  • 3. Page 3 of 5 News Qatar  QNB Group to disclose semi-annual financials on July 12 – QNB Group (QNBK) has announced to disclose the reviewed financial reports for the period ending June 30, 2016 on July 12, 2016. (QSE)  QNBFS: Brexit-related currency exposures minimal for Qatar banks – GBP/Euro F/X fluctuations is expected have negligible impact on Qatari banks’ financials. As far as GBP is concerned, Qatari banks have negligible net exposures (as a % of shareholders’ equity). However, in terms of banks under coverage, CBQK could actually benefit from a further depreciation in the Euro. Near-term volatility in stock prices could be driven by subdued sentiment, lower oil prices and EM risk-off trade (strengthening $). However, we see little direct impact on company financials due to BREXIT. The impending FTSE EM Index inclusion (first tranche in September 2016) remains the next major catalyst for the Qatari market (QNBFS Research)  Links Group: Qatar’s retail market to grow at 9.8% to reach $284bn in 2018 – Links Group, a provider of commercial facilitation and advisory services, revealed in its recent report that Qatar’s economic diversification strategy continues to create foreign investment opportunities across its burgeoning retail market, despite sustained low oil prices. The group added in the report that Qatar’s retail market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.8% reaching $284.5bn in 2018, the fastest in the GCC region. The report said the government has ambitious plans to develop its retail landscape to meet rising demand from the growing population’s high-level of personal consumption, adding that the key projects already underway include Mall of Qatar, Doha Festival City and Place Vendome. Links Group Founding Partner John Martin St Valery said, “Continued low oil prices mean Qatar is seeing its state revenues decline. As such, the country is actively seeking foreign and private sector investments. The development of the retail sector will help to shore up its economy and present excellent opportunities for foreign investors. In 2015, the country was ranked as the fourth most attractive retail market, placing it first in the Middle East.” (Qatar-Tribune)  Water recycling research gets boost – The Qatar Environment & Energy Research Institute (Qeeri), one of the three research institutes under the Hamad Bin Khalifa University, is in the process of conducting a pilot research in the reuse of treated sewage and agricultural waste water. Qeeri Acting Executive Director, Dr Khalid al-Subai said, “A modular pilot plant will be used in the experiments to deliver improved, high-quality water that can be used for irrigation, grey water application, district cooling and other purposes.” “The reuse of treated sewage effluents will provide a major water source in Qatar for agriculture and industrial applications and reduce the demand on desalinated water and major capital investments to build more desalination plants.” (Gulf-Times.com) International  IMF: Markets got 'Brexit' vote wrong, but did not panic – International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Christine Lagarde said that the Financial markets "vastly underestimated" the outcome of Britain's vote to leave the European Union (EU) but did not panic on June 23. She said "There was a violent, brutal, immediate massive move; the pound went down by 10%." "But there was no panic and the central bankers did the job that they were prepared to do just in case, which was to put a lot of liquidity on the markets." She said there were no market liquidity problems like those experienced in 2008 during the worst part of the financial crisis. Lagarde, however, said that how markets react from here depends on what steps UK and European policymakers take to deal with the separation vote and limit uncertainty. (Reuters)  BIS: Central banks will smooth Brexit-driven market moves – Bank for International Settlements (BIS) Head, Jaime Caruana said that the major central banks will limit market turbulence as much as possible after Britain voted to leave the European Union (EU).

This burgeoning growth is expected to drive up demand for parts and accessories, for which sales is expected to reach $17.2bn in 2020 as compared to the 2015 total sales of $12.98bn. This surge in demand is being driven by a variety of factors, chief among which are rapid urbanization and growing infrastructural and industrial development in the surging economies across the region.
