As funding pledges pour in, has COP27 achieved its implementation goal? https://aisa-net.com/as-funding-pledges-pour-in-has-cop27-achieved-its-implementation-goal/ Mon, 21 Nov 2022 15:07:30 +0000 https://aisa-net.com/as-funding-pledges-pour-in-has-cop27-achieved-its-implementation-goal/

The twenty-seventh UN Conference of the Parties in the sunny resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, has been dubbed an “implementation COP”. It was the climate summit that would finally fulfill previous financial pledges to invest in renewable energy, build infrastructure to withstand extreme weather events, respond to climate disasters and fund other aspects of the climate action. The Egyptian presidency of the summit also presented the meeting as an “African COP”, to emphasize that the implementation is more relevant for Africa (and other parts of the South, such as Pakistan) which are extremely vulnerable to global warming. climate, although they contribute little to global warming. greenhouse gases causing climate change. But at the conclusion of the meeting, some positive points emerged, although much remains to be done to achieve the implementation goals.

From billions to millions of public finances?

In the weeks leading up to the summit, the growing gap between the financial resources needed to address the climate crisis in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and the actual delivery was evident. To limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, estimates indicate that annual investments in clean energy must triple by 2030, exceeding $4 trillion, while adaptation in developing countries will cost up to at $340 billion a year. Yet Annex II countries legally bound to provide climate finance under the UN climate convention have made smaller contributions to the internationally agreed goal of $100 billion a year. In 2020, the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom paid well below their internationally agreed targets than their historical emissions shares, while Germany, France, Japan and the Netherlands each gave billions of dollars more than their obligations.

A larger share of pledged public funding is flowing in at COP27, but it remains well below what is expected. President Joe Biden has announced that the United States will aim to provide $11 billion per year by 2024 and $150 million to support adaptation initiatives, including in Africa. The latter will likely encompass the President’s emergency plan for adaptation and resilience in Africa, consisting of early warning systems and includes $24 million to help farmers access insurance, $10 million to supporting the launch of the Cairo Center for Learning and Excellence in Adaptation and Resilience, and $25 million for the African Union’s African Adaptation Initiative, among others. Across the Atlantic, Germany is leading a G7 initiative that will support disaster risk management in vulnerable countries. Contributions to this fund to date include €170 million from Germany, €20 million from France, €10 million from Ireland and €7 million from Canada.

This lack of forthcoming funding – from Annex II countries, whether due to lethargy or competing national priorities – does not bode well for other climate funds. Loss and damage financing, which finally made it onto the agenda of this year’s COP after years of LMIC advocacy, is intended to provide compensation for climate disasters caused by greenhouse gas emissions. greenhouses in rich countries. It is an addition, not a substitute, to the $100 billion agreed at COP15 in Copenhagen in 2009. How to quantify loss and damage, where to house the funds, how to disburse them and who pays this compensation (should China and India count, even if they are large emitters but not Annex II countries?) are all serious questions that are the subject of debate.

How to unlock trillions of private capital?

On the private sector front, the story is slightly more optimistic with the promise of trillions of dollars in the capital markets waiting to be unlocked with the right mechanisms. But even promising developments have encountered obstacles. For example, the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero pledged at COP26 to raise over $130 trillion in assets from investment banks, hedge funds, private equity firms and others in for climate action. But it now faces an uncertain future after the alliance dropped its link to the UN-backed Race to Zero, which it had previously touted as a mark of its rigorous standards. Moreover, the global energy crisis exacerbated by the war in Ukraine has reinforced the reluctance of several financiers to immediately halt investments in fossil fuels, and thus meet the coalition’s net zero requirement.

More promising are developments around carbon trading, such as the launch of the African Carbon Markets Initiative. Created to increase the continent’s participation in voluntary carbon markets, the initiative aims to generate 300 million carbon credits per year on the continent by 2030, unlock $6 billion in revenue and support the creation of 30 million jobs. Under the leadership of its newly elected president, Brazil has joined the Democratic Republic of Congo and Indonesia – which collectively are home to more than half of the world’s remaining primary rainforests – to form a rainforest protection alliance to monetize and protect these carbon sinks. US climate envoy John Kerry also announced several initiatives supporting carbon trading, with members of Congress promising more action on this front. Global carbon markets, worth $850 billion, could grow even faster.

Are side deals becoming the new norm?

The most notable financial packages have been prepared outside of COP27 and targeted at specific countries, a trend that is gaining traction around the world. On Tuesday, Indonesia announced a $20 billion Just Energy Transition Plan (JETP) to support its coal phase-out by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050. But the plan was actually unveiled thousands of miles from Sharm in Bali, Indonesia. , at the G20 summit. Like South Africa’s pioneering $8.5 billion JETP announced in Glasgow in 2021, Indonesia’s plan was negotiated with a number of Annex II countries co-led by states States and Japan, including Canada, Denmark, European Union, France, Germany, Italy, Norway and United Kingdom. An $11 billion JETP for Vietnam is expected to be announced at the ASEAN-EU summit in December. Egypt is also pushing for $500m from the US, Germany and the EU to fund its clean energy transition, and Biden has announced a plan to raise $2bn. of private investments for the development of solar energy in Angola.

These side agreements carry a certain promise of country ownership: they are based on clear objectives, co-designed with the country in question, based on the country’s plans and resource allocations, are limited in the time, are potentially easier to track than aid money, and could give the country more agency than the donor-recipient power dynamics of aid money. Yet if such agreements were to replace multilateral frameworks in the provision of climate finance, it could be a devastating setback for global climate action, not least because smaller, poorer and more vulnerable countries will not have the muscle geopolitics to negotiate their own JETPs.

Many LMICs excluded from these side deals could be drawn even further into China’s orbit. After all, China – which usually avoids loud announcements at COP summits – is still the biggest funder of energy projects in Africa. Chinese banks have provided nearly $50 billion in energy investment to the continent between 2000 and 2020. Many of these projects are negotiated and agreed to bilaterally, with individual countries or through the triennial Forum on China-Africa Cooperation. . With China already doing more on energy financing beyond the UN COP framework and Western countries inadvertently using a similar playbook of negotiating side deals with middle-income countries, this development could constitute a serious setback for multilateralism.

By advancing an implementation target for COP27, the Egyptian presidency succeeded in facilitating a more focused discussion on climate finance. But the actual delivery of promises leaves much to be desired. In many cases, public funding was in the order of a few million dollars, instead of the expected billions and trillions needed to finance a low-carbon transition. Although policy and regulatory innovations could unlock trillions of dollars of private capital, the victories at COP27 were not ambitious enough to meet the scale of the challenge. Glacial progress in meeting funding targets is likely to cause more frustration around the world, leading to louder calls for climate reparations and potentially raising questions about the COP’s ability to deliver results, as powerful countries negotiate more and more parallel agreements. While the amounts and mechanisms for mobilizing climate finance will continue to be debated at UN summits, those most vulnerable to warming will continue to struggle with the delay to combat the effects of global warming.

Stuart Kirk: Putting my money where my mouth is https://aisa-net.com/stuart-kirk-putting-my-money-where-my-mouth-is/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 05:01:15 +0000 https://aisa-net.com/stuart-kirk-putting-my-money-where-my-mouth-is/

For over 25 years I have either managed money, advised portfolio managers or written investment research. Why aren’t you retired then, I hear someone shouting in the back. This is a good question to ask all financial “experts”. My answer, for what it’s worth, is: four kids, divorce, and always be first at the bar.

During my career, I have learned that giving advice suffers from two problems. First, it is often wrong. Trump as president? Will never happen. Buy emerging market stocks — oops. And second, the giver rarely suffers when he is wrong.

This new weekly column will do its best to minimize the number of bad calls. Better yet, why don’t we agree that sometimes we’ll be extremely late for a good idea, or so far ahead of the curve that we won’t be alive to celebrate our wins? I will never say the word “wrong” if you don’t.

As for not having a skin in the game, there will be no recommendations that I do not participate in – whether it is to buy, sell or buy tools for the game. ‘summer. We are in the same boat. And by leaving single-name stocks to the Reddit brigade — sticking only to sectors, indices, and major asset classes — we can’t be accused of market manipulation.

To make sure my money is where my pen is, you’ll be able to see my portfolio performance every week. Except for a small investment in a friend’s data business (Essentia Analytics), I have no other savings. Just as playing poker without money is for kids, investing without the joy and fear that comes with putting your own assets on the line is just a fantasy.

This is why so many model wallets turn off the lights. They are not real. Which is, as I experienced in 1999, a five percentage point underweight in News Corp as it rose and rose during the dotcom bubble. I was sure it would burst, but my doubts grew. What was I missing? Co-workers stop looking you in the eye. You are not sleeping. Barely eat. Eventually, my relative returns were so bad that I was forced to buy. Then it plummeted.

It wasn’t even my money. Customers were the losers. That’s why I consider writing a personal finance column such a responsibility. Some readers will be hit, others will experience unimaginable financial pressures. There’s no way I’d consider offering recommendations if I didn’t follow them myself.

Let’s start with a target. I want to double the amount of my pension within a decade, in real terms. That’s an inflation-adjusted return of just over 7% per year. Long-term stock returns are a bit below that, so it might not seem ambitious. But we are coming out of a decades-long bull market, valuations are still rich and the world is facing many crises. I think it’s a sensible aspiration – not too greedy, realistic and with room for improvement.

Now to open the book. My only investments are in two defined contribution pension schemes of about the same size, totaling £438,000. The biggest bet is a 27% exposure to UK equities, then cash at slightly less, followed by a non-UK global equity fund. Then it drops to 11% Pacific ex-Japan stocks and the same weighting in Japanese stocks. That’s it. No fixed income. No alternative. No gold.

Over the next few months, we will analyze these posts and any news related to them. What made me buy? Does the investment case still make sense? What’s better there? But in the fall reporting week, how about starting with that huge exposure to UK equities?

I had moved out of risk assets before the pandemic (a fluke) and when equity markets crashed in the first quarter of 2020, I wanted to rebuild my equity exposure. But what to buy first? I didn’t necessarily care where, only that the market had to be cheap enough to compensate for the still extreme uncertainty around Covid.

The US S&P 500 forward price-to-earnings ratio had fallen 20 to 14 times. But the British indexes, whose prices had fallen by a quarter, were nine times higher. Someday I’ll write about PE ratios and why they’re silly. But single-digit stupidity is often a buy signal.

So it turned out. My FTSE All Share ETF has grown by a third since then. And now? Unusually, the index is cheaper on an earnings basis today than when I bought it, despite the rally. One reason is that oil company stock prices have simply doubled since 2020, while their profits have skyrocketed. Similarly, banking and pharmaceutical stock prices followed dramatic rebounds in earnings.

The low multiple also reflects fears that profitability could plummet next year – by as much as a third based on consensus estimates. It seems harsh. Moreover, earnings fell far more than that in 2020 and stocks rebounded. Also, don’t forget that the UK has a rump of amazing companies that no one has heard of. These are typically low-asset pharmaceutical and technology companies with valuable patents and impressive R&D pipelines. The median cash flow return on invested capital for UK indices is world class.

Since the majority of UK equity income comes from overseas, a weak pound is good for converted earnings. If the fall statement fails to convince the markets, then equities should be a good hedge. Indeed, there is a 60% inverse correlation between the quarterly returns of the FTSE All-Share Index since 1969 and the pound sterling against the dollar. Be warned, however, over the past five years the correlation has reversed.

I will maintain my weighting in UK equities. Experience tells me that the best time to own something is when it makes me terribly uncomfortable. I have that feeling now, for sure. Not you ?

Trigon Terminals Set to Nearly Double Terminal Capacity and Advance Green Diversification with New Federal Funding https://aisa-net.com/trigon-terminals-set-to-nearly-double-terminal-capacity-and-advance-green-diversification-with-new-federal-funding/ Wed, 16 Nov 2022 17:30:00 +0000 https://aisa-net.com/trigon-terminals-set-to-nearly-double-terminal-capacity-and-advance-green-diversification-with-new-federal-funding/

PRINCE RUPERT, BC, November 16, 2022 /CNW/ – Prince Rupert Trigon Pacific Terminals Limited (Trigon) is pleased to announce a $75 million award from the Federal National Trade Corridors Fund to enable major expansion and near doubling of export capacity, and also support Trigon’s well-advanced diversification strategy.

View towards Trigon Pacific Terminals future Beyond Carbon Berth 2 which will be used for green energy exports (CNW Group/Trigon Pacific Terminal Limited)

$75 million the federal government’s NCTF award to Trigon Pacific Terminals to double green power export capacity

“Thanks to this federal support, we will be able to accelerate the construction of the second wharf of our terminal – the $163 million B2BC or Project Berth 2 Beyond Carbon,” says Trigon President and CEO Rob Booker. “This project will make Trigon an even more valuable point of connection between Western Canadian exporters and Asia Pacific green energy market opportunities.”

“The B2BC project not only reinforces Trigon’s role as an engine of global commerce through the port of Prince Rupertbut it is also a positive and encouraging step forward towards a more sustainable future for all,” said Harold LeightonChief Advisor to Metlakatla and CEO of Metlakatla Development Corporation.

B2BC is a keystone of Trigon’s diversification strategy and will help accelerate the energy transformation in Canada and globally, says Booker. The second wharf was designed specifically to allow for an evolution over time towards the management of green energy exports, such as hydrogen-based fuels.

“Trigon’s B2BC project is a key part of the transformation journey – creating opportunities for our people, for Prince Rupert and for many other communities around the world who will benefit from the planned green energy exports,” said Garry ReeceMayor of Lax Kw’alaams.

Canada has the potential to be a major player in global hydrogen markets, but we must act quickly to capitalize on this incredible opportunity,” says Booker. . And this in turn will position us to take full advantage of emerging competitive advantages such as those of the Edmonton area Hydrogen HUB. »

The B2BC project will increase Trigon’s throughput capacity from 18.5 million tonnes to approximately 33.5 million tonnes per year. It will also reduce vessel wait times by optimizing the configuration and efficiency of existing berthing infrastructure and make better use of CN’s northern rail corridor serving the terminal, which will help improve the stability of the Supply Chain.

B2BC is fully licensed with construction to begin this fall and first “on-dock” product slated for 2026. Within five years, the project is expected to drive annual economic growth for $1.2 billionwith increasing socio-economic benefits in the longer term.

Trigon’s existing berth is purpose-built to handle today’s commodity mix, which primarily includes steelmaking, thermal coal and petroleum coke. The construction of B2BC will allow the continued operation of the terminal and the employment of its workforce, while providing a dedicated platform for alternative and clean energy exports.

The berth was designed for multiple products, including hydrogen in the form of ammonia, renewable fuels and biofuels, methanol/ethanol or additional liquefied petroleum gas, and potentially hydrogen itself. same. It will also create capacity at the existing berth for handling wood pellets and biomass, and potentially other bulk exports such as grain, potash and mineral concentrates (including copper, which is an integral part of electrification). The Trigon site includes sufficient space for the development of landside storage and handling areas that may be required.

The production, transport and use of hydrogen – for purposes such as power generation and fuel transport – is increasingly seen as a crucial part of decarbonization strategies. Canada has significant expertise and production potential relating to both blue hydrogen, using natural gas combined with carbon capture technologies; and green hydrogen, produced by electrolysis of water from renewable energy sources.

Over the past few months, Trigon has been involved in extensive exploration of hydrogen as ammonia export opportunities, including well-advanced discussions with potential Western Canadian producers and Asian buyers, as well as with other key supply chain partners. Preliminary commercial agreements are in place between Trigon and several potential commercial partners with an interest in the production and shipping of ammonia.

The National Trade Corridors Fund (NTCF) is a federal government initiative aimed at supporting the growth or generation of new overseas trade flows, as well as improving the fluidity and performance of from Canada Transportation system.

Trigon Pacific Terminals Limited is a multi-cargo bulk and liquefied gas export terminal at the port of Prince Rupert. With a skilled workforce and proven operational excellence, it is a key link between western Canadian commodity producers and their Asia Pacific clients. A private company – with interests held by the Coast Tsimshian First Nations of Lax Kw’alaams and Metlakatla – Trigon is committed to implementing transformational growth strategies aligned with global energy and climate imperatives.

Background to Trigon and the Hydrogen Export Opportunity

Trigon Pacific Terminals: a modern deep-water marine terminal located in Prince Rupert

  • Started operations in 1983 as a federal Crown corporation, privatized in 2019, with partial ownership by two Indigenous nations

  • Operates 24/7 with a highly skilled workforce (ILWU Local 523)

  • Workforce of approximately 130 people and significant socio-economic benefits

  • Formerly known as Ridley Terminals Inc., Trigon changed its name earlier in 2022 to better reflect its current ownership and diversified vision for growth

The hydrogen export opportunity: a global market valued at up to $11.7 trillion by 2050.

  • Hydrogen and hydrogen in the form of ammonia are widely considered to be among the most promising emission-free fuels with the potential to displace significant volumes of fossil fuels in various applications.

  • The International Energy Agency has identified hydrogen and hydrogen-based fuels as a key pillar of global efforts to achieve net zero carbon emissions; suggesting that in a net zero emissions scenario, it could represent 10% of total final energy consumption by 2050.

  • Canada, British Columbia and other provinces are among a growing number of jurisdictions around the world that have formal strategies related to hydrogen production, acquisition and deployment, and associated economic opportunities.

  • Japan was the first to adopt such a strategy and continues its aggressive efforts to secure large hydrogen supplies and advance their commercial application.

  • Earlier this year, for example, from Japan largest electricity producer (JERA) has launched an international procurement process whereby it intends to purchase 500,000 tons of ammonia per year from 2027 under a long-term contract.

Japan’s super-long yields fall to 2-week low on hopes of a slowdown in Fed rate hikes https://aisa-net.com/japans-super-long-yields-fall-to-2-week-low-on-hopes-of-a-slowdown-in-fed-rate-hikes/ Fri, 11 Nov 2022 07:07:03 +0000 https://aisa-net.com/japans-super-long-yields-fall-to-2-week-low-on-hopes-of-a-slowdown-in-fed-rate-hikes/

By Junko Fujita

TOKYO, Nov 11 (Reuters) – Yields on super-long Japanese government bonds fell to a two-week low on Friday as a sign of slowing inflation in the United States fueled hopes that the Federal Reserve could become less aggressive with interest rate hikes.

The 20-year JGB yield fell 7.5 basis points to 1.050%, its lowest since Nov. 1, in its biggest decline since Oct. 27.

The 30-year JGB yield plunged 9 basis points to 1.425%, its lowest since Nov. 1, and was last down 7.5 basis points at 1.440%.

“Upside pressure on global yields is receding,” said Shinji Ebihara, rates strategist at Barclays Securities Japan.

“Japanese yields are also expected to fall, with those on ultra-long-maturity notes leading the declines, as bonds with those maturities sold off heavily.”

The U.S. consumer price index rose less than expected by 7.7% year on year – the first time since February that the annual rise was less than 8%, and the smallest gain since January.

The slower pace of US inflation sent the 10-year Treasury yield to its lowest level in five weeks overnight.

The 40-year JGB yield fell 10 basis points to 1.650%, its lowest since Oct. 11.

The 10-year JGB yield fell 1 basis point to 0.235%, its lowest since Oct. 28.

The two-year JGB yield fell 0.5 basis points to -0.060%.

The five-year yield fell 2 basis points to 0.045%.

The benchmark JGB 10-year futures index rose 0.35 points to 149.46, with trading volume of 18,158 lots.

Astar Network Partners with NTT Docomo for Web3 Mass Adoption https://aisa-net.com/astar-network-partners-with-ntt-docomo-for-web3-mass-adoption/ Tue, 08 Nov 2022 23:25:27 +0000 https://aisa-net.com/astar-network-partners-with-ntt-docomo-for-web3-mass-adoption/

Blockchain innovation hub Astar Network is making strides in driving Web3 adoption around the world. In another milestone, the smart contract platform has onboarded Japan’s leading mobile operator, NTT Docomo, to collaborate on mass adoption of Web3 as well as its social implementation.

NTT Docomo will invest up to $4 billion in next-generation Internet technology as it seeks to take a leadership position using its mobile infrastructure over the next 5-6 years. Under the hood, Astar Network and NTT Docomo will foster initiatives that address technological, social and organizational challenges.

To accelerate Web3’s growth in their native Japan, the two companies will collaborate on three core areas to develop related infrastructure and services. Including:

  • Sustainable Development Goals: Creation of case studies to solve economic and environmental problems using web3.
  • Elimination of technology gaps and insecurity: Breaking down barriers to wider Web3 adoption through education.
  • Nurturing Web3 talent: Provide opportunities for engineers and business leaders to learn and gain hands-on web3 experience.

Additionally, a consortium will be created to give individuals and businesses the ability to use tokens for governance, a cornerstone of Web3 that supports democratic decision-making.

Astar Network CEO Sota Watanabe said, “Web3 and related technologies are on the verge of crossing the chasm and are on the verge of mass adoption. In this context, more robust boxes with an excellent user experience on an infrastructure accessible to all are essential. It’s about creating a society where more people can actually enjoy the benefits of Web3, not just engineers. By collaborating with NTT Docomo, a company that has created case studies that have been used by tens of millions of people, we will continue to deliver Web3.

Astar Network is a Japan-based bridge connecting layer-1 blockchains like Ethereum and Cosmos to the Polkadot ecosystem. It was recently voted the most popular blockchain in the country by the Japanese Blockchain Association.

Astar Network is the only Polkadot parachain that allows token holders to stake tokens on their favorite dApp, which means Web3 developers can earn basic income through staking rewards. Applications that run directly on nodes suffer from high latency and downtime because nodes are general purpose and not designed to be highly available. As such, Astar serves as a parachain that connects Polkadot to all major Tier 1 blockchains.

Earlier in September, Astar Network ran an ad in a national newspaper in Japan that set a new world record with 329 blue chip companies participating. He says his latest ad was a way to support the Japanese government and politicians who want to bring the country into the Web3 era. The network’s CEO, Sota Watanabe, is already helping the government as well as some of its major commercial players on the way forward in Web3.

Japan’s cross-border e-commerce booms thanks to cheaper yen https://aisa-net.com/japans-cross-border-e-commerce-booms-thanks-to-cheaper-yen/ Wed, 02 Nov 2022 23:00:15 +0000 https://aisa-net.com/japans-cross-border-e-commerce-booms-thanks-to-cheaper-yen/

Japan’s cross-border e-commerce is booming again, with many small businesses joining the market to take advantage of the sharp drop in the yen and advances in information technology, which makes it easier to communicate with buyers and manage paperwork. customs.

The United States and China are the biggest markets for Japanese products. Online sales to China reached 2.13 trillion yen ($14.37 billion) in 2021, up 10% from a year earlier, while sales to the United States increased by 26% to reach 1.22 billion yen, according to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The combined total equates to around 10% of Japan’s overall exports to the two countries for the same year, although online transactions under 200,000 yen are excluded from the statistics.

Overall sales are also growing. The yen sales index in the first six months of 2022 rose 80% from the same period in 2020 and was up 3.7 times from five years earlier, driven by orders from from Southeast Asia, Europe and North America, according to Beenos. , Japan’s leading cross-border e-commerce service provider. The Tokyo company helps more than 3,000 companies sell goods overseas.

Strong demand for Japanese diapers and other everyday items created a cross-border e-commerce boom around 2015. But this time sales are dominated by luxury items, including accessories and watches, according to Shota Naoi, Chairman of Beenos.

Thanks to the strong depreciation of the yen, Japanese products are now cheaper abroad. Despite inflation, average spending per customer on Japanese goods has only increased by 4% in two years since the first half of 2020 when converted to local currencies using effective exchange rates, according to Beenos, which has compiled data from its trading partners. According to Beenos, about 26% of American consumers who buy goods online from abroad have increased their spending on Japanese products.

The yen briefly dipped above 149 against the dollar on Oct. 17, hitting a new 32-year low.

Kurenai, a curtain manufacturer in Osaka, enjoys strong sales on Amazon in the United States. In particular, the company has noted strong demand for its high-end “one-way” curtains that allow users to see out but not the other way. “The depreciation of the yen helps us make profits,” Kurenai Chairman Yoshiro Tsuda said.

Bertrand, a Kyoto-based operator of an e-commerce site selling bento boxes, has seen monthly sales rise 20 to 30 percent year-to-date, from 12 million to 13 million yen. The company’s chairman, Thomas Bertrand, said the weak yen allowed him to pump more money into marketing and building inventory.

Advances in information technology have also lowered barriers to entry for small businesses in cross-border activities. Previously, if they wanted to sell overseas, they had to deal with the complexity of translating product descriptions, communicating with customers, and filing delivery and customs documents. But now they can use the services offered by major e-commerce operators and support agents.

A Japan External Trade Organization survey found that 48% of small businesses had started or were planning to do cross-border e-commerce, about 10 percentage points higher than among large businesses.

Productivity tends to improve when companies start exporting, according to the annual report on Japan’s economy and public finance published by the government’s Cabinet Office. “Cross-border e-commerce provides opportunities for small businesses to change business structure and management,” said Hideo Kumano, chief economist at the Dai-ichi Life Research Institute.

Japan lags behind other countries when it comes to e-commerce. An OECD survey found that only 22% of small businesses in Japan sell goods or services online, which is below the global average of 31%. This means there is still room for Japanese e-commerce to grow, although the cheaper yen may not last forever.

UPDATE 3-Panasonic will start building a battery factory in Kansas next month https://aisa-net.com/update-3-panasonic-will-start-building-a-battery-factory-in-kansas-next-month/ Mon, 31 Oct 2022 10:52:21 +0000 https://aisa-net.com/update-3-panasonic-will-start-building-a-battery-factory-in-kansas-next-month/

(Adds details from the press conference)

TOKYO, Oct 31 (Reuters) – Japan’s Panasonic Holdings Corp said on Monday it will start building a new battery plant in Kansas in November and aims to begin mass production by March 2025, targeting the market in rapid growth of electric vehicles in North America.

The conglomerate’s energy unit said in July it had chosen Kansas as the site of a new factory to supply batteries primarily to Tesla Inc, joining other battery producers planning massive U.S. investments to qualify for the new tax credit rules for electric vehicles and to tap into the potentially massive demand in this market. .

Panasonic said in a statement it expects an initial production capacity of 30 gigawatt hours per year at the new plant. This equates to approximately 60% of the company’s current annual EV battery production capacity in Japan and the United States.

Kansas state officials said in July the plant would create up to 4,000 jobs with an investment of up to $4 billion, pending final approval from Panasonic’s board of directors, which has been returned on Monday.

Hirokazu Umeda, chief financial officer of Panasonic Holdings Group, declined to give a specific figure for the investment during an earnings briefing on Monday, but said as a rough estimate it would be “on a scale of more than 4 billions of dollars”.

The company said the plant will produce its Model 2170 lithium-ion battery cells, which are already supplied to Tesla, but could eventually manufacture the more advanced 4680 format battery currently under development, which is about five times larger. and will offer major improvements in terms of cost and range of vehicles.

“We decided to start with the 2170 model, which can be launched with a sense of certainty and speed due to the need for batteries as soon as possible,” Umeda said.

Panasonic has announced that it will begin mass production of the 4680 model at its plant in Wakayama, western Japan, by the end of March 2024, with later expansion to production in North America.

Umeda said the mass production ramp-up is going according to plan.

Panasonic also lowered its full-year operating profit forecast to 320 billion yen ($2.16 billion) on Monday from 360 billion yen for the year ending March 31. That compares to an average of 349.9 billion yen forecast by 19 analysts.

Panasonic posted an 11% drop in second-quarter operating profit, but performed better than analysts’ estimates.

It reported operating profit of 86.1 billion yen for the three months to the end of September, compared with an average profit of 81.6 billion yen estimated by nine analysts, according to Refinitiv data. A year earlier, the company earned 96.8 billion yen.

Although sales of its energy business increased, operating profit fell due to higher raw material and logistics prices, as well as higher development expenses and fixed costs as she was increasing production.
