lowering their sovereign outlooks. speaking in washington after the , so theseng downgrades happened last month, and china has taken some time to respond here. of a delayedit reaction, an interesting given the initial reaction from china was that they did not care too much about the cuts because it had little impact, but stronger language coming through from the , takingfinance minister the opportunity to denounce the international ratings agencies for bias against china. he says the downgrades don't reflect the market performance of that debt and don't reflect the economic realities. he points to the high levels of gdp growth at 6.7 percent and the first quarter quarter in line with the government targets , despite, as you can see,
topline gdp growth falling from double digits in 2010 to that 6.5% level that were seeing now. not actuallygdp is what the ratings agencies are only concerned about. when they cut their outlook on sovereign debt for china, they cited the debt burden which went from 164% to almost 250% of gdp between 2000 8-2015, and the cost of servicing that debt is the concern. that is already a significant drag on growth and will only be exacerbated going further. you can see the problem in the search and chinese bonds, at the same time this recovery being field by more debt, march aggregate financing, 360 billion dollars, one of the highest on record and comes on the back of that record lending that we saw at the beginning of this year, a lot of that going into the property market.
that has been fueling the recovery. the finance minister says that ratings agencies and the imf, which has also warned of the rocky china rebalancing, he says they are not familiar with the reforms in the pipeline, including the controversy of to equity swap program. he said the supply-side measures are also in the works. counting downlso to those property prices at the bottom of the hour. some other stories we are watching for you today. morning. the world's finance chiefs and did spring talks in washington on an up the note but cautioned the financial calm may only be to liberate. they say risks have stabilize, but christine lagarde explaining that the talks were a bit of collective therapy to move from the negative situation to a more positive approach. still, christine lagarde was cautious. >> there was not exactly the
same level of anxiety, but i think there was an equal level a collectived endeavor to identify the solution and the responses to the global economic situation. finance ministers and shanghai pledge to use all policy tools, monetary, fiscal, and structural, to stimulate growth and reiterated that monetary policy alone can't produced balanced growth. chancellorbrexit, osborne said the risks have risen and the universal view was that it would cause immediate short-term shock and instability , and that there would be a long-term cost to the world economy. japan companies continue to do with the aftermath of earthquakes. toyo to macy off rating profits macyed by -- toyota

it really was not in the saudi interest politically or economically to tie its hands at this stage. think a more interesting aspect is to think about the implications. had there been an agreement, there would have been positive formalization of the big players. saudi was agreeing that it would non-opecto replace production, particularly lower u.s. production, so theoretically leaving that own that as ability -- possibility. i think iran's production
increases will be slow going from here. they have done the easy part. from here on in, they have to infrastructure, so i don't think will need to increase production under that scenario. i think they will be happy to see production fall back and the market move towards a balance. yvonne: it seems like they're holding their ground, but what does it mean in terms of the overall rebalancing of the market. most people are saying that this deal that would have gone have seen the rebalancing speed up. how much is this delayed now? my feeling is that it probably has not delayed in that sense the agreement was about a contingency. if it had been adhered to, it would've put a cap on further production increases by the big
opec producers outside the saudis, kuwait, and probably iraq. the chances are that they are unlikely to increase production much anyway. end whole in the game -- in game has been to increase production faster -- limit production faster than they did in the 1980's. they want to bleed out the higher cost producers, and so as long as that continues to progress, there's not a lot of point in increasing production, so we are going to move towards a balance. thise: we've seen production freeze come a very much baked into the prices of equities, and we've regained all the losses we saw at the start of this year. now, back tos mean
a risk off until we see another meeting? i think this is very interesting today, because essentially the meeting created a bit of a conundrum for oil traders and the wider scenario in general. you had theand, majority of analysts saying that i did not think there would be an agreement, and even if there was, it would not make much of a difference. on the other hand, you had a stronger oil price. either the weight of money in the market is agreed with analysts, or possibly, and more likely, the market had not been about the doha meeting. it has been about an underlying improvement. the doha meeting was just a bit of a froth on the top. thatl be interested to see
equity and oil markets have had a limited reaction today. we might see a little bit of a pullback today, but continued to wash around these high levels we have established in recent weeks. thank you so much. i appreciate your insight. >> these of the stories making headlines around the world. story at aping brazil, live pictures there as lawmakers are on the verge of impeaching the president. the lower house is voting now, and then the motion goes to the senate. made a last-ditch appeal for support a head of the vote, having lost most of her allies in several members of her coalition government. the number of people killed and 246.or has risen to strucknitude 7.8 tremor

opponents seem certain to secure the majority needed. the issue would move to the senate, where a simple majority would see the president suspended while an impeachment trial is held. the world's finance chiefs have finished talks in washington on an upbeat note. had stabilized after a rocky start to 2016, and concerns have eased since february 2 20 meeting in shanghai. they remain cautious about brazil's political crisis, a possible brexit, and china slowdown. china property data coming out in a couple of minutes. we are monitoring the market open in shanghai and hong kong. a similar selloff as in the rest of the region. the hang seng down by almost 1%. we've been seeing oil producers under significant pressure.

the month of march. yvonne: thank you so much. after talks dragged on for hours, 10 hours longer than planned, but produced no common ground. let's go to our bloomberg commodities managing editor joining us live from singapore. great to see you. why no deal? was it because of iran? it was theectively country that did not turn up the killed off any hope of a deal. and advance, iran said it was not ready to cap output until production had reached pre-sanction levels. it called the notion of freezing its oil production is ridiculous. the day before the meeting, the iranian oil minister said he was not going to attend. deal would amount to self imposes sanctions on the country. day before time, the
the saudi arabians had said there would be no deal without consensus, without the presence of iran, so effectively any hopes of a deal was dead in the water. dead and the water, so what is next for oil? in june, also possible production free stocks, russians say possibly in october now, so what is next? these talks will not do much to affect supply and demand, two of the main champions of a potential freeze, russia and iraq, already producing close to record levels. for the time being, there is another issue that the markets may be overlooking, and this is the worker dispute in kuwait, opec's fourth biggest producer. production has declined by almost 60%, a significant drop in production, potentially a
much bigger deal. at the moment, the market is focused on the failure to reach an accord in doha. it does send a clear message to the market, and that is that global oil producers are unable to reach consensus, unable to have a concerted effort to address the prices. it is each country itself. but does meet in june, until then, it is effectively each country for itself. less optimism heading into those meetings as well. thank you so much. clearly not the best day to are then oil, so where best bets piling up at the moment? david is standing by the bloomberg. looking at the oil market and how it is trading at the moment. these harris bets are piling up. whenll get a better idea

downtrends. when you have rising oil prices, that would turn a little bit higher. very cool function. let's have a look as far as the oil prices concern. it is a fibonacci retracement to win prices collapsed in 2014. if we did have a deal, that would have nudged the price above the next level. obviously, we are further than that at the moment. analysts are saying the price match the go, one of them thanks that we could see a knee-jerk reaction down to 30. that was one of the stories this morning as well.
you see how divisive the talks are now, saudi in the middle, just really coming into play if you look at when the meetings will take place next on june 2. also, maybe late october, another possibility of talks. the relation between oil and stocks has been robust. that is when oil price bottomed in mid february. the green line is the energy index. if you want to break it down looking at the points gainers, the oil plays, and let's see where this goes next. it has been a barometer of risk appetite.

companies to rethink how they approach the issue. joining me now is the ceo. glad to have you here in hong kong. what does this technology bring to the industry? the storage and use today was designed more than 20 years ago. that is unheard of in data center technology. like smartphones transition to flash memory, we see the whole of data center storage going that way. the technology is faster, but more dense, more power efficient, and more reliable, so there is every reason to switch, especially since we have brought the cost down to where it is cheaper to buy. disruptioncean -- allows us to play for the number one position in this $24 billion market in the years to come. faster, websites, application response, but it is
still expensive and many companies eyes. you said the shift is changing, and you do see it, but what about the asia region? what is the demand like? the opportunity is fantastic all around the world. there is so much data that businesses need to get the job stunned. 80% of businesses felt they just grow the top line 20% by harvesting insights they already have in their existing data sets, but they can't get at that information fast enough because it is locked on these archaic, mechanical devices, so flash allows that transformation. costwe got started, flash four times as much as a mechanical disc, so we worked hard to shrink the amount you would need in duplication and compression, but the market has moved on. flash is cheaper than fast mechanical disk drives, so we
are in a situation where we free up a lot of dollars that customers can turn to other problems by swapping out this archaic technology with flash. reaching $1.6rket billion last year in 2014i should say, but still fractional in terms of the broader data storage. where do see growth going in the next 5-10 years? >> its growing much quicker than the overall data market. gardner says it is 60% annual growth rate. pure storage is growing at 100 for 50% -- at 150%. that positions us to play for the number one position in this market, which is why we got into it. yvonne: asia, and china and particular, we see mobile penetration huge and the mainland, alibaba, tencent, by do, really putting a lot of r&d

yvonne: the much touted meeting of oil ministers ended with no agreement. we are seeing futures down about 4.6%. we will look at more on the oil markets with neil beveridge. there was so much optimism leading up to this opec meeting. now, no deal. what comes next? neil: it is very disappointing that we would not get a deal with rate cuts coming into this. will come next is obviously the meeting in june where they will try again. to see if they can agree to cap production.
what else will happen in the oil markets is that we are moving toward a rebound of prices. demand is still relatively strong. is are in a natural rebound. yvonne: will we continue to see prices fall? if this rebalancing is now pushed a little bit longer, could we see more pressure on crude? neil: there could be a little bit more in the near term. i don't think we will retest to the level that we saw in february. where brent get down below 30. we are much closer than one worth the start of the year to this rebalancing. the pressure will take it down a bit.
yvonne: how you think the saudi's are dealing with all this? they are not too disappointed. they are still pumping at record levels. will they be able to overcome the geopolitical issues with iran? neil: they are suffering from low oil prices. the foreign exchange reserves are being depleted. the budget deficit. they can't do this indefinitely. they were the engineer of this. of low prices. non-opec trying to get producers to cut their production to bring about the rebalancing the market. the strategy is working but it is just taking an awful lot longer. i think they will continue to do what they're doing. waiting for that market to rebalance. just the geopolitical tension between iran and saudi arabia.
it does point to very deep divisions and will buy some people make "weaker. : is there an element of distrust year as well? he was not very confident that these non-opec members were going to follow the rules and cap production. we've seen history suggest that these talks don't always amount to much. the russians of raised production. that didn't really amount to much. if you look at who can really raise production, there is only saudi arabia and iran. as they continue to grow production in the near term. 10.5 million barrels a day, which is where they are today. you've been pretty bullish on several aspects of these

paul: it becomes riskier every day. had this happened a few months ago the prime minister would be in a much better position. it is really started to hurt him in the polls. you took of the latest poll the coalition of the government still has a lead. to 36% over the labour party. that is the second: a row where they have been leading. this kind of thing led them to oust the former prime minister from his job. prevailing 47% to 28% over his opponent. but he has seen his lead to cut in half since he took the job. the government has to get that budget out of the way on may 3 as well.

seeing is declines in oil sending the yen to a 17-month high, and that is really pressuring japanese stocks. it is a bit of a double whammy. it is not just energy down, but you are seeing all sectors. yeah, is this just a knee-jerk reaction? what can we expect, continuing to weigh on japanese stocks? is probably not what investors want to be seen. trying tohas been crawl back from declines earlier this year. while most other indexes across the globe are recovering from is stillnes, the topix down 14% because of the yen. while it is a story about oil, it's also so much about the yen,
too. we are getting into earnings season and that could help turn things around, but with the problems with oil and the yen weighing on stocks, it may be a tough fight. and yen, a double win me, also a triple when me for japan with this earthquake. how much of a factor has this disaster been? >> that's right. that is a huge factor today. it is very hard to distinguish what it is, how much each of these things is affecting the market. if you take something like to yota, it is greatly affected by the movements in the yen. so the oil developments are affecting toyota, but also the closing of the plant. if you are talking about a double whammy, toyota also gets
that. having to close the plant as well as honda, so it is having a widespread effect, not a good in japan for stocks. yvonne: thank you so much. clearly, not the best day to be long on oil, and the plunge in energy prices is having a much wider impact across asset classes. david's standing -- david standing by the bloomberg. center and everything else around. falls, people go into the yen, gold, and japanese bonds. i know this looks very confusing. what it shows you is have the options market is positioned across options and strike

record lows. don't be surprised. this is the 15 year japanese government bonds, if that actually falls below zero for the first time today, who knows. we are touching record lows for this market. another thing i want to point out is this rally in the equity market. we have a chart every hour on the bloomberg this is one of them. oil prices bottomed out on february of 11 or 12, depending on where you are in the world. more importantly, this is when we started to see the energy outperform and lift the overall index. inverse, yen, very nice chart shows you that, again, there on your bloomberg. fibonacci, simple
going back to june 2014, when the price first collapsed, if you will, from where we are at the moment. if we did get a deal, easily that would have been support. whether or not you agreed with that excluding iran that a deal would have been helpful is not important. the important thing is that iran is needed for the deal, given what the saudis are saying. very stiff resistance levels of the moment. to supply and demand, with the russian energy minister said was that if we did get a deal, that would be pushed forward by six months, the correction in the supply glut we have. now that we don't, were looking at mid-2017 that the market corrects and we do see the market clear up supply and

property-led stabilization, construction services in real estate services leading those industry breakdowns on saturday. of course, the property data was so solid, the rebound spreading , so theand more cities quarter on quarter numbers do take some gloss off the strong was thembers, but it strong credit strong industrial output and strong investment numbers that do seem to suggest the economy has more mentum -- more momentum that many people feared. yvonne: has the economy turned the corner? >> the focus is on property and whether these gains we have seen, big gains, shenzhen up 50% shanghai looking strong, if that filters through more and more cities, then you would have to say that the economy may have stabilize, if not picked up again. , a lot of debt
is going into this. there has been a lot of fiscal stimulus, monetary stimulus, new credit numbers have been surging , and can that continue? that is the big open question. yvonne: still headwinds there. thank you so much. it hastick with china, accused international ratings agencies of biased after s&p and moody's lowered their sovereign outlook. we heard from the finance minister speaking at a press conference in washington after the weekend meeting of his g-20 counterparts and central bankers. we have the full story on this. what did the finance minister have to say? downgrades happen weeks ago, but now they are responding. >> initially the reaction was we don't care because the market impact is next to nothing, so it is interesting seeing the strong language coming through from the finance minister, taking the opportunity at the g-20 meeting
to air his grievances, if you will, saying that this is bias in these downgrades to china sovereign debt outlook because he says china's sovereign debt has historically performed better than what s&p and moody's is giving it credit for. gdplso points to the strong growth numbers that have just come through on friday, saying 6.7% as well within the toernment's target of 6.5% 7%, and it is still strong growth. that topline number coming down as double-digit growth as recent as 2015, but is pointing to that saying 6.7% is nothing to be scoffed at. of course, that's not necessarily what the credit rating agencies are most worried about. they are worried about the structure drag of china's debt to ddp soared from 164% in 2008 two a must to 50% last year. servicing that debt is a third of gdp, and that is if principal
and interest it paid on time. we have seen the drag of that on debt on growth. that has alarmed part of the market. we have also seen a huge surge in new lending, creating more leverage, record mending earlier the $5ar, wonders if billion of aggregate financing that march number coming through a couple of days ago one of those highs readings and blowing at expectations a lot of that momentum going into the property sector, so what happens when you , and was saying that begins to drag when china hits debt capacity. the finance minister did acknowledge that there is risk to growth as well, right? he said the aging population is going to be a downside risk,
many concerns that china is facing the exact predicament that china has had in recent years, but also said that to be fair, s&p, moody's, , the rockyf transitioning if china keeps -- debt.rowth with on top of the demand-side measures, there are supply-side reforms underway, reforms in terms of how to restructure that debt. he said, look, things are in the pipeline, it's just that you guys may not know the details about it just yet. yvonne: thank you so much. coming up, production halts or big-name japanese companies after the earthquakes and the impact it is having on those businesses. we are live in tokyo after this short break. you are watching "trending business".
