Middle East’s second-largest export market is about to go bust

September 16, 2021 Comments Off on Middle East’s second-largest export market is about to go bust By admin

The Middle East has been hit hard by the fallout from the global economic crisis.

The country’s second largest export market, Middle East-China trade, is expected to be down by more than a third this year and by as much as 20% by 2020.

This is according to the report from the International Trade Centre (ITC), a trade consultancy based in Geneva.

The Middle Eastern trade deficit has grown by almost two thirds in the last decade.

The ITC said the Middle East had exported $1.5tn worth of goods in 2020, compared with $1tn in 2009.

“This is the second-highest trade deficit in the world, with Saudi Arabia the biggest and Iran the second biggest,” ITC chief executive, Robert Clements, said.

“The Middle East is a major transit country for large quantities of oil and gas.”

The Middle-East has been particularly hard hit by the collapse in oil prices and the fall in the value of the local currency.

“Middle Eastern economies are very dependent on oil prices to finance their foreign exchange needs,” ITCA head of research and analysis, Hala Ghafoor, told BBC News.

“With the collapse of oil prices, the Middle-Eastern economies have had to rely heavily on international trade to finance this,” she added.

“We estimate that by 2020, Middle Eastern economies will be facing a deficit of $3.6tn.”

“We think it is going to be a real challenge to sustain the growth of the Middle Eastern economy, and it is not going to go away.”

Saudi Arabia has long been the Middle Kingdom’s main source of foreign currency earnings.

The Saudi government’s economic policies have led to a steep fall in prices, which has forced the kingdom to borrow more and cut spending.

The latest government figures showed that gross domestic product in Saudi Arabia fell by 2.3% in the first quarter of 2019.

However, that is only half the total GDP lost in the same period last year.

Saudi Arabia was one of the biggest oil exporters in the Middle Sea region and exported $10.7tn in goods and services in 2019.

It also exported $2.9tn of oil to countries including India and Iran.

Iran is the country with the biggest trade deficit, and is due to import $3bn of Saudi goods and $2bn of Iranian goods this year.

“While the Saudis are still one of OPEC’s most important exporters, Iran has become the biggest net importer,” Clements said.

Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said the country’s exports to the Middle States had fallen in the past year by around 70%.

Saudi Arabia also has a very big trade surplus with Iran, which accounts for almost two-thirds of the countrys GDP.

However Iran’s trade with Saudi has fallen by almost half in the year to date, from $4.9bn in 2018 to $2,099m in 2019, according to ITC data.

Saudi is now the biggest importer of Iranian products in the region, accounting for about 10% of its total trade.

Iran has been the largest exporter of Chinese goods to the region since the mid-1990s, but that trade has plummeted.

“I think we are in a situation where Iran and the Saudis have been fighting it out for years, and the Saudi economy is going through a recession,” Cement said.

The report said the collapse had led to massive layoffs in the oil and natural gas sector.

“Since mid-2020, a total of 11,000 job losses have been reported in the gas sector alone.

The oil and coal sector has been especially hard hit,” ITCE chief economist, Tarek Elshamy, told Reuters.

“Even if you look at the impact of the oil price drop on the economy, it is a very small effect compared to the impact on the oil sector,” he added.

Saudi’s economy is expected by analysts to shrink by 1.8% in 2020 and by 3.8%.

The Middle States is the largest single export market for the world.

Its $1trillion economy is estimated to have exported $6.9 trillion worth of items in 2020.

“Saudi is still one the top exporters of Saudi Arabia, so we think that’s where the trade surplus will fall by half,” Calegh said.

He said the government’s efforts to reduce the gap between Saudi and its Middle East neighbours were having an impact.

“It’s a really interesting development, and I think it’s going to lead to a lot of jobs in the Gulf, especially in the sector that is most affected by the slowdown,” he said.

How to read the chart and understand the market

August 18, 2021 Comments Off on How to read the chart and understand the market By admin

The market is set to rise in the first quarter of 2019, according to a new analysis.

But the chart below reveals a bit more about what the market is likely to look like.

While the market was not averse to the “bubble” in the early months of the year, it’s now starting to look less bullish.

For a start, it was down by more than 1% in January.

In February, the market rose by 4.2%.

In March, it jumped by 3.5%.

It then jumped by 4% in April, 6% in May, 9.6% in June, and 14.5% in July.

And then it surged again, rising by 11.6%, to a record high of 6,974.26.

That means it’s not only the US that’s enjoying a strong market rally this year, but the world too.

Here’s a look at the markets performance from January through March.

Source: Bloomberg Data/Bloomberg dataIt’s a bit of a shocker when you look at what happened to the S&P 500 in March.

The index was down 5% in March, and the market has now rebounded by 12.4%.

It was down a whopping 3.4% in the previous month, but it has rebounded to a 3.6%.

The market also is still struggling to regain its footing after the first two months of 2019.

It’s down almost 3% in February and March, but has risen a stunning 5.2% in both months.

The S&amps have been in a downtrend for a while, with many of the companies that have lost market share to other companies.

But the market still has a good chance of returning to a healthy range of over-the-top earnings growth, which would help to offset the losses in the S-plus markets.

The market for new ads is shifting, and marketers need to start thinking like investors

July 29, 2021 Comments Off on The market for new ads is shifting, and marketers need to start thinking like investors By admin

Google is expanding the scope of its ad inventory, as well as its targeting, according to the company’s new Chief Financial Officer.

John Donohue, the company CEO, made the comments during a presentation at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

He said that as of April 30, Google had 1.4 billion ads on the market. 

The new strategy is a response to Google’s decision to limit its ad spending to about 30% of revenue, according the Wall Street Journal. “

The global platform is where we are going to be building the ad inventory that’s going to drive the business of the Google brand.” 

The new strategy is a response to Google’s decision to limit its ad spending to about 30% of revenue, according the Wall Street Journal. 

This year, Google was planning to spend around 50% of its revenue on advertising, with 20% going to ad serving and the rest to other investments. 

“I think we need to look at how we can invest in those other investments, not only with our ad inventory,” Donahue said. 

The move to expand the ad market comes after a few years of slowing growth, as Google struggles to find ways to monetize the vast amount of data it collects about the online search market.

In 2016, Google spent just $1.4B on ads, and it plans to spend $1B in 2017, according to a Wall Street analyst. 

Ads have become a major part of Google’s revenue model and have been one of the reasons it is able to retain its dominant position in the search market, but the company has faced increasing competition from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. 

Last year, Facebook acquired ad network Vox Media for $1 billion, and Twitter purchased advertising technology company AdSense. 

 Google is also experimenting with selling advertising on the Google Play store. 

As part of this plan, Donohuelu said the company is exploring whether or not it could sell ads to other social media networks, such as YouTube and Instagram. 

Donohue said Google is working on an advertising model that is unique to its business model. 

While the company believes it can do better in the mobile space, it said it has not taken any specific steps yet. 

On Monday, the Wall St. Journal reported that Google was expanding its ad network to include advertising on Apple devices. 

Google’s AdSense network has been around for almost a decade, but its advertising revenue was $2.5 billion last year. 

Facebook bought AdSense in 2011 for $2 billion, while Twitter bought Adsense in 2015 for $4.2 billion. 

Snapchat and Instagram are both owned by Facebook. 

If Google does sell ads in the future, it would be the first time advertisers have been able to sell their ads to the online social network. 

In addition to its ad revenue, Google also plans to invest $10B in advertising tech, as it seeks to take on social media giants like Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and YouTube. 

Its new ad network would include a suite of ad technologies that could help advertisers create targeted ads that are more effective, and to create new types of ads that can be sold to more consumers. 

According to Donohues presentation, Google is also considering how to integrate Google search into its ad delivery network, something it has tried for years. 

I think there is an opportunity for Google to be part of that, as we try to build our own ad delivery and be part, but not be an intermediary, Donahues said.
