New rules on installment sales get Saudi thumbs up

Author: Thu, 2019-06-20 05:29 RIYADH: New rules allowing the sale of goods by installment payments in Saudi Arabia have been welcomed by businesses and financial organizations in the Kingdom. The Shoura Council on Monday approved regulations authorizing the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA) to start work on implementing the ruling aimed at protecting consumer interests. Earlier, the Saudi Ministry of Commerce and Investment and SAMA were given the green light to put in place regulatory arrangements on installment sales and licensing. Existing licenses will be valid until they expire, with new licenses being issued by SAMA. The new regulations were expected to be ready within 90 days, and no installment sale licenses would be issued based on the previous regulations. Abdallah Suboh, corporate communication manager at Nissan’s Saudi dealership Alissa Auto, on Wednesday told Arab News: “We welcome the new regulation that is supposed to benefit the consumer.” Zeid Al-Yaeesh, chairman of the General Committee for Financial Companies, an affiliate of SAMA, said the step would protect the market by making available the required data on all clients. The committee would restrict the financing process to licensed entities, ensuring compliance with SAMA’s applied regulations, he added.  Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: SAMASaudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA) SAMA wins Best Risk Manager award among the world’s central bankSaudi consumers splashing the cash once more, says Mastercard boss

From bamboo straws to water-resistant bag, this year's NDP funpack is green at heart

SINGAPORE - This year's National Day Parade (NDP) funpacks may be decked out in Singapore's red and white, but they are green at heart. Designed with sustainability in mind, they include reusable items such as bamboo straws that double up as clappers and a 750ml water bottle. The bag features a water-resistant lining and adjustable straps, allowing it to be carried as a backpack, sling bag or a tote bag. Organisers hope Singaporeans will use the funpack as an «Emergency Ready bag», where they can stash essential items for use in the event of an emergency. Designed in partnership with Temasek Foundation, it has a list of recommended essentials pasted on its inner flap. It also contains QR codes to lead bag owners to the Singapore Civil Defence Force website and the Singapore Red Cross Society's page for details about a free cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) course.
