Walkingstick:  Here’s How Iran Will Rejoin the Global Financial System
By Jonathan Saul, Reuters
January 23, 2016
Ian is set to re-engage with the banking world within weeks as international lenders link up with their Iranian counterparts using global transaction network SWIFT, Iran’s Middle East Bank and a senior central bank official told Reuters on Friday.
A nuclear deal between world powers and Iran led to the removal of the curbs on Tehran’s banking, insurance and shipping sectors last weekend, as well as restrictions on oil exports.
But for Iran to resume business with the global banking world – for the first time since 2012 – its banks need to be linked to overseas lenders on SWIFT. The system, the Society for the Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications, is used to transmit payments and letters of credit.
“We have sent almost 40 SWIFTs to different banks around the world and we have requested that now that the sanctions are lifted, we would like to exchange documents and whether they will consider a correspondent banking relationship,” said Parviz Aghili, chief executive and managing director of Tehran-based Middle East Bank. “Some of them have come back and have asked for various questions, for documents they need.”
“My feeling is it is going to take a couple of weeks or so before we start to see proper re-engagement. It will be slowly, slowly,” he said in an interview.
Aghili said other Iranian banks were in the same situation regarding SWIFT as his company, which is listed on the Tehran Stock Exchange and has total assets of around $1 billion.
A senior official with Iran’s central bank also told Reuters the transaction links would soon be restored.
“Really, it is a matter of just a few weeks, less than a month. Because all of our banks, whether private or state-owned banks, have taken the necessary bureaucratic steps, regarding rejoining the SWIFT system,” the official said on Friday.
SWIFT did not respond to a request for comment on the status of communication between Iranian and international banks on its system.
Aghili added: “SWIFT has been turned on – it has always been on. The main issue has been we did not have proper correspondent banking relationships with so many banks around the world and because of sanctions, our SWIFTs remained unanswered.”
Middle East Bank, which is smaller than state-owned players such as Bank Melli, Bank Mellat and Bank Saderat, is owned by investors including small and medium-sized Iranian firms.
‘IRAN VERY ATTRACTIVE’
While international banks are expected to link up with their Iranian counterparts via SWIFT, Iran will also be looking to encourage foreign institutions to expand involvement in the country’s financial system.
But for many foreign banks, there are concerns about being caught up in ongoing U.S. sanctions.
Many international sanctions relating to Iran’s nuclear program were lifted but most involving U.S. measures remain in place. Non-U.S. banks may trade with Iran without fear of punishment in the United States but U.S. banks may not do so, directly or indirectly.
Washington’s sanctions prevent U.S. nationals, banks and insurers from trading with Iran and also prohibit any trades with Iran in U.S. dollars from being processed via the U.S. financial system. This is a significant complication given the dollar’s role as the world’s main business currency.
European banks are also cautious – with some, including Deutsche Bank , remembering past fines from U.S. regulators for breaking sanctions, though Commerzbank has said it is reviewing its policy of not doing business in Iran.
The Iranian central bank official said banks from European countries including Germany, France, Britain and Italy, had been in talks to open branches after the lifting of sanctions.
“God willing, soon we will witness that too. Iran is a very attractive market for business and they know that,” the official said.
By contrast, Aghili said he expected bigger banks to wait at least six to 12 months before they would look at doing serious business in the country.
“The smaller banks who do not have that involvement in the U.S. market will be prepared to work with Iranian banks,” Aghili said. “But even these smaller banks expect proper anti-money laundering checks and they have to check it and they will also require counter-parties to check it.”
‘WE CAN DEAL IN EUROS’
Aghili said the big banks would probably not risk immediate involvement in the country, partly because of their involvement in the United States and any possibility that international sanctions could be re-imposed.
“When they see smaller banks are satisfied that we are performing up to international standards that are required, they will slowly come into the picture,” he said.
He added it was “a bit too much to expect for the time being” for Commerzbank to consider entering the market and expected more of the smaller landesbank and sparkasse lenders in Germany to be in “round one”.
The CEO also said he did not see the dollar curbs as a major obstacle for Iran’s banks to resume trading. “We can deal in euros, in Swiss francs – all the non-U.S. currencies,” he said.
“Many of the neighboring countries, their foreign exchange or their currencies are pegged to the U.S. whether it’s the UAE or Qatar or any of these countries – their currency could be used for transactions instead of the dollar.”
Aghili also said he anticipated the Iranian central bank would at some point force lenders to adhere to international capital standards, known as Basel III, a move that would press them to bolster their balance sheets.
“My understanding is the central bank is seriously considering commanding a certain capital increase by many of the Iranian banks, he said.
The senior central bank official declined to comment when asked about possible measures.

Thunderhawk:  Policy forum talks TPP, EU – Vietnam FTA
A trade policy forum was held in Hanoi on January 22nd with a focus on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the EU – Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and their impacts on Vietnamese small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The TPP will have strong influence on Vietnam’s economy once it takes effect, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Trade Promotion Agency. The country’s GDP could expand by 11 percent while exports will rise 28 percent by 2025. The overseas shipments of key commodities like textile-garment, leather and footwear, and aquatic products will also increase sharply in the next decade.
The EVFTA will eliminate 99 percent of import tariffs on Vietnamese goods in the EU and vice versa after seven to 10 years. It is expected to raise Vietnam’s and the EU’s export revenue by 4 – 6 percent annually compared to the prior-EVFTA period.
The two trade deals will also pose major challenges to State agencies and businesses in addition to potential massive economic benefits.
Strong tariff cuts will trigger an influx of foreign goods with lower prices. It means domestic companies are facing fierce competition while their products must satisfy stringent rules of origin, and they have to prepare for issues regarding dumping, subsidies and trade remedies.
Economist Pham Chi Lan said Vietnamese SMEs will benefit much from the EVFTA thanks to better trade liberisation and regional connectivity, an expanded global value chain and optimised competitive edges.
While tariff barriers against almost all export commodities will be removed, import expenses will be reduced and supply sources – especially of technology and intermediate equipment and products, will become more diverse. Vietnamese firms will also profit from a fairer business climate both at home and abroad, a more robust market economy mechanism, and better investor protection, she noted.
Claudio Dordi , Chief Advisor of the European Trade Policy and Investment Support Project (EU – MUTRAP), suggested Vietnamese businesses pay heed to rules of origin of textile and garment products – a big foreign currency earner, and comply with international technical and hygiene standards, especially those of the EU.
The EU is not the only market and Vietnamese companies should seek other related export destinations, he added.
Dordi also told the country to provide its enterprises with details about the EVFTA and other trade pacts. Meanwhile, national and local strategies need to be designed to assess geographical indications and develop recognisable brands to fuel overseas shipments./.[/size]

Thunderhawk:  Twelve nations to debate increasing TPP to extra nations
 
Japan, the USA and 10 different nations that reached a broad Trans-Pacific Partnership deal final October will talk about the attainable participation of newcomers within the regional commerce bloc, Jiji Press discovered Friday.

On the two-day ministerial assembly on Feb. three and four, the 12 nations will begin full-fledged discussions on attainable TPP enlargement, allowing for early participation by South Korea and Taiwan, in line with the sources.
The assembly will cowl the remedy of nations and areas that hope to hitch the TPP treaty after it comes into drive.
Participation after the treaty comes into impact would require approval by all 12 members. Hoping to hitch the treaty early, South Korea and Taiwan have began preparations, together with bilateral talks with some members.
With regard to Japan, a key challenge can be South Korean and Taiwanese tariffs on Japanese cars and electronics.
Amongst different Asian nations, the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia have expressed their willingness to hitch the TPP.
On the ministerial assembly, the 12 nations may also talk about whether or not to arrange a secretariat for the treaty, in accordance with the sources.
At present, New Zealand, a key participant within the Pacific 4 deal, the predecessor of the TPP, serves as working-degree coordinator among the many 12 nations.
New Zealand Commerce Minister Murray McCully, as chairman of the ministerial assembly, is seen as more likely to suggest the institution of a secretariat to which every member nation will ship an official.
