The solidarity of the European Union would be impacted if countries in the bloc chose Chinese or Russian COVID-19 vaccines which have not yet been approved, French European Affairs minister Clement Beaune said on Friday. "If they went to choose the Chinese and/or Russian vaccine, I think it would be quite serious," Beaune told RTL radio. Russia's Sputnik V vaccine has already been approved or is being assessed for approval in three states in the EU bloc's eastern wing - Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic - as delays hamper vaccination programmes across the EU.
Australia's prime minister on Friday played down the impact of Italy's landmark decision to block the export of 250,000 Covid-19 vaccine doses due to be delivered.
(Bloomberg) -- China’s most senior officials gathered in Beijing to kick off the annual full-session of the country’s parliament, the National People’s Congress.Chinese Premier Li Keqiang unveiled a conservative target for economic growth this year of above 6% that signals more restrained monetary and fiscal policies this year, in contrast to other major nations still pumping in stimulus. But China’s new five-year plan that runs through 2025 didn’t give a numeric target for average growth.What to Know:Click here to read more on this year’s NPCEverything you need to knowFull NPC reports. Highlights hereA QuickTake explainer on the NPCWhat analysts say to watch out for this yearBloomberg Intelligence previews the NPC. Reaction to GDP goalHow China plans to be greener by 2025Clips of other reactions here and here. Key takeaways hereLatest developments: (Time-stamps are local time in Beijing)Upcoming Events: Foreign Minister, 5-Year Plan BriefingKey upcoming NPC events that have been announced so far include:March 7, afternoon — Foreign Minister Wang Yi speaks to mediaMarch 8, 10 a.m. — NDRC Vice Chairman Ning Jizhe discusses 14th five-year plan at briefingMarch 8, 3 p.m. — NPC plenary session, with delegates listening to work reports delivered by NPC standing committee chairman, head of of the supreme court and the top procuratorMarch 11, 3 p.m. — NPC closing session. Delegates will vote on work reports, 14th Five-Year Plan, and other legislative revisions including decision on revising Hong Kong’s electoral systemMaskless Xi (2:22 p.m.)Despite being one of the first countries in the world to authorize vaccines for use, China has said nothing about the vaccination status of its top leaders, who all — including President Xi Jinping — appeared without face masks in Beijing Friday, mingling with thousands of delegates from across China at the country’s biggest political gathering of the year.While officials seated in the rows behind them were all masked, Xi and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang moved around the Great Hall of the People, where the National People’s Congress is opened every year, mask-free. The exception seemed to apply only to members of the Politburo and a handful of other top Communist Party leaders. Xi also went without a mask at last year’s NPC, seen as a statement on China’s virus success with the Wuhan outbreak largely quelled.Export to Rise More Than 50% (2:20 p.m.)China’s exports may have risen more than 50% in January to February, He Lifeng, head of the nation’s economic planning agency, said in a group interview. Power consumption and generation increased by more than 20%, the economy kept improving in the first two months, though the external environment poses challenges to the Chinese economy, he said.Family Offices Overhaul (12:30 p.m.)Xiao Gang, former chairman of China’s securities regulator, proposed revising the nation’s family trust law, saying impediments such as high taxes have forced many family trusts to hoard cash rather than make investments, according to the China Securities Journal.Assets controlled by China’s wealthiest people are expected to double from 2019 to 116 trillion yuan ($18 trillion) by 2025, according to UBS Global Research. But according to a Credit Suisse Group AG report in October, wealth inequality has also risen rapidly, estimating that the country had 5.8 million millionaires and 21,100 residents had wealth of above $50 million — more than any country except the U.S. — at the end of 2019.Steelmakers Optimistic (12:27 p.m.)Chinese steelmakers are optimistic for this year as the nation’s efforts to decarbonize and consolidate the industry continue, the China Economic Times reported, citing steel mill executives at the National People’s Congress. Demand will improve this year, benefiting from high growth targets set by local governments at the start of the 14th five-year plan, according to Xia Wenyong, chairman of Xinyu Iron & Steel Group. Steel production may drop marginally after the country’s pledge to cut output from a record high last year, said Li Lijian, chairman of Anyang Iron & Steel Group.Feeding 1.4 Billion Mouths (12:25 p.m.)China rolled out a roadmap to boost crop production in the world’s most populous nation, highlighting concerns over food security after the country imported record amounts of meat, corn and soybeans last year. Measures include creating agricultural belts devoted to large-scale farming and providing sufficient subsidies to motivate grain farmers, according to the latest five-year plan that sets out key economic and political goals through 2025.Food security is moving to the top of the government’s agenda after the coronavirus pandemic and outbreaks of African swine fever raised concerns over whether China could guarantee food supplies for its 1.4 billion people. Imports of meat and grains surged last year, driving global prices higher and stoking worries over food inflation.Fresh Blow to Tech Giants (12:27 p.m.)China called on its technology giants to share key data, dealing a further blow to the companies already reeling from heightened antitrust scrutiny.Companies are encouraged to open up data related to areas from search to e-commerce and social media, in order to promote the healthy development of the sharing and online economies, according to a government report outlining the Communist Party’s top priorities for the next five years. Beijing is also establishing a platform for sharing public and government data.China also pledged to boost spending and drive research into cutting-edge chips and artificial intelligence in its latest five-year targets, laying out a technological blueprint to vie for global influence with the U.S.Biosecurity (11:45 a.m.)China plans to ramp up the construction and management of biosecurity labs to prepare for future emerging diseases, while it also grapples with allegations from the U.S. that the coronavirus outbreak could have resulted from a lab leak.The country seeks to “comprehensively enhance biosecurity governance capabilities” by improving its monitoring and emergence preparedness, according to a document outlining major policy priorities through 2025. The report was released Friday as lawmakers from the world’s second-largest economy meet in Beijing for the annual parliamentary session.More Oversight of Ant? (11:30 a.m.)China plans to step up oversight of financial holding companies and the nation’s booming fintech industry, Premier Li Keqiang said, setting the tone for closer scrutiny over the next five years of behemoths including Jack Ma’s Ant Group Co.The authorities will also expand an anti-monopoly crackdown and prevent the “unregulated” expansion of capital to create fair competition, Li said Friday at the opening of the National People’s Congress. The fintech sector should be developed in a “prudent” manner and China aims to create a “deviation correction” mechanism to fix and suspend innovative financial products when needed, according to a separate plan covering policies for 2021 to 2025.China’s policymakers are walking a fine line of trying to curb risks at home while encouraging local champions as the economy opens wider to foreign capital. Fintech has become the latest target of scrutiny since the nation’s leaders pledged in 2017 to clean up threats to its $53 trillion financial industry, tackling property loans, opaque wealth management products and fraud-riddled peer-to-peer lending.Overhauling H.K. Electoral System (11:16 a.m.)China is curbing the ability of democracy activists to win elections in Hong Kong, with local reports saying a vote for the territory’s legislature would be delayed another year to September 2022.The National People’s Congress will review a draft resolution on changes to Hong Kong’s electoral system in the coming days, according to an agenda published Thursday by the official Xinhua News Agency. For weeks Chinese President Xi Jinping and other officials have called for “patriots” to run Hong Kong, effectively signaling that anybody deemed disloyal to Beijing couldn’t hold a leadership position.Separately, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said the city will amend local election legislation after China’s top legislative body passes new election rules for the city’s leader and lawmakers. The amendments will be tabled at the legislature for vetting, the principle of “patriots ruling Hong Kong” is fully in line with constitutional requirements of the city and “One Country, Two Systems” will be placed in jeopardy if forces that oppose China and stir up trouble in Hong Kong enter the political system via elections, she said.Tackling Housing (11:02 a.m.)China pledged to solve the housing problem in large cities at its top legislative session, as monetary loosening after the pandemic spurred a rush to real estate in the biggest hubs, pushing home affordability there to the worst ever.“We will address prominent housing issues in large cities,” Premier Li Keqiang said. Li echoed President Xi Jinping’s mantra that houses are “for living in, not for speculation” in the key report, signaling that policy makers may maintain a tight rein on the bubble-prone sector. “We will keep the prices of land and housing as well as market expectations stable,” he said.Boosting Usage of Non-Fossil Fuels (10:52 a.m.)In its 14th 5-year plan released Friday, China said it plans non-fossil fuels to account for 20% of energy use by 2025, versus 15% at the end of 2019. The country is also targeting it nuclear power capacity to increase about 40% to 70 gigawatts by 2025.China will also boost oil-and-gas exploration, expand its gas pipeline network, improve coal transportation and increase its ability to ensure supply.More Charging Stations for Electric Cars (10:40 a.m.)China aims to boost auto sales and add more charging facilities for electric vehicles this year. The government will encourage “steady increases” in spending on cars and “abolish excessive restrictions” on the sale of used vehicles, Premier Li Keqiang said Friday. More car parks, EV charging stations and battery-swapping facilities will be built, and battery recycling systems developed at a faster pace, Li said.Premier Calls for Breakthroughs in Core Tech (10:29 a.m.)In his address Friday, Premier Li Keqiang outlined steps the government will take to make China into a global tech power. That includes building more national laboratories and innovation centers, as well as ramping up efforts to implement a little-heard of program called the Sci-Tech Innovation 2030 Agenda. Li also said China’s R&D spending will increase by more than 7% per year, which “is expected to account for a higher percentage of GDP” than during the previous five-year plan.Defense Budget Growth Fastest in Two Years (10:20 a.m.)China’s defense spending is expected to grow 6.8% this year to 1.35 trillion yuan ($208 billion), according a budget report released today. That would be the fastest pace in two years. “We will boost military training and preparedness across the board, make overall plans for responding to security risks in all areas and for all situations,” Premier Li Keqiang said in his work report.Boosting Trade with U.S. Allies (10:05 a.m.)China may join an Asia-Pacific trade pact comprised of key U.S. allies that former President Donald Trump exited, Premier Li Keqiang said Friday. In his work report, Li said Beijing “will actively consider joining” the 11-nation agreement known as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership. It includes nations that China has sparred with recently such as Australia, Canada and Japan.China Stocks Fall 10% From Recent Peak (9:59 a.m.)Chinese markets opened as Premier Li Keqiang was delivering his work report at the NPC and continued their recent slide, with the benchmark CSI 300 Index dropping as much as 2% at the start of trading. That put the index down 10% from a peak reached on Feb. 10. The rout has come amid growing concern that Beijing will begin to tighten liquidity conditions as the country’s economy recovers from the effects of the coronavirus.Cuts in Carbon Emissions (09:43 a.m.)China will devise a plan for carbon emissions to peak by 2030 and is targeting an 18% cut per unit of GDP by 2025, according to Premier Li’s work report. The nation will also aim for a 3% reduction in energy consumption per unit of GDP in 2021 and a 13.5% reduction by 2025.Tencent’s Pony Ma Makes Proposals (09:16 a.m.)Tencent founder and Chief Executive Pony Ma, who is an NPC delegate, is attending this year’s event in Beijing and submitted a proposal for better preserving China’s natural resources. Ma’s whereabouts have attracted attention after he skipped last year’s NPC and was also absent from several major Tencent events due to health reasons.China Sets Modest GDP Target for 2021 (09:00 a.m.)China set a conservative economic growth target of above 6% for the year, well below what economists forecast, and outlined ongoing fiscal support to keep the country’s recovery going. Other key economic targets include:Fiscal deficit target set at 3.2% of GDP for 2021, versus 3.6% in 2020CPI target set at 3% for 2021, versus around 3.5% in 2020Target for new urban job creation set at 11 million in 2021, versus 9 million in 2020Special government bond quota set at 3.65 trillion yuan in 2021, versus 3.75 trillion yuan in 2020For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

The Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthi group in Yemen said it destroyed an armed drone fired towards the kingdom on Friday, part of an attack the Houthis claimed to have launched into southern Saudi Arabia at dawn. The Houthis have recently stepped up cross-border drone and missile attacks on Saudi cities, mostly targeting the southern part of the kingdom. The Houthis fired the intercepted drone towards Khamis Mushait near the Yemen border on Friday, Saudi state news agency SPA said.

(Bloomberg) -- Credit Suisse Group AG plans to wind down a $10 billion group of supply chain finance funds linked to financier Lex Greensill that it suspended this week because of valuation concerns.The Swiss bank said it will make the first payments to investors -- amounting to approximately 80% of the available cash and cash equivalents -- on about March 8 for the Luxembourg-domiciled funds and later the same week for the Liechtenstein-domiciled fund, according to a statement from the bank on Friday. Payments will be made in several installments.The bank said previously the funds had about $3.7 billion in cash.Credit Suisse earlier this week suspended redemptions, in part because a major insurer for the securities in the funds refused to provide coverage on new notes. The decision sent ripple effects across the globe and prompted Greensill Capital to seek a buyer for its operations. The parent company is currently in talks on its survival and is in the process of filing for insolvency in the U.K., people familiar with the matter said.Swiss asset manager GAM Holding AG also earlier this week decided to shutter its $842 million GAM Greensill Supply Chain Finance Fund and return investors’ moneyIn an update to investors earlier this week, Credit Suisse said that it was looking for ways to return cash in the funds. It also said that Greensill’s German Bank -- which has effectively been shuttered by regulators -- was one of the insured parties and plays a role in the claims process for the insured notes.Many of the assets in the funds have such protection to make them more appealing for investors seeking alternatives to money markets. But the second-biggest of them, the High Income Fund, doesn’t use insurance. It’s also the fund with the least liquidity, with just 16% of the $1.8 billion in net assets in cash.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Frankfurt | Zurich - 05 March 2021 - The board of directors of 21Shares AG is delighted to announce a world first and the taking of another leap forward towards the institutionalisation of crypto assets by planning to list Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) tracking two of the most popular crypto assets - Ethereum (ticker: 21XE) and Bitcoin Cash (21XC) - on the regulated market of Deutsche Boerse XETRA on March 9th, 2021 subject to the approval by the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Following the first listing in July and September 2020 of the 21Shares Bitcoin ETP (21XB) and Short Bitcoin ETP (21XS) on XETRA, the Swiss ETP issuer adds two more ETPs with assets already exceeding 100 million USD. A Central Clearing counterparty (CCP) adds essential benefits like standardisation, risk reduction and operational efficiency, which is further accelerating the institutionalisation of crypto ETPs. 21Shares believes this innovation delivers enhanced liquidity and reduces trading costs as central clearing expands the pool of eligible counterparties to trade with beyond having to clear bilaterally. “While other issuers continue to follow our steps in listing a Bitcoin ETP on a stock exchange, we had time to build the infrastructure and actively conduct regulatory lobbying for other innovative crypto assets and issuances.” Hany Rashwan, CEO 21Shares AG commented. “This is why we were the first to list an Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash ETP on the Swiss stock exchange and we are now leveraging our expertise to provide investors in the DACH region and beyond with the same institutional reach, safety and cost effective ways to gain exposure to crypto assets. After the immensely successful launch of the first Polkadot ETP just a month ago, we are working on several more launches in the second and third quarter. In this way, we aim to lead the adoption of crypto assets into conventional asset allocations.” The 21Shares Ethereum ETP (AETH SW - CH0454664027) and the 21Shares Bitcoin Cash ETP (ABCH SW - CH0475552201), are fully collateralized using Coinbase as independent regulated institutional grade custodian, debuted on the Swiss stock market in mid 2019 and have a performance of 116.3% and 53.0% with annual management fees of 1.49% and 2.50% respectively. Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus in Europe in March 2020, Bitcoin has seen a sharp increase in price from around $5,000 to $49,000 in March 2021. The asset appreciation was accompanied by a surge in interest from both the general public and for the first time larger corporations. Companies including the likes of Paypal, Square, Microstrategy and, as of late, the global electric car manufacturer Tesla have added Bitcoin to their balance sheets. While there is already an abundance of Bitcoin financial products on the market, there is a significant lack of institutional-grade products for other large-volume crypto assets. 21Shares AG has been pioneering the institutionalisation of crypto assets into portfolio allocation since listing the first and only crypto basket ETP (HODL) on the Swiss stock exchange in November 2018. Since then, the issuer has launched a total of 12 different crypto ETPs to market, most recently the only Polkadot ETP (ADOT) in February 2021 with assets under management in the product already exceeding $30m. The Swiss issuer is the only crypto focused ETP issuer with such breadth and depth and has since secured its position as the leading crypto ETP issuer globally reaching $1 billion in assets under management in February 2021. Assetgrowth This regulatory landmark of the first Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash ETPs on Deutsche Boerse XETRA brings the total of centrally cleared ETPs offered by 21Shares in Germany to 4 and further extends its lead on any European exchanges which further demonstrate the demand by institutional investors to allocate crypto assets in conventional portfolio allocation using crypto ETPs. This listing on Germany’s largest regulated stock exchange becomes the third stock exchange globally to offer Ethereum and a Bitcoin Cash ETP. The Ethereum ETP has also been admitted to listing on the regulated market of the Wiener Boerse since September 2020. About 21Shares Founded in 2018, 21Shares AG (formerly Amun) is the leading crypto fintech issuer of ETP in Switzerland. It aims to make investing in crypto assets as easy as buying shares using your conventional broker or bank. Investors can invest in cryptocurrencies using a conventional ETP structure (or tracker) easily, in total confidence and cost-effectively thanks to the 21Shares suite of ETPs now composed of 12 Crypto ETPs : the 21Shares Crypto Basket Index ETP (HODL:SW), 21Shares Bitcoin (ABTC:SW | 21XB:GY), 21Shares Ethereum (AETH:SW | 21XE GY), 21Shares XRP (AXRP:SW | 21XX:GR), 21Shares Bitcoin Cash ETP (ABCH:SW | 21XC:GY), 21Shares Binance ETP (ABNB:SW), 21Shares Tezos ETP (AXTZ:SW), 21shares Bitcoin Suisse ETP (ABBA:SW), 21Shares Bitwise 10 ETP (KEYS:SW), Sygnum Platform Winners Index ETP (MOON:SW), 21Shares Short Bitcoin ETP (SBTC:SW | 21XS:GY), 21Shares Polkadot ETP (ADOT:SW | PDOT:GR). The entire suite is listed on a regulated framework on the official market of Deutsche Boerse, SIX Swiss Exchange, BX Swiss, the Wiener Boerse and MTF on Börse Stuttgart, Tradegate and Gettex in CHF, USD, GBP and EUR respectively. Incorporated and headquartered in the canton of Zug, with offices in Zurich and New York, the company has launched several world firsts, including the first listed crypto basket index (HODL) ETP in November 2018 and currently manages assets of one billion US Dollars. In order to always be up to date, 21Shares AG has established an in-house research team.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes his former club need to make a big splash in the transfer market this summer in order to rediscover their lost goal threat. The defending Premier League champions - with just 10 points to their name from 11 top-flight matches in 2021 - have been left with an uphill battle in a fight just to make the top four this season after suffering an unprecedented fifth straight home defeat against Chelsea at Anfield. Previously dominant and free-scoring Liverpool drew a blank once again on Thursday night in a game won by Mason Mount’s quality first-half strike and have now gone more than 10 hours without scoring from open play at home.
