5:06 pm
bloomberg, shery? shery: thank you. trade tensions deliver the weakest expansion in three years. local economics and policy editor kathleen hays is here. secondn, this is the downgrade in three months. what is going on? kathleen: mainly, it is too big things, recently, the slowdown by germany that the imf is seeing. they also have a big red flag over china, because china of course, as the roles since-largest economy, 2009, is able to do that now. clearly one of the imf's concerns here. listen to what christine lagarde said earlier in davos. the economy continues to move ahead,
5:07 pm
significantly higher risks, some of them actually related to risks are, and these increasingly in a trend. andk of how higher tariffs rising uncertainty over future trade policy, higher market all until he. -- volatility. kathleen: and certainly uncertainty about trade, nations in the european union, certainly around the region. volatility, a list of concerns, a growth in the u.s. and china, unchanged since christine lagarde made this report. and it is interesting, a lot of people worried about a slowdown in the united states. china of course just giving their report since 2009, but
5:08 pm
tariffs, financial conditions, a brexit, a deeper china slowdown, all of these things are on christine lagarde's list. paul: kathleen, you can usually rely on germany to be a pillar of strength in the eu, but the imf just cut germany for its forecast, slashed it into the red. kathleen: did they ever? paul, when i was reading the report, that is what left out at me, a zero 6% cut just since october so let 1.26% again, but that is quite a reduction in the outlook. weak factory output. let's jump into our bloomberg library. factory production just going off a cliff in germany, and we can say certainly the u.s.-china trade war, including the china over, also the brexiteers
5:09 pm
the eu it is also true that they cut their slow growth forecast to italy. we know they were battling with their budget. finances more expensive in the midst of all of that. france, protests against president macron's policies, another one who had forecasts cut. what is interesting to me is the ecb is meeting on thursday. well mario draghi acknowledge this, acknowledging a softening in europe? we are getting ready now may be to cut that and what that means for ecb policy. will that rate cut ever happen? some people say maybe by the end of this year, maybe not all. the imf, emerging market forecast, 4.5%. that is only down 0.2% from october, so at least it looks broadly the out markets are holding up pretty well amidst
5:10 pm
all of this uncertainty over trade, financial markets, and more. paul: all right, global economics and policy editor kathleen hays in tokyo. thank you for that. chinese president xi jinping said political stability is in serious danger. concern in the party about the social implications of the slowing economy. china correspondent tom mackenzie joins us now from beijing. tom, there seems to be a sense of urgency from president xi. tom: i think that is right. we have heard from president xi in the last few months, talking about the downward pressure is on the economy, talking about pressures, that of course the trade tensions with the u.s. this is the first time we have heard president xi talk about serious risks and dangers to the communist party's long-term rule. they have not had to wrestle with a slowdown of which we are
5:11 pm
seeing now, at least over the last three decades or so. kathleen was pointing out fourth-quarter growth came in at the lowest since 2009, but a full 2018 growth, it came in at 6.6% at the lowest in three decades. there has been an assumption amongst officials over the last three decades in china that as growth continues to grow, they can pretty much have a grip on social stability. it is a key concern, social stability, and our team has been traveling around china, and it suggests at least the manufacturing parts of the country, there are increasingly off. -- increasing layoffs. this is an unusual meeting between leaders in beijing. there was a lot of statement. -- secrecy. we only heard about it when president xi release a statement. a risk to the communist party. if that is not are on the communist already cadre to get their act together, then nothing will. there is something to be said
5:12 pm
about the anniversaries late this year, some key anniversaries. some china watchers could be a flashpoint for those with anxiety, for those with issues, they could coalesce around some of these anniversaries, including october 1, the 70th anniversary of the people's republic of china, and also the 30th anniversary, i should say, of the tenement square massacre -- tiananmen square massacre on june 4. there will be concern among some in the communist party, but certainly a pretty clear-cut warning from president xi, particularly given the slow down here and of course the pressures with the trade tensions with the u.s. , the president of france seems to be making the most of china's economic slowdown. minutes ago, he tweeted "china post slowest economic numbers since 1992 to u.s. trade tensions and policies make so much sense for china to
5:13 pm
finally do a real deal and stop playing around," and yet, tom, there seems to be increasing difficulties when it comes to any sort of agreement, especially on structural reforms coming on china, like ip protection. paul: hmm. this is bloomberg. ♪ absolutely, -- tom: absolutely, and this seems to be a shift in tone from president trump. she had come out with a number eets saving pretty positive. we have tweets from president trump say in talks are moving along well. this may be an acknowledgment of the president around of course those issues, suggesting there has not been enough movement, at least from the u.s. perspective, on the intellectual liberty theft -- intellectual property theft. there is concern that when the vice premier goes to the u.s., they will have to do something really substantial to go to the table to move something to the
5:14 pm
march 1 deadline. we have been talking about the economy. there is a view linking back to kathleen's comments around the global growth picture, that china is not going to be able to provide the kind of support it has in the past. 2008, 2009, it injected record stimulus in the economy. there is an expectation by capital economists, for example, that china will not 0.2% off of global growth for 2019. the big question is if the data points keep deteriorating, will be chinese policymakers resort to the kind of master stimulus that they have in the past? so far, they have tried to hold the line on that, and that shows china will have big role in the global economy this year. paul: all right, tom mackenzie, thank you. to breakingt you news across the terminal. u.k. opposition proposing an referendum.e brexit the labour party creating a lot
5:15 pm
ofcriticism, so a lo bit clarity coming through here, options should not pollute a public vote on brexit, proposed in the name of labor leader jeremy corbyn, who demands parliament should hold a vote on options to avoid a no deal. a proposal there for an option of a second referendum as well. still ahead, the world if economic forum kicks off in davos. what will happen should the u.s. and china fail to reach a trade deal? shery: but next, striking a deal with russia, but it will not be easy. this is bloomberg. ♪ this is bloomberg. ♪
5:16 pm
5:17 pm
paul: i am paul allen in sydney. shery: i am shery ahn in new york. you are watching "daybreak: australia." warning that the global economy is at a turning point. we have someone at the event on what will be on the agenda.
5:18 pm
>> the theme this year is globalization 4.0 in the sense of some defiance on the part of the world economic forum, a backdrop of rising global angela's asian -- anti-globalization sentiment. globalization may have peaked, but government leaders will have to continue to work together to advance issues like populism, easing growth, climate change. china is now looking at the slowest growth in about 10 years, since the last global financial crisis. the brexit situation in the u.k. and the u.s.-china trade war does not seem to be easing anytime soon, no solution in sight at this point in time. what is apparent, of course, is the absence of several global leaders, the likes of president may, who have decided to stay home because of
5:19 pm
domestic issues. all of these reflect very challenging times and the issues that will have to be addressed at this world economic forum. shery: bloomberg's haslinda amin in davos. eurasia groupis to res director of japan. joining us. you for president trump is not attending, prime minister theresa may also not attending, of course other domestic issues they have to deal with, including the shut down here in the u.s., not to mention brexit. how important will be. postmeeting be, -- will be davos meeting be, when we continue to see u.s.-china trade tensions? scott: davos will always be important, because you have so many brilliant, important people
5:20 pm
, but at the same time, as the world grows closer together, i think we are seeing even more of these types of events, and unfortunately, i think it becomes difficult for will leaders and titans of industry to try to obtain. japanese also have prime minister shinzo abe meeting in moscow, and they are trying to discuss their own issues, including the sovereignty of four small islands. are we expecting any progress on this issue? scott: not really. obviously continuing what has been a pretty good relationship with both countries, abe would very much like to make some sort of concrete progress in his efforts to include a peace treaty, long-standing territory. but neither side seems really
5:21 pm
ready to make a big deal. news of aalso we have possible second summit between president trump and kim jong-un on north korea. mind, the first one to not really achieve a great deal beyond a media frenzy. is there any reason at all to they north korea will give up its nuclear weapons? scott: i don't think so. i don't think many people have thought from the very beginning of this process that north korea was really interested in giving up his weapons. this will be another opportunity for president trump, of course, to have a high profile type of encounter with kim, something that probably will be very important for trump back home, to appeal to his base. but we do not see that there will be any significant progress. perhaps they will get some additional momentum behind the negotiating process, as some people have said. it has really stalled out.
5:22 pm
we do not see any big change in north korea's position. scott: -- paul: yeah, and you reinforce that point in your notes, that kim will find ways to invade or whittle away at national sanctions. it really is straight out of the playbook, this kind of behavior, isn't it? around we go again. how does this cycle get broken? scott: well, we do not see it being broken it for quite some time. we long-standing call is will continue to see this type of engagement through the rest trump's current term -- current term, and we think there they be reason to think will use this as part of the 2020 presidential campaign, perhaps arguing that he was the only one to start the process, and therefore he needs another turn to be the only one who can actually finish it. we are likely to see this process rock on, if not for the next couple of years, then longer. on, if not for the next
5:23 pm
couple of years, then longer. it could be february, but as we have had the government shutdown for more than a month now, south korea also is home to 28,000 u.s. troops. we have had president trump announcing withdrawal from syria and afghanistan. coulds is possible, reductions in staff beyond the table, and what are the implications of that? scott: i do not think anything is off the table in the sense that i would not totally discount the possibility that perhaps trump, in agreement with south korea, would withdraw a symbolically small number of public opinion, both in south korea and in the united states, is really strongly behind keeping u.s. troops there. that does not mean trump is going to simply take it out without some sort of bargaining but ultimately, there
5:24 pm
is not much support on either side for that type of change. this is bloomberg. ♪ -- all right, scott seaman, eurasia group director of japan and korea, thank you for joining us on "bloomberg daybreak: australia." bloomberg subscribers can go to on the terminal, and you can customize so you only get the news that you care about. this is bloomberg. ♪ this is bloomberg. ♪

fariesll right, bill joining us from washington, d.c. here in australia, b.h.p. released second-quarter figures with iron ore and copper outputs coming in shy estimates. over to melbourne and our commodities reporter, david stringer. what impact have we seen from the issue b.h.p. had with the runaway iron ore train in november? david: good morning, paul. you recall, in november, extraordinary incident in hub, aia, the iron ore driver stepped off one of the iron ore trains to conduct inspections and it without him hurtling 90 kilometers through that part of western australia without a aboard, out of control, until brought to a halt when in perth deliberately derailed the train. today is thatid
5:38 pm
cost them four million tons of output in the last quarter of 2018 and we're seeing an impact on shipments. 7% lower than the same period a year earlier. perhaps more importantly it's terms of off track in meeting full-year guidance. is a littleed rate bit shy of the target for the full year at this point. so certainly some impact from that incident. not surprising. leave trainas to wagon mangled across a mile-long stretch of track. shery: b.h.p. has also had issues at its copper operations. impact of overall that? david: that's right, it's not inlated, that one insdented iron ore. they've been encountering chile aties both in the spence mine and also in australia, the giant olympic dam, copper, gold, uranium mine with fires and outages. result is b.h.p. says
5:39 pm
they will lose $600 million in losses as a result of lost production, outages, maintenance costs. it looks like it will add to what already looks like a slightly difficult environment we move into an earnings report next month. that sort ofagged targets for operational costs creep a little bit higher which could have impact profit. paul: and david, volume's down in b.h.p.'s oil division. it sold itsafter u.s. shale assets but are there to add more conventional output? david: absolutely. 11 billion divestment of the u.s. shale assets completed last year and very much a focus on growing production from conventional oil. talked about success they've had in the trion project on the mexican side of the gulf mexico. they've encountered oil there

5:43 pm
avoid damaging the global economy and spoke to us at the forum in dasvos. >> i think both sides are trying and we have ant few weeks to go before we see the final decision. bothnk it is important for sides to try and cut the deal because the impact on the global economy of any trade friction is going to be very negative. haslinda: where do you see room for compromise between the u.s. and china? >> i think there are a number of it's not just about the trade figures, it's propertyt intellectual and longer term balance between the two economy so there are a number of items they're discussing including the way in companies are dealt with and the way intellectual with andhas been dealt the size of the deficit. but the deficit in many ways is reflection of broader
5:44 pm
economic factors, like aonomists will say that it is measure of the balance between savings and investments in the and those sorts of changes will all need to be made but byt by one country all countries involved. haslinda: if when there are the supply chain as a result of this trade war, where place?ese changes take >> the global supply chain today is highly integrated. multinationals in particular overbeen sourcing from all the world and it's a very delicate, integrated supply so in the short run, many companies are really scrambling they cant how restructure the supply chain to resilient.ittle more haslinda: from china to vietnam, china to? >> i think so. there are some aspects in the china andia between
5:45 pm
southeast asia. southeast asia companies will have the benefit of some of this restructuring. for instance, some logistics companies are reporting that as conflictof this trade as well as broader longer term shifts in the economic numbers, instance, the rates across world, itparts of the is really shifting, accelerating. and at the same time chinese going out of china. china has an explicit strategy of encouraging companies to go out. so as they go out, the entire beply chain will reconfigured. haslinda: countries like china and russia have been seeking an dollar.ive to the u.s. what do you make of the dominance of the u.s.d.? >> the u.s. dollar has been very widely used for many years now across the whole economy. global, during the
5:46 pm
financial crisis of 2007-2008, u.s. dollar played a very important role dollar. what do you and i must say that the federal reserve played key role in providing u.s. dollar toe enable the global economy to recover and prevent deeper recession so the u.s. dollar remains a very important currency. i would say in the short runs a -- no clear alternative to the u.s. dollar. the u.s. has the largest economy today, will remain fairly run.ficant in the long in the short run. but in the longer run, i think otherwill be arrangements. paul: that was singapore's finance minister speaking with min in davos.
5:47 pm
discusseda chairman european risks in an exclusive interview. the issues we, have around the world are virtually all political. politicians can get together, solve that and help the world economy rather than the cycleit, i think could go on for some time but the reality is that they're way. the opposite my first boss always said over politicianslly the will f it up and at the moment they're definitely doing that. how bad is it? guy: it depends where you are the u.k. it's almost rationally invest in the u.k. at the moment unless you're really looking at distress because there's masses downside which are unquantifiable. you don't know. and the upside is very limited. contrast, somewhere like
5:48 pm
italy which in some ways has basket case for years, has this huge economy measure and the you have there are, massive upside so i'd rather go for italy than the u.k. which is something i would not have said in the last 50 years. >> what do you make of what is continent atthe the moment? germany close to a recession. in germanysted before in the past. france is slowing down rapidly. the italian economy, you've about, but it's teetering on edge of recession. spain is slowing down quickly, well. are you surprised by the speed of what is happening? particularly. people always sort of feel that the politics is not relevant you're in business and it's not relevant until it's very it'sant and at the moment extraordinarily relevant because you don't know how to have and if i don't have
5:49 pm
confidence, i know the average person on the street doesn't ave confidence because i'm risk taker by nature. people are scared. they don't know what's going to happen. the french germans getting together against maybe poles.lian that's a bizarre conversation. meanwhile, britain is saying all by ourselves and where does that leave the irish? you go through europe and besides the nordics, everywhere face.as real issues to >> where are you seeing opportunities? you talked a little bit about italy. scene int the economic front of you, where would you be prepared to invest right now considering the political chaos face? guy: we've just done invest in finland. comfortable about that. we are seeing some investment germany buts in we're looking for businesses local or either very the opposite, have a global position. which aren't easy to
5:50 pm
understand and which we hopefully can buy at a because therice other issue is that prices, very,vanilla, prices are very high at the moment and that's dragging even businesses which are really not plain up so you've got to really go for the extremely quirky to find something that is reasonable value level. shery: that was the chairman of exclusivelyspeaking to bloomberg. if you missed part of that conversation, tv go is your function. you can watch us live and see our past interviews there and dive into any of the securities or bloomberg functions that we talk about and also you can be part of the conversation. bottom left, ask the guest a question, send us your questions. we'll try to ask them. this is for bloomberg subscribers only. this is bloomberg. ♪
