"Are certainly the most advanced in the world in terms of the digitalization of retail finance. I think China's posing to reflect as to whether it has from a financial stability perspective, the right weavers to control what would just simply be the aggregation of individual consumers holding the same thing at the same time. Douglas Flynn there the standard Life Aberdeen chairman on China much more on that in just a moment from New York City this morning, Good morning alongside some King, at least for a promise son, Jonathan Farrow for our audience Worldwide life on Bloomberg TV and radio. This is Bloomberg surveillance, with about one hour and 12 minutes to go until the opening bell. His a story for the equity market out performance on the NASDAQ, The S and P 500 just about positive up five on the S and P a little more than 1/10 of 1% gain their government to the Fed on Wednesday. Perhaps a bit flatter, yield a little bit lower on a 10 year down 2 to 1.652%. We will get to Euro story In just a moment. I'm fascinated by what's happening in Europe now. For all the wrong reasons on the vaccine from euro, Taliban 21 50 to come again about 1/10 of 1% there, Tom, slightly weaker Europe. I haven't seen your Oh young breakdown. What you do, folks. Did you take up the dollar and you look at the euro as it relates to the yen and it really hasn't broken down strong yen? Yes. So that would be the litmus paper. I do want to mention folks, This is an incredibly rich and busy earnings week as well. Full coverage for you on radio. And television is John mentioned China's We heard President Xi at the double's agenda. We now speak to truly an authority on this. George Magnus. Is it Oxford University's China Center? We're thrilled you could join us after his wonderful hugely Hugely readable effort. Red flags George Magnus thrilled to have you on this day where the leader of China speaks. What did he not say? He's very good. It's saying that the appropriate things. What did he not speak of? Well, I only heard kind of brief snippets of his address. I mean, what do you what? He didn't say? Actually, of course other things that you would never expect him to say which, of course, are You know the nuances about China's economic recovery. I mean, he does talk about, you know, we must have a Cold War mentality, which he didn't say he was partially responsible for injecting into the global system. Hey did say that the coupling leads to division, which is obviously a pointed remark of the United States not saying that Actually, China has been doing selective decoupling for years on D did say that open Listen inclusive, Mr really important, which is something that he didn't say China doesn't really practice. So you know, there's a lot of the things that he said that are the opposite of actually what actually takes place in the country in the country. And George, This is the big question, isn't it? What can the incoming Administration do to actually change the behavior of China, getting them to say the right things on the international stage at the World Economic Forum. That's one thing getting them to act differently is another. Do you expect to change in approach from the new administration in the United States? Expect to change it tone, you know, but not really a change of substance tonight. Maybe, you know the we've seen enough and heard enough already, even though it's only like a week old, not even the administration of the appointees who are in key positions on but I don't really hear our deal or sense any marked change of direction, So I think it would be Unusual given what we know about the individuals concerned if there wasn't a change of tone and certainly strengthening alliances, whether that's with Europe or with the quad, so Australia, Japan and India much stronger overtures towards Endo Pacific countries. I mean, these kinds of things I think will be forthcoming. And I think that is something which the Chinese, actually, we're probably fearful off. Why they probably didn't want him elected, but but I think that's that's where I think sort of the rubber is going to meet the road. Proverbially is sort of a more united kind of front amongst countries to confront China on very, very important issues, but not necessarily on terrorists, which were never really going to be kind of change anything. Meanwhile, financial markets have been voting between the US and China and opting for China. There was data out of the U. N saying that China overtook the United States for the first time is the world's top destination for new foreign direct investment this past year, and this has been ongoing with a huge shift Ah financial firms trying to expand and China despite some of these ongoing tensions between the U. S on China, Do you think that this money is well founded in terms of its bed on the Chinese economy, going forward based It's pre eminence and how it has recovered from the pandemic, versus, say, the U. S and Europe. Lisa, you know, it's like so many things is there's so much nuanced involved. I mean, I'm not saying that every company that puts money to work in China is he knows kind of throwing it down the drain, but actually, we also have to recognize. You know, there's a lot of self serving money that's going into China and justify it on the basis of being there for that reason. I think that you know, the the essence of the kind of the the U. N report will be on tap reports. You refer to me. Oh, I mean, it's not, you know. I mean, the world is basically kind of imploded because of the pandemic Foreign direct investment ground to a halt. China managed to to its credit, too, with draconian measures to suppress cove it on do allow its economy to come back, You know reasonably well during the last part of 2020 on be FBI flows going into China went up by 4% there are talking about Huge kind of amount, but, yeah, I mean, you know, I mean, I do think credit where Credit's too. I mean, they certainly managed to achieve accomplish something with their economy, which the rest of us Obviously you're looking at slightly green, intentional, then me, But you know, in the fullness of time, one imagines when we get on top of our own panda problems, everything they catch up will become quite apparent. Chose quite scan chops. Please come back soon. So much to talk about. Author of Red Flags. George Magnus Oxford University, China sent a research associate Tom the World Economic Forum. Even I've discussed this every 12 months whether that forum has become totally redundant. Find amazing over the weekend class swab was in the press talking about not inviting the former president Donald Trump back to the forum. At the same time, this reports the President Putin can address the forum. And the President Xi Jinping gets to address the forum this morning. Leader of a country this country, the United States and the outgoing administration accused of genocide just a couple of weeks ago, Tom so get your head around now. The World Economic Forum, the leader of the country to the United States of America, the outgoing administration accused of genocide. Gets to address the World Economic Forum. The former president, the United States, according to Class Robin the press on we'll wait to see the reconfirms Those comments is hesitant about inviting back a former U. S president. Well, that's different than inviting back versus speaking. I mean, I've seen former prime ministers there in many others as well. To invite Mr Trump back seems to make common sense. But the tradition is that the sitting officials Are the ones that speak whether it's Mr Sarkozy years ago. And of course, the gentleman you mentioned you course they I'm sure would want to hear from President Biden as well. And I think anyone that addresses the forum, Tom, anyone that gets that stage should face the questioning from a free press. We've never seen that hole if we never seen that shouldn't get. That's a sensitive topic. There shouldn't get this. Maybe you shouldn't get the megaphone..

I'm Ed Baxter, This is number Paul. All right. Thanks very much. It's guest for the half hour is Rob Mumford, his investment manager at GAM Investments and Rob, I know you'd see 2021 being a volatile year. I'm wondering if you have taken profits anywhere. And the way you're looking for opportunities. How? How you're planning to play this. Hi, Paul. Yes, we have actually so fast start to the year, so the index stages about 8%. And some some areas, the most delicate extended. We've been training a little bit some of the upstream technology companies on rotating into some blackouts. So mid and downstream as you were positive across the chain and technology this year, you could you could get peace evaluations decent growth. Both in the schematics, but also outside so We've been buying component. Makers exposed to five key very instance in the also an industrial covering semi's S o the range of interesting, interesting investments out there, but we continue to build. We've been trimming some of the Hypergrowth thematic areas They continue to do well, but My baby has pretty set up here for some of them. Yeah, I would imagine in particularly, you know, as you pointed out, I mean some of the hardware stocks some of the semiconductor shares, although today interestingly Taiwan semi is Is showing a little bit of weakness here. It's kind of curious, but geographically, do you want to be more focused on places like South Korea like Taiwan, or are you wanting to be a little bit more exposed to as Ian? It started. He was definitely focused on North Asia. So much better virus progression on some of the strong fanatics were coming through the beginning of the year on go there is underway as Yan Except India. Two degree where India you are saying in general she better but evaluations across the industrial cyclical area there little expensive also in some of the some of dramatics, but Yeah. No, thank you focused with fairly neutral China on underway, as you know, South Asia in general part from India. In terms of leg odds and ends cyclicals. How do you like the look of travel in casinos? Because the virus is derailed optimism around those sectors a few times now, If you're anticipating a rally there, do you need to also expect a bit of pain and some setbacks. I don't think that strike Chili did. There's the new, strange or just the outbreaks have seen across the region. China, including with with the outbreaks around her days. Those stocks have taken a bit of a knock against the index up almost 10%. Number of these names of down 55 to consent. But they clearly is opportunity here in generally index there number of doctor actually trading it a trough at JSC lows, including those hospitality names. There is the opportunity. I mean, even in the U. S. Has been slow to roll on the vaccine. Head of the CDC, talking about normalization by autumn markets typically, look ahead. Um, you know, working from home stocks about another massive run early part of this year. Clearly the relative value and relish the opportunity. Medium term is in these names. So, yeah, that they're a couple we like, particularly at this level of money off very slowly edging into them. Okay, So we just want to get your thoughts on that yields as well. We've seen them creeping up recently. How much further? You think this train has got to go? Sensing, isn't it? So we've seen normal rates a job, but inflation adjusted rates pretty steady so that the implied inflation rate has been edging up on was quite sharp. Over four. Cute leveled up there now. Um, middle of January, couple of state governor's coming out with slightly more hawkish commentary about potential normalization. Um, but since then off to subdue the together himself come out to say no passel support here for some time. I think that net you will see a gradual rise in nominal rights on Don't be interesting to see how quickly real rights come out. This is important. I mean, this is hyper growth valuations are really supported by these very level or significant negative real rates. On. If you do see those rights, a job, that segment of the market will come under pressure current on the current pace, a dimension, particularly with the recent virus outbreak. Think normalization put put, probably being pushed back for the better progression. You might have had a slightly more hawkish Fed, said commentary on the 28th of that meeting coming up on the 28. I think, given the given the pace of rollout and the current Situation. I think you'll see the comments just super super sort of rate supporters s so don't expect any huge movement near term. But that.

We've got a weaker yen and stability in the offshore Chinese who wanted 6 49 61. Let's get an update on global news. Next at Baxter's in the Bloomberg 9 16 years from Ed. All right, thank you Dug a Hong Kong is lifted his first lockdown, which affected thousands of people. Over the weekend, the government completed testing And to Kahlan District 7000 tests with just 13 positive results. UK vaccination drive Expanding, officials say six million vaccinations to date the death toll is nearing 100,000. Mind Administration will continue to restrict travel to the U.

U. S aircraft carrier group is entered the South China Sea to promote Freedom of the seas. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he is open to meeting with China's President Xi Jinping, but only if it is no conditions, meaning all subjects can be broached and around the table. He also cites a slow turn in China relations. President Joe Biden's chief of staff, Ron Clain, on NBC says the federal government is going to take over the distribution. The vaccine says as part of the plan was not existent in the previous administration and 11 Chinese gold mine workers trapped for two weeks have been brought up safely. To the surface. That's 11. Hundreds of rescue workers and officials applauded and stood at attention as they came up one by one and baskets. 10. Others reported this still be unaccounted for. In San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg. Juliet. Thank you so much. And let's get to our guest. Now. Massimiliano Boundary is founder and C E. O s GMC Capital and joins us from Singapore always great to chat to you, Max. So we're starting out this new year were narrow nearly at the end of January. There's still certainly seems to be a lot of appetite for risk, particularly as we focus on the vaccine. Roll out a question, though, that we're asking guests is that Risk s. It's getting a little bit too complacent about this rollout because there still could be bumps ahead. Well, yes, Absolutely. If you look at valuations, they're definitely stretched. But obviously they are stretched for reasons they're stretched for the fact that we've never seen such monetary and fiscal easing and accommodative stance is any time in the past. Really on. Yes, The vaccine is definitely good news, but we still have to see exactly how effective and how quickly can be rolled out. One of the main point is also whether it will prove effective also against the difference. Friends of the virus that seems to be appearing, but we like to be relatively optimistic about that. We do think that especially with the Binders Administration lot authority will now be given with respect to providing vaccinations as quickly as possible. Um, before, yes, valuations are high. But again, there's a reason behind it before we think that, as of now the rally could keep going. I've got this amidst of the Fed may sing this week to how do you think that the committee is going to balance somewhat dim a short term economic outlook As we look at potential concerns versus the brighter, longer term one and that is that we will get through this and we will see economic growth return. Well, the first now is going to try to minimize any potential changes to their message. The four will keep saying that they're here and they're ready to act again. Should anything happen out off what is expected with respect to potential for the fall out? What a vaccine or potential bumps in the growth In the short term, they will not try to focus too much on the longer term, because if they do found a bit off more positive and potentially more vocational than that is, of course, going to be scaring markets before for the moment, the massive will remain focused on we're here to act if necessary. Um, we think we're on the right fast. We're still not through the woods. On that message is likely going to be continuing and just should longer term interest rates keep spiking, and the increased much further from here should inflation expectations. Get out of him? Then they have to adjust their message before the moment we don't think much is going to change. Lot of endings coming out this week. What is your outlook, particularly as we still see a lot of sectors of the economy struggling. Well, technology is going to continue doing very well. Obviously, a lot of that is already priced in. But results are likely to continue being strong. Um, the sectors which are likely have been more impacted by the virus. So we're talking. Of course travel. We're talking someone leisure. Um, a lot off the negative news. This potential ready priced in but expect numbers to look very bad. We feel a bright spot is likely to come from the luxury stocks because luxury names have bean have been very strong. And if you've seen everything that has been with the specter of the shopping over the last few months and holiday season that has been very strong, So we expect the luxury names to post great numbers and potentially have a further jump up in valuations. You're also looking at being overweight, Global emerging markets which particular market so you're looking at here? You have to be extremely selective in emerging markets we like, especially Latam economies. So Mexico being one of the main ones for global investors, that can take a little bit more of an additional risk. We like Brazil is well, and the main reasons are pretty clear. So we expect that depreciations to continue we expect on the Bidens presidency. We expect that the message is coming out from the White House to be different with respect to Trump, which was probably always focusing on negative headlines will second specially to Mexico and at the same time for Mexico..

The Strategic Value Of Rare Earths
"Hey cardiff parallel boy cough. Welcome back here. You've been to las vegas where you're obviously playing the slot machines and you're at the craps tables right. I wish i wish. I was closer to the blasio. But i was actually about an hour outside of las vegas in the desert. Oh and did you bring us anything back from the middle of the desert. I always have at present for you cardiff. this time. I brought you some pretty cool tape. Listen to this one. Nothing warms my heart like the sound of an explosion music to an economy nerds ears. So that is the sound of a blast at the mountain. Pass mine. This site in california cardiff. It's the only place in the us where we mind rare earths and we really really need these things. So if we're looking across the pit like everything in the very bottom bit of the existing bottom is all high-grade or at this time. So that's robbi roy. And he's talking to cnn international. He's the mine manager at mountain pass. He's showing our team. This huge open. Mind pit just packed. He says with these rare earth elements beautiful sites. See he says. This is the busiest. He's ever seated at mountain pass and cardiff one of the reasons. It's so impressive to see this. Bustling busy mine is that just two years ago. This mind was totally shut at that. Point china really take over this strategic industry. Okay that's fascinating in of itself. But i actually think we should step back for a minute and explain a little bit more. About what rare earths are so everyone go back to high school chemistry for just a moment just for a second. I had a great chemistry teacher. Mr goodman rare. Earths are of seventeen elements that appear on the periodic table and they are an essential ingredient in making like super strong super. Small magnets are used in a lot of electronics and by the military despite the name they are really not all that rare they naturally occur in a lot of places but the process to mine them labor intensive and it can be environmentally destructive. It can create lots of pollution and can even involve radioactive waste china. They put a lot of effort into building the mining and processing facilities for these rare earths and without the same environmental and labor standards that we have in the us. So china can produce earth's very cheaply and china started to actually dominate the industry. And in fact from about twenty fourteen to twenty seventeen the us imported eighty percent of its supply of rare earths from china as the relationship between the us and china started to get tense. The trade war china's state media. They basically made a thinly veiled threat. They implied that rare. Earths could be used as a weapon. In the trade war china could restrict exports basically cut off the flow of these elements to the us china's president xi jinping. He just happened to make a personal visit to a production facility. That made these products. I was just in the neighborhood and there were the rare earths over there. I thought i go check out just in case a camera sees him on on the other side of me right. Yeah and as a trade war has become nastier and nastier. This idea that china could restrict rare earth exports to the us it has spooks and people especially in washington. Because this is. The world has become more dependent on high tech electronics. It has also become more dependent on these elements on rare earths. This has focused a lot of attention on the mine. I went to mountain pass. It has actually been in operation since the nineteen fifties back then it produced europian which makes the red color in very early televisions. Yeah and the previous owner invested more than a billion dollars on a new environmentally friendly facility back in two thousand fifteen just as the rare earths price collapsed and so the company just went out of business in the minds shut and there was nowhere in the us producing these elements. Now the new owner of the mine mp materials they have spent two years rebuilding it and they say that they now produce about ten percent of the world's supply of rare earths. If there's going to be an american industry it's going to be led by us we it. That's james the ten ski on cnn. International he's the chairman of m. p. materials. He wants to create an alternative supply chain to china. But he's got a problem while he can dig these things out of the ground. He can't process them in the us. Everything needs to go back to china. In fact a chinese processor owns a ten percent non-voting stake in mp materials. Mountain pass produces bags and bags of this rare. Earths concentrate basically a brown dust. That got all over my shoes when i was there. Then it all gets into china because there isn't a processing plant anywhere in this country that turns rare earths into the products that companies want to buy next year n. p. materials. They plan to reopen the processing plant at mountain pass. And this way they can make processed rare earths to sell directly to global companies without going through china and the frankly there were a lot of people who who doubted that we can make this work and so we felt an extrovert and anna duty. And so we've had a sense of urgency from the very beginning. But i would say that. There's definitely been a heightened sense of awareness of what we're up to. When china started making its veiled threats some people questioned if the us to nationalize the rare earths industry to take it over but the experts. We talked to don't really think so. And they point to what is going on at mountain pass as proof that the market is already correcting for china's near-monopoly now that there's increased demand for rare earths and pressure by companies for sources that are more diverse and environmentally friendly suppliers. Outside of china are starting to grow and restricting earth exports. It's not a move. China's gonna make lately because it would hurt chinese businesses a lot of the rare earths they find their way into things that are manufactured inside china lake mobile phones to really completely cut the us off. China would have to tell chinese businesses to stop selling to the united states processed rare earths and rare earth magnets and all the electronics that use them.

Trump slams global climate agreement Biden intends to rejoin
"Donald trump rallied against the paris climate accord on sunday telling world leaders at a virtual summit that the agreement was designed to cripple the us economy. Not save the planet to protect american workers. I withdrew the united states from the unfair and one sided paris. Climate accord a very unfair act for the united states. Trump said video from the white house to the group of twenty summit hosted by saudi arabia. He's comments came during a discussion among the world's largest economies on safeguarding. The earth president-elect. Joe biden who takes office in january has said he will rejoin the global pact that the us helped forge five years ago trump contended. The international accord was not designed to save the environment. It was designed to kill the american economy. It is not clear whether trump has even read the paris. Climate accord trump. Who has worked to undo. Most of president barack obama's efforts to fight climate change said that since withdrawing from the climate agreement the us has reduced carbon emissions more than any nation. That is true but it's not that remarkable with its giant economy. The us has far more roar emissions of climate damaging carbon dioxide to cut than any other country except china a more telling measure of progress in various countries is to look at what percentage of emissions country has cut since two thousand five. The united states hasn't been even in the top ten. In percentage of greenhouse gas emission reductions more than one hundred and eighteen nations have ratified the accord which aims to keep the increase in average temperatures worldwide well below two degrees celsius and ideally no more than one point five degrees compared with pre industrial levels scientists. Say that any rise beyond two degrees celsius could have a devastating impact on large parts of the world raising sea levels stoking tropical storms and worsening droughts and floods. The us formally exited the paris pact on november fourth. On saturday the us formally left the open skies treaty which permits thirty plus nations to conduct unarmed observation. Flights over each other's territory. Those overflights set up decades ago to promote trust and avert conflict during the discussions at the climate session.

The International Reaction To Joe Biden's Win
"Farm minister who has now tweeted. Congratulations joe biden. On your spectacular. Victory joined with other nations. Latest around the world congratulating congratulate and on behalf of new zealand. Vicky nice including lights. I want to congratulate president-elect buydell and vice president-elect harris. us allies around. The world have moved quickly to congratulate president. Joe biden vice president-elect kamala harris on their win even as president trump still refuses to concede the election for countries like canada france and germany. Biden's victory could signal a return to cooperation on alliances like nato and treaties including the paris climate agreement but the prospect of a biden administration seems less promising to more authoritarian leaders with whom president trump ford strong relationships during his time in office including north korea's leader kim jong un brazilian president jair bolsonaro chinese president. Xi jinping who so far have all refrained from publicly congratulating biden and harris. Joining me now is yes means. Sirhan london base staff writer at the atlantic. Thanks for joining us again. As mean thanks for having me also with us. Clouds ladas professor of history and international affairs at the university of north carolina. chapel hill. Klaus good to have you with us. Thank you hello. How are you doing all right. We are in very interesting political moment right now. The president trump has refused to concede and yet president-elect biden is moving forward and the world is noticing clouds. How would you describe the scope. So far of the international reaction to biden's victory well on the whole thing that has been a lot of rejoicing a lot of applause for biden. I think people are hugely relieved that the trump administration will not have a second term and most people are most leaders in in europe and asia and of people in that country's overjoyed. I six they were really getting fed up for the trump administration. It was too dramatic too. Chaotic to unpredictable and people are relieved to see a new administration. I cost you said the administration was dramatic and unpredictable. And i think many americans would agree with you but it continues to be dramatic and somewhat unpredictable. Given the fact that the trump administration is now calling for recounts and investigations into what they allege voter. Inconsistencies are world leaders looking at that and saying anything about that. The fact that they're still Has not been a concession from president trump. Well del shaking their hands. Most of them are shaking the hats but the key for that sorts to themselves because it is no point to interfere in businesses seen as domestic american politics very few people at least very few democratic leaders have any understanding for what is going on in washington. It seems to be pretty obvious that the was of a free and walls not done in a fraudulent way at all and over. Four million people can vote for biden Rather than for trump's majority will lots of for millions of popular vote. He won miss. Four million people and the people have accepted. That biden is president-elect. And booby the new president but they are. You know wondering what's going on in washington but hardly anyone is actually surprised. At the trump administration would embark on such a course of action because that fits in with what is administration was like chaotic dramatic unpredictable and quite irrational to some extent mean given what klaus just laid out there in terms of the continued reaction to the world leaders at least us allies. Saying you know okay. We'll watch what's happening and see how this all plays out. How much of the reaction you think is excitement about biden himself versus relief about removing president trump from office. It's a great question. I mean it's worth noting An and i thought can of clauses overview spot on that you know for a lot of world biden is a very familiar character He certainly not new to the world stage. I think it was in. Benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime ministers congratulations that he noted that he's known biden for forty years. And i think a lot of world leaders know biden. So it's i. I think probably if i had to guess my assessment would be that it's probably the latter. I think a lot of i think a lot of the protests you are seeing in the us in the days after the result was finally announced was probably fell at least to me is an american observing from afar like a lot more relief than necessarily you know excitement. This isn't to say that you know. Folks don't like biden or unexcited to see him at the helm on his set a recognizable figure. But i think the world generally kind of just took a big sigh of relief that you know here returns a. Us option that recognizes. The us is traditional role in the world and will hopefully be kind of retaking that spot on the international stage. And yasmin. you are in london. Where prime minister. Boris johnson has had a strong relationship with president trump. How do you think this relationship between the us and the uk will evolve under a biden administration. It's a really good question. There's certainly been a lot of chatter about that very thing here kind of leading up to the us election and now after that we knew the result i think there is some conjecture that you know obviously as you just said President trump and prime minister. Johnson had a pretty good relationship. I think a lot of that stemmed from the fact that president trump was quite a big supporter of brexit. And you know. I think kind of quite appreciated the sort of comparisons between him and johnson superficial is some of the may be particularly. I think he quite liked references to johnson. As britain trump some remembering correctly and there has been some talk about some potential tensions between biden administration and johnson's downing street. I'm particularly with regard to brexit. Biden has been very clear about his support for the good friday agreement and opposing anything that would undermine it. And i think there's also some talk about how you know johnson before he was prime minister had made some comments with regard to president obama's support for britain staying in the eu. Where i think he made comments about obama's kenyan ancestry in how he had an ancestral dislike of the british empire so these are no doubt comments that administration would probably remember well. But i think it's worth noting that you know. These are things. I do not think are going to shake up the uk us relationship. In a major way. I think there's a lot more that And biden share particularly with regard to issues like climate change like the iran deal and. Yeah i mean. I think more broadly i would expect pretty good. Relations between the us and the uk going forward While it's certainly true. That trump and johnson had had a decent relationship I think you know the uk is is certainly a country that would see its relationship with the us being important irrespective of who's empower claus does not same theory hold true for other. You leaders like angela. Merkel for example and wilma call who themselves had troubled relationships with president trump. And who i can imagine so far are somewhat relieved to see this New administration elect. Yeah the But regarding johnson outside that johnson dossier a little insecure. He was the first international leader. I believe who fold up biden and congratulate him. They said i think that shows the level of insecurity and also abidance irish background. Bill make him wonder how. how how much you consult poured onto the united states in the future and the united vendor the united kingdom needs a trade. Deal the us. And i think he is for it. You know i think he would probably have seen a second trump administration as being more helpful regarding angela merkel and other european leaders. They certainly were relieved. Undiplomatic led a very bad relationship with trump or with raza. Put it the other way. Round a macro tried in various locations to make overtures to trump it was trump really rejected it who couldn't really in the end stand. Angela merkel nothing kid. He had a problem with female leaders. You had the problem as lead us. Who voted much more open to immigration and to do something about asylum people who were looking for asylum in their countries and he could understand and he also criticised the eu including germany for its huge trade deficit of us united states or rather to the united states of course had trade deficit busy you and he almost criticized the eu and it's trade policies. As much as he did china he called the eu. Actually a foe. Which is you know really surprising that you consider your most longest standing allies in the world that you suddenly regard them. As foes at least in trade relations. So underline michael and the german establishment as well as the french and other foreign policies tablets in europe are usually relieved that they see the end of the trump administration and us yes-men just that biden has a very good reputation. He is regarded to be quite honest as perhaps a little too old for the job but on the other hand is a centrist is not extreme is on the last notes of right people know him they a appreciate his his personality is a people person you some would say. Here's a backslapping sort of politician but much more extrovert much. More outgoing and much more ready to compromise than Trump was so all that shouting at nato summits or g seven summits all that Very bad atmosphere attention. The you know the almost talk about to break up of nato and talk about that trump wanted to undermine the quesion of political union of the european union all that will be a thing of the past because by and his administration can be expected to be very constructive to what nate to enter to you however having said that may the last sort biden will also insist on the european spending more money on their defense efforts so he will not be softer regarding nate and regarding the defense efforts of the europeans and here europe really needs to do something because that is an old complaint which goes back to the obama administration and before that wasn't actually unique to the trump administration. And the you know that they are very reluctant to spend more on defense. But i think a practice the president biden will actually be more successful in persuading them at. That would be the right thing to do as you mentioned. Joe biden's age. And i think that that's something that we must talk about because if something happens to joe biden we could be looking at a president kamala harris. And i'm wondering this is something that came up yesterday in our conversation about The role that black women played in american democracy in electing joe biden. We've seen kamala harris the first woman of color to ever sit in that role that i wonder how she will be received by world leaders. Yasmine your thoughts on that yet. It's a good question. I mean i think you know. Obviously that history-making of of her being elected the first female of vice president of colors obviously huge certainly noteworthy among a lot of the congratulations. that were received. I think it was prime minister. Narendra modi of india who actually dedicated an entire tweet just tacoma harris herself And i think the reason for that is is obvious. Obviously her indian heritage. He he sees that is is an opportunity to further strengthen the relationship between india and the us. but yeah. i mean. I don't know i would anticipate We as you say. Given president-elect biden's age that kamala harris could have a more hands on role than previous vice presidents that we've seen In in for that reason we may find that world leaders will quickly get to know come harris in a way that perhaps they didn't get to know vice presidents of the past and it seems just based on the comments that we've seen uncle mirko also an a made a comment about looking forward to meeting a kamala harris that we could expect that you know the world will be paying attention to both of them very much. Not just biden klaus What's been the reaction From china and president xi jinping so far there hasn't been much of a reaction. Xi jinping has kept quiet. We don't quite know why this speculation that perhaps xi jinping want antagonize the trump administration while it is still in office. The course and ten weeks you can do a lot of arm. And he knows that relations between china and the united states are difficult as they are that will continue to be difficult under the biden administration. So he's keeping a low profile on the social media in china have however been lots of comments. Some people really regretful that Trump is leaving because it made the united states weaker. It created a vacuum in international affairs which was appreciated by some observers in china as us believe you know it is much better to have a more stable more predictable government even if that government is perhaps more strategic in its relations with china. But they appreciate that proper possible predictability and international affairs so essentially. It's difficult to say what the leadership actually things and we will have to wait until eventually shipping and The foreign ministry in beijing will come out with a statement but they will do so nothing at the latest one set to mastic insecurity about the election. Outcome has been resolved than they of course will congratulate her joe biden and kabila harris now of course Clouds one country that we know has been watching the disarray In the united states or at least the tension in the united states has been russia. What have we heard if anything from vladimir putin and or his administration so far the gun russia's keeping a low profile putin hasn't congratulated i them and He is keeping quiet. Does not much coming out of russia but the they of course are disappointed. That trump did not win the second term. And there's been talk about disinformation campaigns. Not quite as much as two sixteen but russia did its bid to perhaps enable second trump victory and trump. However the to be quite. Frank hasn't been soft on russia. The administration perhaps not the president. Personally who always had such soft spot for putin and very confidential talks with him and no one really knows. What when on doing these talks but when you look at his policy his administration's policies towards a russia that wasn't soft all imposed over forty times a new sanctions on russia. So he the administration actually hasn't been soft on putin. But i believe that russia fears of fields that the unpredictability and the chaos and the. Let's say less focused way. of the trump administration than what could you can normally expect from an american administration that that in the end helped a russia that often the president Closed both ice and that influenced also of foreign policy. Make us in his administration like the state department. Yes maine another Interesting figure here is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who has been a very close ally of president trump And that even translated into votes here. In the united states for the president from certain jewish orthodox communities. He congratulated joe biden and comma harris this past weekend. What do you expect to see from. Benjamin netanyahu in the near term when it comes to us. Israeli relations under a joe biden. I think this is something. That doesn't just apply to benjamin netanyahu but leeds had good relationships with president trump. I think narendra modi also falls into this category. And even figures like victor or bonham road regurgitate both of whom have also congratulated President elected biden But you know. I think he's a netanyahu in particular is a leader who obviously has a vested interest in maintaining a good. Us israel relationship irrespective of. Who's in the white house. It's no secret that obviously he benefited quite a lot. From having president trump in the white house the the moving of the us embassy to jerusalem being obviously one of those Kind of hallmark examples of a win for him That said He obviously you know. He recognizes that an admin the administration is changing. And i think he wants to shore up that relationship. But you know there's it it's been reported That the trump administration is hoping to kind of work with the israelis to sort of applies more punitive measures on tehran. Before trump leaves the white house in the form of sanctions to kind of make it more difficult for biden to return to the iran nuclear deal and try to bring that back it. This isn't to say that. Netanyahu and biden would necessarily see eye to eye on a lot of things i think we would probably see under a biden administration a return to the bit of the more traditional tone that we've known the us to take these israel Opposition to settlement expansion. That sort of thing support for a two state solution but indeed it will not be as rosy of friendship As we've seen between that and your home trump that's for sure we should also note that President trump's administration was also very close with bolsonaro of brazil. Both are considered to have really supported Populist movements and i'm wondering whether or not Desirable not who's also refrained from Congratulating harrison biden on their win and other populist movements across the world are looking at this and saying well maybe this is signals a change. Here i think it's definitely a loss for them. It's a setback. Because you know. I think particularly for leaders like bolsonaro. Who really sort of you know played on his relationship with president trump domestically I think this is a loss because you know even before particularly with populist movements even in places on like brazil where they aren't in power they could turn and look to president trump until their supporters. Look you know he's able to achieve this in the united states so we can achieve at here if know the greatest the most powerful leader in the world can do this that we can do this where we are so without question. I think it's it's a setback for them They lose that. You know that key ally in the white house But that said i think you know populous leaders like minded leaders to trump. Who could potentially take that narrative and sort of utilize it in their favor so While it is a loss for them. I don't necessarily think that it will end. Sort of their relationship trump or or will end them using trump is sort of an example to their benefit. Yes means seer. Han is a london.

What Xi said: Chinas five-year economic plan
"In Beijing today China's leadership will wrap up discussions of the country's next five-year plan. The Fifth Plenum this meeting is known lays out on list economic and social policy. Goals. At the time of the last one in Two Thousand Sixteen President Xi Jinping reiterated the Party's key target for twenty twenty of achieving a moderately prosperous society. Ardent Should show me into Sean consciously. Jewish. Measures of prosperity have certainly been on the up. And while the rest of the world economy will shrink this year China's will grow moderately. The new Five Year Plan, we'll have to accommodate a world battered by covid nineteen and a trading environment battered by the tensions with America. The fine details won't be made public for some time. The meeting is really just a formality for the country's rubber-stamp parliament. Within those five year plans though live big clues this time in particular to how long Mr See intends to stay in power. The five year plans are an inheritance if you will from the Soviet Union Simon Rabinovich is our Asia economics editor and is based in Shanghai. They used to be extremely rigid where the party was set production quotas for things like steel and grain or the last few decades they've become much more like rough guides as to what the party is aiming to do over the next five years you can almost think of them like election manifestos but of course, given that there's no elections in China the same parties in power one manifesto builds on top of the previous one. And so how does that hand look to you? Did they deliver on the on the last one and what's in this one? The single most important element to the five year plans. The thing that everything else revolves around is the growth target. Last time around their target was that they would average roughly six point, five percent growth annually they actually highly unusual for for the party that this year because of covid pandemic and what that has done to the economy I'm so they came up just short of it and so going into the next five year plan, not because of the pandemic but more because of the very hostile external environment that China now believes it finds itself in they're likely. To set a much lower growth targets, some people speculate that they might not even set one at all. Guess the basic estimate is that they might go for something like roughly five percent annual growth. So it's a big step down from the previous plan but the big thing for the party is that they still see this as the plan that will help to propel the economy and the country forward and so given. What's what's been said at at the plenum? How does China plan to deal with both of the ring down from the pandemic and this hostile environment? Apart from the GDP target, the big thing about the plans often is this sort of philosophy that underpins them. This time around the underpinning philosophy is is something that's been coined the dual circulation strategy, which I know sounds like a bit of a mouthful, but it's quite significant. Previously China talked about the great international circulation, the idea of linking the Chinese economy to the global economy and benefiting from that linkage. Now, the dual circulation is adding in this idea of the great domestic circulation, which is really developing the domestic economy developing domestic demand and production, and ensuring that Shaina is going to be strong enough to withstand the variety. Of External pressures problems that is now facing cynically some people would say, well, it's just old wine in new bottles. China has talked a lot about self reliance in the past developing domestic demand but the fact is I mean, the environment is clearly much more hostile from China's perspective. It's more than just promoting domestic consumption. It's about trying to advance a whole range of sectors trying to secure advanced technologies for China and building up a domestic economy that ultimately can stand on its own two feet, and is that a realistic goal is is looking inward in that way going to protect it from the the fears sees outside its borders. Its goal that comes with clear risks in that no economy no matter how large in terms of size is actually able to be self sufficient. That's that's the nature of globalization today of globalization that China has benefited from tremendously as at all condoms are interlinked but it is understandable given the tensions between China and America in the past couple of years given the fact that a growing number of countries seem to be falling more in line with America's view of China than than of China's you've China it's understandable. That China is quite worried about the rest of the world turning against it easy at other planning documents officials talking about the need for self reliance, a pocket term. These days is the idea of Kabul's issue. She stranglehold technology idea. There's specific technologies that if America or others don't export them to China China's development could basically be stopped. So there is therefore a belief that they need to develop things be at semiconductors be machine tools that will allow China to withstand that kind of walk eight were to develop trying to. Not. There it still has quite way to go to achieve that sort of self sufficiency. It'll be costly to try to get there but nevertheless that as a goal as an objective, this is something that they're very much focused on.

So I remember that one saying southwest Icees. They're the same premises. Same compound who is hosting the three religious sites a temple a church and a mosque and live side assiting signing hall money because although they speak different languages, worship different gods. So that's why all the Singapore's important president today gave the speech that in saying that we are diversified country. Regardless of racial background, regardless of ethnicity.

In terms of civilization is just these discords that stressed the importance or the T V important timing of this conference on the on dialogue of different civilizations. We've heard so many people so many voices calling warning against say possible clashes information. Yes, we do have examples of conflicts of interests and clashes between allies, Asians. But it's the mindset that determines predetermines decision. So we're bound to be different. We ought different and you bound to get along. With the to meet with people with different ideas and different cultural beliefs or religious beliefs than the way, you the way you do the purpose. If you wanna make friends with them, then you try every means may take every action to cost us. I different to gain better understanding so civilization the same issue. So we can spend efforts to learn from each other in order to get a game bed on a Sunday. And to learn about each other to avoid misunderstanding. If your purpose is to have a peacefully coexist in with each other. Then you take every efforts make every means for that end av. You think that's a those who believe same different religions and have different models different social systems different governing styles abound to different. And then this is not our people take size. You sit on the opposite backbench them you're bound to their like an Asian of a problem say that someone. Lost his accent suspicious of the neighbors son to be the the've. There's will you watch him and listen to him than every words will behavior suggests that he is the fiv but one day he goes back and refound rediscover his axe. And then go back to the neighbor and washed the young man, then all no signs of a betas fiv. So it's the mindset that determines the decision. If it won't make a better world living side by side with people were different them. You will cost differences and Cheever tried to achieve a change for the better. Yes. A naturally president Xi Jinping said there is there will be no clash of civilizations. If we understand the beauty of different civilizations. And learn from each other. And he also said that it is foolish to believe that one's raisin civilization are superior to others, and it is disastrous to willfully reshape or even replace other civilizations. What? You make of those and how is the world today different from that of the early ninety nineties when Samuel Huntington put forward the seizes of clash AP's of immediate response in the conference whole warm applause when president she make that remark is self telling that people are Ernest that those people coming from different forty seven countries, even joining others from far away from Greece on other continents, and they are each and every individual's different and they represent different civilizations and different ethnic backgrounds. So they come from same. Same purpose to have dialogue to learn to about each other. And then from each other. That's why.

Opinions was. Turkey regarding the in-depth cooperation between the two countries and our news stencils. So for more on those were now joined by Herman laurel, his the founder of the Philippines, Brooks strategic. Studies scrip a think tank on the Philippines in global affairs. Good evening. Good evening. So missiles, all you think you good evening, Janis Philippines relations winnow, it has reached a low point back in two thousand sixteen because of disputes over the South China Sea. But now things are changing since president deter to coffees and we see the two countries they are reengaging to negotiations on the South China Sea, and they are talking about joint exploration. So how would you describe the Bala ties at the moment? Well, I would describe it a presidency Jingping also described it perfectly in his speech here. In Manila, expanding the start in northern part of the world. It's getting quite cold like in Beijing. But here in Manila, he is treated with warm weather, and he called it the rainbow after the rainbow. So it is a perfect today. It has been a turnaround that has been a chief in the past two and half years with president and president Xi Jinping's. Excellent performance in Nava gate things through the rough waters that are stirred up by some elements. So we are looking forward to many many more developments in this direction. It has been of course, even more auspicious for the Philippines. As we are enjoying the goodwill of China, which is helping helping us develop many of our long pending projects from train systems, reproduce roads. And so on. So to your question. How would you describe the BI lateral eighties? Perfect today, especially government to government. They're still a lot of work between the Chinese side. And our people we need more. She stunts that directly impact the individual lives of certain poor sectors of our society today, most of the dealings between state to state the state government to government, which is alright because that is what is needed for the great lack of infrastructure in our country, which China is assisting in and hopes are already very high. The projects have been delivered very fast two years. And there have been several groundbreaking projects. Already to donate the bridges from China. A water supply. The future water supply system has also been inaugurate to massive drug rehabilitation centers in and many others. But the big ticket projects will be signed by presidency Jingping and and president in this historic visit. So it is a very good time for our bilateral ties in in terms of the sound shown is the I guess that remains potential flashpoint. But Turney has risen we said that everything has been excellent between China and the rest of our Seon spent for except for the frictions between western nations in China. So what do you make of his assessment of? Understand those who understand the true situation and understand the strategy of president the third day. There is no concern at all about the South China Sea issue. There are elements who control much of our media. These are all left over from the twentieth century era of several colonial domination and so on and the ruling class which control the neo-colonial ruling class, which still control much of the economy and much of the media, especially they have even C N N in the Philippines. So which is a version of the American CNN and throughout this passed this afternoon, they had a continuing coverage, and they insert certain. I times that are not accept. Really true and not very good for the impressions about this ongoing engagement of China in the Philippines, but that's one very small sector of our society. It creates all these impressions, but the all regular bilateral talks between China and the Philippines sorts out all the problems and understanding if there are any there's been great progress in the corporation was a major drug bust, which was made possible that it was into the billions of Besson's that was pretty end because of information delivered by the Chinese side.

Nation telecoms, healthcare and cultural sectors, while protecting foreign investors interests and enhancing punitive enforcement for infringement of intellectual property. She has announced plans to extend a free trade zone in Shanghai, which was set up in two thousand thirteen to facilitate deepening reform and opening up. Meanwhile, Tana will build up a new board dedicated to tech startups at the Shanghai Stock Exchange for more on those my colleague, gene, hone earlier spoke was on her tongue Tongan author and columnist and Winston one matted interrupt of ship. Stone group limited so Winston, president Xi Jinping's address among day laundry echoed his earlier remarks in a speech at the boiler foreign for Asia. Backing in April any new take away for you. From today's address. I think it's he's reinforcing the message and to a wider audience because always base. Weekly focused on Asia. Now, these imported expo is targeted at much broader bay. And he's reinforcing the message that China will be committed to further opening up, and that is that is very important message because of the disputes between China and the United States and also against the background where you see the writing protectionist movements or sentiments, and he's trying to hold the, you know, free-trade banner and can set an example by you know, what he does not only just say it will be a powerful message. So I know I guess a lot of those international companies joining events stay or somehow stuck in this kind of dilemma there on one hand they need to maintain their sharing the need to do business with China. But on the other hand that feel like all if they are like too, much engage. In west China with the Chinese government sponsored events they would somehow make make make people like Trump on happy. But somehow of the remarks from president Xi Jinping is somehow making them comfortable, and like one instance that reassuring some of the long term messages promises Chinese authorities half being making so what is your take? Well, I I like to look at it in terms of the broader context that since the out for what what have we seen here we've seen India in China getting closer together you've seen trilateral between South Korea and also Japan making a new significance with meetings between the leaders and things like that this signals that there's an Asian century. That's coming up. It also says that China is playing is not putting all of its egg in the US basket. And there's good reasons for that, regardless of whether it's Trump or democrat a lot. Out of the same issues intentions are going to be there. And a lot of same postures will be will be part of that. So well, Trump might be more rude. Moral playground bully, you know, the same pressures being pushed by somebody who's seemingly nicer it just says long-term this is not an area where you can get much traction. So China's look world's Asian. They say, look, here's the US. According to the OECD, the US exported two point two trillion dollars worth of goods and services last year. Let's go to the EU twenty eight nation states. They exported eight point three trillion four times as much as US. So you know, it brings into sharp relief number questions. Why is the world trading in dollars? When the the petrodollars set up when the US was the main demand agent. Pour oil from. The Middle East. How it's now it's much larger than the US last month became the largest oil producer in the world at eleven point five million barrels per day, and it's not the largest trading. So you're starting to see a lot of leakages people's into currency swaps. As they start looking at other things, I think there's a move towards looking at a basket of currencies rather than just one single currency to create value. You know, look at all the countries out there who are being killed by the fact that their currencies has been devalued get dollars. So their dollar loans are now in some cases twice expensive 'cause they lost fifty percent of their value versus dollar. So looking at trade looking at the monetary system looking at long-term connections, where they you can build markets where you have friendly groups who are dedicated trait like the eat you like Japan likes out pre like, Osceola like Africa, like South America, basically like..

After four point seven percent week weekly close and the Shanghai composite was up almost one percent. European stocks up. And the US stocks are up. But if China has if President Trump has this meeting with China, it's going to be a very good thing. But I don't think the markets are moving on the idea that that President Trump's having a meeting with China over trade trade and tariffs have a lot to do with. What went on these last couple of days? I believe. But at the same time an announcement that there might be a meeting wasn't good enough. Now, they say there is going to be a meeting, but I think it's still they both get at the table behind closed doors, and they know they're meeting they're going to be going to wait and see. I gotta believe that everybody around the globe has watched negotiations with the US and Mexico US and Canada US and South Korea, the US and Japan, although that's not finished yet. But so far what's been done in Japan, the US and Vietnam, Indonesia, some other parts of the of the Pacific rim, the US and what is beginning in Europe in the euro-zone. Everybody's watching that there's a common thread in all of it. Let me just make it clear. There's a common thread or all of it, the common thread is very simple. And I gotta believe that China is smart enough to see what the common thread is the common thread is easy compromise. They all have had to give concessions and compromise. Every single one of embar on. They all had a compromise. Our outta to give some things up the US gave some things up too, by the way, but they had to give some things up. Is China going to be willing to give some things up is John in a position to give some things up? China is only in the position to give some things up or they're going to be giving up a lot more in some things they might be given up in the negotiation process.
