Qatar’s real GDP expanded at a buoyant 5.6% (year-on-year) in the last three months of 2013, spurred by double-digit growth in construction, wholesale trade and hospitality, and financial, real estate, and business services, according to figures released by the Ministry of Development Planning and Statistics (MDPS). For 2013 as a whole, real GDP grew 6.5%, in line with QNB Group’s forecast (see Qatar Economic Insight report). QNB Group expects real GDP growth to accelerate to 6.8% in 2014 as the implementation of large infrastructure projects and higher population continue to drive double-digit growth in the non-hydrocarbon sector. The growth figures for the fourth quarter of 2013 confirm the continued process of economic diversification of Qatar’s economy away from its traditional role as a hydrocarbon exporter toward a manufacturing and services hub. The oil and gas sector contracted by 1.1% year-on-year in 4Q2013, reflecting a fall in oil production, the temporary halt of a number of LNG trains for maintenance, as well as the moratorium on further exploration of the North Field. At the same time, wholesale trade, hotels and restaurants was the fastest growing sector (19.3% year-on- year), predominantly on the back of the double-digit increase in population. Financial, real estate, and business services was the Overall Activity Buy %* Sell %* Net (QR) Qatari 63.53% 72.58% (94,454,552.18) Non-Qatari 36.48% 27.42% 94,454,552.18
  3. 3. Page 3 of 5 second fastest growing sector (18.1% year-on-year) as banking intermediation accelerated and real estate services were boosted by the growing population. Construction activity expanded by 15.0% year-on-year as Qatar’s infrastructure investment program is gathering momentum. (QNB Group, Ministry of Development Planning and Statistics, Gulf- Times.com)  QCB auctions t-bills worth QR4bn – Qatar Central Bank (QCB) auctioned t-bills worth QR4bn, for which it received bids totaling QR12.6bn.

(QCB)  LR2 to enhance condensate refining capacity in 2016 – HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani laid the foundation stone for the new Laffan Refinery (LR2) expansion project at Ras Laffan, which will effectively double Qatar’s condensate refining capacity. Being built at an estimated cost of QR5.5bn, the LR2 project will raise capacity to 300,000 bpd after its completion in 2016. LR2 is a JV among Qatar Petroleum (QP), Total, Idemitsu, Cosmo, Marubeni and Mitsui, with QP holding an 84% stake and Total holding 10%. As in the case of LR1, LR2 will also be operated by Qatargas and will process 146,000 barrels per stream day (bpsd) of condensate feedstock. Both LR1 and LR2 combined will make the Ras Laffan facility the largest condensate refinery in the world. Upon completion of LR2, Qatar will have the capacity to process nearly 40% of the condensate from the North Field into high quality products.

The Group CEO Ali al-Obaidly said that the housing project, which is being built in partnership with SAK Holding Group, will be offered for the mass market and will be completed in stages. He said the project assumes significance against the backdrop of increasing expatriate population in view of the mammoth projects being rolled out to upgrade the country’s infrastructure ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Moreover, ERES plans to acquire two more domestic companies as part of its strategy to diversify its investment portfolio. Meanwhile, ERES’ shareholders approved the distribution of 3.1% cash dividend. (Gulf-Times.com)  Barwa Bank was IMLA for ERES’ 1st tranche of $500mn syndication – Barwa Bank was the initial mandated lead arranger (IMLA) for Ezdan Holding Group’s (ERES) first tranche of its $500mn debut syndication, which was closed recently. In late 2013, ERES took on a new direction by looking to strategically diversify its business. ERES’ CEO Ali Al-Obaidly said, aside from being the first 100% Islamic finance transaction internationally syndicated for a Qatari corporate and led by a Qatari bank, the response to the syndication shows a wide acceptance of the company’s new business direction. (Gulf- Times.com)  QTA: Qatar tourism grows further in 2013 – According to the Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA), the tourism sector in Qatar surged in 2013 as the country welcomed more than 1.3mn visitors in 2013 as compared to 1.2mn in 2012. The full-year figures showed that the country’s tourism industry has continued its upward trajectory, benefiting from new investments and promotion. QTA stated that the sector is on track to reach growth targets set out in the Qatar National Tourism Sector Strategy.

(QE) International  Reuters: Solid US job growth expected for March as winter fades – Job growth in the US is likely to have accelerated in March 2014 as the winter's gloom started to lift, providing the strongest signal yet that economic growth was shifting into higher gear. According to a Reuters poll of economists, non- farm payrolls probably increased by 200,000, which is the largest gain in four months. Hiring advanced by 175,000 jobs in February and the unemployment rate is expected to have dropped to 6.6%. The anticipated gain in employment would take job growth back near the 204,000 monthly average that prevailed during the first 11 months of 2013. (Reuters)  Japan firms see inflation taking root in boost to BoJ – Japanese companies forecasted that price gains will be sustained over the next five years, indicating confidence in Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s bid to end deflation. The Bank of Japan (BoJ) said inflation will grow up to 1.7% in 3 years time after rising 1.5% over the next 12 months. Rising inflation expectations were the strongest among small companies that employ more than two-thirds of Japan’s workers and are feeling a crunch from a tightening labor market. The progress in shaking off deflationary malaise could reduce the chances of additional monetary stimulus and fuel debate on how to manage an economy with sustained price gains. (Bloomberg)  ECB finds no deflation as recovery gains – The European Central Bank’s (ECB) Vice President Vitor Constancio said the Eurozone is likely to avoid outright deflation as a soft economic recovery gradually reduces spare capacity in the economy. Constancio said the prospects for inflation are a cause for concern, after figures showed Eurozone’s inflation had slowed in March to 0.5%, the lowest level in more than four years. The Frankfurt-based central bank will be soon have its monthly monetary-policy meeting against a backdrop of improving economic data with gains in prices lagging behind. ECB President Mario Draghi has predicted that the recovery will eventually push inflation toward the ECB’s target of around 2%. (Bloomberg) Regional  OPEC output falls due to Iraqi exports setback, African outages – The OPEC’s oil output fell in March 2014 to its lowest since December, as Iraq’s oil revival suffered a setback and outages cut the output from African producers. According to the survey based on shipping data and information from oil company sources, supply from the OPEC averaged at 29.72mn bpd, down from a revised 30.06mn bpd in February. A drop in Iraq’s northern region exports, oilfield maintenance in Angola and further unrest in Libya outweighed the extra volumes from Saudi Arabia, Nigeria and a small rise in Iranian supplies. The survey highlights the impact of unrest and outages on supply from the group which pumps one-third of the world’s oil. (Gulf- Times.com)
