The 15m tonne project is a far cry from the 155m tonnes anticipated from the joint venture with BHP, but underscores Rio Tinto’s aim to expand with or without BHP. center_img whatsapp whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsAll Things Auto | Search AdsNew Cadillac’s Finally On SaleAll Things Auto | Search AdsSmartAnswers.netThis New Volkswagen SUV Is The Car Of Your Dreams.SmartAnswers.netTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Lloyds chief in plea to avoid a forced break-up

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Wednesday 24 November 2010 9:06 pm whatsapp Lloyds chief in plea to avoid a forced break-up Share LLOYDS Banking chief Eric Daniels yesterday warned that forcing a break-up of the bank with its 30 per cent plus share in several retail markets would be a mistake.There is mounting speculation that Sir John Vickers independent commission, set up by the coalition government after the election, could force Lloyds to unwind its controversial takeover of rival HBOS.The commission will make its final recommendations next September, but an interim report is due out in the Spring. “Concentration does not lead to competitive outcomes. Concentration allows for safety and stability,” he told the Daily Mail. Daniels has asked the coalition to stick by Labour’s pledge to keep the bank intact.

Industry bounces back in UK

first_img whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 1 December 2010 8:22 pm RECORD breaking statistics are pointing to a resurgent UK economy, according to authoritative data released yesterday.Jobs growth in manufacturing for November raced forwards at its fastest rate since 1992, when the Markit/CPI Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) began collecting data.And UK manufacturing growth hit a sixteen year high, after production rose for 18 months in a row. The index increased to 58 in November, and October’s rate was revised up to 55.4. The PMI is used as an indicator of economic activity, and all figures above 50 indicate a rise.The figures reflect stronger output growth and inflows of new work and new export orders, the authors said.“Job creation was attributed to the ongoing economic recovery,” they added. On Monday employment forecasts were revised upwards by the Office for Budget Responsibility. The private sector is forecast to add 1.5m jobs by 2015, with unemployment falling to around six per cent.“Today’s survey supports our view that growth this quarter will be at least 0.5 per cent,” said Hetal Mehta of Daiwa Capital Markets.“Any notion that the Bank of England is poised to implement more quantitative easing in the near term should now be dispelled,” she said.Yet manufacturing only accounts for 12.8 per cent of GDP, warned Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight. “Nonetheless, this is a superb, encouraging survey,” he added. “And the more forward looking elements showed improvement.” KCS-content whatsapp Tags: NULL Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Industry bounces back in UK last_img read more

Market tense over rate rise

first_img Share MARKETS are nervously awaiting the results of the Bank of England’s latest meeting on interest rates.“We expect a considerable degree of market tension ahead of Thursday’s monetary policy committee (MPC) announcement,” said Investec’s Philip Shaw.Sterling rose last week after MPC members Andrew Sentance and Charles Bean gave interviews which suggested a leaning towards monetary tightening.Bean noted global commodity price inflation, admitting that the committee “may well have to respond to that by keeping domestically generated inflation lower.”Consumer price inflation reached 3.7 per cent in December, and Andrew Sentance’s call for a modest rate rise was finally joined by another MPC voter last month. Martin Weale also voted for a 0.25 per cent increase.Yet Shaw expects rates to remain at their historical low. A rate hike “could have the ‘avoid at all costs effect’ of derailing the planned fiscal consolidation,” he said. And the British Chambers of Commerce yesterday called for the Bank to keep rates on hold. “Avoiding a new setback must remain a key policy priority,” commented BCC economist David Kern.

Economists blamed the decline in the 16 countries that use the single currency on heavy snow during the month, which was particularly bad in Euro-powerhouse Germany. The figure, which follows strong increases in the previous two months, is unlikely to have any major affect on today’s Eurozone growth figures, according to economists.

KCS-content whatsappcenter_img VICKY PRYCE | FTI CONSULTING“The MPC is getting nearer a rise in interest rates. This is inevitable eventually. But it is not clear that recent economics news has made a rate rise more imminent. The data on input prices will have encouraged the hawks. But the Q4 GDP and labour market figures will have emboldened the doves.”ALAN CLARKE | BNP PARIBAS“The Bank’s new forecasts took us a step closer to the first interest rate hike. But we will need to see surprisingly strong growth or higher inflation for a rate hike in the next few months. Although the inflation report didn’t rule out a hike as soon as May, I suspect it is more likely that the first hike comes in August.”PHILIP BOOTH | INSTITUTE OF ECONOMIC AFFAIRS“It is likely that the Bank of England will edge towards a rate rise within the next three months. The hawks will become more hawkish and those who are in two minds will become concerned by the dogged persistence of inflation. Interest rates are now 3.5 per cent below the rate of inflation and this is not sustainable.” Share Sunday 20 February 2011 11:02 pm More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more
