Apparent oil need up as demand grows
1st July 2015

 CHINA’S apparent oil demand in May rose 8.2 percent from a year earlier to 43.8 million tons on the back of growing market across all oil product categories, according to a latest Platts analysis of Chinese government data.

“This was the fastest pace of growth since June 2013, when demand grew by 11.53 percent,” said Mriganka Jaipuriyar, Platts analyst for Asia oil. “Demand for all key products showed year-on-year increase in the month.”

During the first five months of this year, China’s total apparent oil demand averaged 10.45 million barrels per day, up 5.2 percent from the same period of 2014. This marked the fastest pace of year-to-date growth since 2011 and defied a weak macro-economic outlook.

China’s refinery throughput in May averaged 10.38 million barrels per day, up 7.4 percent from 2014, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed.

On the other hand, China was a net oil product exporter of 120,000 tons in May, according to latest data from the General Administration of Customs.

Demand for gasoil, the most widely consumed oil product in China, has been hit in the last three years because of declining economic growth. Yet apparent demand in May grew by a robust 7.4 percent annually to 15.39 million tons.

Chinese banks in top-4 profit spots globally
30th June 2015

 CHINA’S banks are strengthening their position as the best capitalized and biggest profit makers in the world, a study showed yesterday.

Chinese banks filled the top-four spots for profits across the industry in 2014 after making more than US$180 billion between them, according to The Banker magazine’s annual rankings of profits and capital strength. Chinese lenders collectively earned almost double the amount of their US rivals, the data showed.

The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China’s US$59.1 billion profit last year topped the rankings, ahead of China Construction Bank, the Agricultural Bank of China and the Bank of China.

US bank Wells Fargo ranked fifth with a US$33.8 billion profit, followed by JPMorgan and HSBC.

ICBC also topped The Bankers’ ranking of the strongest banks in the world for the third year, which is based on the amount of capital held, in amount rather than as a ratio of assets. The magazine says that method best reflects banks’ ability to lend on a large scale and endure shocks.

China had four names in the top-six strongest banks. There were four US banks in the top 10 — JPMorgan was third and Bank of America was fifth — and one British and one Japanese bank.

China’s big state-backed banks are growing in size and importance, fueled by their dominance of a huge domestic market. They are growing globally, but still have relatively modest overseas assets.

In contrast, some of the most international US and European banks are slipping down the rankings as they close businesses and shed assets to try to improve profitability.

HSBC slipped to ninth at the end of last year (from fifth in 2013) and Citigroup was seventh (from sixth). HSBC, Citi and Royal Bank of Scotland were the top-three banks in terms of capital just before the financial crisis in 2008.

The Banker said that in most regions banks increased their profits last year from 2013.

The best returns on capital were made by banks in South America at an average of 26 percent, followed by 24 percent for African banks, 19 percent in Asia and 15.5 percent in North America. Returns in Britain averaged 7.3 percent and lagged at 4.6 percent in the eurozone, The Banker said.

Hackers target users’ info security
26th June 2015

 CHINESE consumers should be more alert to information security risks in new gadgets and online services such as taxi-hailing applications, industry officials said at an Internet security forum yesterday.

Consumers have now become targets of hackers, Shanghai-based Internet security firm Keen said.

“Various O2O (online to offline) services have brought potential risks in people’s daily life,” said Wang Qi, chief executive of Keen, who used to work in Microsoft Corp.

Wang added that this situation creates a huge market potential for the information security industry.

Hackers, for example, are able to call more than 1,000 taxis at the same time or get information and other private data of thousands of users through loopholes present in Internet Plus apps like taxi-hailing and online housekeeping tools.

Besides smart devices like phones and computers, hackers can also target potential risks in new gadgets like drones and robots, according to experts who took part in a GeekPwn forum held by Keen and the Shanghai Youth League Committee.

A government-backed GeekPwn contest with total prize money of 5 million yuan (US$805,000) will be held in Shanghai in October.

Computer security experts, known as White Hats in the industry, will be asked to discover security weaknesses in new devices and apps as part of the contest.
