India starts 'world's biggest' COVID-19 vaccination drive
"The world's biggest national vaccination campaign is now underway. Not in the U. S. But India today's the first day that Indians congrats the Corona virus vaccine and the Indian government aims to inoculate 300 million people by July. NPR's Lauren Frayer is in Mumbai. Lauren. Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks for having me Scott 300 million people is almost the entire population of the United States and they're going to vaccinate them all in less than six months. How do they plan to do it? Yes, So, of course, it's only about 20% of this country, and that's just the first batch. It'll take a couple years to vaccinate all nearly 1.4 billion Indians. But India is doing this in much the same way it organizes elections, which is spread out over weeks. Here, they're using voter rolls to identify people and just like poll workers carry Elektronik voting machines up to mountaintop monasteries and villages in the jungle. They have these mobile medical teams to bring vaccines on ice to the remote ist places in India. Now, most of the vaccines centers that open today are in hospitals in big cities like in Mumbai, where I am and we know today's the first day. What's the scene? Like in Mumbai? There's an atmosphere of excitement. It's frontline and health workers. Some of these air sanitation workers who are among the first one's getting vaccinated. Some of them got flowers from well wishers. Government ministers are crowding in everybody's trying to take Photos here is the dean of a medical school in Chennai. Her name is our Jayanti and truly a very privileged beneficially today. And I'm feeling absolutely fine. It's almost more than five minutes inside of the news. I'm feeling great. Now she's in the first group of 30 Million Frontline workers. Next in line is anyone over 50 or with a pre existing condition and which vaccine or vaccines? Is India using? Yes, so there are two in use here, one developed by Oxford University and the big pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca. The other is from an Indian company called Bharat Biotech. Both are being manufactured inside India. India is the world's biggest vaccine maker. And so a lot of the covert vaccines being used around the world will actually be mass manufactured right here in people choose. No, they can't and that is a bit of a controversy because most Indians will get the AstraZeneca won. The local manufacturer here is turning out about 100 million doses a month. Now half of those are for export. The other vaccine. Indian one is still in phase three clinical trials in data isn't yet out. Here is one of the critics. Deena's talk or is a public health activist. It may very well be a good vaccine. It's just that we don't know enough about except fricassee. Concerned absence off the efficacy data. I mean, people are asking the question talking. Why? Why did you do that? Why did the government approved this vaccine is what he's asking. And what does the government say? Well, the drug regulator says it wanted to have more than one vaccine available for Indians, the company behind the vaccine. Bharat Biotech, says its formula is 200% safe. There's really some speculation that the government just approved this out of pride really that it wanted to approve an Indian maid vaccine alongside one from a big multinational company like AstraZeneca. We've done stories here, of course, about hesitancy among some Americans about taking the vaccine. I wonder if that's reflected in India, too. It's much less of a thing in India. Actually, India managed to eradicate polio and lots of other diseases through big vaccine drives like this. India also has the second highest Covad caseload in the world behind the U. S. The viruses Devastated the Indian economy. And so there's a hope that you know this. This vaccination campaign allows India to return to normalcy.

The people say they are disgusted with their behavior. The people make no distinction between British imperialism and the British people to them. The two are one this hatred even make them welcome the Japanese. It is most dangerous angels and means that they will exchange one slavery for another. We must get rid of this feeling. Our quarrel is not with the British people. We fight their imperialism. The proposal for the withdrawing withdrawing of British power did not come out of anger it came to enable India to play his do part at the present critical juncture. It is not happy position for a big country like India India to be merely helping with money immaterial obtained Willy Nilly from her while the United Nations are conducting war. We cannot evoke the chew spirit of sacrifice and Valor. So so long as we are not free I know the British government will not be able to withhold freedom from us in. We have made enough self sacrifice we must therefore purge ourselves of hatred. Speaking for myself. I can say that I have never felt any hatred. As a matter of fact I feel myself to be a friend of the British now than ever before one reason is that they are today today in distress my very friendship therefore demands that I should try to save them from their mistakes as I view the situation there on the brink of an abyss at therefore it becomes my duty to warn them other danger even though it may for the time being angered them to the point of cutting off their friendly hand that stretched out to help them.

How to Build a Great Product Strategy
"Today I wanted. I wanted to talk about something that I have found very valuable in my career. So far I have used a lot of these frameworks and a lot of these things to decide on how to build my product and how to strategize on how things should be digging to market and other aspects of it. So let's do the first sort of case study that I want to cover The Yours Twenty twelve. The company is Reliance Jio so let me let me add some context on on the market and company. I so reliance. Jio Is a Internet company in India Indonesia twelve they got the license for For Operating Four G. services throughout India India did not have four G. Services at that time name and so- GIO is really looking to make a big splash in this market. A little bit about the market itself. So India yeah at that time despite having one billion people only at one hundred thirty seven million Internet users so penetration was pretty low about eleven percent. It was growing pretty quick so twenty six percent year on year growth but still sort of a waste to go in terms of smartphone own Benadryl that was even lower so only sixty seven million smartphone users in India at that time about six percent of doral telecom users had smartphones at the time. So so here's here's my question based on all of that. What kind of Guy Chris? Thanks do you guys think would be the best selling points for the net brought up in this market and context six. Okay yeah okay. What else if you think of like four G.? Internetwork were what comes to mind first speed video. Yeah exactly so so. That's that's pretty much the the sort of lines that going on now you know fi- five speeds hard. We get this to more people low latency connectivity those kinds of things in terms of thinking of competitors who who do you think our main competitors would be in this market. Yeah Yeah Yup do G and three G service providers. Yeah Yeah so yup that that's kind of how we were thinking about our market and competitors at. Ah Dime this is. This is the list of Delegation players in India. At the time. How how would you segment the this this market in terms terms of customers? Like how would you decide what kind of customers to go for And you know like what kind of products bill for customer segments etcetera so. Yeah Okay Yeah. And so you're saying basically based on the industry or based on if it's a B. Two B. versus COSC-. Yeah okay. Yeah but I'm trying to get to a dimension or very level over this like what are the dimensions age is one thing. Yeah yeah over. New Rule like income levels those kinds of things so yeah all of those are the sort of demographic characteristics that we were looking at This is where we we sort of hit. Hit some roadblocks so we figured out all of this was wrong. We figured that and this was. It's not a novel concept if you when you look back on it but sort of thinking Ford. It's always something that you miss. Don't think about which is that. People don't want a jail because they want the drill. They want the drill because they want the whole right people want to hold. They don't want the drought so in the same way for us. What we realized is people don't want Internet? They want stuff that they can do with that. Internet smartphone penetration was only sixty million people. What what are we going to do by giving people for gene demand if they don't have smartphones if they don't have gone to undefeated if they don't have things the use that four G. Internet four so we started doing was instead of instead of segmenting our customers by Democrat demographics or products and services? We moved to this jobs to be done kind of framework and figuring out. What is the job that these customized need to get done that they wanted to hire Gio and the Internet for we started segmenting bull in terms of you know first time users people who want to buy the smartphone for this first first time people who love watching TV and they may be worn get more if the content side of things people want to connectivity? They won't let things like Connecting to their friends and family having high-speed video galling etc.. So should that's when we start. We shifted our mindset to thinking about. How do we move away from the guy at Christie's of Internet itself but we start talking about what is the the actual jobs to be done? That people were higher Gio for and that's that's what I talked about so so we talked about content. We talked about videos does overseers. We talked about Payment Solutions Shopping Devices all of those things and this is what we ended up launching and sort of actually building so twenty four dean. We launched a smartphone which was the cheapest smartphone. The one This this smartphone I think was about seventy dollars. Unlocked contract It it was the way to sort of build our our market because our market wasn't the one point two billion people in India the people who have smartphones and an ability to consume four G.. Internet so oh so. That's what we did. We only launched the the phone. We didn't even launch for services at this point. Two years later is when we launched a slew of applications nations. Gone Dan Services all of these things that will build on top of this new four G. Wound saying if yours all this great stuff if you WanNa take advantage of all of this stuff. The four G. is sort of the bare bones infrastructure which you need to get to these products and these jobs Do Redone so so just the close out. This case Gio ended up launching their telecom services in sixteen it was the fastest elegant launch success excess in the world We got one hundred million customers in the fourth one hundred eighty days of launch I think the GM was like last week and they. They're at three learned. Forty million now so that the second biggest alcon provider in the world today that's the that's the internet usage that so so all right when GIO launched went up NYNEX in in a matter of you know six months so the demand was there. People were willing to use the WH- we're willing to use the bandwidth as long as you give them something to do with that Before that people didn't have anything to do with with the content and with the bat. Excuse me with the bandwidth. That was out there. So so that's like the big shift that we saw in the market and then obviously below Like behind all of this was the content itself so we saw not just the GIO APPS but even competing providers see big spikes in their usage and the way that they were benefiting the market

King Louis the fifteenth had the court jeweler reset the diamond and a piece of ceremonial jewelry decades later during the French Revolution King Louis the Sixteenth and Marie Antoinette attempted to flee France and the crown jewels were given to the government in September of seventeen ninety two while the King Marie Antoinette were imprisoned thieves broke into the royal storehouse and stole the French blue diamond during a a nearly week long looting of the crown jewels according to some historians one of the thieves took the diamond to Howrah thin to London where he tried to sell it the diamond's whereabouts for the next couple of decades are unclear but in eighteen twelve a large John was recorded as being in the possession of a London diamond diamond merchant named Daniel Eliason that demand was likely the modern hope diamond cut from the French Blue King George the fourth worth of the United Kingdom later acquired the stone and it was probably sold upon his death to pay off debt once the diamond came into possession the hope of banking family it became known as the hope diamond since then the stone has been sold several times reset and re cut the diamond made it to the US in nineteen eleven when Pierre Cartier sold it to American heiress Evelyn Walsh McLean in nineteen Kim fifty eight Harry Winston Inc donated the diamond to the Smithsonian institution it weighs forty five point fifty two carrots and the Smithsonian me an institution describes is color as fancy dark grayish blue the pinned it surrounding the diamond is made up sixteen white diamonds and it's necklace chain contains taints forty-five white diamonds. The hope diamond is now housed at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. It has a reputation for being curse since it's associated with a bunch of unfortunate events. There's a good chance these rumors were a marketing ploy to bring attention to the hope diamond
Lord Bilimoria on the Business of Beer
"Now in the u._k. In particular you will struggle to find an indian restaurant saronto that a dozen serve cobra beer launched by lord karen bilimoria three decades ago the brand success story and is now exported to over a forty countries around the world however lord bilimoria entrepreneurial passan's being all without bumps along the way he joins me in the studio to talk talk about the lessons he's learned how the business of beer exchanging and the brand s- plans for the future but i he explains how the whole story actually begins dennis with bono sticks. That was my first business venture. Because i played polo for cambridge we beat oxford <hes> in the <hes> and i then organized and led the first <hes> indian tour for cambridge university's team and i came back with some sample poodle sticks and i started selling them and before i knew it i was in business and selling them to lily early wide to harrods to the queen's <hes> sadler's and we were in business and that was a precursor because my big idea when i was a student at cambridge was to bring out a beer from india india a beer that would satisfy both lager and ale drinkers alike because i i found i hated physi- english loggers and i loved english british ale but i found that the air was too bitter and too heavy and <hes> didn't accompany food at all older. It was very smooth when you're drinking zone and i found on the physi- loggers were just awful drink on their own and just did not go well with the food because they were bloating so that's been the idea evolved while i was a student at cambridge to come up with this bear that sits in between a logger nail refreshment for lager smoothens a financial combined they would appeal to all types of beer drinkers anywhere in the world have globally appealing taste aced and most importantly a beer that would accompany or food including indian food and curry so what were the first actual steps then in launching that business launching cobra for i was the lucky introduction to india's biggest independent brewery which again the biggest stroke of luck had the best brew master in india a young dynamic brewer from india who'd spent six years in the czech republic in prague had from prague university was a biochemist and knew all about brewing beer had worked one of the top czech beers pilsen during his internship he knew all about i knew nothing about bring beer but i had this idea and i sat in the laboratory with him in bangalore and conveyed this idea to with thirty samples of bottled title beer from england carefully selected saying this is what i like about this year. This is what i don't like about this beer trying to convey this extra smoother less gassy taste of cobra which led to very complex recipe which is what cobras and we've got this craft beer boom in in this country at the moment. We're covers is an ultimate craft beer. It's called malted barley rice rice maize wheat. It's double fermented sco three varieties of bavarian hops. It's a really delicate complex now. On the highest idea we should know more about beer back came the day when you were approaching this brew. No i knew what i wanted. I knew the tastes that i wanted as a drinker as a consumer and i saw that gap in the market and and sure enough when we brought out cobra it did demonstrate straight away that it went incredibly well with food we ninety-nine percent reorders from day one and my hi dream was to produce the finest ever in beer then to to make that a global beer brand and <hes> once you get those reorders in those early days it gives you the confidence to go go on extrapolate that into a global beer brand well. You lost in one thousand nine hundred nine and he didn't have much money for advertising partly due to your student debt. So what do you think think were the main two weeks. How did you manage to get your bottles in restaurants. Then i find that when you start and businesses and entrepreneurs and i think any entrepreneur would probably doubly identify with this you have to cross what school the credibility gap that nobody knows you. Nobody knows your brand. You have zero credibility. So so how do you convince people to supply to finance you to buy from you when you have zero credibility and i find that people will do those do things if you are passionate and have faith and belief in yourself and in your product and your brand and in your idea because that gives is people the confidence and the fates to trust you to give you a chance and i always believed i had something that was going to be different and that was going to be better and that was going to change the marketplace. How many respirators were trying to say no to you. Oh the the word you come across more than anything when you start is a very short word and it's a two letter word and and it's no would you like to buy my no. It's just a no and you have to make note a yes and you have to convert obstacles into opportunities and i could give you example after example of how we had to convert obstacles into opportunities for example we could only import the big double size six fifty bottles from from india because the brewery said you're probably going to fail and we only produce six fifty emma bottles even in india to this day that ninety percent bear sales in india are sold in a standard six fifty. I'm double size bottle and they said if you want more bottles it means ordering different modes change parts for our bottling line investment by us. If you're around in one year's time we'll give you a small bottles but first prove yourself so the big bottles and you go to the restaurants in the u._k. At that time they were i used to small bottles or draft beer now. We couldn't draft all the way from bangalore and the restaurants that what we're gonna do with these big bottles and you convert that obstacle into an opportunity and you say well. That is the way sold in idiots. You'll centric way of nydia and it's a double sized borough so when you're selling you're selling to c._o. Selling more beer and then you win. You serve indian food at the tables often. Your customers was we'll share dishes in the same way they can share this bottle and using a sharing concept you'll find you will sell more and more food and then what is more people at other tables. We'll see how what are they. Drinking looks like a bottle of wine knows auto bottom lines bottle outright and it spreads like wildfire and your weight is also leave the bottles on the table. It frees him up to do other the work so everyone wins your business. Your business grew exponentially during the first years but you'll be since journey didn't go oh all without bumps for example the year two thousand eight hundred. It's difficult for you wasn't it. I always say that <hes> <hes> success is a relative term and success is not a destination. It's a journey and most entrepreneurs will will say to you. It's a very difficult tough and challenging done journey with lots of ups and downs and i nearly lost my business three times and the last time was in two thousand nine <hes> during the financial crisis in the great recession when we nearly lost it. We came very close losing everything and each one of those times that i lost my business often. It was things out of the blue very few people in the world. Very few of the economists in the world predicted due to the financial crisis. There was less than a handful around the world who predicted it so when things come out of the blue it's how you deal with those crises and yes you can look back and one of my favorite things thanks good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment so yes. I made mistakes looking back on it with probably had far too much debt. I i did not anticipate the financial crisis. I probably hide some of the wrong people but the things that got me through each of those crises was having a very strong brand. Cobra grew was having the support of my loyalty members who were excellent and my family my wife who stood by me through the ups and downs where i met one year after i started cobra and also the third thing was always doing things the right way with integrity so it's better to fail doing the right thing then to succeed doing the wrong thing. What do human points equity will the best definition of the word integrity and people will say doing the right thing acting honestly <hes> the best definition i ever ever heard was from the archbishop of canterbury ruin williams when he was archbishop canterbury who came to visit the zorostrian center and i'm patron of disaster and community here in the u._k. Given smallest communities in the world and i welcomed him as a patron and then he made his speech and he said lord bill morris has used the word integrity twice in his speech speech and he said the word integrity comes from the latin and greek words intiga integrum and he says is the restaurant parsi communities renowned for his integrity and the word integrity means wholeness. You cannot practice integrity. If as an individual you're fragmented in front of the light you can only practice integrity if your whole and complete and i've never forgotten that and <hes> we've always tried to in in british play with a straight bat and i've found that helped get me through the crises

Saudi Aramco inks deal with India's Reliance Industries
"Saudi arabia is making a high stakes investment in india's. The world's largest crude oil exporter seeks is to deepen its ties with the fastest growing energy consumer. The saudi state energy giant plans to take a twenty percent stake in reliance industries refining and petrochemicals business valuing the businesses seventy five billion dollars he was to discuss the deal is angry rebel. They're not senior energy correspondent down the line rejoined oil mumbai correspondent benjamin parkyn so then what are the terms of the deal and how favorable are they reliance well aramco is going to take a twenty cent stake in realizes oil and in petrochemicals business which valued at seventy five billion dollars including debt so that means we'll get about fifteen billion dollars which is a huge sum and one of the largest foreign investments ever in india in addition reliance will obviously get access to saudi arabia's enormous oil reserves cbs. You'll get access to aramco's technology which will help to make it's refunding operation most sophisticated and so on and it will get access to around close was management expertise and aramco will appoint some managerial positions within the new unit there for me however the deal isn't finalized finalized yet and they're all details to resolve realizes channel mckay shabani initially announced it in a very confident fashion at their annual general meeting meeting but aramco went onto a little bit of cold water on that by saying that it was still a relatively early stage however ryan so confident that it's just a matter of time crime until they concluded and what's the appeal of the indian market for saudi aramco around the foreign oil and gas majors increase investments in the country to well b._p. And reliance lines recently entered into a deal to form a network of petrol stations and aviation fuels business so clearly oil and gas majors are interested in india and for a good reason because it's the foss granted you consumer in the world and it is among the fastest growing larger economies you know there are literally tens of millions of people people and even hundreds of millions of people in some cases entering these new markets as consumers for the first time so whether it's driving causal the most cycles flying in planes buying and switching on t._v.'s getting connected to the electric grid and no other country in the world bar i guess us china can claim anything like that so with dimond lagging in other parts of the world india is very very important for aramco and other big oil and gas companies reliance particularly important for aramco well reliance <unk> has one of the world's largest and most fisted refining operations they state of the art complex in gujarat on india's west coast i but crucially reliance also has a strong presence throughout india and across regions and sectors that few others can claim seem to have a presence so it has an incredible research among indian consumers and in addition to its oil and chemical business this it has to very fast growing revenue businesses in retail reliance retail and in digital services called gio and now it's not obvious obvious how these could help a company like aramco or b._p. But there are lots of opportunities and reliance executives have talked about that so gio has three hundred forty million mobile customers which is equivalent or larger than the population of the u._s. So it's a huge is base of people and gio creates kind of loyalty scheme whereby its customers have an incentive to refuel at a specific petrol station and network or whatever it is or realize of land on which aramco could build if they need to which would massively speed up. What's otherwise is a time consuming and painful bureaucratic process. What will relies use the investment ford. One crucial thing is to pay down its debt so so realizes come under an increasing amount of scrutiny for its growing debt pile precisely because it spent a huge amount of money in order to build up this digital gio business us almost from scratch in some senses ties and that debt of around twenty billion out of the end of the most recent financial year which is much larger than what i had a few years years ago so this has concerned some investors and holidays to downgraded the radio net stock so alongside side the aramco deal reliance announced that does zero company by twenty twenty one and the roughly fifty billion dollars is going to get is gonna make a huge difference to that needless to say but reliance is adamant that the deal is not about paying down debt. It's a strategic partnership and it's part of a broader vision that involves loves bringing on mopeds no just in the oil business but across the company in order to sort of shake up the way its run and its management structure and how will it's digital and retail business with its oil and chemicals operation the retail and digital businesses current account for around thirty percent of eba but reliance wants to increase that share to around half now. This is all part of a quite an ambitious strategy to go from being a business that refined oil and makes wchs petrochemicals to a consumer facing giant that will provide you with everything from mobile phones to your t._v. Service to clothes to to food on multiple now notice to do this. The company plans to restructuring quite a significant so wants to separate the oil and chemical unit then twitch around investing into a separate entity within five years and may listed it also wants to list raced gio and reliance retail over similar timeframe so in five years time reliance will look very different and you know something more akin to a holding company will do succeed in winning regulatory approval rawlins's confident that it will it will be closed by march next year yea twenty twenty but as i said the terms still have to be finalized with aramco who relevant more hesitant in their own statements turning to you how does this deal fitting with aramco's overall strategy so saudi aramco has made huge efforts over the last few years to expand abroad and this is mainly through asia and false growing emerging economies and it struck huge number refinery partnerships across asia from korea korea announced india. The plan is always to lock in future sales of crude. It's a measure of security for the world's biggest oil exporter exporter to be able to do this. The point is also that it wants to secure these markets where demand is still growing quite quickly. Particularly as consumption elsewhere begins to weaken and over time beginning c mo remove this particularly with big global push towards cleaner gina fuels and so this is part of their overall strategy tools diversification so diversification but in a slightly different sense the kingdom and muhammad had bin salman the crown prince of saudi arabia has actually talked about moving the country's economy beyond oil but if it wants to do that it needs to have a steady stream of cash coming from its existing oil and gas businesses in order to fund all the new stuff and create saudi arabia two point. Oh so whether it be in technology or tourism mining all these other sectors that saudi arabia wishes it could it will be an expert in at some point but it has to leverage its know-how in order to do that. You mentioned the saudi arabia's efforts to diversify away from fossil fuels away from dirty sources. She's a fantasy. Where is it that with particular process so the kingdom's diverse vacation of its economy is largely to do with securing its future future government revenues and it's extremely early stages. They've tried to invest in a huge number of technology companies abroad these very fast growing foreign companies in some ways but actually not generating the kinds of revenues traditional oil and gas businesses can deliver so it's very tricky will also happened as they've been trying to embark walk upon this big plan led by the very powerful and quite impatient crown prince is that they have had a series of political crises from the killing of journalist jamaica shoji and what the has done is created this sort of wave international censure and stops the country okay from getting these funds from abroad that really needed to help diversify the country's economy but this is another reason why they've turned to india india has been <hes> with open arms and is really willing to legitimize and give saudi arabia that ranking as a global investment went powerhouse with a deal like this and also because india's economy still heavily reliant on polluting fossil fuels so we'll aramco's technical no hair that they've they seem offered as part of this deal helping to cut back on the pollutants the so damaging to the health of the population why would say at this stage. The answer is probably no do india has got one of the most aggressive renewables programs out there but the demand is growing so quickly that they need more of everything everything whether it be oil gas coal even as well as newer forms of energy clean like solar so india is probably googly looking to saudi arabia to ensure that indian energy security is firmly in place and this remember comes a time when oil all supplies from countries such as iran or venezuela have really been disrupted. It's obviously a private company reliance but there is a broader context in which this deal is happening. You mentioned the the fall of supply from venezuela and iran in terms of the amount of oil. Were talking about as part of this steal. Will this offset the loss of those imports for india from around because of the u._s. sanctions. So what we've already seen is that some countries such as saudi arabia and iraq have tried to replace runyon barrels not just in india but other countries too and the thinking here is for reliance that they will end end up securing forty percent of the amount of oil that they need from saudi aramco itself but they're still will be other suppliers out there and eventually how how confident the saudi aramco the still will go through saudi aramco has said that india's massive strategic priority for the company and the country but the chief financial of did say on the company's first ever earnings call that the deal was still at a very early stage due do you diligence was still required over the next four months or say and board approval was still require it so they really were trying to as bensaid waterdown how far hour-long the steel had gone to but would save very senior. Officials in saudi arabia and also in india definitely would have had to sign off on this to even get to this point.
Apple starts shipping India-made iPhones to European markets
"Big news for Apple and India to end the week I that country's economic times says iphone six as an iphone seven units made in India are now being exported to the European markets contract manufacturer wistron is said to be cranking those out the way the report sees it the move to use India as an export hub would bear well for both the country and apple while it would cement India's position edition isn't attractive destination for foreign investment for not just domestic market but also exports apple would benefit by fulfilling requirements for other markets from outside China its largest base for contract manufacturing for iphones phones of course China has been a dicey proposition of late. Thanks to the heating and Cooling and heating trade war between the country and the U._S.. Economic Times reminds readers of recent reports that had apple apple asking suppliers such as Wistron Foxconn and Petron to see about moving fifteen percent to thirty percent of their apple production out of China. Thanks to the simmering trade war. The peace has industry watchers. Archer saying they think apple is treating India more as a production hub than a significant market. It is worth remembering though that's pretty much how apple treated China back in the day as well. It's kind of an inspiring collection of gears ears and springs. If apple can rent production of iphones out of India that avoids some potential tariffs impossible blow back from the Chinese government at the same time it can stop paying import tariffs on iphones coming into India India because hi there being made in India that increased production could attract more manufacturing to India which means more jobs leading to fingers crossed a better standard of living ending with more people able to afford this stuff that apple's making but wait. There's more quoting the report apples local business will also benefit from scaling up manufacturing operations helping it avoid import duties thus allowing it to price its devices lower or invest the cost savings and it's retail chain besides scaled up local manufacturing could help apple meet local sourcing norms that are a pre requisite for opening its own stores in in India but wait. There's still more call to Mac highlights or Reuters report. That says Foxconn is ramping up production of iphone tennis an IPHONE ten are in India with an eye toward selling them on the subcontinent the way the colts sees it. The phones will be less expensive than imported units and might improve apple's sales in the huge potential market kind of exciting. I mean most people in India will not be able to afford an iphone. Ten are even one made in the country but by dodging the import tariff more people will be able to afford one then can currently by this Nellie while the colts has apple will sell the two thousand eighteen iphones in India the Economic Times piece as apple plans to export between seventy percent and eighty percent of the two hundred fifty thousand late model iphones. It's heard Foxconn will produce in India. India each month put the Foxconn iphone ten s ten our stuff and the maybe pile the economic times piece attributes that news to industry watchers while Reuters attributed two unnamed sources but there are too many good reasons for apple and Foxconn to Wanat and too many heads said they'll try for it to completely discount talk.

None of our living half our listeners to can't afford frigging internet like we're worried about it. You know, if I hope they can they gotta listen to this show. They streaming on their phone. That's the internet. I had to move thing. When I was looking at it was just like freaking out. You know, though, it was Nogues on me fifty four million illegal downloads. Yeah.

Why the 2019 Indian election feels different to 2014
"Today. We chat with one of the world's leading communists about India richer Shama from Morgan Stanley. He's argument is that in rural India old class divisions. Still rule local politics which could spell trouble for Narendra Modi in my elections, plus climate change student politics, a divide between two impressive school students. Stay with us for that. Well, you might recall Narendra Modi's landslide election victory five years ago. How to believe but twenty four nine huge landslide election victory Ahmadi. Now, we lived the BJP this is the Hindu nationalist party live them to power. This was the first Indian prime minister in thirty years to govern without a coalition any Hedda rare opportunity to enact market friendly reforms that had stalled under his predecessor Manmohan Singh now until relatively recently Modi's BJP was odds on favorite to be reelected. But such as the magic politics that Modi's chances of victory. And now fifty fifty says, my guest richer Shama is chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley investment management. And he's author of a terrific new book called democracy on the road at twenty five year journey through India as just out by penguin Random House richer. Welcome back to between the lines Gregory back with your own thing. What do you think Modi's? Reelection is no longer a sure thing I think that when I wrote the book, and he was coming across a very United opposition. You just mentioned about how you wanna landslide victory in two thousand fourteen but one very important statistic. From that election was that he only or his party only got thirty one percent of the total vote share in India, and he was able to win a majority of the seats because the parliamentary democracy is so fag minted in India that the opposition is quite divided and you get a disproportionate number of seats with even thirty percent of the vote. So what was changing over the Bosnia? Is that a lot of the opposition parties in India state by state were coming together to put up a United front against that removes? That's really what was changing and why at taught is fog ability or winning the election was now much more fifty fifty than sort of hundred percent probably than most bookies were giving him. I'd say. Euro even to ago now, the only thing which has changed, and this is the changing nature of politics and any country, especially in India is the last couple of weeks they've had this escalated tension between India and Pakistan, and that's sort of please into Modi's hand. So I would say that once again, the the momentum has shifted back in his favor. Just because of the very unexpected develop in that taking place over the past few weeks, the accidents of history we've had on this program. Several times of the last five years, Richard Soudan, undo my from the American Enterprise Institute, you know, and he said that in two thousand fourteen there was an ABC mood that is anybody, but congress this is the the left of center ruling party for so long in India's history. You don't really see an anti Mody y emerging. Then do you know, I think if election is not about that his base remains pretty much intact. But I said the big difference that the opposition is coming together in many states. I'm critical battleground states such as the most populous state of India with really two hundred million people in such critical states the opposition is coming together. And when they do that, then typically the the leading party tends to be in trouble. That's the history of Indian politics. So that to me is the big dynamic at currently. Yes. So in a way, you're saying that these elections in my they more likely to shape up as a series of state contests. It's not really a nationwide contest between Mody and congress is it. That's right know, that the outside world likes to think of it that way because the two names that sort of resonate most with the outside world. I I now in the Gumby dine in but it's important to member that booties. Put together the total vote share in. India is Bailey fifty percent five zero. And so the other half is about all these regional parties in India. And that's really what I've tried to bring out in my book, which that this is the story of many India's India's less a country that our continent like the European Union with many states Funk's practically functioning like countries. And I think that that is the story of India which gets lost in translation to the outside world often. Now, this new book of yours democracy on the road. It's the result of your travels through India following election campaigns, pretty much since the lighten awning ninety south of the last twenty years, and you Rauch quote in an era when democracy is said to be in retreat worldwide, it's thriving in India. Yeah. That's the curse of the fact that when I've traveled for these elections, I find it soon remarkable that despite only advantages that the incumbent
"india india" Discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House
"I think that's definitely a kind of bordering Zayed's is letting endear about China, I meant Tim Daly, the kind of fair of encirclement that dominates politics in this regional regional relations. And just as Pakistan is worried about being encircled by India. India is concerned about being encircled by China. And and they have that they've got kind of specialist. Think tank government funded which is basically exclusively to to look at China and military policy. But that also concerned I think about huge Chinese economic expansion in the area. There's the the China Pakistan economic corridor which goes which will connect China through Pakistan to to puzzle. The Persian see in the Middle East. And India is building a kind of rival trade that goes basically through Afghanistan from central Asia. And there's there's railings -iety not only about kind of being economically overtaken. But also that these bases. These kind of puts and big infrastructure projects that China is developing all over all over the world, really. But will ever South Asia and southeast Asia? There's railings -iety in India that that is kind of cover the military bases and military means I think it goes much much deeper than just the restructuring that we've seen recently, really interesting. I wonder Carl you mentioned Taiwan before what? Thinking of this sort of reshuffle. And how Washington this washing watching this as well? Well, Taiwan appears to be the salute target in this case, the idea I think it was just a couple of weeks ago that the Chinese one of the Chinese leaders made the claim that they would take Taiwan by any means necessary. And in terms of Washington, I don't this is interesting this these this reports are interesting in terms of the trade war as well. I think there is a necessity in Washington to to at this moment to cast China as one of the if not the primary geopolitical threat to the United States. And so this is this is very interesting.

Story from Breitbart victims of illegal alien crime used house speaker Nancy Pelosi's office Tuesday to evidence that she used walls as a barrier and it worked angel families. Went into Nancy Pelosi's office, Tuesday, asking for the speaker to meet with them and hear their pleas for a wall and border security and one of the angel momma said, quote, it's nice walls in here. All the way four walls in here. Her son Dominic Durden was killed by illegal alien, the lady asked the staff if she was to go through the secondary office door, which should be arrested a Pelosi staffer simply told dirt, and she would ask her not to go through and then dirt. And then told the staff we asked my son's killer not to and he still did it and Pelosi doesn't care about that. She wants to say, I wish the killers have our kids would have been held to the same standard when they had them in the first place, but they got treated different. And that's another thing that just grinds. My gear when they used to claim they were in the shadows. They're not in the shadows. There flaunting it. We are in the shadows. Now, very sad story. And she this lady amongst other angel. Moms went in to show that walls do work and that they keep people out one of the many stories one of the many anecdotal stories that you'll hear about the government shutdown and the angel. Moms who really are trying whatever means necessary to to be heard because it seems like if there's a cable network and they're sitting around a table with their fancy coffee mugs chuckling. You're not gonna hear anything about the angel moms. That's the sad. Very sad. Sad story shutdown continues. Here we are, you know, of course, in week four of all of this and Nancy Pelosi says the state of the union address that the President Trump spectrum to give Jenny twenty-ninth he should delay that because of the shutdown because of safety reasons, we haven't seen President Trump take the gloves off in a response yet. But we've pitched some. Ideas, and we had a Lanta greatly on last. And she says there are some other ideas and some very similar to what we pitched in some alternatives to going before the joint session of congress. And you bring up a note really he doesn't have to do this via television because it hasn't been around right ever since the beginning of the nation. He's required to go and show up and do it in front of the TV cameras. He can deliver it by letter. But there are some interesting alternatives. That might be compelling television viewer viewing. Yeah. Perhaps I'll I I think there's a lot of things out there that they can do to turn the tables on on Pelosi and the Democrats which you did this yesterday to grandstand into get headlines and to know try to put themselves in a certain light Tim remember last summer when we were going through the well right before the supreme court Justice nominee hearing. And remember it was like, well, if he if he gets on the court, it's gonna, you know, kill millions of people and catastrophic damage, I I love the way we exaggerate in media because I'm reading a story this morning that is the way humanity produces an eats food must radically change to avoid millions of death deaths. And catastrophic damage to the planet. Did you know that did you know that what you're eating is going to cause millions of deaths? First of all, it's an let's unpack all of this forest. First of all, let's let's step back. Let's not jump the gun too much here number of deaths, by the way, we we're we're doing update number of deaths caused by the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch, and the confirmation or I'll even say or the confirmation of Brett cavenaugh to the supreme court that death toll right now stands at zero. Right. All right. So go ahead. You're exactly right. Well, they say we need to cut half as much sugar and red meat intake. And twice as many vegetables, fruits and nuts. Three dozen researchers reaching this putting it in a medical journal journal, we are in a catastrophic situation. According to one of the co authors who is a professor at the university of London and policy lead for eat the eat commission. Yes, that's what it's called. It's a fifty page study. It says nearly a billion people go hungry right now and another two billion or eating too much of the wrong foods, and that causes epidemic of obesity, heart disease and diabetes. Unhealthy foods account for eleven million avoidable premature deaths every year, according to the global disease burden report. Same time the global food system is the single largest emitter of see. This is it they don't give a you know, what about if it causes heart disease or diabetes or that. It's it's causing greenhouse gases. The biggest driver of biodiversity loss. And the main calls of deadly algae blooms along coast and inland. Waterways agriculture which is transformed nearly half of the planet land surface also uses up to seventy percent of the global fresh water supply. According to this study. Oh boy. So there you go what you're eating not only killing yourself you killing everybody else. So your fault. I can't disagree that sugars killer. I mean, it's, but I'm not gonna take it out to it has a global impact. I, you know, I think I think a lot of people the way I feel about sugar, and look I love it as much as everybody else, and I know the effects that it can have on the human body, but to say because you're consuming sugar 'cause you're consuming right mate? And that's what it comes down to. They don't care about. Well, it's causing a health crisis. Well, it's causing greenhouse gases to go up. It's it's contributing to global warming. We're not saying everyone has to eat in the same way Lang wrote, but broadly, especially in the rich world, so see just the United States needs to cut this out everybody else. Okay. If you live in in in wherever you know, the middle of nowhere in in some of the small foreign country. You're okay. But broadly, especially in the rich. World. It means a reduction of meat and dairy and a major increase in plant consumption. I don't know about you. I like a little plant consumption with my mate, I like a steak and a big salad. There. In such a long time. I like big salad with a hamburger. Alec some spinach. Let's. It lists of most polluted cities, by particular matter concentration. Let's look at this from Wikipedia air-quality database documented by the World Health Organization. Let's look at the countries. You know, what we got a couple of minutes here. Let's look at the top fifty. All right. A instances where the particular matter. Was awful. And of course, polluting. And of course, you know, that leads to global warming, right? Here we go you ready. Forced buckle up. Right. Stop. Stopped me when you hear the US aren't here we go starting one.

But can't crack the top fifty there at fifty one. But this is over the last few years, the most polluted. Then China dominates all the way down to. At least two fifty. Then you see Chile at two fifty ran to sixty five maybe that's some of the nuclear waste. I don't know. Vietnam to seventy nine you know, other than China. I US isn't on here. Now, China's mentioned in this report is being one of those areas that needs to focus on this the diet that is recommended Tim. The diet is recommended would give you a quarter of an ounce not even announce a quarter of an ounce of red meat per day. Just think about it. When you go to McDonalds order, a quarter Pounder with cheese. That's a quarter of a pound not a quarter of an ounce. So what does that like a bite of a of a hamburger Patty a bite of steak? It says for most rich nations in many emerging ones such as China in Brazil, this would represent a drastic five to ten fold reduction beef being the main culprit, not only do cattle pass massive quantities of planet. Warming, methane Cal farts, that's doing this. Okay. You know, because he's stick a bunch cows out in the field, and they eat and they chew their cod. And then they put then that's what's killing us. Of natural grass, then but farmers are also taking huge swaths of carbon absorbing forests mostly in Brazil. Cutting them down every year to make room for them. So they're cutting them down to make more pasture him supposedly in this. For climate. We know that coal is the low hanging fruit the dirtiest of fossil fuels on the food side, the equivalent is grain fed beef. So today, if you ride now, you know, through the county, maybe outlying areas of Memphis, and you go down by drive by a pasture. Not some cows out there curse those cows killing you.

And according to these people that spoken to Bloomberg today. These Asian officials at deal has been done which allow some Iranian oh to keep on flowing into the global. And that could ease concerns about say supply crunch in crew. Brent crude dropped by around fourteen percents over the course of the last month on signs, the other OPEC producers will keep on pumping to offset any supply gap. But this is an interesting move, which is if true coming from the US ahead of the midterm elections may or may not be a factor, but this should help to keep a cap on oil prices.

So we'll let's say one f on the bottom say I don't know a hundred blocks and then if it were cube, you do one hundred times one hundred times one hundred, which would be a one with six, which is a million.

News twenty four hours a day on, Aaron a tick tock on Twitter powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and. Analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries in San Francisco I'm Ed Baxter this is Bloomberg Doug all right at twenty past the hour here on daybreak Asia let's get back to our conversation with. Eric Moffett portfolio. Manager t. Rowe price international he joins us from our studios in Hong Kong so we've got, a Jay meeting that will react up pretty soon and a fed meeting later in the week arguably the o., j.'s the bigger deal since most expect the fed not to do anything. What happens if they do begin to tweak the yield curve management even slightly what are we like to see play out. In the market well I invest in the, Asia extra pan region so I don't spend much time thinking about the b. o. j. but broadly. The spectre of rising rates could be, a headwind, for Asia what what's really special about, the time we're in today is we have high real rates in Asia so even as the fed hikes rates many the central banks at. Here are still. In a position where. They can. Cut them however if inflation picks up central banks. Here in Asia are forced to raise rates that's likely to slow growth down so. I think that could potentially be one of the. Biggest headwinds this year I wanted, to ask you about. The text by Eric because of course we have seen that near three, hundred billion. Dollars wiped off in the. US take area there's been a few broker downgrades in the tech space here I just made sent ASA tech we. Had Samsung's earnings coming through a little bit weaker than expected as well in Asia g think that it is time for a bit of a, pullback in the tech space well I think there are two important buckets there's the internet. Bucket and then there's the smartphone bucket and in the internet bucket companies here? In Asia are broadly you know very they Ryan with the? Stories, like Google Facebook but there many years behind, and so I think we still have many years of growth to go and so it's really questioning what you're willing to pay for that. Growth in terms of the smartphone supply chain stocks it's true that smartphone growth is slowing down and. That memory cycles long in the tooth, but, it's also very important to note that all these stocks look very very cheap I. Think, expectations are low and so some of the bad news we're seeing out there is really already reflected in a. Lot of the prices what about some of the gaming companies and any major Ten cents is exposed to gaming I, mean in. The last week Electronic Arts. Gave this forecast for disappointing earnings in that cloud continues to kind of hang over the group activision in the US. During the last session was down three to half percent A lot of the. Gaming companies in the United States are you can think of them as sort of movie studio so they. Have to come out with hits. The product cycles can. Be lumpy ten cents special in that in many ways it's more a movie. Theater company they can source the hits from various gain makers. And whether or not a hit comes out and win it's launched can make earning slumpy. I think at present there've been some delays and, approvals for, various games to be launched in China and so that may create, some weakness later in the year but it, does nothing to undermine the strength of this business, and the long, term potential, and I think particularly when you. Think of games you know historically, that just individuals playing games on the mobile phones on consoles but a very growing part of the stories the east sports market where folks are getting together having big competitions their sponsorships I, think that's really going to be the next leg of growth for this, industry over the next ten years looking more broadly at. Asia we have been saying. You know a little bit of a pullback of late but. There are, some markets that are doing very well I think of India, for example which continues to hit record, highs day after day where do, you see some good value in Asia well so I don't see it in India India's one of the most expensive. In loved markets in Asia and I think we have some risk going to next year with politics higher oil prices is, bad for India so that's not. Where I'd find a lot of good opportunities today today I find some of the best opportunities in China's. A-share market the domestic stockmarket now. You recall this as. A market driven by retail investors who tend to get really excited when things. Are good panic when things are bad it's a very much. Momentum market and we've had the market selloff recently the fundamentals for the kind of steady. Blue chip companies we look at our fantastic and, so I, think that's that's the best hunting ground today broadly Frazier it's important, to note that the valuation for Asia ex, Japan the gap between, that valuation and say the, valuation in the, United States Market is about as wide as. It's ever, been so you have markets out here that are much cheaper, than the United States with better growth, and so we think that's attractive All right Eric great to have you, on thanks so much for coming into Hong Kong studio Eric Moffett portfolio.
