(Bloomberg) -- Sweden has banned Huawei Technologies Co. and ZTE Corp. from gaining access to its fifth-generation wireless network, adding to the increasing number of European governments forcing local telecom companies to shift away from Chinese suppliers.The Swedish Post and Telecom Authority said in a statement Tuesday that the “influence of China’s one-party state over the country’s private sector brings with it strong incentives for privately owned companies to act in accordance with state goals and the communist party’s national strategies.”The authority said that the two Chinese technology giants’ equipment must be removed from existing infrastructure used for 5G frequencies by January 2025.The U.S. has described Huawei as the “backbone” of surveillance efforts by the Chinese communist party, and is pressuring European governments to block the technology company from gaining access to 5G networks. The U.K. has already imposed an outright ban on Huawei’s 5G equipment, while German Chancellor Angela Merkel has so far hesitated to follow suit.The exclusion is “unfair and unacceptable” and “simply based on groundless presumption,” and would hurt competition, Huawei said in emailed comments. A representative for ZTE didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment outside of regular business hours.Sweden should provide open and nondiscriminatory business conditions for Chinese companies based on market rules, the Chinese embassy in Sweden said in a statement. Huawei has previously denied being a security threat, and Chinese officials have labeled the bans by European governments as “gross interference.”Finland’s Nokia Oyj and Sweden’s Ericsson AB have been the major beneficiaries of the ban on using Huawei equipment, with the two companies forming an effective duopoly on 5G gear. In the U.K., many carriers now need to swap out some of their Huawei 4G technology for Nokia and Ericsson equipment before installing 5G.The hostility from the U.S. and its allies has damaged the meteoric rise of Huawei, China’s biggest tech firm, which has helped build 5G networks in more than 10 countries and was expected to do the same in another 20 this year. Customers have now begun to shift to other suppliers. Last month, Nokia extended its relationship with BT Group Plc to supply the British phone company with 5G gear.ZTE, Huawei’s much smaller rival, almost collapsed after the U.S. Commerce Department banned it from buying American technology for three months in 2018. Both ZTE and Huawei are set to be shut out of India’s plans to roll out its 5G networks.A representative for ZTE did not immediately respond to a request for comment outside of regular business hours.Tele2 AB, Sweden’s second largest telecom company, has used Huawei for its 4G equipment, and noted on its earnings call Tuesday that the Chinese company was “doing a great job” but they had planned for the possibility of a ban.PTS granted access to new 5G installations to Hi3G Access, Net4Mobility, Telia Sverige and Teracom. The approval means the companies can participate in Sweden’s 3.5 GHz and 2.3 GHz auctions, which are key to its 5G build-out.(Updates with comment from Huawei in fifth paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Supermarket chain Albertsons (NYSE: ACI) saw revenue jump 11% to $15.76 billion in the second quarter as the coronavirus pandemic keeps consumers out of restaurants and in their own kitchens cooking dinner.

Berlin's municipal government on Tuesday made it compulsory to wear masks at markets, in queues and on 10 busy shopping streets, but stopped short of imposing another lockdown to curb a new wave of coronavirus infections in the German capital. Berlin's incidence of the virus has risen to 87.9 cases per 100,000 residents over a seven day rolling period, almost double the national average of 45.4, the latest figures from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases showed. Mayor Michael Mueller urged the capital's residents to comply with the new, tighter rules, which also included limits on parties, to avoid shutting down public life again.

A prominent European Jewish organization slammed a Munich auction house's decision to sell several of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler's handwritten speech notes, saying Tuesday it “defies logic, decency and humanity” to put them on the market. Rabbi Menachem Margolin, the head of the Brussels-based European Jewish Association, said the upcoming sale of the manuscripts is particularly worrisome amid recent figures showing rising anti-Semitism in Germany, and could encourage neo-Nazis. “What auctions like this do help legitimize Hitler enthusiasts who thrive on this sort of stuff.”
(Bloomberg) -- The European Union’s first offering of social bonds drew orders of more than 233 billion euros ($275 billion), likely to be the biggest ever for any debt deal.The bloc’s 17-billion-euro, two-part sale was nearly 14 times subscribed. The orderbooks easily topped the $120 billion of demand seen for CVS Health Corp.’s corporate offering in 2018 and Italy’s previous European sovereign record of 108 billion euros, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.The sale marks the arrival of a major new safe asset, with investors drawn to a AAA credit rating and the fastest-growing part of sustainable finance. The offering, also the EU’s first joint debt since the bloc agreed a landmark pandemic recovery deal, is aimed at providing funding for a job support program.“I was expecting a three-digit book but not quite this high,” said Jan von Gerich, chief strategist at Nordea Bank Abp. “These bonds were clearly eagerly awaited, and these issues only strengthen the picture that there is a huge demand for bonds at the moment.”Social bonds are defined by funding for projects that help society, such as improving social welfare or serving disadvantaged populations. They are the “perfect financial response” to the shock that welfare systems experienced from the pandemic, according to a report by Maia Godemer, a research analyst for green and sustainable finance at BNEF.The bloc raised 10 billion euros from the sale of 10-year debt, and another 7 billion euros of 20-year securities. Given the size, the EU is already nearly a fifth of the way to achieving its goal to finance its 100-billion-euro SURE program, a temporary measure designed to help governments keep workers in jobs. Italy will be the biggest beneficiary, receiving around 27 billion euros.Yield GrabThe 10-year offering was priced at three basis points over midswaps, while the 20-year security was at 14 basis points over midswaps. While comparisons for this new debt are hard to make, the 10-year was set nearly one basis point higher than implied market spreads for existing EU bonds.“It’s another grab for yield,” James Athey, investment director at Aberdeen Standard Investments, said on Bloomberg TV. “You look at where it trades relative to Germany and you look at where it trades relative even to France, you would suggest this is high-quality paper with a yield pick-up against similarly-rated issuers in the region.”Read more: Europe’s Dream Of Safe Assets to Rival Treasuries Gets BoostIn yet another milestone, the deal helped bond sales across the region climb above 1.5 trillion euros in a year for the first time.Analysts have said the issuance could help lift the euro, with any sign of deeper integration among member states a boon for markets. The common currency rose as much as 0.6% to $1.1841.Demand for BondsDemand for European debt has hit all-time highs this year. In the social bond space the EU dwarfed previous records, with the former biggest deal held by French agency CADES -- which refinances and pays off social security debt -- in a recent 5 billion euro 10-year offering.The EU hired Barclays Plc, BNP Paribas SA, Deutsche Bank AG, Nomura and UniCredit SpA to oversee the sale.The bloc aims to sell as many social bonds as issued globally so far. The market is rapidly expanding, with this deal taking sales up five-fold this year to around $90 billion.“They could essentially be done with the SURE program now,” said Piet Christiansen, chief strategist at Danske Bank A/S.(Updates with results, pricing from sixth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
