MEF BUSINESS NEWS 24 JUNE 2024 The Federal Reserve’s favored inflation indicators are expected to show the slowest monthly increases since late last year, possibly leading to interest rate cuts as early as September. Economists predict no change in the May personal consumption expenditures price index and a slight 0.1% rise in the core measure, excluding food and energy. The annual increase for both overall and core gauges is projected at 2.6%, the smallest since March 2021. The data will be released Friday this week. —————————————————————- Euronext head calls for sangfroid before French vote Stéphane Boujnah, CEO of the biggest stock exchange in Europe, in an interview with the Financial Times urged business leaders to stay calm ahead of France’s snap elections, expressing doubts over the far-right Rassemblement National (RN) and the leftwing Nouveau Front Populaire (NFP) implementing their economic policies. Despite investor concerns and a 5% drop in France’s Cac 40 index, Boujnah believes the influence of rating agencies, unions, EU pressure, and presidential powers will limit drastic changes. RN’s proposed tax cuts and NFP’s higher taxes on the wealthy both threaten economic stability as the country moves away from President Macron’s pro-business stance. An Ipsos poll for the Financial Times found that 25 per cent of respondents had most confidence in Marine Le Pen’s party to take the correct decisions on economic issues. ————————- China and the EU will negotiate over electric vehicle tariffs With billions in trade at risk, Beijing and Brussels will hold talks to address a growing dispute. China’s commerce minister, Wang Wentao, and EU trade commissioner Valdis Dombrovskis will discuss the EU’s proposed tariffs on Chinese electric cars, according to China’s commerce ministry. Earlier, Germany’s vice chancellor and economic minister, Robert Habeck, indicated the EU’s willingness to consult, hoping to avoid tariffs. The European Commission recently proposed tariffs of up to 38% on Chinese electric cars, in addition to an existing 10% tariff, citing heavy subsidies in China’s electric car sector. These exports are increasingly challenging Europe’s automakers. ————————————————————— Insurance will be crucial for the energy transition A report by Howden and Boston Consulting Group reveals that over half of the $19 trillion invested in the net zero transition will need substantial insurance coverage, stressing the sector. At least $10 trillion in new coverage is required for energy, transport, and building projects, including offshore wind and solar farms. Howden calls the report a “wake-up call” about insurance’s essential role and the challenges it faces. Insurers are expanding into new technologies but struggle with limited historical data, raising concerns about their capacity to underwrite these vast projects. —— —— MEF MOBILE NEWS 24 JUNE 2024 Orange is contemplating selling its 40% stake in Mauritius Telecom, Bloomberg reported citing people familiar with the matter. The French telecommunications company has discussed exit plans with advisers, though it has not formally approached Mauritius Telecom’s board regarding a share buyback. A decision on the potential sale is expected by November. T he stake is considered less strategic following operational changes and a rebranding to MyT. The move reflects broader strategic shifts in Africa’s telecommunications sector amid global competition and regional challenges. ————————————— In India, Vodafone Idea meets 5G rollout requirements, but the launch timing remains uncertain. The carrier has fulfilled the minimum obligations for its licenses . Despite this milestone, the timeline for its full commercial 5G launch remains unclear. Initially aiming for a mid-year launch, plans have shifted to potentially late this year following recent fundraising efforts totaling billions. The company faces financial challenges including significant debt and upcoming regulatory payments. —————————— Malaysia Prepares for Dual 5G Networks with DNB Support CelcomDigi and U Mobile have joined Maxis in backing a share subscription agreement with the State entity Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB). The move is essential for advancing the rollout of a second 5G network in the country. In a stock market filing, CelcomDigi confirmed meeting all conditions set by the Minister of Finance and DNB, emphasizing its full support for Malaysia’s dual 5G network model. U Mobile’s CEO expressed readiness to sign the agreement, highlighting preparedness for the second network rollout. Telekom Malaysia remains the only operator pending approval from its shareholders, with a deadline set for August 21. Following completion of the subscription deal, the Ministry of Communications plans to initiate the selection process for building and operating the second 5G network. —————————— The demand in China and India primarily drove a 7% year-over-year growth in the global shipments of cellular Internet of Things (IoT) modules in Q1 2024, according to a Counterpoint Research report released on Monday. It said that the rest of the markets were still facing inventory and demand challenges in the January-March quarter. —— —— MEF TECH NEWS Meta discussed Integrating its AI model with Apple’s system, according to the Wall Street Journal. Facebook’s owner has engaged in talks with the Cupertino, California based tech giant regarding the integration of Meta’s generative artificial-intelligence model into Apple Intelligence. Apple has developed its own AI models but has indicated a willingness to collaborate with partners for more complex tasks. Startups Anthropic and Perplexity are also reportedly in discussions with Apple to integrate their generative AI technologies into Apple Intelligence. Apple introduced Apple Intelligence at its Worldwide Developers Conference on June 10. This technology aims to summarize text, generate original images, and retrieve relevant data efficiently. ————————————————- On Friday, Apple said is postponing the rollout of its artificial-intelligence features to millions of customers in Europe this year, citing concerns over the European Union’s Digital Markets Act (DMA). The DMA includes strict regulations aimed at large technology firms, emphasizing interoperability and data portability, which Apple claims could compromise user privacy and data security. Apple expressed its commitment to finding a solution with the European Commission while highlighting its motivation to make AI technologies accessible. Similar delays have been noted by other tech giants, including Meta Platforms, due to regulatory requests impacting AI development and deployment in Europe. ———————————————— X CEO Linda Yaccarino has restructured her leadership team under pressure from Elon Musk to enhance sales and reduce costs, the Financial Times reports citing several persons with knowledge of the matter. Following the dismissal of Joe Benarroch, blamed for mishandling a new policy rollout, Nick Pickles will temporarily expand his role to include global communications. The changes come amidst tensions over financial performance since Yaccarino’s appointment from NBCUniversal. Elon Musk has initiated cost-cutting measures, including staff reductions and tightened expenses, overseen by Steve Davis, CEO of his Boring Company, tasked with reviewing X’s finances and performance management. —— ——
