  2. Macroeconomic & Corporate News CBJ, Energy Ministry sign agreement on online bill payment Governor of the Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ) and Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources on Sunday signed an agreement to implement the online bill payment services (eFAWATEERcom) to facilitate the online payment of the latter's services. The agreement was signed by CBJ Governor Ziad Fariz and Energy Minister Saleh Kharabsheh. Fariz said that signing the agreement represented a paradigm shift for the various economic sectors that can now use the e-payment system to pay for five of the services the Energy Ministry provides, highlighting that eFAWATEERcom now includes 33 government institutions offering 50 services. "We have been looking forward to this step for years as part of the digital transformation the country is witnessing and we hope in the future not only five services are e-paid, but the entire services the ministry provides," said Kharabsheh. Oil, gold to gain post Western strike on Syria Gold and oil will extend their gains on Monday, albeit modestly, when the markets open for the first time since Western powers launched a missile attack on Syria, but equities and bonds are unlikely to suffer big losses unless the West strikes again or Russia retaliates. "The newsflow is actually better than what it looked like at one point during last week as the strike was surgical, followed by a pullback. Reports show a lot of care was taken not to hit Russian targets, which is a good sign and the market should take heart from that," said Salman Ahmed, chief investment strategist at Lombard Odier investment managers in London. Gold has benefited in recent days as a safe-haven asset amid a US-China trade dispute and the escalating conflict in Syria, which also pushed oil above $70 per barrel due to concerns about a spike in Middle Eastern tensions. King meets leaders over ties, region His Majesty King Abdullah on Sunday, on the sidelines of the Arab summit in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, met with High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini over strategic cooperation and partnership relations between the Kingdom and the union. The meeting focused on Middle East crises and the latest developments in Syria, with King Abdullah and Mogherini urging a political solution that preserves Syria’s territorial integrity and unity of its people, according to a Royal Court statement. They also reviewed updates on the peace process and underlined the need to intensify international efforts to resume serious and effective negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis, based on the two-state solution, in a way that leads to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital. . * Source: Bloomberg, Jordan Times, Zawya Disclaimer Awraq Investments and its affiliates obtain information from sources they believe to be reliable, but do not warrant its accuracy or fitness for a particular purpose, and disclaim for themselves and their information providers all liability arising from the use.
