    September 14. OPEC downgrades forecast for global oil demand for 2020-2021

    According to the September OPEC report, the organization downgraded the forecast for world oil demand for 2020 and 2021 by 0.4 million barrels per day. OPEC now expects a drop in demand by 9.5 million barrels per day this year and an increase of 6.6 million barrels next year. In 2020, demand is expected at 90.2 million barrels per day, and in 2021 – at 96.9 million.

    The deterioration is mainly due to a decrease in the level of economic activity in several countries of the Asia-Pacific region due to an increase in the number of cases of infection with Covid-19. Oil demand in India, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines in the second quarter was much lower than initially expected. At the same time, the demand for oil in China in the second quarter exceeded expectations.

    The organization notes that forecasts for demand may be lowered again due to the risks of a second wave of coronavirus in the world and the difficulties associated with vaccination. Moreover, the restrictions due to the pandemic and the operation of many businesses remotely could prevent the transport sector from fully recovering to pre-crisis levels next year.

    September 17. The World Bank gave dates of the global economy recovery

    World Bank Chief Economist Carmen Reinhart, speaking at the Trends 2021 online forum, said that the global economy will not recover from the coronavirus crisis until 2025.

    Therein, in some countries the recession will last longer than in others. In particular, poor countries will be much more affected by the crisis, which could lead to an increase in the level of extreme poverty in the world from 8% to 9%.

    In a June World Bank report, experts predicted the worst recession since World War II. According to them, the decline in the global economy in 2020 will be 5.2%.

    September 21. UK thinks about canceling Tax Free shopping system

    The British authorities announced that they are considering the possibility of canceling the Tax Free system from December 31 of this year, explaining this decision by too large budget losses in case of a tax refund after purchases.

    Such a plan by the authorities drew sharp criticism from the tourist industry. The fact is that canceling the Tax Free system for foreign visitors could cost the UK billions of pounds in lost profits. In addition, 70,000 jobs will be at risk.

    Tourists from non-EU countries make purchases in the UK annually in the amount of £3.5 billion. In case of refusal to refund VAT, Britain will become the only country without Tax Free, which may lead to the fact that tourists prefer shopping in other cities and countries.

    At the moment, a Tax Free deduction can be obtained for purchases worth 30 pounds, the amount of VAT is 20%. It is noted that items purchased in this manner should not be used in the UK.

    October 06. The EU is ready to resort to new measures of economic stimulus

    The head of the European Central Bank, Christine Lagarde, said during her speech that the regulator is ready to resort to new monetary stimulus measures, including lowering the key interest rate even below zero, to help the recovery of the Euro zone economy.

    Lagarde also noted that with the second wave of coronavirus in France and Spain, the prospects for restoring activity in the region look «a little more unstable.» The head of the ECB believes that the eurozone's GDP will not return to pre-crisis levels until the end of 2022, so it is necessary to continue stimulating.

    So far, the ECB has refrained from further cutting rates, although it announced a new stimulus program worth about 3 trillion euros. The key rate for today is 0.0%.

    Representatives of the banking sector have repeatedly stated that negative rates of the ECB negatively affect profits. Analysts believe that the rate cut will lead to a weakening of the euro, which has strengthened against the US dollar in recent months. And this, in turn, will reduce the concerns of the regulator about the high rate of the euro, which negatively affects large exporters and inflation.
