weigh on exports. Demand from emerging markets was constrained due to slower growth, while consumption from developed economies was also relatively soft. China's exports unexpectedly fell for the second straight month in March and import growth dropped sharply, intensifying concerns about weak manufacturing and slowing GDP growth. Analysts have attributed the weak trade figures partly to an inflated comparison base with last year due to a rash of fake invoicing of exports to beat foreign exchange restrictions. The authorities have cracked down on such activities since May 2013. (Reuters) Regional  ACC plans to float units of Alawwal Fund – The Saudi Capital Market Authority (CMA) has approved Alawwal Capital Company’s (ACC) plans to float units of Alawwal Fund for Food & Healthcare for public subscription. The fund will invest in a variety of shares belonging to outstanding companies operating in food and healthcare industries that are listed on Gulf stock markets. (  KSA's trade-hospitality sector holds most positive outlook for 2Q2014 – According to the 2Q2014 Business Optimism Index (BOI) report by the National Commercial Bank (NCB) and Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), the composite BOI for the non- hydrocarbon sector has posted a modest upswing of three points from 1Q2014 to stand at 50 in 2Q2014. This is primarily due to higher optimism on sales volumes, new orders and profitability. After reaching a two-year high to reach 50 in 1Q2014, the BOI for the hydrocarbon sector tracked sideways to 49 in 2Q2014. The trade & hospitality sector holds the most positive outlook among all the non-hydrocarbon sectors this quarter due to improvement in expectations on all parameters. 53% of hydrocarbon firms and 62% of non-hydrocarbon firms do not foresee any obstacles for their business operations in 2Q2014, while the remaining firms view competition, government regulations and availability of skilled labor as important challenges.. (  Tadawul deposits SPM's bonus shares – The Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul) announced the addition of Saudi Paper Manufacturing Company's (SPM) bonus shares into its investor portfolios.

(Tadawul)  Reuters: Gold industry shifts east as Dubai plans huge refinery, spot contract – Reuters stated that growth in demand for the precious metal gold is shifting east to Asia's fast-growing economies, but key industry activities such as refining and trade clearing still remain dominated by Europe and the US. The $60mn refinery being built by Kaloti Precious Metals the outskirts of Dubai is part of efforts to change that pattern, along with the plan by the Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange to introduce a spot gold contract in June 2014. When completed in 2015, the gold refinery will be one of the world's biggest that will help to alter the balance of power in the global gold industry.
