(QSE)  Doha Bank’s CEO: Green economy is an enabler for sustainable growth – The Public-private partnership (PPP) funding models can potentially address the challenges posed by climate change in sectors like housing, communication, infrastructure, health, agriculture, livelihood, water, and sanitation, Doha Bank’s CEO R Seetharaman said. Delivering a special address at the just- concluded 20th World Congress on Environment Management and Climate Change, organized by Institute of Directors (IOD), in New Delhi, India, R Seetharaman said “G20 countries which account for 85% of global GDP and 80% of CO2 emissions should adopt a combination of pro-growth and pro-environment policies in developing their overall growth and development strategies. Infrastructure is at the heart of economic growth and yet there has been chronic underinvestment in most G20 countries. The major green carbon emitters are China, US, EU and India. Global Green Bond issuances exceeded $155.5bn in 2017 with US, China and France leading the issuances.” (Peninsula Qatar)  Ezdan Holding Group to hold its EGM on July 23 – Ezdan Holding Group to hold its Extraordinary Meeting (EGM) on July 23, 2018, in case of lack of quorum a second date will be on August 15, 2018. (Peninsula Qatar)  Qatar-Pakistan trade jumps 104% to QR5.83bn – The bilateral trade volume between Qatar and Pakistan witnessed a remarkable tripled digit-growth in 2017 compared to 2016. The two-way trade exchange between the two friendly nations jumped by 104% to about QR5.83bn in 2017 from QR2.84bn in 2016. The bilateral trade volume is set to witness further jump in the coming years as both the countries are working in close cooperation to further strengthen and deep economic cooperation in several promising areas. (Peninsula Qatar)  MEC: 1,043 new firms registered in June – The Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) issued the business process report for June 2018, pointing that 1,043 new companies have been registered. According to the report, the number of new major business records reached 791, while the number of new sub-registries reached 252 records. Limited liability companies accounted for 64% of the major business registers, while the category of single owner limited liability companies came in second place with 25%, and the individual institution came in third place with 10%. (Peninsula Qatar)  Deputy Emir launches mega reservoir project in Al Thumama – Deputy Emir HH Sheikh Abdullah Bin Hamad Al Thani launched the first phase of water pumping in the strategic mega reservoir project in Al Thumama. The Deputy Amir took a tour in the pumping station and received a briefing on the operating mechanism and the modern techniques used in the project. (Peninsula Qatar)  Hamad Port received 803 ships in six months – Showing a robust half yearly performance, Hamad Port received 803 ships in the first six months of the current year. It was performance driven time for the $7.4bn port as it achieved many significant milestones during the first six months of the year. (Peninsula Qatar) International  US services sector activity picks up; jobless claims rise – US services sector activity picked up in June amid strong growth in new orders, but trade tariffs and a shortage of workers were starting to strain the supply chain, which could slow momentum in the coming months. While other data showed private payrolls rising less than expected last month and a surprise increase in new applications for unemployment benefits last week, overall labor market conditions continue to tighten. The labor market is considered to be near or at full employment, with the jobless rate at an 18-year low of 3.8%. The unemployment rate has dropped by three-tenths of a percentage point this year and is near the Federal Reserve’s forecast of 3.6% by the end of this year. The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) stated its non-manufacturing activity index rose 0.5 point to 59.1 last month. A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector, which accounts for more than two-thirds of US economic activity. (Reuters)  UK’s productivity problem resurfaces in early 2018 – British productivity contracted at the fastest pace in a year in early 2018, reversing some of the gains made last year and highlighting a long-standing problem in Britain’s economy, official data showed. There were also signs of the kind of inflation pressure that the Bank of England (BoE) is expected to douse by raising interest rates. Productivity in Britain has stagnated since the global financial crisis, even more than in most other advanced economies, and has played a key role in squeezing Britons’ living standards. Over the past 10 years, productivity growth was the weakest since modern records began and appears to be the slowest since the early 1820s, when Britain was emerging from the Napoleonic wars. From January through March, output per hour worked fell by 0.4% QoQ, the biggest decline in a year, following a 0.6% rise in late
  4. 4. Page 4 of 6 2017, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) noted. Some of the weakness might reflect a broad economic slowdown during snowy and icy weather in early 2018, but analysts said they saw the same old picture emerging from recent data. (Reuters)  BoE’s Carney boosts expectations for August rate hike – BoE’s Governor, Mark Carney boosted expectations of an interest rate hike next month, saying he had become increasingly confident that the British economy’s weak start to the year mostly reflected bad weather. Sterling hit a day’s high against the Dollar after Carney said inflation pressures had continued to firm, as the BoE expected, and that there was widespread evidence that slack in the economy had been largely used up. Carney also warned of the potential costs of a trade war in a speech delivered a week before US President Donald Trump is due to visit Britain. Last month investors were surprised when three out of nine BoE rate-setters, more than expected, voted for an immediate rise in rates, increasing the chances of a hike in August. (Reuters)  France’s trade deficit widened in May, with the figures worse than forecast – France’s trade deficit widened in May compared to the previous month, according to seasonally adjusted data published by the customs office, with the figures coming in worse-than-forecast. The May trade deficit stood at 6.01bn Euros, versus a revised figure of a 5.21bn Euros deficit in April. A Reuters poll of nine analysts had given an average forecast for a May deficit of 5.1bn Euros. The French economy has started to show signs of a slowdown after initially recovering in the wake of President Emmanuel Macron’s election in May 2017, and the customs office said that lower exports in the aerospace and automobile sectors had impacted the overall deficit figure. (Reuters)  Japan unveils bullish GDP growth estimates for FY2019 – Japan’s government forecast the economy will grow faster than private-sector projections in fiscal 2019, with exports, domestic private consumption and capital spending expected to offset the hit from a planned sales tax hike. The Cabinet Office’s projections, presented at the Council on Economic and Fiscal Policy - the government’s top economic panel, showed the economy was likely to grow 1.5% in price-adjusted real terms in the fiscal year starting in April 2019. It is expected to expand 2.8% in nominal terms. Market economists see the economy growing just 0.8% in real terms and 1.8% in nominal terms, reflecting the impact of a planned sales tax increase in October 2019. (Reuters)  Official think tank: China’s 2H2018 GDP growth seen easing to around 6.6% – China’s broad economic growth was expected to ease to around 6.6% in the second half of this year, the State Information Center stated. The official China Securities Journal quoted the State Information Center (SIC) saying the Chinese economy is likely to experience a mild slowdown in the second half of the year as financial market risks become “obvious” and demand is expected to decline. The SIC is an official think tank affiliated with the National Development and Reform Commission, the country’s top economic planning agency. The economy has already felt the pinch from a crackdown on riskier lending that has driven up corporate borrowing costs. The central bank has since pumped more cash into the economy to ease fears from the start of a trade war with the US by cutting reserve requirements for banks. (Reuters) Regional  Middle East’s air passenger demand growth slips in May – Middle East carriers’ demand growth slowed to 0.8% in May, compared to a year ago, from 2.9% annual growth recorded in April. The earlier timing of the holy month of Ramadan this year may have affected the result, but broadly, the upward trend in traffic slowed compared to last year. May capacity increased 3.7%, and load factor fell 1.9 percentage points to 67.5%. The International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) global passenger traffic results for May showed that demand rose 6.1% compared to the same month in 2017, which was a slight pickup from 6.0% YoY growth for April 2018. Capacity climbed 5.9% and load factor rose 0.1 percentage point to 80.1%. (Peninsula Qatar)  Saudi Arabia’s total reserve assets fell to SR1,892.2bn in May – Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority reported that total reserve assets fell to SR1,892.2bn in May from SR1,899.6bn in April. Investment in foreign securities fell to SR1,203.3bn from SR1,220.4bn in April. FX and deposits abroad rose to SR651.7bn in May from SR641.5bn in April. (Bloomberg)  Saudi Arabia’s oil output rose to 10.488mn bpd in June – Saudi Arabia pumped 10.488mn barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil last month, an increase of 458,000 bpd from the level it said it produced in May, sources said. Saudi Arabia’s total supplies to the market in June were even higher than well-head production, the sources said, suggesting the Kingdom sold crude from storage. The sources said Saudi Arabia supplied 10.579mn bpd in June, a figure that includes domestic consumption and all exports, including from storage tanks. (Reuters)  Payrolls in Saudi Arabia and the UAE could rise over the long- term – Salaries for highly skilled workers could boom as talent shortages take hold across EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa), according to a study. Left unchecked, the salary rise could add more than $2.5tn to annual payrolls by 2030 in 20 leading economic markets analyzed, $593bn in the EMEA region alone. This potential salary rise is the direct result of a shortage of estimated 85mn highly skilled workers required for companies to succeed in the new digital economy. Salaries for in-demand workers in Saudi Arabia and the UAE and could add as much as $33.6bn and $5.9bn to the total national payroll by 2030, marking wage growth of 9% and over 17% respectively. (  Credit and deposit growth picks up pace in the UAE – Aggregate monetary data for the first five months of the year from Central Bank of the UAE showed a pick in both credit and deposit growth across the banking system. According to an analysis of the central bank data by Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank’s Economics team, system-wide loans and deposits in the banking sector saw solid monthly rise in May, both expanding by 0.7% MoM. The overall pace of credit growth has been moderately stronger year to date, averaging 0.5% from 0.3% in the corresponding period in 2017. The MoM increase in credit in May resulted in YoY growth rate accelerating to 2.5% from 2.1% in April. The rise in gross credit was largely driven by private sector corporate loans, which expanded by 1.6% MoM (up AED12.3bn) in May. (
  5. 5. Page 5 of 6  UAE-China trade increases 15% to top $53bn in 2017 – The value of trade exchange between the UAE and China in 2017 grew to $53.3bn, compared to $46.3bn in 2016, an increase of 15.1%. This increase is the result of the rise in re-exports by 37.4%, valued at $3.5bn, as well as growth in imports by 14.7%, valued at $48.3bn. The UAE’s foreign trade with China in 2017 varied between direct trade, which was valued at $25.685bn or 48% of the country’s total foreign trade, and free zones, which was valued at $27.644bn or 52%. (  DIB to leverage balance sheet amid rising rates – Commercial lending should drive Dubai Islamic Bank’s (DIB) double-digit growth this year, underpinned by higher risk appetite fed by strong capital base, economic growth and improved liquidity. Since loan books take longer to re-price vs. deposits, the bank may use its ample lending capacity to capture more business at higher rates, which is favorable to net interest margin. (Bloomberg)  Waha Capital plans to hire for new fund targeting US, Europe – Abu Dhabi investment firm Waha Capital is planning to hire more people as it seeks to start new funds, one of which will target undervalued US and European equities. Waha Capital’s CEO, Michael Raynes said, “Our strategy is to increase fee income by raising third-party assets under management. The focus is to take opportunities to investors, in this region and in Europe, the United States and Asia.” The company, which has AED2.4bn in assets under management, is reorganizing its fund-marketing division to support its investment drive, which may also include a fund that caters to regional demand for Shari’ah-compliant investments.
