REUTERS/Benoit Tessier/PoolPARIS (Reuters) - There is still a risk of not reaching a deal in Brexit trade talks between Britain and the European Union, French European Affairs Minister Clement Beaune said on Friday, adding if a good deal cannot be reached France would veto it. “If a good agreement cannot be reached, we will oppose it. Each country has a veto right,” Beaune told Europe 1 radio. Since Britain left the EU in January, negotiators have struggled to overcome their differences, with each side urging the other to make concessions to unlock a trade deal before London’s transition period out of the bloc ends on Dec. 31.

REUTERS/Thomas SuenBEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Friday it firmly opposes the United States’ wanton oppression of its companies and asked America to stop abusing the concept of national security, after the Trump administration added China’s SMIC and CNOOC to a defense blacklist. It will severely harm the U.S. interest and image, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a regular briefing. The United States on Thursday added China’s top chipmaker, SMIC, and oil giant CNOOC to a blacklist of alleged Chinese military companies, a move likely to escalate tensions with Beijing before President-elect Joe Biden takes office.

LONDON (Reuters) -Brexit trade talks are in the difficult phase and a deal can only be struck if the European Union accepts that Britain is a sovereign nation, a British minister said on Friday after London indicated that the chance of a breakthrough was receding. “We are at a critical phase,” Business Secretary Alok Sharma told Sky TV. A British source said the EU had disrupted talks by trying to wrench further concessions at the last minute. EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier is due to update 27 national envoys to the bloc’s hub Brussels on Friday on the latest in the talks. French European Affairs Minister Clement Beaune said on Friday that if a good deal coud not be reached, then France would veto it.

Hungary insists on EU budget and rule of law criteria to be separate: PM

Slideshow ( 2 images )BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary still cannot accept a clause on respecting the rule of law attached to the European Union’s budget and coronavirus recovery fund, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday, adding the political rules should be dealt with separately. He added that an explanatory declaration attached to the regulations, which prompted a senior Polish government member to say Poland might accept the package, would be unacceptable to Budapest. “For us this solution, attaching some statement like a reminder on a sticky note attached on a piece of paper, it won’t work,” Orban told public radio. He said there was no rush to get an agreement on the EU budget this year, adding if the EU does not have an agreement by January, it will have one later. “Leave the legal status quo unchanged and everything will go smoothly and quickly,” he said.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s core machine orders likely rebounded in October along with demand for Japanese exports, a Reuters poll showed on Friday, but a resurgence in coronavirus cases at home and abroad could dampen the economic outlook. REUTERS/Issei KatoCore machinery orders, widely considered an indicator of capital spending in the next six to nine months, likely rose 2.8% in October from the previous month, when orders fell 4.4%, according to the poll of 18 economists. “Machinery orders in the manufacturing sector likely grew led by a recovery in exports,” said Yusuke Shimoda, senior economist at Japan Research Institute. Capital spending, a key component of GDP, likely eased 3.2% in the third quarter, little changed from a 3.4% fall in a preliminary reading, the poll showed. Household spending likely rose 2.5% in October from a year earlier, the poll showed, rebounding from a 10.2% drop in September.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s exports and imports are expected to rise at a faster pace in November, helped by strong demand and coronavirus-related disruptions at factories in other countries, a Reuters poll showed on Friday. Imports likely rose 6.1% on-year, also accelerating from the previous month’s 4.7% pace, buoyed by improving domestic demand and higher commodity prices. “The substitution effect of China’s exports will continue to increase as supply capacity of emerging economies has not recovered yet.”China’s official and private manufacturing surveys also showed new export orders expanded at a faster pace. Some firms reported that a strong yuan squeezed profits and reduced export orders in November, the statistics bureau said this week. [CNY/]UBS forecast China’s GDP growth would rebound to 8.2% in 2021, led by exports and domestic consumption.

CHENNAI (Reuters) - A cyclone that brought heavy rain to parts of southern India and neighbouring Sri Lanka has weakened into a “practically stationary” deep depression, India’s weather office said on Friday. It was not immediately clear how much damage the rains caused in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, which had declared a government holiday in some areas and urged people to stay at home ahead of the cyclone. “(A) deep depression over Gulf of close to Ramanathapuram district coast, remained practically stationary,” the Indian meteorological department said in a statement, referring to the state’s southeast. A cyclone that lashed Tamil Nadu last week killed 23, uprooting trees and cutting power and communication links.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department investigated whether a lawyer for Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, had been involved in a bribery scheme to win clemency for a man convicted of tax crimes, the New York Times said on Thursday. White House senior advisor Jared Kushner looks on at a U.S. President Donald Trump's campaign rally at Fayetteville Regional Airport in Fayetteville, North Carolina, U.S., November 2, 2020. As part of the plan, a San Francisco real estate developer, Sanford Diller, would make an unspecified political contribution, it added. U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell released an order that described what she called a “bribery-for-pardon” investigation. In October, Broidy pleaded guilty in a separate case to legally lobbying Trump to drop an investigation into a Malaysian embezzlement scandal.

OPEC+ was expected to continue existing cuts until at least March, after backing down from plans to raise output by 2 million bpd. Also supporting prices, a bipartisan $908 billion coronavirus aid plan gained momentum in the U.S. Congress.

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilian lab and hospital group DASA SA said on Thursday it has signed an agreement to acquire the Grupo Leforte hospital and clinic company for 1.77 billion reais ($343.6 million). DASA’s board approved the purchase through its wholly owned subsidiary Impar Serviços Hospitalares S.A. of 100% of Biodinamo, which controls Grupo Leforte’s hospital, outpatient care, clinical and diagnostics services. DASA said in a securities filing that adding three hospitals and five clinics to its network, pending anti-trust regulator approval, will turn the Sao Paulo-based company into Brazil’s second-largest independent hospital network. The company said its share structure will not alter and management of the two companies will continue to be separate until Brazil’s anti-trust regulator CADE approves the deal. With a combined revenue of 9 billion reais, in 2019 figures, the merger will create a group of more than 40,000 employees.

In a statement, S&P affirmed Mexico’s ‘BBB’ long-term foreign currency and ‘BBB+’ long-term local currency sovereign credit ratings, news that is likely to be welcomed by the government of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. “(However), the general government deficit should be around 3% of GDP in 2020, much lower than peers given the government’s measured policy response,” S&P wrote. Next year, the economy is expected to grow just over 3.3%, a central bank poll of economic analysts showed this week.

Lawyers for Meng have spoken to Justice Department officials in recent weeks about the possibility of reaching a “deferred prosecution agreement,” the source said, confirming an earlier report in the Wall Street Journal. Under such an agreement, Meng would be required to admit to some of the allegations against her but prosecutors would agree to potentially defer and later drop the charges if she cooperated. She is facing charges of bank fraud for allegedly misleading HSBC Holdings Plc about Huawei Technologies Co Ltd’s business dealings in Iran, causing the bank to break U.S. sanctions. Justice Department spokesman Marc Raimondi declined to comment. Huawei did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.

REUTERS/Fred Greaves(Reuters) - Affirm Holdings Inc has agreed to buy Canadian buy-now-pay-later (BNPL) firm PayBright for C$340 million ($264 million), as the lending startup looks to expand outside the United States. Unlike Affirm, PayBright is a more traditional BNPL company, which lets customers pay for anything from shoes to furniture in interest-free installments, typically over four bi-weekly payments. Through the deal, Affirm could expand its merchant network with PayBright’s more than 7,000 retailers, which include Steve Madden and Samsung. Affirm’s IPO filing showed that close to a third of its revenue in the September quarter came from just one merchant. Affirm, whose major investors include Peter Thiel’s venture firm Founders Fund and Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund GIC, will be competing with Australia’s Afterpay, the largest-listed BNPL firm, and Minneapolis-based Sezzle.
