Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange (DGCX) announces the appointment of Bank of China (BOC), as a Settlement Bank for Dubai Commodities Clearing Corporation (DCCC) which is a wholly owned subsidiary of DGCX. With the addition of Bank of China, DCCC has expanded its network of Settlement Banks to five with Emirates NBD, Standard Chartered, HSBC and Bank of Baroda as existing Settlement Banks. Bank of China is the first Chinese bank to be appointed as a Settlement bank and would be operating through its Abu Dhabi branch. This partnership will enable DCCC members to open their settlement banks account and process their settlement obligations for the trades executed on DGCX along with other services offered by the Bank.

DCCC operates as a Central Counter Party (CCP) offering fully integrated clearing & settlement services and collateralization of exchange traded derivatives. DGCX/DCCC members and their clients benefit immensely from secured settlements and capital efficiency afforded to them via margin offsets and a wide range of collateral compared to any other CCPs in the region. DCCC has been the first CCP in the region to tie up with Euroclear and Clearstream to provide efficient collateral management solutions.

In 2015, Bank of China was enrolled again as a Global Systemically Important Financial Institutions (G-SIFI), becoming the sole financial institution from emerging economies to be enrolled for five consecutive years. Licensed by the Central Bank of the UAE as a wholesale branch, the Bank of China Abu Dhabi Branch started it operation in Jan 2015. The branch provides corporate and institutional banking services in 9 major currencies including RMB, AED and USD.

Gaurang Desai, Chief Executive Officer of DGCX said "We look forward to Bank of China joining our DGCX fraternity and provide our market participants with world class settlement services. Having such a world class organization complements DGCX strategy of diversification and we look forward to offer compelling value proposition for our customers with this partnership.

Mr. Tian Jun, General Manager of Bank of China Abu Dhabi branch said: “As a financial institution with the longest history in China, BOC is the most internationalized and diversified bank of the country. With two branches and a representative office in GCC, we entered this market in 2004. In May 2015, BOC and DGCX signed an MOU which set out a platform and a framework of cooperation in areas of common interest. Today’s Agreement will significantly accelerate the interaction and collaboration between the derivatives and financial markets of China and UAE. I believe this is a good opportunity to bring greater diversity to products available to investors in both China and UAE.

توقيف 41 شخصا في مظاهرات الجزائر

أعلنت المديرية العامة للأمن الوطني (الشرطة) الجزائرية، مساء الجمعة، توقيف 41 شخصا في مظاهرات شهدتها عدة مدن ضد ترشح الرئيس عبد العزيز بوتفليقة لولاية خامسة في انتخابات 18 أبريل/ نيسان القادم.

وأكدت إدارة الشرطة في بيان اطلعت عليه وكالة الاناضول أن عمليات التوقيف كانت بسبب “الإخلال بالنظام العام والاعتداء على القوة العامة وتحطيم الممتلكات” دون تقديم تفاصيل أكثر حول أماكن توقيف هؤلاء المتظاهرين.

والجمعة، استجاب آلاف المواطنين بعدة محافظات جزائرية، إلى دعوات للتظاهر تم تداولها عبر شبكات التواصل، ضد ترشح بوتفليقة (81 عاما) لولاية خامسة في انتخابات الرئاسة المقررة في 18 أبريل/ نيسان القادم.

واتسمت هذه المظاهرات بالسلمية في أغلب مناطق البلاد باستثناء حدوث مواجهات بين قوات مكافحة الشغب ومتظاهرين بوسط العاصمة خلال محاولتهم السير نحو القصر الرئاسي .

ووفق شهود عيان لجأت قوات الأمن إلى الغاز المسيل للدموع وتوقيف عدة أشخاص بعد تحذيرات للمتظاهرين وتعرضها للرشق بمقذوفات وحجارة قبل أن يتراجع المحتجون ويغادروا المكان.

وصبيحة اليوم نشر ناشطون معلومات عبر شبكات التواصل الاجتماعي حول توقيف عدد من زملائهم قبل بداية المظاهرات بالعاصمة.

وعلقت الرابطة الجزائرية للدفاع عن حقوق الإنسان (مستقلة) على بيان الشرطة بالمطالبة ب”الإفراج الفوري عن الموقوفين وان يتم احترام حق التظاهر سلميا” كما نشرت على صفحتها بموقع “فيسبوك”.
