Iran sanctions end: Cheaper oil, more trade opportunities for India
“We can sign commercial deals with Iran since payment is no longer an issue”.The lifting of the sanctions on Iran will benefit India with lower oil prices and more opportunities for trade, according to experts. It should also bring the proposed India-Iran gas pipeline closer to reality.
“There will be a further softening of global crude prices. Iran will gradually ramp up production by 0.5 million barrels per day over the next six months. This will add to the overall supply glut,” K. Ravichandran, senior vice-president and co-head, corporate sector rating at ICRA told The Hindu.
The lifting of sanctions also removes an important hurdle — U.S. pressure to hold off on the deal — in the proposed India-Iran gas pipeline, said Rajiv Kumar, senior fellow at the Centre for Policy Research. He said that an added benefit would be for construction companies in India.
“It will be much easier to export to Iran. We have been importing oil from them despite the sanctions through a rupee payment agreement. We can also start taking up construction projects there. Our project companies can go back to doing that. Iran will also be looking for our technical skills,” Mr. Kumar said.
The sanctions on Iran were lifted on Saturday following the European Union and the International Atomic Energy Agency deeming that Iran has completed the necessary steps in a deal to restrict its nuclear programme.
Apart from Iranian oil, India will also benefit from the removal of restrictions on payments to Iranian companies that the sanctions had imposed. “With the removal of sanctions, we won’t have difficulties in reaching our payment dues. As a result, we can go ahead and sign commercial deals with Iran since payment is no longer an issue. The lifting of sanctions means we can invest in Iran, which we could not do earlier,” PR Kumaraswamy, Professor on the Middle East at Jawaharlal Nehru University said.
India reportedly owes Iran $6.5 billion for crude oil purchases, the payment of which has so far been held up due to the sanctions.
One of the major construction projects in Iran that India has taken an interest in is the development of the Chabahar Port. Now Indian companies will be able to get contracts for this project.
“One area of interest is construction, and there the Chabahar Port becomes important. But even then, that port will be more important for Iran than for India. India’s total trade with all these (Central Asian) countries is less than $1billion. The real benefit will be that we were able to build a port in a foreign country in the face of international competition,” Prof. Kumaraswamy said, adding that this would be the first time India would be attempting this.

IMF Chief Calls on Asian States to Implement Supportive Monetary Policy
Lagarde, who was reappointed last month for a second five-year term, called Asia the "world's most dynamic region", noting it accounts for 40 percent of the world economy and will deliver almost two-thirds of global growth over the next four years.
"So, India stands at a crucial moment in its history - with an unprecedented opportunity for transformation". Mr. Modi said India has a special place in Asia and has shown that a large diverse country can be managed in a way that can promote economic growth and maintain social stability. Addressing MOF-IMF Conference on "Advancing Asia: Investing for the Future", Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that reform of global institutions has to be an on-going process, adding, it must reflect changes in the global economy, and the rising share of emerging economies.
The signing of this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) represents a key step toward a fully integrated capacity development center in New Delhi, and demonstrates the shared commitment between the International Monetary Fund and its membership in using technical assistance and training as vehicles for economic stability and inclusive growth.
"Global economy is actually facing significant challenges - volatile markets and capital flows, significant economic transitions, financial tightening in many economies, the large drop in commodity prices, including oil, and escalated geopolitical conflicts".
Christine Lagarde, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund (IMF) will make the Opening Remarks on the occasion. The funding will come from contributions by regional member countries and development partners. The policy specifics, Lagarde said, would "vary across countries and according to circumstances".
"I am not suggesting that we cover each other with colour or spray water as is customary (we will leave that to children)".
'Increased interconnectedness means that Asia now affects the world more than ever before, ' she said. Many countries in the continent pulled off economic "miracles", and several became world powerhouses, she said.
For the past 25 years - the Asian crisis notwithstanding - the region's economy has grown by around 6 per cent a year. "We are a ray of hope for global economic recovery", he said. Our rapid economic growth is also very distinct in Asia. "An initiative of Prime Minister Modi's government, for example, is to improve women's welfare services under Beti-Bachao, Beti-Padhao", the IMF MD said.

Walkingstick: Iran Links Up With 264 International Banks
Wednesday, March 16, 2016 - 02:00
Iran’s banking system has established relations with 264 foreign banks since the lifting of the sanctions on January 16, said the governor of Central Bank of Iran late Monday.
“During this period, 1,202 letters of credit have been issued for Iranian individuals and entities, which indicates the expansion of Iran’s banking relations,” ILNA quoted Valiollah Seif as saying.
According to the top banker, a big portion of the expansion took place from February 17-March 2.
“During the period, 244 banks started their corresponding relations with the country and 744 LCs were also issued during the period,” he said.
Seif pointed to recent claims that Iran is not connected to the SWIFT interbank messaging system and said banks are now sending their requests through the network without restrictions and we are working to improve it.
“We cannot revive the banking network overnight,” he said.
SWIFT reconnected a number of Iranian banks to its system, allowing them to resume cross-border transactions with foreign banks after the lifting of sanctions on Tehran.
Iran’s tie-up with the SWIFT system, four years after banks were cut off from the network, had become a political issue with some conservative parliamentary critics of President Hassan Rouhani complaining the reconnection was not occurring fast enough and the country’s nuclear deal was not delivering the expected economic benefits.
International sanctions, including banking restrictions, imposed against Iran ended in January under a deal with world powers in which Tehran agreed to curb its nuclear program.
But US measures, including a ban on dollar trading and a freeze on US banks engaging in trade, remain in place. This has left non-US banks and insurers wary of processing transactions with Iran, fearing they may still fall foul of the existing measures and a lack of clarity on what they are able to do.
Seif called on banks’ CEOs to publicize their banks’ performance regarding SWIFT reconnection, telling them to “let people know we are moving forward”.
“The banking system is the key contributor to the country’s economy. Therefore, any development should be authentically publicized,” he added.
