Page 4 of 6  KNOMAD: Remittances from Qatar and GCC countries continue to grow in 3Q2015 – According to a report released by the World Bank Group’s Global Knowledge Partnership on Migration and Development (KNOMAD), remittances from Qatar and GCC countries have continued to grow despite the sharp drop in oil prices. Total remittances by expatriates from Qatar were around $11.2bn in 2014. However, the remittance outflow from the region is likely to witness a slowdown due to low oil prices and other factors. Globally, Qatar is ranked 11th among top remittance sending countries while the US is on top with an estimated $56.3bn recorded outflows in 2014. “More recent data from the fourth quarter, however, indicate a slowdown in remittances from the GCC countries. If lower oil prices persist, remittance outflows from GCC countries are likely to slow further,” said the report.

(Peninsula Qatar) International  Eurozone looks to help Greece on debt from 2018 upon reform completion – Eurozone Finance Ministers offered to grant Greece debt relief by giving it longer grace periods and bond maturities from 2018 if the country delivers by then on all reforms agreed under its latest bailout. The offer, to be worked out in detail by Deputy Finance Ministers by May 24, appears to be a compromise between Germany, which does not believe Greece needs additional debt relief, and the International Monetary Fund, which insists it is necessary. Meanwhile the document, prepared by the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) for talks of Eurozone Finance Ministers, says that under the main scenario, Greece's economic growth would be 3.1% in 2018, 2.8% in 2019, 2.5% in 2020, 1.5% in 2025 and 1.3% from 2030 to 2060. Under this base scenario, Athens would maintain a 3.5% of GDP primary budget surplus from 2018 until 2025. After that it would start declining to stay at 1.5% in 2040-2060. Based on the ESM document, Eurozone deputy finance ministers will work on various debt relief steps for Greece over the next two weeks and present their findings to Eurozone Finance Ministers on May 24, 2016. (Reuters)  IMF more upbeat on Germany outlook as factory orders rise – International Monetary Fund (IMF) said German industrial orders rose more than expected in March and "a bit more optimistic" about the outlook for Europe's largest economy, which is heading into 2Q2016 on a solid footing. The surprisingly strong economic data, published by the Economy Ministry, and the upbeat comments made by a senior IMF official in Berlin were the latest signs that the German economy's solid start to the year may extend into the summer. Contracts for "Made in Germany" goods were up 1.9% MoM, the biggest increase since last June, beating Reuter’s consensus forecast of 0.7%. In April, the IMF forecast German growth of 1.5% GDP in 2016. In 2015, the economy grew by 1.7%, the strongest rate in four years, driven mainly by strong private consumption and higher state spending on refugees. Germany's domestic industrial orders fell by 1.2% in March, but foreign demand rose by 4.3%, with bookings from countries outside the Eurozone soaring by 6.2%. For the whole 1Q2016, industrial orders rose by 0.5% QoQ, with bookings from abroad increasing by 2.0% and domestic orders falling by 1.3%. The surprisingly strong March figure suggests that industrial output is likely to pick up in the coming months.
