Iraq’s Economy – Achievement is Nearing

Iraq’s Economy – Achievement is Nearing


All the recent reports have shown that the economy of Iraq is growing and it is growing rapidly. It is expected by 2030, that Iraq will establish its own oil and gas set up to control over the Middle Eastern energy output. No doubt that the most significant and largest resource of Iraq's economy is the oil production and so Iraq is putting much effort on it to expand it at its best. One of the most hopeful sign for country's economy is the proper upturn of foreign investment. That could take Iraq to reach its aim. In 2011, Iraq has managed to attract $55.67 billion foreign investors and some other saleable actions. Truly the government of Iraq is taking attempt for creating a better environment for the foreign investors, recovering from all the inner-state or inter-state political tensions and other obstacles. The New- York based companies like Exxon Mobil, BP, CAM, WFT etc, they have already invested into the country and looking forward to expand the business.

Even Cameron, China and South Korea have shown interest into investing in Iraq. South Korean company STX group have decided and planning to start an extended gas and oil processing plant in southern region of the country, Basra district. The investors are assuming the country as disturbed place because of some past political incidents, but Iraq has worked on security and other issues and so the director of the Baghdad Investment Commission, Shaker al-Zamily assures and says for not missing the opportunities to enter and start business in the country. The real estate industry is also making its place rapidly. Iraq estimates, it requires to build up more than 800,000 houses or apartments, according to Shaker al-Zamily. Another problem of the country is facing is unemployment. The country undeniably highly depends on the oil production, but having a population of above 30 million, it is quite hard for the government to employ all the citizens with the help of oil revenues.

The government needs to take more wise and clear decision in order to make the economy stronger. 30% or more than that of the budget( $100 billion) is going for pensions and salaries. And most of the Iraqi citizens depend on the government for employment, whereas they should look for abroad studies or jobs and help the country's economy to grow more. Besides some negative aspects, Iraq truly has got so many positive points to have faith in it and drawing attention of whole world of economy.

GKN Forced The Rival Bidders to Pull Back For Volvo Aero


There is soon going to be shocking news around for the British's manufacturing industry as the British engineering group GKN has decided to buy Sweden's largest aerospace company 'Volvo' worth up to 800m. According to the reliable sources, the deal is not imminent as the other bidders like Germany's MTU Aero Engines, Carlyle Group and Nordic Capital have supposedly pulled themselves back from the list of front-runners who planned to buy Volvo's aero engine business. After the acquisition of Volvo Aero, GKN would be considered the second largest, by revenue, of GKN's four divisions. Since Volvo Aero manufactures entire engines as well as parts for aircraft including Saab's Gripen fighter jet, it would be a major expansion of GKN's aerospace business. Speculations are also being made about GKN that to raise enough cash to buy Volvo, it is planning to sell out its non-core business of wheels which manufactures parts for construction and other heavy vehicles.

Recently, in the month of January when GKN failed to make a lucrative contract to do work on the wings of the Airbus A320 jet after losing the deal to its Korean rival who made a cheaper offer. GKN which manufactures lightweight parts for Airbus and Boeing jets on the Isle of Wight as well as Bristol is already in joint venture with Rolls-Royce for making lightweight turbine blades for the aircraft engines. However, it was confirmed by Chief executive of GKN, Nigel Stein, that the company was looking for profitable acquisitions, especially in aerospace and land systems, as far as the buyout is concerned they would remain disciplined. GKN's chief executive, Nigel Stein, called the year 2011 as the year of transition for the aerospace industry. He explained that the boost in the civil aviation market has lessened the military orders.

Earlier, the sales mix was 58% civil and 42% military which is now expected by GKN to move towards 70% civil and 30% military. With this deal, GKN now wants to move forward and sell its aero engine division which supplies parts for civil and military aircraft. Stein confirmed that they are more focused on heavy trucks and construction equipment. However, analysts Andy Chambers and Alexandra West at Red burn cautiously stated on this mooted deal that it would be a significant undertaking carrying an element of execution risk. Sandy Morris at Jefferies warned Volvo Aero that the acquisition might stretch GKN financially and a rights issue might be sincerely required. Need cash apply with short term cash loans and get funds in minutes. Although, Volvo Aero and GKN have lots in common in the engine components market, they are working on the development of composite materials for engines. And, since both are already major suppliers to GE, Pratt & Whitney and Rolls-Royce, they are together going to have a much stronger portfolio in the market. Morris further added that they would analyze the equity placing and increasing debt against the uncertain Euro zone; and also cleared that the deal was little compelling.

Why Are we Subsidizing Big Oil?


President Obama must be asking the same thing as he proposes cutting out approximately $36.5 billion a year in oil and gas company subsidies and tax breaks in his new budget, which is set to be released at the end of February. "We will not continue costly tax cuts for oil companies," president Obama said in his announcement of the proposed budget for the 2011 spending year, which starts in October. This isn't the first time president Obama has tried to cut off big oil. He has tried to cut the subsidies from the federal budget two previous times but was rebuffed each time as intense lobbying from energy producers and opposition from both sides of the aisle in Congress prevented it.

The argument against cutting subsidies has been the same each time; ending the subsidies would damage the economy. "This is a tired old argument we've been hearing for two years now," said Jack Gerard, president of the American Petroleum Institute, the oil and gas industry's main lobby in Washington. "If the president were serious about job creation, he would be working with us to develop American oil and gas by American workers for American consumers." Mr. Gerard, in an interview with the New York Times turned the subject of subsidies on its head, stating that "The federal government by no stretch of the imagination subsidizes the oil industry.

The oil industry subsidizes the federal government at a rate of $95 million a day." The administration's response has been that big oil has been raking in record profits for years (while charging $3.50 a gallon for a gallon of gas). Considering that Exxon Mobil's profit for the last year came in at $124 billion, cutting a subsidy of $36 billion for the entire industry doesn't look like it's going force any of the members of big oil into bankruptcy. A second look at Exxon's profit, put in the context of Mr. Gerard's comment hinting that big oil needs to continue receiving subsidies to create jobs, seems a bit disingenuous but an extra $36 billion can buy a lot of toys. Reuters reported that renewable energy will get a funding boost in the 2012 budget, including "$302 million for solar energy (up 22 percent), $123 million for wind energy (up 53 percent) and $55 million for geothermal energy (up 25 percent)". If Obama is successful in getting the oil subsidy lifted, it would be encouraging to see more money allocated toward renewables. While the percentage gains are impressive, the money going to renewable energy sources would be less than 3% of the money saved from cutting the $36 billion subsidy.

China Lowers 2012 Gdp Growth Target to 7.5%


China, the world's second largest economy, lowered its GDP growth target to 7.5 percent this year, marking the first time the figure has dropped below 8 percent in the past eight years. China aims to increase its GDP by 7.5 percent, boost the volume of total exports and imports by roughly 10 percent, and hold consumer price index (CPI) increases to around 4 percent, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said in his "Report on the Work of the Government" presented to the National People's Congress on Monday. The slower growth rate is in line with global expectations and reveals China's awareness of the need to rebalance its economy.

The country currently relies heavily on exports and investment for its economic development, but has begun to find such an economic model no longer sustainable due to surging labor costs and a lack of innovation (which leads to low investment returns). " settling a slightly slower GDP growth rate, we hope to make it fit with targets in the 12th Five-year Plan, and to guide people in all sectors to focus their work on accelerating the transformation of the pattern of economic development and making economic development more sustainable and efficient, so as to achieve higher-level, higher-quality development over a longer period of time," Wen stressed in his speech. China's 12th Five-year Plan released one year ago aimed at an average annual growth rate of 7 percent between 2011 and 2015, a 0.5 percent correction down from the development goal set in the country's 11th Five-year Plan.

A recent report named "China 2030" - prepared by the World Bank and the Development Research Center under the Chinese State Council - said China has reached a development "turning point" and should use the right timing to conduct deep reforms. "China could postpone reforms and risk the possibility of an economic crisis in the future or it could implement reforms proactively," says the report. Beijing's acceptance of a lower growth target is also interpreted as a measure to manage international expectations. While the debt-ridden Euro zone still expects China's rescue in cash, and the United States in an election year continues pushing the RMB value to rise, China's own headwinds may give the country less external pressure and offer a breathing space for domestic exporters.

London Bullion Market Association Reports on Silver Prices For 2012


According to the reports by the panel of expert analysts at the London Bullion Market Association, the prices on silver will not rise up to a remarkable extend as expected the same in April 2012. However, gold will display its flares in 2012 because of ongoing precious metals price prediction competition. As statistics from the competition on the prices, gold appears to touch elation unlike its counterpart the white metal. From the analysts' forecasts, it is clear that the average silver price in 2012 was US$33.98, but it shored up to a height of $44.49 that was a consecutive predication representing a substantial 39% increase. This is a blueprint of the current silver price, which is around $32.

If you take both of the metals in combination, you will see that the gold: silver ratio may fall a little from the current 52 to around 46, which is rated above the low point achieved in 2011 as well above the so-called historic ratio of 16:1. As six out of 25 participants in the competition assume that the prices on silverwill exceed $ 48.70 at some stage in 2012 taking for grand 28th April last year's silver price rise. Some analysts believe a maximum $50 increase for the white metal as the rounded off figure for silver at the current moment. With their last year prediction, they were unfortunately wrong with their $10 below guess. Hence, they feel that it is very difficult to predict fate of silver. The survey participants' doubts on silver's performance occur as a result of agitation about the global economic recovery and the proportion of silver demand, which depends on industrial usage. Some bullish forecasters say that the increasing industrial demand in the mid of the year provide sufficient boost to silver prices.

Hence, it offers an edge to its counterpart, gold as well a strong witness of silver's performance where both metals move forward at the same time. The white metal appears to be more volatile metal than its counterpart, gold whereas the variation is enormously notable because of high and low over the prices. According to the forecast of the analyst participants, the average silver price may fall down $20 whereas the average low price will stay at $24.06, which is huge difference representing a difference between high and low of around 85%. Because of volatile nature of silver, it is referred the Devil's metal and a point to note down that it is hard to predict about its altering prices.
