The bank’s net profit rose by 12.4% YoY in 1H2013 to QR270.7mn. ABQK’s net interest income increased by 30.7% YoY (+6.5% QoQ) to QR166.5mn in 2Q2013, while in 1H2013, it rose by 27.1% YoY to QR322.8mn. EPS stood at QR2.13 in 1H2013 as compared to QR2.02 in 1H2012. Total assets at the end of June 2013 stood at QR24.7bn over QR20.6bn in December 2012. Loans & advances rose by 13.1% YTD to QR15.9bn, while customer deposits were up by 25.5% YTD to QR17.5bn. (QE)  S&P: Qatar in net external creditor position of around $50bn – According to a report by the ratings agency S&P, Qatar is in a “net external creditor” position of about $50bn despite the country’s total external debt rising steadily in recent years. S&P said Qatar’s total external debt was estimated at $166bn in 2012. However, this debt is more than offset by the external assets accumulated by the Qatar Investment Authority. S&P has associated Qatar’s current account balance and external debt position with limited vulnerability as the country has posted extremely strong current account surpluses fuelled by hydrocarbon exports. S&P also expects the trade surplus to remain strong in 2013 due to high oil & gas prices, which will more than compensate the expected higher debt service from rising gross external debt. Moreover, S&P said it considers Qatar’s economy to be in an expansionary phase with a real GDP growth of 6% in 2012. Credit growth in the banking sector has been exceptionally strong over the past five years, growing at 30% in 2011 and 21% in 2012. This growth was mainly driven by borrowing by government and quasi-government institutions, which rose by 45% and 47% in 2011 and 2012 respectively. (Gulf-Times.com)  S&P: Exposure of real estate, aggressive expansion plans “weaknesses” of Qatar‟s banking sector – According to a report by S&P, severe exposure to real estate market and aggressive expansion plans are the key weaknesses for Qatar’s banking sector, despite its high stability and strong profitability. S&P expects the country’s real estate market to recover from its sharp decline since 2009, but the commercial segment remains more vulnerable than the housing segment. S&P said this is one of the main risks faced by Qatari banking sector given its high concentration on lending to cyclical sectors such as real estate & construction. S&P also said that lending concentration in the real estate & construction sectors is high at 20% of total loans at year-end 2012. In addition, foreign currency lending has recently increased dramatically and accounted for 51% of total loans at the end of 2012. However, the ratings agency said economic risks for the Qatari banking sector remain average in a global comparison.

The Spanish economy entered into a recession at the end of 2011. However, after shrinking 0.5% in 1Q2013, the government expects growth in 2Q2013 to be closer to zero. (Reuters)  China's GDP growth slows to 7.5% – GDP growth in China declined in 2Q2013 to 7.5% YoY as weak overseas demand weighed down on output and investment.

(Reuters) Regional  Saudi Arabia is Australia‟s largest meat export market in MENA region – According to a report by the Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), Saudi Arabia has become Australia’s largest meat export market, accounting for 30% of shipments to the MENA region. The Kingdom is followed by the UAE at 25% and Kuwait at 13% shipments. The report said significant growth in beef exports was driven by a surge of shipments to Saudi Arabia as Australian beef gained market share after Brazil was banned from the market in late 2012. Exports to Saudi Arabia totaled 18,944 tons shipped weight in FY2012-13, up by four-fold YoY, making Saudi Arabia Australia’s largest beef market in the MENA region. The Brazilian ban in Saudi Arabia has, however, increased competition in other beef markets in the region, with increased quantities of Brazilian beef entering Jordan and the UAE. Moreover, the report said that the MENA region continues to grow as an important market for Australian red meat exports with volumes reaching 160,963 tons shipped weight in FY2013, an increase of 32% over FY2012. (GulfBase.com)  Kingdom‟s real GDP growth slows to 2.1% in 1Q2013 – According to the data released by the Central Department of Statistics & Information (CDSI), growth in Saudi Arabia's GDP (adjusted for inflation) slowed down to 2.13% in 1Q2013 from 6.5% in 1Q2012. The data showed that the headline figures reflect a fall in Saudi crude oil output over the year, while growth in the non-oil private sector also slowed to 4.31% from 5.18%. CDSI also revised its 1Q2012 GDP growth figure to 6.5% from the 8.3% growth announced in April. Meanwhile, analysts polled by Reuters in April had forecasted that economic growth in the Kingdom would slow down to 4.1% in 2013 from 6.8% in 2012. (GulfBase.com)  BMI: Saudi non-hydrocarbon sector to continue to fuel overall – According to a report by the Business Monitor International (BMI), Saudi Arabia's non-hydrocarbon sector will continue to drive overall economic growth over the next few quarters, helping to balance a steady decline in oil production. The report said business activity in the private sector remains supported by the government’s loose fiscal policy stance, easy credit conditions and robust consumer confidence. The report forecasted a real GDP growth of 4.1% in 2013, accelerating to 4.6% in 2014 on the back of a slight rebound in oil exports. Further, inflation is expected to remain broadly subdued in 2013 on the back of declining rental costs and government subsidization of food & fuel. The report noted that a prolonged period of robust growth, coupled with loose fiscal and monetary policies pose a medium-term inflation risk. The report also forecasted that the Kingdom’s current account surplus will shrink substantially in the years ahead, falling from 23.7% of GDP in
  4. 4. Page 4 of 5 2012 to 10.7% of GDP by 2016. However, with both global oil prices and domestic hydrocarbon production expected to trend downward, 2013 fiscal surplus will be lower than in previous years at SR261.9bn (9.7% of GDP).
