assembly for the 737 in china. where, and what are we talking about in terms of how many planes? randy: we look at it, china is an currently large market. over the next 20 years, 40% of all airplanes will be delivered into the asian market, and 40% of those will go to china, and at the heart of demand is the airplanes like the 737. to put it into perspective, 25% of our airplanes over the last couple years have been delivered to china. and one out of 3737's. rishaad: you have not answered my question. randy: i'm getting there. we have yet to determine where we are going to build this completion center. it's going to be a huge marketplace, so we will be putting a number of airplanes to the completion center. we are working on the details. it's the right thing to do. rishaad: this goes to the next generation 77 as well? randy: we will fly airplanes

randy: what's interesting, we have seen a slowdown on economic growth, as i think we all expected, but we are seeing a restructuring of the economy, one more based on retail sales and services. this seems to help our industry, which is around travel, so we see no slowdown in traffic domestically and regionally, and we have seen a significant uptick internationally, especially as the chinese government has changed policies around visas. visas are no longer in duration and easier to get. we have temporary visas for travel through china. all those things have really helped stimulate international traffic. rishaad: randy, thank you very much for joining us. randy tinseth, from boeing. shery: a suspected muslim militant has posted a video claiming to show a group of hostages seized in a holiday resort last month. manila says the pictures show two canadians and in a region at a local woman taken from a mar a

things have been papered over. then they have had to go in and check out layer after layer of problems. then we get the kind of drip of scandal, as we had with toshiba, where it just seems to get wider and wider as time goes on. toyo shares are on a rebound today. does it look like they can settle this problem quickly? dave: it does seem like this problem has been contained. at least that's what investors are indicating. part of that has to do with the fact that the materials in question are only a small part of the company's business. yesterday, they said annual revenues were about ¥2 billion, fairly small compared to overall revenue. they did 80% from tires, vehicle tires, and that's 95% of profit. aasahi: tell me about
kasei. what's going on here? dave: yesterday, the story broke about sumitomo construction, a subcontractor using asahi kasei materials. there had been a building that subsidence, that was leaning, and the investigation put the finger on sumitomo, and they in turn put the figure on asahi kasei, the manufacturer of rubber materials used in the building. asahi kasei today admitted they had modified data from the report when they had installed some support pillars for the building. so that is causing their shares to decline today. where another example of data compliance has not been up to snuff. rishaad: dave, thanks.
dave mccombs, joining us from tokyo. a look at what's going on in china with the telecom industry. wireless carriers, news of a major restructuring when it comes to the mobile phone business. tim joins us now with more. what's going on here, and what's behind the reorganization? really, is quite simple. china tower is being set up to run, as the name suggests, the mobile phone towers that are dotted around china. like most countries, every individual telco has the run towers. sometimes they lease those from third parties. there's a lot of doubling up going on. so what basically happening is the government has stepped in and has suggested a new restructuring take place. so china mobile, china unicom, china telecom, will put together assets into the central unit, the central company, and
essential company will be running at. the idea is to stop the doubling up and make it more efficient, and in syria 11 to free up money to put toward may be better technology or rolling out to the further provinces of china. rishaad: tell me something, tim. it's a bit unusual, isn't it, for a government to get so involved at such a granular level? tim: yeah, but this is china. in china, it's common for government to get involved at the granular level. we are seeing under xi jinping, he has wanted to clean up a lot of state owned industries. telecoms is one of them. looking at transportation, other industries where they want consolidation and efficiency to go on. but if you look outside of china, you can see even in australia they have the mbn network, so it's not unusual. some areas of large
infrastructure, the government says, we better look after this and make sure we can get it done and put together. rishaad: thanks, tim. the latest on the reorganization of telecoms in china. let's have a look at other stories. china could cut natural gas prices by as much as 30% to encourage the use of cleaner fuels. sources tell bloomberg news could come as soon as next month. india is looking to deregulate the price of gas from local fields. producers have been calling for change, saying the current tariff is too low to support production. approval towon build a $20 billion gas pipeline across china with an annual capacity of 30 billion cubic meters of gas, linking western east, xinjiang to guangdong. there is no timetable yet. rate hikean impending
again. the latest facebook says the economy expanded modestly with little inflation pressure since august. labor markets have tightened in most regions as wage growth remains weak. butsitive outlook -- manufacturing was weaker. that may feel the divide among policymakers about when to hike policy -- interest rates. australia welcomes the , with the tpp deal prime minister calling it a giant foundation for the country. we spoke to the trade minister. >> most of the tpp countries, there's 12 of them, of course, from what i know is there has been a great reception. in the u.s. there's a lot of politics around it. in the end, you will hear all sorts of ups and downs about what will happen, but in the end it will be such a significant
deal. is coveredworlds gdp by this. a third of world trade. now one set of rules. custom rules, electronic commerce rules across 40% of the world's gdp. it will massively improve the efficiency and cost of doing business, and i think you will find that in the end the tpp has to pass. it is going to set the scene for the 21st century in terms of the way trade deals are struck. together with the free trade agreement with china, with japan, with korea, we have got the breach from a resources and energy boom to a more diverse economy. missingou said you were a piece of the puzzle. where are we on this? the eu says they are open to negotiations. what can you tell us? >> they announced yesterday that we are on the list for the next
five years to conclude a trade agreement. angie: what should it look like? theor australia, agriculture component is part of it. the china deal has spectacular opportunities with clean, healthy food and whatever. there will be a big investment component. there are still very big investors in australia from europe, and nature services -- and a major services component. in the global supply chain, australia is very competitive. not across the board, but in highly specialized, highly skilled. we are a knowledge-based economy, reflecting the eu agreement. at the moment, the first party for us, i am spending a lot of time in india at the moment. angie: what is happening in india? i have been back eight or nine
times. angie: have you talked to modi? >> every time. angie: what are you talking about? >> the trade and investment agreement with in yet that is well-advance. it will be a very high quality deal. india is probably 20 years behind china, but inaccurately moving like china was. angie: is it going to look like what we see in the tpp, agriculture-based, or is it taking on a different component? >> again, it's more in the china mold. we have a great deal in china with agriculture. india doesn't need cheap lettuce. it needs our expertise. prime minister modi said to me the first time i met him, we need access to your expertise to help us with our great potential
rishaad: getting you back to breaking news from korea. the bank of korea saying that they don't see the economy growing more than 2.7% in 2015, a slight reduction. they were looking at a growth rate of 2.8% just a short while ago, and they are blaming this, the bank of korea, on external factors, which are at the moment playing into this downside risk. we also see the bank of korea saying the china slowdown and the federal reserve rate hike could be a risk when they look at what's going on. we had a bit of movement.
let's get this over to david. david: we see the south korean currency, the won, and the equity markets react. the coffee index is -- kospi index is up over 1%. you have a lot of these revisions. we're getting lines right now on the cpi. they have cut the forecast for next year to 1.7%. just to emphasize this, they are adjusting a lot of these targets, a lot of these forecasts, though not by a lot. growth, aut 0.1% for 0.1% reduction in the inflation forecast.as the pointed out -- rish, key risks are external in nature, which doesn't help when your economy is highly dependent. upth korean won is 1.5%
against the u.s. dollar, the biggest move so far in roughly four years. rishaad: one of the major suppliers is taking a tumble. we and phone -- lee and fung, forecasts fromer walmart in the next fiscal year. we have a slowdown in china partly blamed for dragging down global prices around the world, from t-shirts to televisions. our economics correspondent is here to sign -- explain. how is china leading this? itshe bank of korea had inflation forecast. china is exporting deflation around the world. it used to does the plastics and toys, but they are now exporting
high-end tech goods and they want to move even higher, with robotics. china is a big player, the world's biggest exporter. rishaad: this is a problem for central banks. central banks in history have been there to try to put a lid on inflation. it's quite unusual for them to try to stoke up inflation. >> not all inflation is good. not all is bad, either. the problem is, central banks have cut interest rates around the world 600 times as the crisis areas. trillions of dollars in quantitative easing, and none of it is generating the level of demand policymakers want to see. as falling prices remain, that you a lid on -- that keeps a lid on consumption and demand and investment. rishaad: it's not just china. >> china is the world's biggest
explorer -- exporter, but to be sure, slack demand is an issue around the world. commodity prices are falling, not just because of china. export prices are falling, not just because of china. as we mentioned, china is the world's biggest exporter, and they are increasingly making more and more of what the world consumes, so we can't completely disconnect them from the story. rishaad: let's turn to the stories making headlines around the world. in the middle east, israel has applied troops and approved new security measures to stem a surge of attacks by palestinian protesters. seven israelis have died in sevens and shootings this month, and 31 palestinians died in response. the new measures include sealing off arab neighborhoods and easing restrictions on israelis buying guns. investigators have wrapped up their investigation into iran''s nuclear plants today, related to
the lifting of oil sanctions. once they are done, inspectors have until december 2 complete their report. sanctions will likely be lifted in the first three months of next year, after the iaea confirms iran has curtailed its current nuclear program. a new survey by afghanistan and the united nations claims the production of opium has fallen sharply. 3300 tons of the drug were produced in the first nine months of 2015. if that's true, it would mean a 40% reduction from last year. billions of dollars have been spent on cap for narcotics campaigns -- counter-narcotics campaigns. the taliban raises money through opium production and distribution. after years of tax troubles, vodafone is planning an ipo. ♪
rishaad: this is "trending business" with me, rishaad salamat. vodafone's england division is comparing to go public. the chief executive says england is one of its most -- india is one of its most important markets. more on this from mumbai. yesterday said they started preparatory work for an ipo. the group ceo refused to get down to the exact date of when we could see the ipo. the group had an investment bank compile a report about the benefits of a possible idea, which would give the company cash and offer investors the idea to -- the opportunity to
read benefits from a market whose gains are outstripping other markets. growth has been held back because of regulatory and tax issues in india. vodafone is india's second-largest wireless operator with a market capitalization of 9.5 billion euros. the india division accounts for 10% of vodafone's worldwide revenue. the business has more than 118 million customers here in india. the biggest overhang for vodafone in india has been a massive tax dispute it has been facing. sayste that, vodafone that's not really going to hamper the ipo plans, without going into details. rishaad: thanks for that. that is it for this thursday edition of "trending business." up next is "asia edge."
