continue reading » Total vehicle sales continued to plummet in April, falling to 8.6 million annualized units. Monthly sales levels were down 47.8 percent versus April 2019 and hit the lowest number on record since January 1976 when the Commerce Department began recording data series.“Most of the country was under stay-at-home orders in April, severely depressing consumers’ ability to visit showrooms, not to mention the macroeconomic effects of Coronavirus on the broader economy,” said NAFCU Chief Economist and Vice President of Research Curt Long in a new Macro Data Flash report.“Reports suggest that the auto market has bottomed and that sales activity remained fairly flat over the latter half of April,” he added.Sales of cars and light trucks both decreased during the month, falling to 1.9 million annualized units and 6.6 million annualized units, respectively. However, light trucks continue to dominate the market share, with truck sales down 43.3 percent year-over-year and auto sales dropping 59.3 percent.

Circumstances caused by the spread of COVID-19 disease directly affected the decline in passenger traffic at Croatian airports. Although air traffic began to open more and more after lockdown and after the euphoria due to the more than excellent season, as expected, the numbers still show the real situation. Namely, in July 2020, Croatian airports recorded 363 passengers or even 805% less than in the same month last year, when the turnover was 81,6 passengers. The total number of aircraft landings and take-offs at airports in July 2020 was 9, a decrease of 277% compared to July 53,0, when the number of landings and take-offs was 2019. The most significant international passenger traffic was realized with German airports, 96 thousand passengers, which is a decrease of 72,0% compared to the same period last year. Source: CBS The largest passenger traffic was realized by Split Airport with 169 thousand passengers (a decrease of 76,5% compared to July 2019, when 720 thousand passengers were transported), followed by Zagreb Airport with 77 thousand passengers (a decrease of 78,8% in compared to July 2019, when 364 thousand passengers were transported) and Dubrovnik Airport with 58 thousand passengers (a decrease of 88,6% compared to July 2019, when 511 thousand passengers were transported).
The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) may not be able to publish its proposals for a holistic balance sheet (HBS) before 2015, according to chairman Gabriel Bernardino.Speaking at the EIOPA conference in Frankfurt, the chairman also said there was an obligation for second and third pillar pensions to draw up a key investor document (KID) for their clients.“We are all waiting for the proposal on a revised IORP Directive, which will be a fundamental step going forward,” Bernadino noted.But he added of proposals for the HBS, included in the Directive’s first pillar and later postponed by internal markets commissioner Michel Barnier: “There had been a clear word from the commission welcoming further work on the pillar I elements and that is our work programme for next year.” According to the EIOPA chairman the number of options for the HBS “will be narrowed down” from the current number of proposals.However, he said that this would be counteracted by a fleshing out of the proposals, such as which discount rate to apply to long-term investments, questions on how to value sponsor support, but also how national regulators would respond to an HBS approach.“For example will a supervisor immediately push for additional funding – that is not how we intended it,” Bernadino pointed out.He expects a proposal to be delivered late next year or “possibly in 2015”. On the question of further information and transparency requirements for pension providers, Bernadino reiterated EIOPA’s position set out in its advice to the commission on the IORP that “we want key investor documents (KID) for pensions, specifically for DC pensions within the second pillar” and “for personal pensions of course we need to have it”.This afternoon the European Parliament is voting on the PRIPs Directive on information requirements for investment products, which German pension association aba has warned could also end up covering second pillar pensions.Bernadino said whether further information disclosure requirements for pensions were introduced “in one or the other piece of legislation is not my concern”.The chairman said: “We need to have progress in this area, we need KID which in both pillars deliver better, not more information.”
