that they'd signed a security cooperation agreement According to Beijing it's a perfectly normal thing for two sovereign independent nations to do Here's foreign ministry spokesman Wang wing bean China Solomon Islands security cooperation is open transparent and inclusive And does not target any third party Details of the agreement have not been made public but a draft was leaked last month and it set off alarm bells in Australia and the United States If the final version is unchanged China will be able to deploy police or soldiers to the Solomon Islands for training and to help maintain

established Chinese presence there with the government's blessing will change the dynamic in the region It has a number of impacts that will have a chilling effect across the Pacific It puts Australia at risk remember the Cuba missile crisis It will give China a perch near key shipping lanes and right in between the U.S. and its allies It could enable China to cut off Australia and New Zealand and the Pacific island states from the U.S. and vice versa And could have a major impact on the end of Pacific strategy of the U.S. But there's a potential catch Prime minister manasseh sogar is behind

sleep When he didn't have anywhere else to go he'd get high inside the bathroom stall at a public library I think if I had a place to go to where I could safely use where people could see that I needed medical assistance I think it would have avoided a lot of trauma Just last year more than a 100,000 people died of an overdose in the U.S. which is why California lawmakers are debating whether

accused the U.S. of flexing its muscles in the Taiwan strait and saying quote Taiwan independence is a dead end And criminal misdemeanor charge filed for a legal sex crime perpetrated by former New York governor Andrew Cuomo the complaint charges him with putting his hand under a woman's shirt in December 2020 Cuomo had been publicly accused by aid Brittany come also of that act neither prosecutors nor Cuomo have commented to the state In San Francisco I'm at Baxter This is Bloomberg Doug thank you Eddie Let's get to our guest Grace whoo is with us She is head of Greater China banks raiding at Fitch ratings joining us from our studios in Hong Kong to focus a little bit on China banks Grace thanks for being with us I got to begin with the evergreen story because in my mind I'm just wondering the exposure that Chinese banks may have to this property developer we keep getting these stories trickling out about this bond payment Yes we're going to make payment at the 11th hour and avoid default Is there a lot of systemic risk here where the big banks in China are concerned involving the ever grant story If you look at the third quarter results that just came out over the last couple of days it almost seems there's no impact on the bank's reported performance And part of that is because the direct exposure to property developers in general are quite low in China It's about 7% of bank loans Even if we were to include residential mortgage loans which are about 19% of the system knowns the fact that long-term value ratios in China are quite modest and within China that helps mitigate some of the risks But that said I think it's mindful not to undermine what's happening with ever grown because of the stories bigger here It's whether there's risk of spillover in terms of home buyer confidence which may then result in a more long-term decline in property prices We've seen popular sales come down although for the management we think that is mostly because of regulatory tightening so far this year So we expect to see some loosening in fourth quarter which will help ease some of the pressures So at the moment no we do not expect a systematic risk concerning properties Well grace when you say you expect some regulatory loosening in the fourth quarter are you looking specifically at the things that would be most affecting banks or more broadly across all industries Because we know broadly the fact that this months long now industry after industry after industry tightening up a regulatory crackdown has happened in China that this is something that seems to have sort of spread across the economy and certainly when investors look at investing in any Chinese company right now including banks people they want to find the opportunities but I think there is that kind of concern We expect possible loosening in the form of triple R reductions for example And also banks accelerating their mortgage approval and loosening some of the near term credit to property developers for refinancing purposes but we do not expect a significant loosening because that will set back the regulatory tightening that were in place in the past couple of years to address this semantic risk Grace very quickly do we need to differentiate between some of the major banks in China the state owned kind of entities versus some of the smaller regional banks at this point Yes I think they're continued to be a diverse risk profile between the different tiers of banks And that's been illustrated in the PBOC's ability to report last month that shows that indeed the weaker smaller banks do tend to be more vulnerable to these type of stress because of their weaker capital buffers Yeah I'm curious too about the health of the consumer in China and the degree to which that may represent some degree of risk consumer loans I mean how are they functioning.

So i think you know the us sensing the each the eu sensing the eat but bilaterally they have a lot of disagreements about how to move forwards and by actually they also have a lot of concerns and problems within themselves. So i think what's interesting in the next twelve months or twenty four months would be to see how much you know. The eu would actually moved slightly towards us position when it comes to policy-making of china and all the while the chinese can absolutely sit back and watch watch that bickering take place. Yesterday was quite astonishing. Insofar as the talks were held on chinese territory the The the chinese diplomat's very forthright in their rebuking of the united states diplomats. One very much got the sense that the chinese were saying. You're on our territory. We will tell you what we think of you and we will tell it to our own people as well and that was absolutely the kind of message that the chinese foreign ministry has been saying as long as soon as they announced. Wendy sherman's visit in the first place. there was a reporter asking. You know one of the spokespeople of the foreign ministry. Oh what would you know. How would you react to wendy.

Sherman's visit to insist heat. That is only thirty minutes away from beijing being so close to the capital amid a pandemic that is still i mean despite china's success in curbing the pandemic it's still feeling the heat.

We'll still have the see particularly because you know. seeking pain precedent has not been traveling out of china's since the start of the pandemic whether he feels comfortable enough to travel all the way to room is one thing and the other thing is what kind of outlook are we. Seeing visiting u s china relations. Are we seeing more quote unquote coercive diplomacy from. I decide whether there will be more policy. Making more monitoring international coalition on either side of the ocean and whether that kind of atmosphere would be conducive one the to lead us to sit down and talk business.
