rishaad: better than expected gdp jump in australia. let's go to sydney to get some analysis. what did you make of those numbers, 2.4%, wasn't it? it was pointed percent quarter on quarter, better than anticipated. david: yeah, much better than anticipated. i reckon the rba will be a little bit frustrated.
he would be happy with a result, but in terms of with the exception of the economy, what the data say's, a little bit counterintuitive. a stunning result locally for the gdp. yossi checked back up. looking pretty resilient. the outlook for the rba is probably to keep their hands in their pockets. it was 2.3% year on year. is kind of counterintuitive. at the end of the day, this number was help loan by exports, boosted by the weakness in the industrial and dollar. -- the australian dollar. david: you would think so. the contest the economy is in an interesting sort of juncture.
i was looking at last week's result. if we take the capex numbers, which were horrendous, ubs quoted them as saying they are beginning to go towards recessionary levels. an economy that is trying to transition away from a mining resources hiving led boom, it -- from a mining resources-led a little bit unnerving. australia is where the rba is comfortable with it. the wheels are certainly turning. rishaad: yes, absolutely. what happens next? what does the reserve bank actually want? they want a 75 handle for the aussie dollar. how are we going to get there -- how are they going to get to that target?
and terms of where the aussie dollar goes, the aussie is probably going to keep within a fairly contingent range. tore are some calls for a push back up towards the $.80 mark. really thing that will help us get there is significant weakness in the u.s. dollar and maybe some stunning data as we saw today. will help usg that get up there. but in terms of where the rba needs the aussie to be, certainly fair value at the moment with savings around 75. there is an argument from our perspective that it would be around 70 of sense -- $.74. offe get closer to the lift day for u.s. interest rates and policy normalization, certainly that will engender stronger u.s. dollar focus. nowink we are in the range where we are asking staff to see a little bit of an impact in
terms of what last week's numbers meant to the economy in where the impact will be from a confidence perspective. investment which is waning, it's a little bit concerning. it is probably not an issue in terms of access to cash and capital. there are a lot of cached out companies that are looking for investment but they are not happy or confident with the environment in which to do that. there are a couple of competing things. term, theyo medium start tracking towards 75. rishaad: great talking to you. >> 15 people rescued from the sank in thethat

growing more strongly than thought in the last quarter. it is driven along by improving exports. these numbers beat expectations. about this read being better than anticipated, right? paul: that's right. we got a bit of an indication that something special was in store with yesterday's current account numbers showing that experts are going to contribute half a percentage point to gdp. so we have a number of analysts scrambling to update their forecasts for today's gdp figures, which did rate earlier expectations. giving us on annualized figure of 2.3% for the year. expected,n the 2.1 but weaker than the 2.5% we had for the previous annual period. so that is all very good news. we have the reserve bank of
australia. yesterday, holding the cash rate at 2% as was widely expected. but in this statement was all forecastsdownbeat with growth they below trend, being weak, about public spending being subdued. so there is still plenty of headwinds for the australian economy. today's gdp growth figures certainly varying -- certainly very encouraging in the interim.

capital as he can out of these good numbers this morning, he said they were consistent with expectations, confirmed australia is writing to the challenge. he also drove up the production boom. undermining production has broken all records. the strongest result for experts. he also talked the potential with the services industry, which makes up 77% of australia's economy. but just 17% of the exports. this is something that joe hockey would want to improve upon while he is in office. he says that services and exports are up 8% in the last year. expect that to be help the longer the tree -- the free trade agreements recently signed. joe hockey in a good morning this morning, thanks to the gdp figures. the candidate all be sustained? rishaad: paul, thank you. let's go to our other top story. sitting down.

what do you think made the pressure unbearable for him to stay as resident russian mark >> i think one by one, his close confidant and aides were being mad so to speak. jerome lookers position becoming untenable. ,robably when he realized that there was enough and he had nowhere else to go but to leave. rishaad: there are reports that he is a -- he is under investigation as well. with everything going on, he is bound to be under investigation, isn't it? >> will, yeah. after all, he did preside over this whole affair for many years. it would be odd if he wasn't questioned about his knowledge and absence thereof of the various goings-on.

rishaad: before the break, we had some technical problems. we were discussing how sepp blat ter may have been under investigation. you say you are not surprised by that. head of anou are the organization that is mired in so much controversy, it would be odd if you weren't questioned. are actualnot there allegations against you, that is a different matter. i would be surprised if they did not pull him in for some questions. i don't think that is a surprise in itself. but what i do think, before he leaves, whenever that may be, mr. blatter will have to make
place a goodin and a properorm way of choosing his successor. there shouldn't be any more negative legacy that is left behind by sepp blatter. rishaad: isn't he entirely the wrong person to be doing that? in your view, who would you like next?the helm of fifa guest: we just had an election and we had two candidates at the end, the incumbent and prince ali of jordan. i was very much upping prince ali would win. he is young. he has reformist ideas. he is popular. as somebodyacross who is very quiet, sort of
introvert. but actually, he is very passion ate about the sport and changing it for the better. what should anybody who takes the home, what should be the priority in your view? prioritiesainly changing the way fifa is run at the top. maybe an age limit. also, people have to look at a way the executive committee is formed. inre are just 24 people nine-member associations governing everything about fifa, including the way the world cup hosting rights are allocated around the world.
--ch is why there is so much well, not why, but certainly one of the reasons that gave so much or corruptcorruption practices to be generated in the first place. that needs to be looked at immediately. come inone association other words, one member, should continue to have one vote, that is another question. all right, it is nice and good governance, i had my own questions. my top three would be those. quickly, has it become highly unlikely that qatar will be hosting the 2022 finals? i wouldn't want to second-guess what happens on that front. it is so mired. it is a real can of worms.
lid is only just about staying on for now. ise pulled lose, i think it going to be quite messy. look, should qatar be allowed to run it? possibly yes. that a fullondition story, a full investigation of what actually happened being made known. for example, the michael's garcia report. you have to ask why it is being repressed. we need to know what is in those reports. only then can we move a couple enough., fair improve the, let's and very important
decisions are made in the future. rishaad: thank you so much for joining us. yvonne: malaysia airlines and the government have settled a lawsuit filed by two brothers who lost their father when flight and makes 370 disappeared. the boys sued for negligence and breach of contract. the amount of compensation has not been released but was agreed upon by both sides. it is believed to be the first settlement over the flight that vanished 15 months ago. have postpone a verdict on mohamed morsi who could the densely receive a death sentence. prosecutors say morsi and other leaders of the banned muslim brotherhood conspired to free prisoners during the arab spring uprising.

see a very quick move to another compound going forward, which is a major development for the company. rishaad: how are the regulators in the u.s. handling this issue? and a quick issue over whether takata can survive this? is an open question which is in large part dependent on what other parents or even what other automakers step up to shoulder some of the costs. you look at the amount of resources on its balance sheet, it is just not there versus the cost of cleaning up this mess. itsa, the regulator, for part, is starting to use this crisis for its agenda. it is putting out its lack of funding and an inflation-adjusted the basis. and arguing for more funding and the ability to be tougher on the
