Minister of Finance: Kingdom in position of financial, cash strength 2 Riyadh

The minister reviewed issues concerning the financial system in the kingdom.
He said that “the financial institutions maintain their flexibility, as our banks enjoy relatively high levels of capital adequacy and liquidity ratios, despite some pressure on liquidity at the system level in general. However, this does not mean that we accept this situation, but we continue to periodically review our policies relating to financial stability and modernize the inefficient ones, and action will enable us to adapt to the current domestic and global challenges. Indeed, several government agencies have taken several actions, including actions in the context of the tasks entrusted to them and their roles in achieving the 2030 vision and program of national transformation. These actions succeeded in reducing the pressure, which hampers economic growth…”
He pointed out that the kingdom is enjoying a good number of specialized government financing institutions and that the government benefited from the financial savings years ago and stepped up those funds and programs which enabled them to continue to play an important role in the financing system for the private sector in addition to the fact that some of these funds benefited from its available liquidity to invest in public debt instruments and others.

U.S. Consumer Confidence Declines

Washington, Muharram 24, 1438, October 25, 2016, SPA—U.S. consumer confidence weakened in October following gains the previous two months, a private-sector research organization reported Tuesday.
The Conference Board said its consumer-confidence index fell to 98.6 this month from 103.5 in September. The drop was bigger than economists expected.
“Consumers’ assessment of current business and employment conditions softened, while optimism regarding the short-term outlook retreated somewhat,” Conference Board indicators director Lynn Franco said in a statement.
“However, consumers’ expectations regarding their income prospects in the coming months were relatively unchanged. Overall, sentiment is that the economy will continue to expand in the near term, but at a moderate pace,” Franco wrote.
Economists closely watch consumer-confidence indexes for clues on consumer spending, which accounts for 70 percent of U.S. economic activity.
