Wielding Finance, Innovation And Policy To Make An Impact In Climate Change

Finance Minister makes his debut on CNBC Africa show

Public financing need to be designed with private finance mobilization in mind blending small amounts of public funds with the flexibility and accountability that will create investor confidence, make for attractive investments, and ensure maximum impact for the public finance that is allocated. We have learned from the Climate Investment Funds (CIFs) and other tools how to blend public and private finance effectively, and now need to build the GCF and other solutions with these lessons in mind. What character and approach do you think new institutions in this space will need to take in order to be effective, both as investors and as part of the international community? The key attribute must be that these institutions are co-designed and managed with the private sector in mind, as public funds will only be a drop in the bucket.

Remember our GDP has almost doubled in the last 5 years he stated. He later allayed fears over the effect of the falling gold and cocoa prices on the local economy. He said revenues from oil production, the recent taxes and governments vision to diversify the economy should adequately cushion the economy against the resultant shocks. We expect that revenues from the countrys oil production which has fueled economic growth in the last few years would stabilize the current accounts.

Ahmed Galal, the interim Egyptian finance minister, said Egypt's reform process would make it highly attractive to investors, despite the ongoing violence in the country, which saw former President Mohamed Morsi removed from power on July 3 and numerous people killed in the subsequent unrest. "The combination of both a political process that is unfolding in the right direction and an economic reform process that gives some credibility and confidence, I think that combination is likely to make Egypt a very attractive place for investors," Galal said. "All of them are most welcome to come, sooner rather than later. If I were an investor, I would come to Egypt now, not later, because this is the time when you establish a position, and then later when the economy recovers, this is when you will make your returns." The interim government's transition plan includes parliamentary elections in around six months, but supporters of Morsi remain camped out in protest in Cairo, despite being urged by the government to move.

Cache Announces New Credit Facility with Wells Fargo Capital Finance

"Economy and finance are the most important issues for the future of Serbia and we need an additional impetus here," he said. "We have no time for mistakes." In response, Dinkic accused Dacic of "pure politicking" to cement his own position as premier. The nationalist SNS is riding high in opinion polls and stands to gain the most from a new election, which would likely cement its dominance of the Serbian political scene. But elections, and the weeks or months it would take to form a government, will cost valuable time in shoring up national finances and implementing a landmark accord between Serbia and its former Kosovo province, brokered in April by the EU. That would likely delay the start of EU accession talks, penciled in for January.

Finance ministry, DIPP differ over key retail issues

NorthStar Realty Finance Declares Second Quarter Common Stock Dividend

They also have different opinions on whether to include agricultural cooperatives as part of the sourcing clause. DIPP argues that if sourcing is made 'preferable' as suggested by the department of economic affairs (DEA) in stead of 'mandatory', foreign retailers might not at all source from MSMEs. "It would defeat the government's purpose of the policy being used as an instrument to strengthen MSMEs," DIPP has said, a person familiar with the developments told ET. The Union Cabinet will consider the proposal on Thursday. It will also consider a proposal to set up Rail Tariff Authority, an independent body that will decide tariffs.

Weil's Views on Finance

Industry estimates put the value of the Islamic finance sector at $1.5 trillion, little more than 1 per cent of the overall global financial sector. And, despite impressive annual growth rates of 15 per cent to 20 per cent, AlQemzi said there is no real tangible evidence that Islamic finance is a world force. Even in Muslim countries, conventional finance has a larger market share than Islamic finance. For example in Malaysia, Al Qemzi told delegates, Islamic lending accounts for just 26.6 per cent of overall lending.

The New York Times in an editorial says Summers is not the best person for the job. A solid nominee wouldnt polarize the Senate, much less the presidents own party. So what does Summers think about quantitative easing anyway? Wall Street Journal reporter Jon Hilsenrath has done a close reading of Summerss columns and speeches and spoken to unnamed people familiar with his thinking. He writes that Summers is skeptical about the benefits of printing money to buy bonds -- but that he doesnt see much harm in it. So maybe he would mark a shift from Bernanke. Or maybe not.

Noor Islamic Bank?s CEO calls for global body to regulate Islamic finance industry

Critics of the ruling Liberal Democrats are uneasy over the party's proposals for revising the U.S.-inspired postwar constitution, in part to allow a higher profile for Japan's military. Japan and Nazi Germany were allies in World War II, when Japan occupied much of Asia and Germany much of Europe, where the racial supremacist Nazis oversaw the killings of an estimated 6 million Jews before the war ended in 1945 with their defeat. Japan's military aggression, which included colonizing the Korean Peninsula before the war, is the reason its current constitution limits the role of the military. According to a transcript of the speech published by the newspaper Asahi Shimbun, Aso decried the lack of support for revising Japan's pacifist constitution among older Japanese, saying the Liberal Democrats held quiet, extensive discussions about its proposals.

Noor Islamic Bank?s CEO calls for global body to regulate Islamic finance industry

Even in Muslim countries, conventional finance has a larger market share than Islamic finance. For example in Malaysia, Al Qemzi told delegates, Islamic lending accounts for just 26.6 per cent of overall lending. While in the UAE, Islamic finance accounts for only 12 per cent of the financial sector. Al Qemzi called for practical measures to be implemented that progressively address impediments to the growth of Islamic finance. We need to create an enabling environment for cross border connectivity through Islamic finance, he said.
