Economic news:
US: The United States on Friday blocked Venezuela from proceeding with its dispute over Washington’s sanctions at the World Trade Organization, seizing on the issue to underscore its rejection of Nicolas Maduro as the country’s legitimate president.
Venezuela had planned to request the formation of a WTO panel to rule on whether sanctions the United States imposed in 2018 and 2019 breached global trading rules.
The United States asked for the request to be removed, which Venezuela refused to do, prompting the trade body to suspend a meeting about this and other trade matters at the start, a Geneva-based trade official said.
U.S. Trade Representative spokesman Adam Hodge said the panel request was illegitimate because the Maduro administration did not speak on behalf of the Venezuelan people.
“The United States will reject any effort by Maduro to misuse the WTO to attack U.S. sanctions aimed at restoring human rights and democracy to Venezuela,” he said in a statement.
Eurozone: The European Central Bank must remain a key stabilizer of the euro zone economy as the bloc is at risk of suffering longer-term damage from its pandemic-induced double-dip recession, ECB chief economist Philip Lane said on Saturday.
A sustained period of low activity reduces labour productivity, weakens corporate balance sheets and saps confidence, leading to a potential downward spiral, Lane said in a speech to the Spring workshop of The European House – Ambrosetti.
“There is a clear risk of self-fulfilling adverse dynamics taking hold, through which uncertain economic prospects induce households, firms and governments to hold back on expenditure plans, leading to a decline in overall demand that validates the loss in confidence about the future,” he said.
Hoping to prop up the economy until it is ready to reopen, the ECB has pushed borrowing costs to record lows through copious asset purchases and loans to banks at rates as low as minus 1%.

Economic news:
US: The U.S. Customs has found forced labour practices in Top Glove Corp Bhd’s production of disposable gloves and directed its ports to seize goods from the manufacturer, it said on Monday.
In a statement overnight, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said it has sufficient information to determine labour abuses at the world’s largest medical glove maker.
CBP issued an order in July last year that barred imports from two of Top Glove’s subsidiaries on suspicion of labour abuses.
The ban now extends “to all disposable gloves originating in Top Glove factories in Malaysia,” it told Reuters.
Top Glove shares fell nearly 5% in early morning trade.
Top Glove told Reuters its U.S. counsels are liaising with representatives from the CBP to obtain more clarity and information on the matter.
Eurozone: The European Central Bank must be cautious when it shifts away from its emergency stimulus even if the economy rebounds from the pandemic as predicted, according to outgoing policy maker Vitas Vasiliauskas.
The Governing Council member and head of Lithuania’s central bank, who steps down from those roles next month, said in an interview that the ECB should draw on its earlier experiences of tightening too soon. That means switching back to more-standard monetary tools only gradually.
Even after inflation is back to its pre-pandemic trajectory, policy makers will need to keep quantitative easing in place for “quite a while,” he predicted.
“I don’t think we can allow ourselves to make very sharp changes to our monetary policy, especially having in mind our historic experience,” Vasiliauskas said on Monday. “It would be better to live a little bit longer in the transitional situation.”
ECB officials have been forced to backtrack in the past decade after capping or withdrawing monetary support too soon. They halted bond purchases at the end of 2018 — only to restart buying within a year as the economy deteriorated — and were forced to reverse two interest-rate increases in 2011.

Economic news:
US: U.S. employers likely stepped up hiring in March amid increased vaccinations and more pandemic relief money from the government, which would cement expectations for a boom that could push this year’s economic growth to the strongest since 1984.
The Labour Department’s closely watched employment report on Friday is also expected to show people, mostly women, wading back into the labour market, drawn by those brightening economic prospects. But the labour market is hardly out of the woods yet, with the job’s deficit still huge and long-term unemployment becoming entrenched.
“The economy is on fire, fuelled by vaccines and government stimulus,” said Sung Won Sohn, a finance and economics professor at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. “All the stars are lined up to surprise us on the upside.”
Nonfarm payrolls likely surged by 647,000 jobs last month after increasing by 379,000 in February, according to a Reuters survey of economists. That would be the biggest gain since October. Estimates ranged from as low as 115,000 to as high as 1.1 million jobs.
Friday’s report marks a painful anniversary for the labour market. The March 2020 employment report was the first to reflect the mandatory closures of non-essential businesses such as restaurants, bars and gyms to slow the onset of the just-emerging COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly 1.7 million jobs were lost that month, and another 20.7 million would vanish the next.
Eurozone: Europe should match the ambition shown by the United States with its huge new economic stimulus, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Thursday.
The new administration of U.S. President Joe Biden is already making payments to households under a new $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package and plans to plough $2.3 trillion into infrastructure investments to fire up the world’s biggest economy.
“Whatever we may think about it, the American stimulus plan shows ambition, and the return of U.S. ambition is a good thing,” Le Maire said in a speech at the Geneva Graduate Institute.
“The best response to U.S. ambition isn’t to fight it. It is to match it. Europe needs to challenge itself like America does,” he added.
While European countries’ support for their economies last year was on par with that seen in the United States, the new U.S. stimulus dwarves the European Union’s 750 billion euro ($881 billion) economic recovery plan.
Though the 27-nation bloc agreed the landmark stimulus fund last summer, EU governments are still submitting detailed plans on how they aim to spend money from the fund, which many still need to ratify.
Important Data: US Nonfarm Payrolls (Mar) today at 8:30 this time estimated 647K, previously which was 379K. US Unemployment Rate (Mar) today at 8:30 this time estimated 6.0%, previously which was 6.2%. US Government Payrolls (Mar) today at 8:30 previously which was -86K. US Average Hourly Earnings (YoY) (YoY) (Mar) today at 8:30 this time estimated 4.5%, previously which was 5.3%.

Economic news:
US: U.S. President Joe Biden would be willing to push through his $2 trillion infrastructure plan without the support of Republican lawmakers if he cannot reach a bipartisan deal, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said on Sunday.
Granholm said Biden would prefer that his plan have Republican backing but, if that does not work, he would likely support using a procedural strategy called reconciliation to allow Democrats to pass it in the Senate.
“As he has said, he was sent to the presidency to do a job for America. And if the vast majority of Americans, Democrats and Republicans, across the country support spending on our country and not allowing us to lose the race globally, then he’s going to do that,” Granholm said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Most Americans currently support the Democratic president’s plan, said Granholm, one of several senior Biden administration officials who promoted the proposal on television news shows on Sunday.
Since taking office in January, the Democratic president has repeatedly said he wants to work with Republicans.
Eurozone: Britain’s organised crime agency is reviewing a report by a group of London-based lawyers which accuses Lebanon’s central bank governor Riad Salameh and associates of money laundering and corrupt practices, four sources familiar with the matter said.
The 76-page report, seen by Reuters, outlines what it says are assets, companies and investment vehicles in Britain worth hundreds of millions of pounds which it alleges Salameh, members of his family and his associates used over years to divert funds out of Lebanon.
Salameh, who has led Lebanon’s central bank since 1993, told Reuters he had read a copy of the report and described it as part of a smear campaign. “They are false allegations,” he said.
London-based legal practice Guernica37 submitted the report to British police late last year, two of the sources said. They said it was then referred to Britain’s National Crime Agency (NCA). The report was prepared on behalf a group from Lebanese civil society in the diaspora.
“We can confirm we have received that report, but we are not in a position to comment further,” a spokesman for the NCA said, declining to say whether an investigation had been launched. Two of the sources said NCA’s financial investigation unit was carrying out a scoping exercise, a form of preliminary investigation, to determine whether there were sufficient grounds to start a formal investigation.

Economic news:
US: Top Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee on Monday proposed major shifts in former President Donald Trump’s 2017 tax reforms to eliminate what they say are incentives for companies to move operations overseas and shift profits to tax haven countries.
The plan proposed by Democratic senators Ron Wyden, Sherrod Brown and Mark Warner parallels some of the corporate tax hike proposals announced last week by President Joe Biden to finance $2 trillion in U.S. infrastructure investment.
The senators are targeting provisions in the landmark 2017 Tax and Jobs Act that govern how companies’ foreign income is taxed, the Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income system, the Foreign-Derived Intangible Income tax and the Base-Erosion and Anti-abuse Tax.
The systems were aimed at returning companies’ deferred offshore income to the United States at lower tax rates, where those profits could be invested in American jobs. But in practice, the Democrats said, they created new incentives for companies to invest more overseas to take advantage of new exemptions.
Eurozone: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday a planned reopening of the economy would take place next week, with the opening of all shops, gyms, hairdressers and outdoor hospitality areas in England.
With the vaccine programme rolling out rapidly across the UK and infection numbers falling, Johnson said England would proceed to Stage 2 of his roadmap out of lockdown from April 12. Johnson said he would go to the pub himself for a pint.
People should continue to work from home when they could and minimise domestic travel, the government said. It also confirmed that the government was looking at a COVID-status certification system, or vaccine passport, to help reopen larger events.

Economic news:
US: Top White House economist Cecilia Rouse on Tuesday defended President Joe Biden’s plan to spend $400 billion on the “care economy” as a legitimate infrastructure investment and key part of his drive to address persistent economic inequities.
Republicans have blasted Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure package as riddled with liberal spending priorities, and want to strip out funding for home- and community-based jobs taking care of kids and seniors.
Rouse told an online event that was faulty thinking.
“So many people said, ‘Oh, the $400 billion that are being proposed for the home care workers or the home care sector, that’s not really infrastructure,'” she said. “Well I beg to differ. I can’t go to work, if I don’t have someone who’s taking care of my parents or my children.”
Biden’s infrastructure plan, his second major legislative initiative, appears unlikely to draw more bipartisan support than his first, a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package that passed with only Democratic support last month.
The infrastructure package includes $25 billion to upgrade child-care facilities and increase the number of sites in areas with few child-care options, and the Biden administration is working on another package with more funding to be unveiled in coming weeks.
Eurozone: Top economic policymakers from the Group of Seven (G7) industrialised countries talked on Tuesday about how they will reform their economies to achieve their net zero emissions targets, this year’s chair, Britain, said.
“Finance ministers and central bank governors discussed the key roles of their ministries and central banks in the transition to net zero, and how climate policies complement and amplify the role of the private sector in financing climate action,” Britain’s finance ministry said in a statement.
British finance minister Rishi Sunak told attendees they needed to step up their plans to achieve the G7’s goal of creating $100 billion of climate finance, the finance ministry said.
Sunak will on Wednesday call on the Group of Twenty major economies to focus their efforts to tackle climate change and help the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to make climate change key to its activities, the finance ministry said.
On Thursday he will discuss more support for vulnerable countries and a new allocation of the IMF’s financial reserves, an internal currency known as special drawing rights (SDRs).

Economic news:
US: Federal Reserve officials remain wary about the ongoing risks of the coronavirus pandemic and are committed to bolstering the economy until its recovery is more secure, minutes of the U.S. central bank’s latest policy meeting showed on Wednesday.
With their own forecasts projecting the strongest run of U.S. economic growth in nearly 40 years, “participants agreed that the economy remained far from the (Fed’s) longer-run goals and that the path ahead remained highly uncertain,” the minutes from the March 16-17 meeting said.
“Participants noted that it would likely be some time,” before conditions improved enough for the central bank to consider reducing its current level of support.
Though several policymakers at the meeting indicated they thought interest rates might need to increase sooner than anticipated by the bulk of their colleagues, and perhaps as soon as next year, there was little sense of urgency around that issue in the minutes.
Eurozone: The European Central Bank sped up the pace of its emergency bond-buying programme by 22.7% in March despite a slowdown in the runup to Easter, with Germany the biggest beneficiary of its stimulus, data showed on Tuesday.
The ECB bought 73.5 billion euros worth of bonds under its Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme (PEPP) last month after pledging to raise buying volumes and cap a rise in borrowing costs that threatened to derail the euro zone’s recovery from a pandemic-induced recession.
However, data for the five days to April 2 showed net PEPP purchases were nearly halved compared with the previous week, at just 10.6 billion euros – likely due to lower market activity in the runup to Easter.
German government bonds took the lion’s share of the ECB’s largesse in February and March at 44.8 billion euros, combined data for PEPP and the ECB’s regular Public Sector Purchase Programme showed.
This was more than twice the net supply of German sovereign paper over those months at 21 billion euros, according to UniCredit estimates, and helped bring the country back to its theoretical quota in the programmes.

Economic news:
US: The U.S. Federal Reserve plans to keep its super-easy policy in place even as data shows the economy kicking into higher gear, with policymakers predicting on Thursday that an expected increase in prices this year will fade on its own, and warning about the recent uptick in COVID-19 infections.
“Cases are moving back up here, so I would just urge that people do get vaccinated and continue socially distancing,” Fed Chair Jerome Powell, who has had his shots, said at an economic forum during virtual International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings. “We don’t want to get another outbreak; even if it might have less economic damage and kill fewer people, it’ll slow down the recovery.”
Speaking at a separate event, St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank President James Bullard said the Fed should not even discuss changes in monetary policy until it is clear the pandemic is over, tying future Fed discussions tightly to the success of the vaccination effort.
The Fed has said it will keep buying $120 billion in bonds a month until it sees “substantial further progress” toward meeting the central bank’s employment and inflation goals.
Eurozone: European Central Bank policymakers at their meeting last month debated a smaller increase in bond purchases and agreed to front-load the buying this quarter on condition it could be cut later if conditions allow, the accounts of their meeting showed on Thursday.
Worried that rising yields would derail an eventual recovery, policymakers in March decided to “significantly” increase bond purchases and undo some of the rise in borrowing costs, which was deemed a reflection of a global repricing rather than improved economic prospects.
Monthly bond buys under the ECB’s 1.85 trillion-euro Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme jumped by over a fifth last month, enough to stabilize nominal bond yields and push inflation-adjusted yields back to their early-year lows.
However, some policymakers argued that a smaller increase in bond purchases would better reflect a more balanced risk assessment and expectations for faster growth.
“All members joined a broad consensus around the proposal put forward by (chief economist Philip) Lane, on the understanding that the total PEPP envelope was not being called into question in the current conditions and that the pace of purchases could be reduced in the future,” the account of the March 10-11 meeting showed.
Important Data: US PPI (MoM) (Mar) today at 8:30 this time estimated 0.5%, previously which was 0.5%.

Economic news

The U.S. economy could see a significant rebound this year thanks to accommodative monetary and fiscal policy, but the labourmarket still has much room for improvement, Boston Federal Reserve Bank President Eric Rosengren said on Monday.
“With labour-markets lack still significant, and inflation still below the Federal Reserve’s 2 per cent target, my perspective is that the current highly accommodative stance of monetary policy is appropriate,” Rosengren said during a virtual discussion with business leaders.
Coronavirus vaccines’ ability to successfully prevent the spread of new variants of the virus would also be important, he said. “Assuming virus variants do not become especially problematic, we should see an unusually strong post-recession recovery,” he said.
Under a replacement framework adopted last year, Fed officials are going to be patient and leave rates near zero until inflation materializes – not raising rates in anticipation of upper inflation when the unemployment rate is low, Rosengren said.
Policymakers are trying to avoid the sluggish recovery that took place after the global financial crisis, and it is possible that the unemployment rate could drop to pre-pandemic levels of about 4% within the next two years, Rosengren said. Some employers will need to juice up their benefits packages or increase pay to attract new workers as business picks up, he said.
EUROZONE:
Economic news

Britain’s economy will be back to its pre-COVID-19 level around the middle of next year, according to economists in a Reuters poll who said unemployment would peak at 6.2% as 2021 draws to a close and the pandemic job support scheme ends.
The UK has suffered the highest coronavirus-related death toll in Europe. But a swift vaccine rollout and plummeting infections haveallowed the government to begin easing restrictions and on Monday non-essential retail and outside hospitality reopened.
Last year the economy shrank by the most in more than three centuries, but the April 7-12 poll of around 70 economists said it would expand 5.0% this year and 5.5% in 2022. In a March poll, those forecasts were 4.6% and 5.7%, respectively.
With much of the country’s dominant service industry closed, and citizens encouraged to stay at home, the poll suggested the economy contracted 2.3% last quarter. Now that lockdowns are being loosened, it was expected to grow 3.5% this quarter and 3.0% next.
“There are mounting signs that the effects on the economy from the third COVID-19 lockdown have started to thaw,” said Paul Dales at Capital Economics.
“We are sticking to our relatively optimistic view that the reopening of the economy and the vaccine programme will allow GDP to regain its pre-pandemic level early next year.”
But asked when the British economy would be back to its pre-pandemic size the majority of respondents to an additional question thought it would take a bit longer, with 10 expecting it to be a quarter or two later.
Finance Minister Rishi Sunak said last month he expected the economy would return to its pre-pandemic size in mid-2022. Six respondents in the poll said it would take longer and five said it would be sooner.

The U.S. economy still has a long way to go to fully recover from the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, which hit minorities and people with lower levels of education hardest, but the outlook is improving, Cleveland Federal Reserve Bank President Loretta Mester said on Thursday.
“While the economy is still far from our policy goals of maximum employment and price stability, progress is being made and the economic outlook is brightening,” Mester said during a virtual event with students from Swarthmore College.
On the inflation front, the Fed official said price readings could be high in the near-term as companies struggle with supply chain disruptions and prices rebound from lows reached early in the pandemic, but price growth is likely to slow as time passes and those challenges are resolved.
“I’m not too concerned about inflation moving too high at this point,” Mester said.
The U.S. economy could see strong growth in the second half of the year and labor market conditions should continue to improve as long as there is not a surge in infections of virus strains that are resistant to vaccines, Mester told reporters after the event.
The policymaker expects the U.S. economy to grow by 6% or more this year and the unemployment rate to drop to 4.5% or lower by year-end.
EUROZONE:-

The European Parliament’s committees on relations with Britain on Thursday voted overwhelmingly in favour of the post-Brexit trade and cooperation agreement, clearing the path to its final ratification.
They had suspended voting in March in protest over British changes to trading arrangements in Northern Ireland, which Brussels says breach the terms of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.
The United Kingdom left the European Union on Jan. 31 after years of tortuous negotiations over their future relations but many details remain unclear, leading to acrimony.
The EU’s foreign affairs and trade committees backed the trade and cooperation agreement struck in December by 108 votes to one, with four abstentions, the parliament said in a statement.
The full chamber must still give its approval and, while it is clear the deal would receive majority backing, it is not certain that lawmakers will vote.
Parliament faces an end-April deadline but has said it wants to see Britain move on implementing the Northern Ireland protocol.
If there is no vote this month and provisional application of the agreement is not extended, then the trade deal would cease to apply, leaving Britain and the European Union to trade on World Trade Organization terms with tariffs and quotas.
Christophe Hansen, a lead lawmaker on post-Brexit ties, said Britain would not agree to another extension, meaning the end of April was a potential cliff edge. But he supported the agreement on Thursday.
“Plunging our companies into renewed uncertainty would be irresponsible and definitely in nobody’s interest,” he said.
Parliamentary leaders compromised this week by allowing the committee vote and could still decide to put the trade deal before the full chamber in its April 26-29 session.
The Brexit impact on Northern Ireland has helped fuel the worst violence in the province for years, but EU-UK rhetoric has dialled down and technical experts from both sides have sought to overcome differences.
British negotiator David Frost will meet European Commission vice president Maros Sefcovic on Thursday evening. The Commission said the meeting was designed as a stock-taking exercise and to provide a steer for future talks.

Technical Analysis

Fewer than 200,000 businesses in the United States may have failed during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, a lighter toll than initially feared and one that may have had relatively little impact on unemployment, according to Federal Reserve research.
The figure contrasts with the early forecasts that the pandemic would leave America’s “Main Street” desolate as well as with polls that continue to show large percentages of U.S. small business owners are worried about their survival.
Perhaps 600,000 businesses, most of them small firms, fail in any given year, and U.S. central bank researchers estimated that from March 2020 through February of this year the figure has been perhaps a quarter to a third higher.
That included 100,000 “excess” failures among firms engaged in close-contact services such as barber shops and nail salons, a sector described by the Fed research group as the sector hardest hit by the economic fallout from the pandemic.
While potentially devastating for the owners and employees of those firms, “relative to popular discussion … our results may represent an optimistic update to views about pandemic-related business failure,” the authors wrote.
Offsetting the hit to those services-oriented businesses, they noted, carry-out restaurants, grocery stores and outdoor recreation companies seemed to suffer fewer failures than usual, with the net result being a smaller-than-anticipated blow to the overall economy.
“Many industries have likely seen lower-than-usual exit rates, and exiting businesses do not appear to represent a large share of U.S. employment,” the researchers wrote.
The study was the latest to sound a positive note on an economic recovery that has proceeded faster than expected, with top Fed officials confident that much of the potential permanent damage had been avoided. Earlier research had anticipated widespread business failures due to the pandemic, with 400,000 or more small firms going dark.
Census and other surveys continue to reflect stress among some firms that continue to operate, and the Fed researchers acknowledged that more failures could occur if, for example, banks, landlords and creditors become less flexible with their business tenants as conditions return to normal.
Nor does the study account for the millions of still-lost jobs at surviving firms that cut staff or reduced operations, or for the disproportionate losses felt among racial or ethnic groups over-represented in the most devastated industries.
But it does start to put some scope around one of the potential economic scars from the pandemic, and suggests that small businesses appear to have been both more resilient than anticipated, and were propped up effectively by loans from the Paycheck Protection Program and other federal aid.

Technical Analysis

Euro zone politicians, courts and policy hawks will pose a stiff challenge this year to the ECB’s resolve to pin down the bloc’s borrowing costs, precisely at a time when higher U.S. Treasury yields are tempting investors away from European markets.
The European Central Bank has held sovereign debt yields low through bond purchases, and recently increased buying in its 1.85 trillion-euro ($2.22 trillion) emergency stimulus scheme, known as PEPP.
And it is no longer battling alone to support the euro economy, as the pandemic induced governments to spend more and to create an 800 billion-euro Recovery Fund, seeded by joint European Union borrowing.
However, an emergency appeal at Germany’s top court has halted the fund’s ratification. The court should decide in the coming weeks on the suit which was brought by five plaintiffs, including the former leader of the far-right Alternative for Germany party.
Given how far Europe’s recovery lags the United States, delaying the fund could mean “economic disaster”, ECB board member Isabel Schnabel has warned.
It is most concerning for poorer southern European countries, which stand to benefit the most from disbursements. Their borrowing costs fell last year as the Recovery Fund deal was seen reducing risks for their economies, but yields have started to edge up on concerns that support for these economies may not come soon enough.
Italy alone could receive a total 250 billion euros from the fund, Credit Suisse estimates.
“(The ECB) is doing enough, but the game is not over,” said Guy Miller, chief market strategist at Zurich Insurance Group . “They have to remain vigilant, and they will have to make sure to continue to fight.”

Technical Analysis

Two Biden administration agencies have struck a deal to offer 22,000 extra seasonal guestworker visas to employers in the coming months, Bloomberg Law reported on Monday.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Labor Secretary Marty Walsh agreed late last week to lift the cap on H-2B visas, the report
The extra visas for seasonal non-agricultural labor, called the H-2B visas, are in addition to the annual allotment of 66,000 H-2B visas.
Earlier in April, President Joe Biden allowed a proclamation from his Republican predecessor that had blocked many temporary foreign workers from coming into the United States to expire.
The Democratic president has rolled back some of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies since taking office on Jan. 20, including last month revoking a proclamation that had blocked many immigrant visa applicants from entering the United States.

Technical Analysis

The UK government will look into the national security implications of U.S. group Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA)’s purchase of British chip designer ARM Holdings (LON:ARM), it said on Monday, raising a question mark over the $40 billion deal.
Digital minister Oliver Dowden said he had issued a so-called intervention notice over the sale of ARM by Japan’s SoftBank to Nvidia.
Nvidia said it does not believe the deal poses any material national security issues.
“We will continue to work closely with the British authorities, as we have done since the announcement of this deal,” said Nvidia, the biggest U.S. chip company by market capitalisation.
ARM is a major player in global semiconductors, a sector fundamental to technologies from artificial intelligence and quantum computing to 5G telecoms networks. Its designs power nearly every smartphone and millions of other devices.
Semiconductors also underpin critical infrastructure in Britain and are in technology related to defence and national security matters, the government said, adding that officials from the security community had informed the decision to intervene.
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) will assess the competition, jurisdiction and national security impact of the deal, with a report due by July 30, the government sa
id.
Dowden will then decide whether to clear the deal, either with or without undertakings from the companies involved, or refer it for a longer, in-depth investigation.
