(Bloomberg) -- Norway’s central bank may raise its main interest rate as early as this year, well ahead of peers, after economists found hints in its latest statement pointing to a more upbeat assessment of the future.Norges Bank, which kept its benchmark deposit rate at zero as expected, said its official stance remains that the first rate hike is likely to come in early 2022. But the bank also signaled that the prospect of bringing the pandemic under control seemed slightly brighter than previously assumed, in part thanks to Norway’s fast rollout of its vaccine program.The krone rose about 0.4% against the euro, and was up 0.7% versus the dollar.Norges Bank’s statement “was surprisingly hawkish, if you read between the lines,” Nordea analysts Dane Cekov and Kjetil Olsen said in a note to clients. Aside from the bank’s assessment of Norway’s vaccine program, the economists also pointed to its “unusual” decision to highlight market expectations, which point to a rate increase in December.Unlike most of its peers, Norges Bank has steered clear of unconventional measures such as quantitative easing, with much of Norway’s economic stimulus coming via fiscal policy. The government has relied on its $1.3 trillion wealth fund more than ever to boost spending, which has helped shield the economy from the coronavirus crisis.What Bloomberg Economics Says ...“With house prices on the rise and only a mild downturn from new virus restrictions we believe it’s right to factor in some probability of that first rate hike coming sooner than shown in the rate path.”\-- Johanna Jeansson, Bloomberg economistMeanwhile, Norway boasts the rich world’s lowest real benchmark interest rate. And although headline inflation is below the 2% target, core inflation is well above, at 3%. That’s in part why economists are predicting Norges Bank will move ahead with rate hikes sooner than others.Norway has been less affected by the coronavirus pandemic than many other countries, and Prime Minister Erna Solberg has even been able to ease some restrictions as cases recede. The economy probably exceeded the central bank’s growth estimates for the end of 2020, but the timing of a potential rate increase will ultimately depend on how quickly Norway can complete its vaccination program.“Owing to the increase in infection rates and stricter containment measures from the beginning of January, the slowdown in the economy may persist somewhat longer than projected in the December Report,” Norges Bank said. “On the other hand, vaccination is well under way, and it appears that the vaccination rollout will be somewhat faster than assumed earlier. Vaccination and the winding down of containment measures will boost growth further out in 2021.”Read More: Norway Is Seen Leading the Way in Post-Covid Interest Rate HikesThursday’s announcement by Norges Bank was a so-called interim decision, with no new forecasts and no press conference.(Updates with analyst comments, details on vaccine outlook from first paragraph)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.
As the U.S. enters “what may well be the toughest and deadliest period of the virus,” President Joe Biden is putting forth a national COVID-19 strategy to ramp up vaccinations and testing, reopen schools and businesses and increase the use of masks — including a requirement that they be worn for travel. Biden also will address inequities in hard-hit minority communities as he signs 10 pandemic-related executive orders on Thursday, his second day in office. “We need to ask average Americans to do their part," said Jeff Zients, the White House official directing the national response.

Major companies in the rail transport market include China Railway Corporation; Russian Railways; Indian Railways; Deutsche Bahn AG and Union Pacific Railroad. The global rail transport market is expected to grow from $468.New York, Jan. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Rail Transport Global Market Report 2021: COVID 19 Impact and Recovery to 2030" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06009760/?utm_source=GNW 57 billion in 2020 to $519.43 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.9%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $658.39 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 6%.The rail transport market consists of sales of rail transportation services and related goods by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that use trains to provide transport for passengers and/or cargo. Railroads operate either on networks with physical facilities, labor forces, and equipment spread over a wide geographic area or operate over a short distance on a local rail line. This market excludes street railroads, commuter rail, urban rapid transit, and scenic and sightseeing train transportation. The rail transport market is segmented into passenger rail transport and rail freight.Asia Pacific was the largest region in the global rail transport market, accounting for 42% of the market in 2020. Western Europe was the second largest region accounting for 21% of the global rail transport market. Africa was the smallest region in the global rail transport market.Advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) technology is becoming popular in rail transportation industry to optimize energy usage, enhance operational management, safety and aid in cost reduction. These systems provide automatic warning, protection, operation, supervision, and control arrangement. They also aid in meeting stringent government regulations towards passenger safety. Around 60 million units of advanced driver assistance systems were produced globally. Some companies providing these systems for locomotives are Thales Group, Alstom S.A., Bombardier Transportation Hitachi Ltd., CRRC Corporation limited, Ansaldo STS, and SIEMENS AG.Coronavirus Pandemic - The outbreak of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the rail transportation market in 2020 as governments-imposed lockdowns and restricted the movement of people and goods to contain the transmission. COVID 19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing. The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People’s Republic of China and spread globally including Western Europe, North America and Asia. Steps by national governments to contain the transmission have resulted in a decline in economic activity with countries entering a state of ’lock down’ and the outbreak is expected to continue to have a negative impact on businesses throughout 2020 and into 2021. However, it is expected that the rail transportation market will recover from the shock across the forecast period as it is a ’black swan’ event and not related to ongoing or fundamental weaknesses in the market or the global economy. Faster Economic Growth - The rail transportation services market growth is aided by stable economic growth forecasted in many developed and developing countries. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicts that the global GDP growth will be 3.3% in 2020 and 3.4% in 2021. Recovering commodity prices, after a significant decline in the historic period is further expected to aid the market growth. Developed economies are also expected to register stable growth during the forecast period. Additionally, emerging markets are expected to continue to grow slightly faster than the developed markets in the forecast period. Stable economic growth is expected to increase investments in end user markets, thereby driving the market during forecast period.Read the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p06009760/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.
