The report shows that there has been an ongoing transition from general access to ICT devices and technologies to the use of advanced online services. Usage of portable devices such as laptops, tablet computers and smartphones among the overall population has increased, with mobile phones now used by nearly 100% of the population. Although smartphone penetration stands at 65%, the penetration of laptops increased from 83% in 2012 to 93% in 2013, while the penetration of tablets tripled over the same period to 29% in 2013.

(Qatar Tribune) International  Merkel’s bloc wins German EU election amid anti-euro insurgency – The German chancellor Angela Merkel’s bloc won 35.5% votes in Germany’s election for the European Parliament, even as a campaign to ditch the euro gained support. The Alternative for Germany party, which wants to dismantle the euro currency union, took an estimated 7% share for its first seats in any election.

(Bloomberg)  Credit Suisse offers map to 13 Swiss banks in US tax probes – Thirteen Swiss banks face serious implications in criminal tax-evasion probes after Credit Suisse Group set a new standard for punishment in the US crackdown on offshore tax evasion. Julius Baer Group, Zuercher Kantonalbank and the Swiss unit of HSBC Holdings are among those seeking to avoid pleading guilty of helping Americans cheat the Internal Revenue Service - an unprecedented step taken by Credit Suisse on May 19. The guilty plea by Credit Suisse’s main bank subsidiary and Overall Activity Buy %* Sell %* Net (QR) Qatari 62.12% 69.55% (98,465,542.33) Non-Qatari 37.88% 30.45% 98,465,542.33
  3. 3. Page 3 of 4 $2.6bn penalty last week marks a watershed in a campaign that has led to charges against more than 100 people since 2009. The 13 Swiss banks vary in size and scope of business, with only HSBC having substantial operations in the US. Like Credit Suisse, HSBC could seek the blessing of regulators to operate in the US if it pleads guilty. The smaller banks without a US presence could lose the ability to engage in US dollar clearing if they are charged or plead guilty. (Bloomberg)  Chinese public sector told to cut ties with US consulting firms – The Chinese government has told its state-owned enterprises to sever links with American consulting firms just days after the US charged five Chinese military officers with hacking US companies. China's action, which targets companies like McKinsey & Co and the Boston Consulting Group, stems from fears that the firms are providing trade secrets to the US government. China warned this week it would retaliate if Washington pressed ahead with allegations that the Chinese officers hacked into various US nuclear, metal and solar companies. China also said it would investigate providers of IT products and services to guard national security and economic and social development. It also banned new central government computers from using Windows 8, Microsoft Corp's latest operating system. (Reuters)  Bloomberg: PBoC cuts corporate yield spread most since global crisis – China’s corporate borrowing costs are falling to the lowest level since the global financial crisis as the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) eases its monetary policy to revive bond issuance and spur a flagging economy. The expanding bond market is helping Chinese Premier Li Keqiang as he seeks to staunch off-balance sheet lending known as ‘shadow banking’, while ensuring companies get enough cash to avoid default as manufacturing activity and the property market cool down. The PBoC pumped CNY120bn into the economy last week, the most since January 2014. Rising cash supply has helped lower benchmark borrowing costs. The yield on China’s 10-year sovereign note dropped 35 basis points since March to 4.16% as of May 23, 2014. The seven-day repurchase rate, a gauge of interbank funding availability, has averaged 3.41% this quarter, the lowest since the three months ended March 2013. (Bloomberg)  IMF calls for closer cooperation among central banks – The International Monetary Fund’s Managing Director, Christine Lagarde, called for closer cooperation among the world's central banks to cope with the challenges of increasingly interlinked and complex financial systems. She said that the financial crisis has shown that coordinated international action helped prevent disruption spreading across economies around the globe. She also said that advanced economies could help reduce volatility by communicating clearly about the course of their monetary policy. Lagarde said the current environment in the Eurozone was a sobering reminder of how balance sheet weakness could constrain the ability of banks to support credit and investment, ultimately contributing to low inflation. (Reuters) Regional  Savola sells Kazakh edible oil assets for SR107mn – Saudi- based Savola Group has sold its entire assets and operations of edible oils in the Republic of Kazakhstan to a Russia-based company, for a purchase consideration of SR107mn.
