(QSE)  QFC: Private sector output, jobs creation boost non- hydrocarbons sector – Solid output growth in the private sector and job creation as well as falling average cost burden helped Qatar report improvement in business conditions within the non-hydrocarbons sector, according to the Qatar Financial Center (QFC). Price discounting and promotional activity continued to stimulate client demand, which in turn led to higher output requirements across the non-hydrocarbon sector. Furthermore, job creation was the “joint-fastest amid strong business confidence”, stated the QFC’s Qatar PMI (Purchasing Managers’ Index). The survey, compiled for QFC by IHS Markit, has been conducted since April 2017 and provides an early indication of the operating conditions in Qatar. The headline seasonally adjusted QFC PMI, a composite gauge designed to give a single-figure snapshot of operating conditions in the non- oil and gas private sector, softened to 51.8 in June compared to 52.4 in May. (Gulf-Times.com)  QCB sees rapid increase in QDB’s high-quality capital – The total assets of Qatar Development Bank (QDB) increased to QR10.2bn in 2017, from QR9bn recorded a year ago. As in the previous year, the increase in total assets during 2017 was largely due to growth in credit facilities and increase in placements of its funds with the banks, according to Qatar Central Bank (QCB). Fully owned by the government, QDB is not profit oriented. It aims to make Qatari SMEs globally competitive through financing, developing skills and capabilities; and promoting exports. Commenting on QDB’s 2017 performance, QCB noted in its latest ‘Financial Stability Review’ that QDB continued to contribute to the diversification of the Qatar economy, through facilitation of development of SMEs during the year. With renewed thrust on diversification of the economy and growth of SMEs, the balance sheet of QDB has been recording rapid expansion in the past few years. The momentum of expansion was maintained during 2017.

(Gulf-Times.com)  Qatari Venture wins approval for almost 1,000 London homes – Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Co. venture won approval to build almost 1,000 homes in the UK capital’s Elephant and Castle district. Southwark Council approved the revised plans to replace a shopping mall with apartment towers, a new college campus and stores. Investor Delancey, Dutch pension fund APG Asset Management NV and the Qatari sovereign- wealth fund’s property development unit will develop the project using their firm ‘Get Living’. (Bloomberg) International  UK’s economy picks up speed, raising chance of rate rise – Britain’s large services industry grew last month at its fastest rate since October, a survey showed, and prompting investors to increase bets that Bank of England will raise interest rates next month. After a weak first four months of 2018, the IHS Markit/CIPS services Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose to 55.1 in June, easily beating economists’ average forecasts in a Reuters poll of 54.0, unchanged from May’s reading. June surveys this week for the smaller manufacturing and construction sectors also beat expectations. Taken together, the three PMIs point to overall economic growth of 0.4% in the second quarter, double the pace of the first, IHS Markit stated. Sterling rallied and British government bond yields rose as
  4. 4. Page 4 of 6 financial markets priced in a greater chance that the Bank of England will raise interest rates to 0.75% from the 0.5% they have stood at for most of the past decade. (Reuters)  Eurozone business activity picked up in June but doubts linger – Eurozone business growth accelerated in June, offering encouragement to European Central Bank to tighten policy, but optimism among purchasing managers was at its lowest ebb since late 2016, a survey found. Faster growth across the currency union, alongside rising price pressures, will reassure ECB policymakers who last month said the bank would shut its hallmark bond purchase scheme by the end of the year. But in a balanced announcement reflecting uncertainties hanging over the economy, the ECB signaled on June 14 that any interest rate hike was still distant. Britain provided a similar story of stronger growth. Its large services industry grew last month at its fastest rate since October, suggesting the economy might be strong enough for the Bank of England to raise rates in August, as expected. (Reuters)  German services sector growth rebounds in June – Growth in Germany’s services sector accelerated to the highest level in four months in June, a survey showed, adding to signs that consumption is fuelling an upswing in Europe’s largest economy as exports weaken. Markit’s final services Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose to 54.5 from 52.1 in May, which was a 20-month low. The figure was higher than a flash reading of 53.9 but still below a near-seven-year high in January. Markit put the rebound down to stronger new orders underpinned by higher domestic demand. To meet the higher demand, service providers hired new workers at the highest rate since January. Markit’s PMI for manufacturing, which accounts for about a fifth of the German economy, fell to 55.9 from 56.9 in May, data showed. The fall was attributed to manufacturing export sales and new orders growing at their slowest pace in more than two years. This signaled the sector was cooling as fears of a full- blown global trade war cloud the economic outlook. The rebound in services more than compensated for the slower growth in manufacturing. (Reuters)  French business growth picks up after slowest quarter since 2016 – French private sector activity picked up in June, helped by a rebound in the services sector that more than offset a further slowdown in manufacturing, a survey showed. Data compiler IHS Markit stated its Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) for services rose in June to 55.9 from 54.3 in May, lower than a preliminary reading of 56.4. The index rose further above the 50-point threshold dividing an expansion in activity from a contraction. IHS Markit’s overall PMI index, which includes the services and manufacturing sectors, rose to 55.0 from 54.2 in May, again slightly below the 55.6 originally reported. (Reuters) Regional  IATA: Middle Eastern carriers’ freight volumes grow 2.4% YoY in May – Middle Eastern carriers’ freight volumes grew 2.4% YoY in May, International Air Transport Association (IATA) stated in a report. This was a significant deceleration in demand of over 6.9% the previous month. The decrease mainly reflects developments from a year ago rather than a substantive change in the current freight trend, IATA stated. Seasonally-adjusted freight volumes continue to trend upwards at a comparatively modest pace by the region’s standards. This is consistent with signs of a broader moderation in global trade. (Gulf-Times.com)  Saudi Arabia’s PIF takes 15.2% direct stake in ACWA Power – Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, Public Investment Fund (PIF), has taken a 15.2% direct stake in ACWA Power, a developer and operator of power and water plants. The PIF already owns a 9.8% stake in ACWA through a subsidiary, Sanabil Direct Investments Company, bringing its total shareholding in the company to 25%. “The investment will be in the form of a capital increase and proceeds will be used to support ACWA Power’s growth strategy and investment plan,” PIF stated. (Reuters)  Saudi Arabia’s cement sector to see revenue drop in 2Q2018 – Saudi Arabia’s cement sector is expected to witness a drop in revenue in 2Q2018, according to a report by Al Rajhi Capital. The companies under Al Rajhi’s coverage are expected to report a ~6% YoY decline in revenue, whereas earnings are likely to fall by ~10% YoY. The cement sector’s sales volume declined 16.7% YoY in the first two months of 2Q2018, which is due to restructuring in the industry and the seasonality effect (summer, Ramadan month and holidays). (GulfBase.com)  UAE, Saudi Arabia’s non-oil growth accelerates to six-month high – The health of the non-oil private sectors of both the UAE and Saudi Arabia improved at the fastest pace in 2018 during June, buoyed by strong inflows of new business and output growth, stated Emirates NBD in its PMI survey. In the UAE, promotional activity helped to stimulate client demand, reflected by new order books expanding at the fastest pace since December last year. Despite firms ramping up output, backlogs of work built up at a record pace. Meanwhile, input price inflation further softened from the peak seen in January. However, in Saudi Arabia, an upturn in output and new order growth were the key components behind the latest expansion. Furthermore, many panel respondents noted sharper capacity pressures, which led to the fastest build-up in backlogs of work in 11 months. In terms of inflation, both input and output price pressures remained subdued in the context of historical data. (GulfBase.com)  Top-end UAE’s industrial-zone rents resist real estate downturn – Rents in the UAE’s most well-known industrial zones such as Jebel Ali Freezone (Jafza) or Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad) remained resilient in the face of a wider market downturn, according to a report. While rents in lower- end stock have seen a significant fall over the 12 months to the first quarter of this year, the cost of renting stock in the higher- end market has risen. The decline in lower-end stock rents range from 5.4% to 13.7% in 1Q2018 compared to the same time period last year, according to analysts. (GulfBase.com)  ICAEW: Growth seen at 2.4% in Kuwait – According to Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales’ (ICAEW) report, Kuwait economy is on track to recover from a difficult year in 2017, when growth contracted by 2.7%. Overall, Kuwait’s GDP growth is expected to rebound to 2.4% in 2018 and stabilize around 3% in 2020-2021. However, ICAEW is concerned about the negative effects of the ongoing dispute between government and parliament.

  5. 5. Page 5 of 6 year and the next as rising oil and gas production boosts exports while the government increases investments in the non-oil sector to diversify hydrocarbons-revenue. GDP, adjusted for inflation is set to accelerate to 2.8% in 2018 and 3.5% next year, from 0.4% in 2017, according to a report by BMI. “The rising price of oil will offer upsides to fiscal revenues, boosting government consumption. Economic diversification efforts will continue apace and generate considerable investment in manufacturing, logistics and tourism,” the report stated. (GulfBase.com)  CBO issues treasury bills worth OMR45mn – Central Bank of Oman (CBO) raised OMR45mn by way of allotting treasury bills. The treasury bills are for a maturity period of 91 days, from July 4, 2018 to October 3, 2018.
