DSI's capital reduction plan was one of the conditions for investment by Tabarak.  The firm didn't reveal specific information on where the capital injection will be spent. GBCM Morning Briefing 9
  10. GCC News GCC will see 'modest' growth until 2019, says World Bank (Source: Arabian Business)  GCC economic growth is expected to pick up gradually between now and 2019, but oil production cuts continue to weigh on recovery, according to a World Bank report.  Growth will rise from around 1.3% in 2017 to 2.6 percent in 2019, the World Bank projects in the first edition of its new Gulf Economic Monitor, to be produced half-yearly.  The report indicates that, although growth in the non-oil sector has bottomed out, overall growth will remain weighed down by oil production cuts.  Regional fiscal and current account balances are expected to improve, but they are unlikely to return to pre-2014 double-digit surpluses, and the contribution from net exports to growth is expected to remain small over the short-to-medium term.  Geopolitical developments in the region continue to bring downside risks, while OPEC’s production cuts could also be undercut by quickacting non-conventional energy producers in North America, the World Bank said.  Still, oil prices are set to stabilise at close to current levels and the pace of fiscal austerity is slowing. With wider economic reforms planned in the region, spending and sentiment in the non-oil sector will continue to lift over the coming 18 months, according to the report. Saudi Oger said to close down, lay off staff by June end (Source: Argaam)  Saudi Arabia’s labor ministry will transfer employees of financially-troubled Saudi Oger to other firms, amid reports that the construction firm has decided to lay off its staff and shut down offices by the end of this month, as per news sources.  As many as 8,000 employees are working for the giant construction group, including 1,200 Saudis, and the ministry is aiming to transfer about 600 Saudis to other companies.  The Human Resources Development Fund (HADAF) was also ordered to find jobs for the remaining Saudi employees. Meanwhile, a total of 6,000 expatriates will be moved to other companies.  According to an AFP report, the company’s last day of existence would be June 30. GBCM Morning Briefing 10
