(Gulf-Times.com) International  US surprises oil market with sale from strategic reserves – The United States will hold the first test sale of crude oil from its emergency oil stockpile held since 1990, offering a modest 5mn barrels in what some observers saw as a subtle message to oil exporter, Russia. The US Energy Department said the test sale had been planned for months, which has been timed to meet demand from refiners coming out of annual maintenance cycles. However, oil traders noted that Russia's effort to take over the Crimea region from Ukraine has prompted calls for use of booming US energy resources to relieve Europe‟s dependence on Russian natural gas. Oil prices dipped to their lowest levels in a month after news of the test sale, which closes in two days. US Officials said the release would ensure that oil stored in vast salt caverns could still reach local refiners affected by recent changes in pipeline infrastructure. (Reuters)  Reuters: British economy set to grow fastest among G7 – Britain's economy will grow faster than any other G7 nation in coming quarters, but the Bank of England (BoE) will not raise interest rates until next year to avoid choking off the recovery. A Reuters poll of over 50 economists suggested that Britain's GDP will grow 0.6% every quarter through to September 2015. Based on these forecasts, Britain's economy is set to reach its pre- crisis level by the end of June and be the fastest growing among the group of seven (G7) major industrialized nations. Britain's economy will expand 2.7% this year and 2.4% in 2015 and 2016, similar to forecasts made by the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD). The Eurozone economy, Britain's main trading partner, is expected to grow by just 1.1% this year and 1.4% in 2015, with any deterioration in that growth becoming a key risk for Britain's growth. (Reuters)  Germany sees balanced budget from 2015 – German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble unveiled plans to achieve a consistently balanced budget from 2015, the first time that the country will be spending less than its revenue intake since 1969. Schaeuble stated that the government wants to go out of this legislative period without any new budgetary debt. Germany will run up only a small public deficit of €6.5bn in 2014 – its smallest in 40 years – down from €22.1bn in 2013. However, Schaeuble said the country‟s budget will be balanced from next year at least until 2018 without taking any debt. (ET)  OPEC raises 2014 global oil demand view – OPEC said the global oil demand will increase more than expected in 2014, raising its prediction for a second straight month as economic growth picks up in Europe and the US. The OPEC‟s view on oil demand growth is in contrast with that of the US, which has cut its forecast. In a monthly report, the OPEC stated that global demand will rise by 1.14mn bpd this year, up 50,000 bpd from its previous forecast. The group also raised its projection for global demand for OPEC's crude in 2014. The OPEC cited further signs of strong oil demand in the world's top consumer, the US, as well as a stabilizing rate of demand contraction in Europe – where oil consumption has been held back for years by weak economies. (Reuters)  Italy presents sweeping tax cuts, plans to raise deficit goal – Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi presented a sweeping package of tax cuts, saying they can help in reviving the Eurozone's third largest economy without breaking the EU budget deficit limits. Renzi said income tax would be reduced by a total of €10bn annually for 10mn low and middle income workers from May 1. He further added that the cuts will be financed by reductions in the central government spending, extra borrowing and by resources freed up thanks to the recent fall in Italy's borrowing costs. (Reuters) Regional  Saudi Arabia poised for S&P upgrade – Saudi Arabia is poised for a sovereign upgrade from Standard & Poor‟s (S&P) as central bank reserves of OPEC‟s biggest member swelled the most in the last five years, according to some financial institutions, such as, Credit Agricole Private Banking, Commerzbank and Riyadh-based MASIC. Credit default swaps for Saudi Arabia, rated AA- at S&P, stood at 63 basis points on March 11. The dollar-denominated debt from Saudi Electricity Company to Saudi Basic Industries Corp. rose after Fitch Ratings upgraded the country on March 7.
