It is the second year in a row that Hong Kong has led the world in initial public offerings.New York’s $31.39bn US fundraising bid was a shadow of Hong Kong’s eye-watering total, with Shenzhen and Shanghai trailing behind Wall Street, Dealogic said.“It’s definitely an achievement – Hong Kong can claim to be both an international financial centre and a gateway to mainland China,” Liu Qiao, an associate business professor at Hong Kong University said.

Traders remained positive about Wednesday’s outlook. “Tomorrow holds potential for the FTSE to break through the 5900-level if UK unemployment and US CPI figures indicate steady recovery, said Chris Purdy, a trader at spread betting firm Spreadex. last_img read more

Oman port road blocked as protests spread

first_img whatsapp Oman port road blocked as protests spread Tags: NULL Monday 28 February 2011 2:58 pm Demonstrators have blocked roads to a main port in northern Oman and looted a nearby supermarket as protests demanding more jobs and political reform spread to the sultanate’s capital.A doctor said six people had been killed in clashes between stone-throwing protesters and police on Sunday in the northern industrial town of Sohar. Oman’s health minister said one person had been killed and 20 wounded.Hundreds of protesters blocked access to an industrial area that includes the port, a refinery and aluminium factory. A port spokeswoman said exports of refined oil products of about 160,000 barrels per day (bpd) from the port were unaffected.“We want to see the benefit of our oil wealth distributed evenly,” one protester yelled over a loudhailer near the port. “We want to see a scale-down of expatriates in Oman so more jobs can be created for Omanis.”Peaceful protests spread to other cities, with hundreds gathering outside a state complex in the capital Muscat and elsewhere.The unrest in Sohar, Oman’s main industrial centre, was a rare outbreak of discontent in the normally sleepy sultanate ruled by Sultan Qaboos bin Said for four decades, and follows a wave of pro-democracy protests across the Arab world.The sultan, trying to calm tensions, on Sunday promised 50,000 jobs, unemployment benefits of $390 (£242) a month and to study widening the power of a quasi-parliamentary advisory council.While hundreds of demonstrators blocked roads near the port, hundreds more were at the main Globe Roundabout, angry after police opened fire on Sunday at protesters.Police fired tear gas as around 200 protesters near a police building, which demonstrators had set fire to a day earlier.Graffiti scrawled on a statue said: “The people are hungry”. Another message read: “No to oppression of the people”.

No InstallTaonga: The Island FarmZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Herald KCS-content Share IRELAND’S newly elected Prime Minister Enda Kenny is facing an assault on Ireland’s sacrosanct 12.5 per cent corporate tax rate by Eurozone leaders, who declared on Friday that they would move to enforce a uniform corporate tax regime across the region.In negotiations intended to resolve the sovereign debt crisis, Eurozone ministers refused to lower the punitive interest rates on Ireland’s €85bn bailout if it does not bring its tax regime into line with the Eurozone norm of around 24 per cent.The European Council declared that the European Commission “intends to present a legislative proposal on a common consolidated corporate tax”, which could effectively rule Ireland’s lower tax rate illegal.The Council’s anti-Irish stance was underscored by its decision to lower the interest rate Greece must pay on its bailout by one per cent, but to refuse Ireland similar relief.The pact agreed on Friday also extended maturity on Greece’s bailout debt to 7.5 years and, following the vote in favour of a Tobin tax by the EU Parliament last week, promised to develop a regional financial transaction tax despite warnings that such it could devastate European trade.In a major German concession, the pact also boosted the main Eurozone bailout fund’s ability to lend out up to its full €440bn (£382bn) capacity by guaranteeing more of its debt. The bailout fund was also given power to intervene in primary sovereign debt markets in exceptional circumstances.The latter move will be welcomed by the European Central Bank, which has been single-handedly propping up Eurozone sovereign debt markets over recent months.AT A GLANCE | EUROZONE PACT● Context: Eurozone leaders met on Friday to thrash out a solution to the region’s sovereign debt crisis. The resulting pact exceeded expectations, but markets are still awaiting further details due after another summit on 24 March.● Bailout fund: The pact signed on Friday extended the ability of the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) to lend out all of its €440bn funds in order to bail out sovereigns. This effectively boosts the fund’s size, since it was before limited by Germany’s refusal to guarantee its debt.● Bond market purchases: Euro leaders also gave the EFSF permission to buy sovereign debt “with strict conditionality”. The ECB had been pushing for its bond-purchasing duties to be taken over by the region’s bailout fund.● Relief for Greece: The interest rate on Greece’s €110bn bailout was cut by one per cent and its maturity extended to 7.5 years in a bid to avoid a default.● Fiscal rules: Ministers also agreed that Eurozone states should implement a legally binding cap on their debt, though did not specify what form this should take.● Common tax rates: In an attack on Ireland’s low corporate tax, the pact promised to legislate for a common regional rate. whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ EU attack on Irish tax rate last_img read more
