Valencia Announces SOS, Needs To Tap Government LIquidity Support Just Eurogroup Accepts Spanish Bailout Plan

UPDATE: It would appear the right hand has no idea what the left hand is doing in Spain, as via Bloomberg:

  • *MONTORO SAYS VALENCIA HASN'T SOUGHT RESCUE

but

  • *VALENCIA TO TAP SPAIN'S REGIONAL FINANCING FACILITY
  • *VALENCIA GOVT COMMENTS IN STATEMENT ON WEBSITE TODAY

Just as today's largely expected announcement that the Eurogroup has formally agreed to accpet the Spanish bail out (details still lacking), the Spanish region of Valencia just became the second to officially demand a bailout following Catalunya's comparable announcement at the end of May, and has announced it will need to tap the government liquidity mechanism. Kneejerk reaction: EURUSD sharply lower and below 1.22 for the first time in days.

From Reuters:

Spain's heavily indebted eastern region of Valencia said on Friday it would apply for help under the government's 18 billion euro plan passed on Thursday aimed at helping regional finances.

 

The plan comes with strict conditionality that a region stick to its deficit cutting plans.

Concurrent with this announcement, Spain also announced an update to its deficit projections, whose details are meaningless as they will be revised adversely shortly, which confirmed that the Spanish economy continues to deteriorate at an accelerating pace.

maybe Valencia and Catalunya shouldn't have spent so much hosting F1 and Moto GP rounds.

Maybe they'll actually pay the accounts that are in arrears.

Stop the bailouts and let the insolvent circus burn, please! If the markets can't do their work, the fire will.

Good job the construction industry is going so well.

 

Construction numbers are unsurprisingly weak too

The European statistics agency has reported on European construction activity and I guess you have already figured which side of the ledger Spain is likely to be on! For the Euro area as a whole construction rose on the month by 0.1% but was 8.4% lower than a year earlier. Breaking it down on a monthly basis we saw.

the largest decreases in Slovenia (-17.5%), Hungary (-4.1%) and Spain (-3.3%).

And on an annual basis.

The largest decreases were registered in Spain (-24.8%), Slovenia (-23.7%) and Portugal (-16.4%),

Spain has seen a fall in every month in 2012 in construction which let’s face it is hardly a surprise. I was also interested to see such a large negative annualised number for Portugal the same Portugal which is supposed to be “on track”. In fact the International Monetary Fund was praising its again only on Monday although I did note a mention of this.

the daunting challenges that Portugal still faces

And Ryanair (think SWA for comparison) has just announced that it is stopping many flights from the UK to Madrid and Barcelona from this winter. It is unhappy with increased fees at the airports. That's another 2,000 Spaniards out of work and the loss of a very cheap (if crappy) airline that was flying 2.2 million passengers between the UK and Spain. Many of them will probably now fly elsewhere.

No brains no headache.. Would make a great slogan for our Spanish politicians.  Just announced here in Spanish journal, La Expansion, that part of the anti crisis measures is to increase taxes on school materials for children from 4% to 21%.  Bu they, we got the 100 billion to try and bailout our insolvent banking system.  Viva la libertad!!!

should be a "crisis committee"...the time for summits passed three years ago. there has been no leader on this issue from the get-go...at ANY level. the question now is "what are the consequences for failure?" as we can see vis a vis the euro "not good on that front."

Obama could create a Euro-Czar to go with the Euro-Commissars.

Should be a "kamikaze meeting" the time for crisis committees passed a year ago.

If Valencia would have been a Spanish bank, we would rescue it.
