Turkish central bank needs to be ‘fully independent,’ IMF’s Europe director says

Economic and political developments in Turkey have had investors worried for more than a year now. One of the country’s most immediate needs if it wants to get its house in order is to ensure total independence of its central bank, according to the man who led the bailouts of Greece, Portugal, Iceland and Ukraine during the Great Recession. “So we welcome the increase we’ve seen in interest rates in the last six to seven months, but it’s important that the Turkish central bank be allowed to be f

Turkish central bank needs to be 'fully independent,' IMF's Europe director says

Economic and political developments in Turkey have had investors worried for more than a year now.

One of the country’s most immediate needs if it wants to get its house in order is to ensure total independence of its central bank, according to the man who led the bailouts of Greece, Portugal, Iceland and Ukraine during the Great Recession.

“Turkey faces a number of challenges, and one of them is that the central bank needs to be fully independent so it can continuously assess and tighten policies as circumstances change in a forward-looking manner,” Poul Thomsen, director of the International Monetary Fund’s Europe department, told CNBC’s Joumanna Bercetche during the IMF Spring Meetings in Washington, D.C. over the weekend.

“So we welcome the increase we’ve seen in interest rates in the last six to seven months, but it’s important that the Turkish central bank be allowed to be fully independent in its assessment of monetary policy in addition to a number of other challenges on fiscal policy, and more transparency.”

Turkey’s economy is already in recession, rocked last year after fears over government interference into central bank independence, over-leveraged banks, a large current account deficit and a diplomatic spat with the U.S. triggered investor and capital flight. The lira lost 36 percent of its value against the dollar by the end of 2018.

Russia will be fully compliant with OPEC-led supply cuts by April, energy minister says

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Sunday that Moscow will be fully compliant with OPEC-led supply cuts over the coming weeks. “As for the target output level that forms part of the signed agreement, we plan to reach those figures by the end of March (or) beginning of April. The producers meet in mid-April to review their oil supply cut agreement, which is scheduled to last through the first-half of 2019.

Russia will be fully compliant with OPEC-led supply cuts by April, energy minister says

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Sunday that Moscow will be fully compliant with OPEC-led supply cuts over the coming weeks.

“As far as the meeting is concerned we, of course, discussed the situation with the execution of the agreement (and) we stressed once again that Russia is discharging its obligations in accordance with the agreement to smoothly achieve the target output,” Novak told CNBC’s Dan Murphy in Baku, Azerbaijan, according to a translation.

“As for the target output level that forms part of the signed agreement, we plan to reach those figures by the end of March (or) beginning of April. This is earlier than in the same period two years ago by about one month.”

His comments come three months into a fresh round of production cuts from the so-called OPEC+ alliance. The producers meet in mid-April to review their oil supply cut agreement, which is scheduled to last through the first-half of 2019.

The Middle East-dominated group, alongside non-OPEC allies such as Russia, agreed to reduce output by 1.2 million barrels per day (b/d) for six months.

OPEC’s share is 800,000 b/d, to be delivered by 11 members — with Iran, Venezuela and Libya exempt from cuts.

When asked whether Russia would support an extension to the cuts, Novak replied: “It is a little premature to talk about this. The deal after all covers the first six months of the year so any extension will be discussed in May or June this year.”

Chinese premier: ‘We must be fully prepared for a tough struggle’

China must be prepared for a “tough struggle” as the country faces a “grave and more complicated environment,” Premier Li Keqiang said at the opening of the annual National People’s Congress on Tuesday, the country’s annual parliamentary meeting. “We must be fully prepared for a tough struggle,” Li told a delegation of nearly 3,000 representatives. “The difficulties we face must not be underestimated, our confidence must not be weakened, and the energy we bring to our work must not be allowed to

Chinese premier: 'We must be fully prepared for a tough struggle'

China must be prepared for a “tough struggle” as the country faces a “grave and more complicated environment,” Premier Li Keqiang said at the opening of the annual National People’s Congress on Tuesday, the country’s annual parliamentary meeting.

“We must be fully prepared for a tough struggle,” Li told a delegation of nearly 3,000 representatives. “The difficulties we face must not be underestimated, our confidence must not be weakened, and the energy we bring to our work must not be allowed to wane.”

This year’s meeting comes amid tariff tensions with the U.S. — China’s largest trading partner — which have placed immense pressure on China’s economy and financial markets.

In prepared remarks, according to an official English handout, Li warned that there will be greater risks ahead for the world’s second largest economy.

“A full analysis of developments in and outside China shows that in pursuing development this year, we will face a graver and more complicated environment as well as risks and challenges, foreseeable and otherwise, that are greater in number and size,” Li said.

IMF’s Lagarde says oil exporters not fully recovered from 2014 shock, warns of ‘white elephant projects’

Oil exporters have not fully recovered from the dramatic oil price shock of 2014, the head of the International Monetary Fund said on Saturday, and she cautioned against spending money on “white elephant projects.” “This has led to a sharp increase in public debt, from 13 percent of GDP in 2013 to 33 percent in 2018.” Lagarde said governments in the region might be tempted to favor white elephant projects instead of investment in people and productive potential.

IMF's Lagarde says oil exporters not fully recovered from 2014 shock, warns of 'white elephant projects'

Oil exporters have not fully recovered from the dramatic oil price shock of 2014, the head of the International Monetary Fund said on Saturday, and she cautioned against spending money on “white elephant projects.”

“With revenues down, fiscal deficits are only slowly declining, despite significant reforms on both the spending and revenue sides, including the introduction of VAT and excise taxes,” Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the IMF, told a conference in Dubai.

“This has led to a sharp increase in public debt, from 13 percent of GDP in 2013 to 33 percent in 2018.”

Lagarde said the uncertainty in the growth outlook for oil exporters also reflected moves by countries to shift rapidly toward renewable energy over the new few decades, in line with the Paris climate change pact.

She said there was scope to improve fiscal frameworks in the Middle East with some of the weaknesses emanating from “short-termism and insufficient credibility.”

Lagarde said governments in the region might be tempted to favor white elephant projects instead of investment in people and productive potential.

Saudi Arabia, the Middle East’s biggest economy, has announced plans to go ahead with three major projects including NEOM, a $500 billion economic zone announced by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The projects are backed by the country’s sovereign wealth fund, the Public Investment Fund.

Lagarde also said across the region, it is common for sovereign wealth funds to directly finance projects, bypassing the normal budget process, while state-owned enterprises in some countries had high levels of borrowing, outside the budget.

She said oil exporters could follow the example of other resource-rich countries such as Chile and Norway in using fiscal rules to protect priorities, such as social spending, from commodity price volatility.

Among oil importers in the Middle East region, growth had picked up, but it was still below the level before the global financial crisis, she said.

Fiscal deficits remained high, and public debt had risen rapidly — from 64 percent of GDP in 2008 to 85 percent a decade later, she said. Public debt now exceeded 90 percent of GDP in nearly half of these countries.

Speaking about the global economy, Lagarde said the IMF was not seeing a global recession on the horizon, but risks were rising for global growth due to trade tensions and tightening financial conditions.

The IMF’s revised forecast sees the global economy growing by 3.5 percent this year, 0.2 percentage points below what it expected in October.

“Unsurprisingly, a weaker global environment has knock-on effects on the region through a variety of channels — trade, remittances, capital flows, commodity prices, and financing conditions,” she said.

Wells Fargo says it is working to fully restore systems as outage spills into day two

Amid a deluge of complaints that paychecks and other direct deposits weren’t going through to customer accounts, Wells Fargo on Friday said it has corrected the issue and transactions should now be reflected in customer balances.

The bank is still scrambling to restore normal service after customers were shut out of mobile and online banking services on Thursday. ATM services have since been restored and branches are operational, but the effects of the system outage have spilled into a second day.

“As a result of the process to restore systems yesterday, some transactions and balances were not visible in online banking or ATMs” as of Friday morning, Wells Fargo said in a statement. “The transactions were processed normally, and customers can use their accounts with confidence. This issue has now been corrected, and all transactions are now visible. We are experiencing higher than normal volumes so there still may be delays in online banking and contact center response times.”

Some Wells Fargo employees were affected. “Some team members were not able to see the payroll deposits in their online banking accounts for a short period of time. Wells Fargo payroll was processed normally. This issue has now been corrected,” the bank said in a separate statement.

The outage is putting stress on employees of companies that use Wells Fargo for payroll processing. Vanessa Alonso, who works in the accounting department of a small printing company called Nuvo Group in New York City, said she had tried to put payroll through for the company’s two dozen or so employees but was unable. She said she’s been trying to reach Wells Fargo about the problem with no success.

“I just get a message that says ‘We’re experiencing high call volume,'” she said.

In a statement late Thursday night, the San Francisco-based bank said that mobile and online banking systems were operational except for some features such as consumer credit card and mortgage balances, and added that it was working to restore them. Contact centers are up and running, Wells Fargo said, but people might have to wait longer than normal if they are calling in.

“We continue to work on restoring all our services as soon as possible, and encourage customers to contact us if they have questions or concerns,” Wells Fargo said in the statement. “We apologize for the inconvenience caused by these system issues, and we want our customers to know that any Wells Fargo fees incurred as a result of these issues will be reversed.”

The bank said Wells Fargo credit and debit cards could be used for purchases.The complaints piled up on social media, however, with anecdotal reports that direct deposits weren’t reflected in balances on the mobile app. Wells Fargo, the fourth-largest U.S. bank with a sprawling coast-to-coast branch operation, made several posts on Twitter, most recently saying, “We want our customers to know that this is a contained issue affecting one of our facilities, and not due to any cybersecurity event.”

Earlier Thursday the bank said the system issues were due to a power shutdown at one of its facilities after smoke was detected after routine maintenance.

It’s not clear if that incident was connected to one at a data center Wells Fargo keeps in Minnesota, where a fire suppression system was accidentally tripped early Thursday morning, prompting a visit from the local fire department. That incident happened at 5 a.m., and the bank called the fire department at 9 a.m. The fire department told CNBC on Thursday that there was no fire.

Homeland Security ready to protect Trump’s State of the Union

Homeland Security ready to protect Trump's State of the Union

Kirstjen Nielsen, secretary of the U.S. Homeland Security Department, on Wednesday pushed back on a suggestion by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that President Donald Trump reschedule his State of the Union address to Congress because of security concerns related to the ongoing partial government shutdown.

Nielsen said her department and the U.S. Secret Service “are fully prepared to support and secure the State of the Union.”

Nielsen’s statement came hours after Pelosi, D-Calif., suggested Trump reschedule his Jan. 29 speech to a joint session of Congress, or make it “from the Oval Office,” or even submit his speech in writing.

In a letter to Trump, Pelosi noted that as a result of the shutdown, “Both the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security have not been funded for 26 days now — with critical departments hamstrung by furloughs.”

“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless the government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for your to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to Congress on January 29th,” Pelosi wrote.

Until Nielsen’s tweet in response to Pelosi’s letter, the Trump administration had not responded to it formally.

However, a senior law enforcement official told NBC News that the Secret Service is fully ready to offer full protection for attendees at the State of the Union address despite the shutdown.

“It’s a no-fail mission,” the official said. “We’ve been planning for this for months, as we always do. It didn’t start up 29 days ago.”

Although Secret Service personnel are not being paid, the intelligence and protection functions of the agency are fully staffed.

Arrest of Huawei CFO shows ‘the gloves are now fully off,’ says Eurasia Group

Arrest of Huawei CFO shows 'the gloves are now fully off,' says Eurasia Group

The arrest of Huawei’s global chief financial officer in Canada, reportedly related to a violation of U.S. sanctions, will corrode trade negotiations between Washington and Beijing, risk consultancy Eurasia Group said Thursday.

“Beijing is likely to react angrily to this latest arrest of a Chinese citizen in a third country for violating U.S. law,” Eurasia analysts wrote.

In fact, Global Times — a hyper-nationalistic tabloid tied to the Chinese Communist Party — responded to the arrest by posting on Twitter a statement about trade war escalation it attributed to an expert “close to the Chinese Ministry of Commerce.”

“China should be fully prepared for an escalation in the #tradewar with the US, as the US will not ease its stance on China, and the recent arrest of the senior executive of #Huawei is a vivid example,” said the statement, paired with a photo of opposing fists with Chinese and American flags superimposed upon them.

Canada’s Department of Justice said on Wednesday the country arrested Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver, where she is facing extradition to the U.S. The arrest is related to violations of U.S. sanctions, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters.

U.S. authorities have been probing Huawei, one of the world’s largest makers of telecommunications network equipment, since at least 2016 for allegedly shipping U.S.-origin products to Iran and other countries in violation of U.S. export and sanctions laws, sources told Reuters in April.

The analysts said the Huawei executive’s arrest will not derail the start of trade negotiations after U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping’s meeting last weekend in Argentina saw them agree to first steps to resolve their trade dispute. Still, they acknowledged, the incident involving Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei is likely to cloud talks.

There will be an oil shortage in the 2020’s, Goldman Sachs says

Global oil majors are increasingly looking to invest in lower-carbon areas of the energy sector, as they react to pressure for cleaner energy, both from government policy and investors.

“In the 2020’s we are going to have a clear physical shortage of oil because nobody is allowed to fully invest in future oil production,” Michele Della Vigna, Head of EMEA Natural Resources Research at Goldman Sachs told CNBC Friday.

“The low carbon transition will come through higher, not lower oil prices,” he told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe.”

Della Vigna said “Big Oils” are starting to understand that if they want to be widely owned by investors, they need to show that they are serious about minimizing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere.

Amazon and Cisco have a new product for companies that aren't ready to fully embrace the cloud

Amazon Web Services and Cisco announced on Thursday that they’re teaming up on a product that will allow developers to build applications in the cloud or in traditional data centers while making it easier for them to move between the two.

It’s Cisco’s latest effort to create hybrid options for customers that want to push work to the cloud but still need to run some projects on their own hardware for privacy and regulatory reasons. Cisco previously announced partnerships with the other two major cloud providers, Google and Microsoft, but Amazon is by far the leader in the cloud infrastructure market.

The broad trend they’re playing into with the new offering is around containers, a modern way for developers to move code between machines. Amazon offers a service for deploying containers on servers in its data centers, and Cisco has developed software that works on servers that companies manage themselves.

Both draw on the Kubernetes open-source software, which originated at Google.

“Containers are the way applications are built today,” said David Goeckeler, executive vice president and general manager of Cisco’s networking and security business, in an interview. “The question is where are they going to run it.”

Cisco remains a powerful player in the world of traditional data centers, where companies are buying their own networking switches and routers. But increasingly that infrastructure has moved to the cloud, making it difficult for Cisco and other data center companies to find growth in their main markets. VMware announced a partnership with AWS two years ago and has since made its management software available on the Amazon cloud.

Cisco will sell and provide commercial support for the technology, which it’s calling Cisco Hybrid Solution for Kubernetes on AWS, starting at $65,000 per year when it becomes available next month. Companies will also be able to buy specialty hardware that comes with the software.

'Fully confident' White House receives FBI report on Kavanaugh

The White House received the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s report on sexual misconduct allegations against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and is “fully confident” the Senate will approve his nomination, a spokesman said.

The chamber was expected to receive the report early on Thursday, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Senators were to be granted access to review it during the day before a procedural vote, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Wednesday.

Senators had been given ample time to review the background investigation and the White House was “fully confident” they would endorse Kavanaugh, the administration’s Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said in a tweet early on Thursday.

Several people with information related to allegations against Kavanaugh told Reuters they had not heard from the FBI, suggesting its report may be narrower than was desired by some of the lawmakers who demanded it just days ago.

With the report’s conclusions as yet unclear, a partisan struggle over it has been developing.

U.S. President Donald Trump and the Senate Republican leadership are battling to corral enough support for a majority vote for Kavanaugh, a conservative federal appeals court judge, while Democrats are in near unanimity against him.

McConnell, a Republican, filed a petition for a cloture vote, which if successful would limit debate on the nomination and start the clock ticking on a final 30-hour waiting period before a Senate confirmation vote.

After filing a cloture petition, lawmakers must wait one legislative day before proceeding to a vote, according to Senate rules. That means a cloture vote could come on Friday morning at the soonest.

Christine Blasey Ford, a college professor from California who accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her in 1982 when they were high school students, has not been contacted by the FBI, her attorneys said.

As Senate Republican leaders marched toward a final vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination, the three Republicans who could be key to whether Kavanaugh is confirmed — Senators Jeff Flake, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski — criticized Trump for mocking Ford at a political rally in Mississippi on Tuesday.

Ford, who testified last week at an extraordinary Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, said she could not remember the precise date or location of the alleged assault or how she got home later, but offered a detailed account of the incident.
