yvonne: 10 to look into the crystal ball now at what we can expect in the asian markets in 2016. thank you so much for joining us now as we count down to the end of the year. what a year it has been. we going to see a christmas rally? >> it is hard to predict. right now, all eyes are what is going to happen next week with the fed rate. but as we look at asia, we are keeping positive. as we go into 2016, this is for a number of reasons. this is technical where we still and weeveloped market are looking at reform which year -- which we are very positive on and lastly, evaluation --
lastly, valuation. given that we have seen broad liquidity in china and emerging markets. yvonne: emerging markets are one to watch. with account into the fed, is it pretty much a done deal that it is going to be happening, is this going to continue to support the dollar, or has that kind of peaked a little bit? are we going to see market assets take a break, finally? medha: what we're seen so far is that the feds will look at the rate hikes as long as the details hold and are good. the u.s. and china is an important part of the process, but for now, we will be in line with what the consensus is expecting. definitely, it is pointing to a rate hike. that will be up bit of a breather for the market. it is really what happens afterwards. we don't think that the fed is
going to be aggressive about that. yvonne: is it good to buy with the dollar now than before the fed moves? dollar can a strong help out with emerging markets and you've got to be very sensitive and look at it from this perspective. ringket,the rig it -- what do you think? the asianfor now,currency exporters will continue to be out of favor. so if we look at singapore, hong kong, or other countries nearby, they will continue to be out of favor. we will continue to look at china over the long-term, and we like health care across the board. india stands out as an investment destination, especially considering commodity prices. so you have discussed to be very
selective. yvonne: when you talk about china, you said you are still into the traditional stocks. economy, butpeed you still see some opportunity in traditional, why? medha: well, we see two types of interesting companies, one is a long-term training of the chinese consumer and the rise of the middle class. rebalancing the economy, but that is technically a long-term trend. economy,look at the there are pockets that we are starting to see, for example in property now, where this is happening read there are enterprises -- happening. are enterprises where we are seeing very good quantity assets, and even a small change would mean a big change in efficiencies. but you've got to be very, very selective. we are seeing efficiency
approving, industrial upgrading, those kinds of things, so really, there is a mix of new economy and old economy. yvonne: in terms of 2016, what do you think about the policy and the applications there? -- the implications there? aerybody was hoping for fourth quarter rebound, but can the data confirm any of that so far? is a gritty be any future for that in 2016? medha: china is more important right now than the rest of asia. we see more fiscal stimulus coming in from asia, and that is what asia central banks are going to look towards. definitely it has the bullets are the ammunitions to move ahead, as at that is good to be very positive for asia. yvonne: all right, medha samant joining us from fidelity investment. thank you so much. >> syrian opposition groups

yvonne: this is "trending business." welcome back. talks enteredate their last lap today. there is hope that they will see a deal. >> delegates have been working overnight in france to try and get closer to a graying to a climate deal -- to agreeing to a climate deal. there are literally hundreds of areas where delegates didn't agree, but now we are narrowing that down. there are areas where language aret agreed upon and there six areas where they need to come down to just one clause
where there are multiple clauses, and that is down from 30. these areas are narrowing down. what are the obligations of wealthy countries versus less-wealthy countries? which countries should pay for contributions to climate-related damages? these are good questions. also, how best to reduce fossil fuel emissions and should countries disclose more or less about the efforts that there are making towards tackling climate change. they are still hoping to reach an agreement by the end of friday in france, so there are still several hours to go. this agreement would come into effect in 2020, and it could possibly help cap writes -- cap rising temperatures. it could also help reduce carbon emissions as well. this agreement would need
classification for 55 countries were 70% of global greenhouse gas emissions are made. these are areas of where it needs to be divided. this could still mean that the agreement could go forward without some of the world's biggest polluters cover china, india, and the u.s., for example. what would wonder this do for change? yvonne: yes, this could cause a problem. in terms of leicester, what did this year have different this time around? there was a flexibility in the way that countries are a lot to set strategies, for example, reducing carbon emissions. countries are now allowed to set their own strategies and now have put forward voluntary contributions for it.
so that was an area of controversy in 1997, but perhaps more countries are willing to in gauge in this, but of course, environment groups are saying that the targets aren't perhaps hard enough and maybe going forward, there won't be enough push towards achieving longer-term goals as well. there are issues were maybe you have to compromise in one area in order to achieve the first global deal on climate change at all in the first place. but of course, critics are saying that it is still not enough. yvonne: all right, plenty of people are talking about this. let's see how this is playing out on social media. shery, what do you see? shery: celebrities at the climate talks, for example, we had alec baldwin and arnold
schwarzenegger at a meeting with government delegates. ofhad him tweet a picture himself with the foreign french minister, you can see him there. he had also tweeted out certain comments about the climate talks. "i of his tweets saying, love this, the deal has the rally of the century, and the u.s. should fight for this." he has been trending on twitter. we also have big organizations, ,ike greenpeace usa, tweeting "will the big climate agreement from #cop21 keep also fueled in the ground?" tweeted ,ef --ghting#climatechange

pressure,posts under a little bit of a rebound. >> economic data is likely going to see two different pictures. malcolm, tell us about what these figures are expecting. big reports, we are expecting strength in retail. the strongest reading this year. 11.1% increase. according to the median forecast . by contrast, we are looking for industrial output to remain sluggish. which was around that week is level since 2008.
on the investment front which has been a key pillar, that slow down keeps going. we are looking to year to date figure of 10.1%. we have seen a slew of mixed data for sure. the soft trade report was a big thing. what is the health now of the economy as we wrap up? >> it doesn't look to healthy or two bad. any hope for a fourth quarter bounce seem to have been --. maybe the fiscal stimulus would start to kick in and we would see a pickup. that doesn't seem to be happening according to the data so far. the other one we are watching for, we are not sure yet. the credit aggregate. they was -- there was a surprising lack of lending last reading.
a rebound in november is forecast by economists. that could be a good sign. economists are expecting this grind to continue, the views are mixed. will the stimulus pick up or will property overhang? it remains to be seen. yvonne: probably know hard landing. >> few were expecting that. there is still plenty of firepower. the government has plenty of room to spend if they want to. there should be plenty of policy options if they do that. china is hoping increased for investment may offer the currency that fell to a four-year low this week. our investors losing interest in buying chinese bonds? let's bring in one expert.
what is going on here? debt appears to be losing its appeal. >> it is not going according to plan. we have seen closing at the four-year low over the past few advantage is at a 4-5-year low. that is faster, eroding the power of chinese debt. that will probably have capital flows from asia. >> we have seen the year in decline a fear of bit since that decision. is this a signal of policy change? >> i'm not sure that is what is happening. it is nine days since we have
had the imf decision. propping up the currency, they are trying to have to relieve some pressure so there is no run on the yuan next week. yvonne: are they going to give then? >> one must understand that the prime minister has little option but to allow it to depreciate. exports are down. the economy is slowing. announced has economic growth over the next five years. to do that, one has little option but to allow a depreciation. the evaluations are a strong word. >> a soft weakening may be. thank you so much for joining us. on some other stories, three chinese nationals arrested

double he hopes to investment banking revenue over the next few years. japanese prime minister shinzo abe will assign deals on defense and high-speed rails during a three-day visit to india. now viais joining us skype. great to see you. he is helping to cash in on this personal friendship. >> this is a trap where we are expecting this incredible chemistry to pay off. a deal that everyone is going to be watching for, to build the first high-speed rail grade. it would be a coup for japan, for india it is important financially. it would link mumbai with a major city. another deal we are expecting to
be announced is an agreement for greater defense equipment cooperation between the two nations. india and japan have already .een drawing closely together this would be an extension of that. yvonne: it seems the relationship has been the best it has ever been. what is drawn in the and japan closer? chemistry,om the there are two major reasons. one is china. both countries share apprehension. japan is barring the east china sea with china. they have a war along the northern border, and more recently the expansion into the indian ocean region, they help build ports in pakistan. that is the geopolitical reason. investmentery good
partners. india has incredible needs. japanese countries are good at those projects. japan brings deep pockets. yvonne: there seem to be some parallels as well. what makes japan and attractive partner? india wanted to draw investment into infrastructure from the u.s., it would have to find that investment from american companies which japan is good at. getting the government to work closely together. the japanese government will open doors to get these companies to invest in india. another big reason, india is making made in india campaign. japanese companies are looking for new manufacturing bases.
yvonne: welcome back. these are the stories making headlines around the world. they passed on american gun store. the semiautomatic was made by serbia and deliver to an online dealer in 2013. it is not clear how the gun ended up in france. several paris weapons were made. they were all delivered legally to customers.
the climate talks in paris into their final day with a draft deal that leaves other issues unresolved. the draft includes an hundred places where decisions still have to be made including multiple options in brackets or blank spaces. 190 countries are trying to agree. requirescessful 1997 only rich nations to do so. north korea has hinted it has developed an atomic weapon and it is ready to use it. they have said the country is a powerful nuclear state, ready to decimate a -- detonate a hydrogen bomb. the united states and others say it is unlikely he has such a capability.
thai airways has narrowly avoided being barred from flying into the eu but regulators have cap banks on noticed over the safety standards. for more let's head over to singapore. really great to see you. it seems like thailand has avoided being on this safety blacklist out of the eu. what is the major fallout that was averted? >> the impact might not have been as great. europeanave a large union. impacted.irs would be the impact if it does come down later will be minimal.
hopefully if they are able to implement this from the plans they have been starting to implement they will be able to avoid it altogether. i don't think the impact is as big as people say it will be anyway. the eu and the u.s. regulators have singled out thailand, in terms of the issues , that is a serious issue. what does this mean in terms of credibility in thailand? >> it doesn't mean anything about the individual airlines. , itcivil aviation authority -- where the fleet in thailand nearly doubled in size. there was new airlines launched.
forthe amount of resources inspectors didn't increase. that has been a major issue raised. what has happened is they have to bring in outside expertise to meet the international standard. the airlines themselves, it doesn't mean anything individually. it just means that the government doesn't have the infrastructure and resources in place. because of that these issues have been raised and are being dealt with. yvonne: some issues that may have fallen through the crack's. they talk about expert seeking how -- help. has this change your view? what reforms do you want to see out of this. wherwill there be enough? >> i think it is already in the
works. it just takes time to implement. they have been bringing in people from the outside, starting to process. it takes time. but a lot of the inspectors actually that used to have -- they took jobs within the industry of the airlines. unfortunately the government was in offering to keep these people a few years ago. they are going to be enticed back or required to turn back to the government to help the industry overall. it sounds kind of like a backwards step but actually it is a positive step. if the industry has to deal with this, all the airlines will benefit. they are cooperating with this initiative. over time they will be able to resolve this. it just takes time. the eu is patient and will wait. in the meantime there is some
impact for north asia expansion from the startup carriers, which is asia ex. they have been impacted by these issues because they were in the startup phase and were going to expand that were unable to do so. besides that, the impact has been minimal and thailand is starting to address these issues. hopefully next year this issue will be resolved and the airlines can go back to shredded jewsheir without this overhanging them. yvonne: we have 40 seconds. i wanted to get your outlook for these carriers. you talk about thai airways. or continue to see upside 2016. what about for the other ones, such as thai air asia and bangkok airways?
>> both should see improvements. they are already profitable despite challenging markets. they have had one of the highest margins in southeast asia this year and last year. they have continued to be a strong performer. a lot of people don't know about them. they are benefiting from inbound growth from china. they are in a good position. they will see an improvement. fuel prices are down. it takes time for the restructuring to be implemented and cost reductions a are targeting to be implemented and achieved. a big question is how will the market from a demand perspective the next year? it has a lot of fluctuations year to year. it affects their ability to be profitable again. it will hinge on that.
what the challenges in the market and the competition will be difficult. they nevertheless should see improvements in a cheer. the carriers are the domestic carriers. they are exposed to the domestic market. they have seen intense competition. yvonne: great. thank you. we appreciate it. that's all the time we have. thank you for joining us. paymentp next, problems. more reaction coming up. ♪
