Finance Minister directs commercial banks to increase interest for depositors

This will not be cheap, unfortunately, Walton declared. He promised that the accountants report will be released to the public. This is public money and they deserve to know what happened, he said. De Sapio, who served as Hunterdon County counsel for 30 years, represents Finance Director Kimberly Browne, Treasurer Margaret Pasqua and Payroll Administrator Megan Youells. He spoke forcefully for them at the July 2 Freeholder session, urging the board to reinstate them to their lawful positions effective immediately. Hell be asking the same, and more, at next weeks meeting.

He said banks played an important role in national development by being institutional mechanisms for mobilisation of capital and channeling capital enterprises. In this process the terms, which is the interest rates at which the money is dispensed cannot be a matter of indifference because the cost of money determines various other costs in the economy. This is the principal consideration of Government assigning prominent consideration to seeing a drastic reduction in interest rates, he said. The minister commended Investrusts expansion strategy and its growth saying it had grown at a robust pace with its operations and financial performance showing an upward swing.

India finance minister asks banks to ensure credit flow to industry

Credit: Reuters/Adnan Abidi NEW DELHI | Thu Aug 29, 2013 8:46am EDT NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian Finance Minister P. Chidambaram on Thursday asked state-run banks to ensure flow of credit to every sector of industry, indicating the need for funding projects amid an economic slowdown. The banks have been asked to assist industrial borrowers who were facing difficulties and be sympathetic towards genuine defaulters, Chidambaram told a parliamentary panel attached to the finance ministry. Economic growth virtually halved in two years to 5 percent in the fiscal year that ended in March -- the lowest level in a decade -- and most economists surveyed by Reuters in the past week expect 2013/14 to be worse.

With an apparent fix of the technical error on the way, the real issue for credit unions is the original tax hike, said Rogers. "The federal budget introduced a tax change that was a total surprise, and we were blindsided by that," he said, estimating the measure would cost credit unions $28 million annually. Credit unions and caisses populaires consider themselves small businesses, with higher operating costs because they can't achieve the same economies of scale as the larger financial institutions. "We hope to convince (the government) that the words in the budget document that said this tax increase on credit unions would restore neutrality and fairness probably doesn't achieve that goal," he said.

"I have no doubt that such a mistake is the natural consequence of denying Parliament its proper oversight function and ramming omnibus legislation through both Houses," Brison said in his letter.

This week, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said there will have to be another aid program after the current one expires next year. William Booth and Loveday Morris Relatives in Nazareth, Israel, mourn victims and wonder what happened. Schaeuble was quoted as telling Germanys Handelsblatt daily that the prospect of further aid is being held out on condition that Greece fulfills its obligations and in the expectation that this will be about far smaller sums than to date, because Greece will then already have a primary surplus. He said he cant name any specific figures or measures and that decisions will have to be made next year, but again rejected the idea of a second debt writedown for Greece following a massive debt restructuring deal agreed with private sector bondholders last year. Asked where the money for a further Greek aid package would come from, Schaeuble said that hasnt been decided but noted that the eurozones rescue fund, the European Stability Mechanism, is far from exhausted. Germanys opposition has seized on Schaeubles comments about Greece to attack the governments credibility ahead of Sept.

That cannot last forever - even if it is a relief to the federal budget," he said. "The central bank has announced it will raise rates again when the economy improves. That is good."

The ECB has based this 'forward guidance' on the inflation outlook remaining subdued, and growth weak.

India central bank allows non-bank Islamic finance firm

"I don't think there is going to be a rush for NBFC applications. RBI's attitude towards the sharia-compliance concept is yet to be tested," said Shariq Nisar, director of research and operations at Mumbai-based Taqwaa Advisory and Shariah Investment Solutions. Running a sharia-compliant financial institution under Indian regulations is still difficult and other firms are likely to stay on the sidelines pending the success of existing schemes before deciding to join in, he added. Islamic equity and venture capital products have attracted little demand in India and NBFCs could face the same fate, said Nisar. "NBFC business overall has been declining over the years." The RBI issued guidelines for NBFCs in June, cracking down on debt issuance by an industry that relies heavily on capital markets to fund its business but has faced less regulatory oversight than banks.

The Role of Finance May Be Changing, But the Route to the Top Remains the Same

But after 20 years of hearing that the role of finance is shifting towards helping develop strategy and increasing partnering with the business, one would have thought that the qualifications, career paths, and origins of these finance leaders would have begun to show some signs of change. Specifically I for one would have anticipated an increase in the proportion of them holding a qualification of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and a decrease in the proportion holding a qualification awarded by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales. However, the available evidence suggests that if anything the reverse has happened, (see table). While 80% of FTSE Financial Directors continue to hold one or more accounting qualifications (and many of those that dont have an MBA or some other higher qualification typically relevant to their industry), it is evident that most still hold a qualification from one of the two bodies that are more orientated towards financial accounting rather than those that are more focused on management accounting.

A wealthy Moroccan businessman was named interim finance minister on Friday, as the ruling Islamist party pursues efforts to form a new coalition government after its main ally quit.AFP/File RABAT (AFP) A wealthy Moroccan businessman was named interim finance minister on Friday, as the ruling Islamist party pursues efforts to form a new coalition government after its main ally quit. Aziz Akhennouch, a technocrat in his 50s who headed the ministry of agriculture and fisheries in the two previous governments, was appointed to the key cabinet post, the official MAP news agency reported. He replaces Nizar Baraka, whose Istiqlal party withdrew from the ruling coalition in July after strongly criticising the Islamist Party of Justice and Development (PJD) for failing to shore up the economy and solve pressing social problems. Morocco's government has been hamstrung since May when Istiqlal first announced its intention to withdraw from the PJD-led coalition, which won the largest share of votes in parliamentary elections two years ago. Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane has been negotiating in recent weeks with the National Rally of Independents party, to which Akhennouch formerly belonged, to form a new cabinet and avoid early elections.

Indian finance minister seeks relief for rupee

India's large current account deficit -- the broadest measure of trade -- must be funded with foreign capital, and the country is seen as one of the most vulnerable among emerging market nations whose currencies are under pressure globally. India's rupee recovered from historic lows against the dollar on Friday, marking its biggest single-day gain in nearly a year, but analysts warned the currency's overall trend was still bearish. The rupee, one of Asia's worst performing currencies, bounced back 2.09 per cent -- its biggest one-day gain since September 2012 -- to end trade at 63.20 Friday, up from its record closing low of 64.55 the previous day. The Indian unit, which had hit a new lifetime intraday low of 65.56 Thursday, was boosted on Friday by comments by Chidambaram and the Reserve Bank of India.

Morocco names new interim finance minister

The Sunday Leader was unable to verify this viewpoint. However in a matter relating to another school, Leeds, the ownership of that business was vested with TFC after the promoters were unable to maintain the repayment schedule. The inequitable situation continues: a building in Galle valued at a staggering Rs 63.4 million is occupied without legal title according to the same report of the Accountants. A senior official at TFC said, this flippant attitude to the legalities is very strange for a company that has been set up using funds from the public. Adding to the strange set of affairs, a further sum of Rs 159 million was written off to other Ceylinco related companies. Although Sussex maintains that the agreements with TFC have been terminated, Sussex continues to occupy property belonging to TFC fuelling a string of legal cases.
