million barrels a day. signaled it is ready to cut production more than expected, promising a reduction of 450,000 barrels a day. russia and other non-opec nations pledged to cut production by 558,000 barrels a day from january. i have to say that the situation is different as we go country by country. i was very pleasantly surprised to see so many countries respond to the invitation. haveof the countries you joined, and it's very important to say they join voluntarily so no one is going to force them to reduce production, it's their own will. most of these countries will be taking active measures to reduce production and that's very important. ande wanted to contribute,
6:04 pm
as much is that reality of the transformation of mexico was also accounted for. so, this is also part of the process of and as much is production decline that we have experienced over the last 10 years, and what we -- to a managed process, klein. -- climb. >> let's bring our energy markets editor in to talk about this more. good morning. non-opec producers agreed to cut production over the weekend. saudi arabia had a separate announcement as well. take us through what happened here. >> hi, yvonne. quite significant news over the weekend. non-opec producers agreed to cut production by 558,000 barrels a day. this is led by russia, they will cut output by 300,000 barrels a day. you have countries like mexico and catholic stance or part of this agreement trade immediately after this was announced, saudi arabia's oil minister got up and
6:05 pm
said saudi arabia was willing to go beyond the cuts they agreed to november 30 in vienna. a, clearly there is commitment by saudi arabia and these other countries to really get supply and demand back into balance. this shows over the weekend, it's the first agreement between opec and non-opec reducers in about 15 years to scale back production. you have a coordinated effort by some of the world's largest producers, including saudi arabia, russia, iran, and iraq, a lot ofside geopolitical differences to cut back on production and get supply and demand act into -- and demand back into balance. ramy: what are the a lot of geopolitical differences to cut back on production and get supply and demand act into -- rs deal, and does this balance the market? ison: in the short-term it quite bullish, we are seeing prices rise this morning. there are a couple risks. the first is compliance. opec has said they will cut production in the past, and
6:06 pm
oftentimes they don't cut as much as they say they will cut. their own members cheat. this extends to beyond opec. in 2001, russia committed to cutting but the next year they boosted production. we will have to see how committed they are to compliance, and if the countries cut back as much as they say they will cut. the second risk for this deal is really global inventories. are still at record levels. in the u.s., inventories at about 400 86 million barrels. that's about 25% higher than the five-year average. before you get the market really balancing, you will have to have refineries work through this global glut and get the inventories down, and then you might have a more balanced market. but the refineries will have to work through that before you get to that point. clark, a quick check of what is happening in terms of oil trade up 5% in london trading. in -- aaron clark in

6:09 pm
ceo rex tillerson. mr. trump has called him quote, a world-class player. our reporter joins us on the line from washington. tillerson'ss -- candidacy is already facing pushback's. >> this is true, the candidacy is facing pushback. tillerson has been the ceo of exxon mobil for the last decade or so. is not exactly what i would call a favorite of the democratic already -- party. they are concerned with the fact that he is a nontraditional pick, and the sense that he leads an oil company, he has not served in government with her, and there's concern about the fact that he has close business ties with vladimir putin of russia, not exactly seen as an ally of the united states, although trump has said he would like to have closer ties with russia. and the fact that they said you
6:10 pm
would want someone who has served in government before. yvonne: it seems there could be trouble when it comes to winning that confirmation, if that will be the choice for the president-elect. who else has been considered for the role? has narrowed his list down, according to my sources, to tillerson at the top of the list right now trump has suggested he's probably -- is also considering senator bob corker of tennessee, the chairman of the foreign relations committee. he's also been considering mitt romney, the republicans' 2012 nominee for president. he's had a rocky relationship called him trump, essentially a con man and lots of other negative things last year when trump was running for president. romney brings a lot of experience to the job, and he is respected reasonably
6:11 pm
well by democrats that he would have a better shot at getting in than rex tillerson. republicans do control the senate. they need 50 votes for confirmation. yvonne: trump and tweeted out, stay tuned when asked if -- when it comes to that secretary of state pick. there are two major deals in the works as we enter a new trading week. one is a historic agreement between boeing and iran. the other is in the media space. su keenan is taking a look on these deals. because it has a lot to do with rupert murdoch expanding his horizon. reporter: the deal would allow fox to buy the part of s tv, the u.k. pay for tv channel that it doesn't already own and many would say that murdoch has been long wanting to have full control of sky, and it was
6:12 pm
always a question of when, not if. that overhe the time the weekend, 21st century fox and sky executives work to nail down the deal, preliminary version of it was announced friday. 85-year-old media baron and his son, who is heavily involved in fox in the u.s., said to be very closely involved in negotiations over the weekend and the key issue apparently in these final details that are being nailed down is whether to make an outright bid for sky, or what is called a scheme of arrangement. that is a different kind of structure deal that does involve the u.k. courts but also might make it easier to win over the smaller shareholders who may not want to sell. according to reports on the u.k., there are many that may be resistant to the move. again, that's the key issue here, if you look at the stock,
6:13 pm
toy for century fox. -- 21st century fox. it has been moving higher in keynt weeks, and again, the issue is whether they will go with the straight ahead bid or whether they will go with a structured arrangement. from 27% inshot up london on friday. we could have a deal nailed down by mid-week. ramy: let's get to that talk about the boeing and iran deal. the first of its kind since 1979. a generation here. looking at the lens of the u.s. corporation with the rise of the trump white house, one political potential turmoil here. $16.6 billion deal, the first time boeing will be iran if it goes

6:19 pm
meeting, 94% saying it could be a rise of 25. do you agree -- if the u.s. economy ready? reporter: the u.s. economy is right for a raise. it has been right for years. of course nobody else will be moving immediately. i think it we change the tone for central banks next year, so we should see less -- as we have seen this year and central banks start into hike. as a reaction to weaker currencies in the run-up to the fed hike. there's one concern that you might have for the u.s. economy, what might that be? reporter: my concern for the u.s. economy is basically increasing long-term rates not
6:20 pm
related to growth, and related also to to inflation, the fact that it might be harder than we think to finance fiscal expenditure package. and that is by no means certain, but it's likely. would be a very different world. that is number one for the u.s. economy today. yvonne: talking about china, you are saying growth will remain miraculously stable. justw exports, cpi, ppi blow out of the water. it seems the economy is on a better footing right now short-term, good for dealing with debt, the long-term, people say consumption could take a back step when it comes to being a key driver for growth. reporter: they have done everything they could for growth.
6:21 pm
affect long-term consumer decisions, as well as private investment. it's government driven growth model, more than even investment driven. it's really government driven. that's why it will be there, but it will be costly. it's not only about leverage, but outflows. we see they have realized that training the outflows -- draining the outflows do matter. they basically change the money supply. they see what the money supply can do for them in terms of growth. that is why they can't be known. their constraint for the medium-term is any money they flag into the economy might not actually work.
6:22 pm
yvonne: given what the fed could do on wednesday, what is this mean for em asia and central banks in the region? is this wave of monetary easing over? i think the way for easiness over in the region, ncertain even korea is u because we could see pressures, even notuld be ok having the -- i think it's over. pboc is a different animal because of the controls. it's not so much about how they can be linked from the fed, but how costly that might be. capital controls are very costly for an economy. they absolutely dislocate the way in which capital is allocated. that is again very costly.
6:23 pm
having increasing costs for the economy. how long can that go? that is the question. life will be harder for the pboc with the hike. no doubt about it. yvonne: great to have you here. up next, leadership change in new zealand as john key steps down. a look at what is on the agenda for new prime minister bill english. this is bloomberg. ♪

6:34 pm
comes to the median cost of homes in new zealand. that will be something for the new prime minister to deal with. i want to show you one of the losers when it comes to the earlier session. it is about energy. the top gainers are these oil producers, domestic oil suppliers. origin energy up by 3.5%. some of these explorers up by 2.6%. you can see that really carrying through, oil prices surge from 15% since the end of november, when that first supply deal was flagged by opec. really the big gainers when it comes to the australian session. conversely, we have these all that certain fed tightening trajectory. trade, risk appetite still continuing. we are seeing investors fleeing gold funds, gold etf's and quite a rapid price. the at the lowest since
6:35 pm
very 20 straight days of contraction when it comes to assets. you can see these are the biggest loser so far. these are the top losers when it comes to the asx. this ist a quick check, what we are seeing. this is what is going to continue driving risk appetite in the session, up 5% when it comes to wti, getting close to $55 a barrel and brent looking at gains of 5%. yvonne? yvonne: thank you. it is that saudi surprise. it isarabia has signaled ready to cut oil production more than expected, that surprise announcement came after russia and other non-opec countries promised to reduce output from january. in a bloomberg exclusive, alexander novak said political support was critical in getting the deal through.
6:36 pm
although a very important role has been played by the ministers, but i think the key role should be given to our , and what is mr. putin's role in the deal, who has been very important for the deal to be done. having this political support which i just spoke about, this have significantly helped us to build a very trustful relationship with our partners from opec, and from non-opec countries, especially from the country of saudi arabia. >> are these non-opec cuts genuine? >> i have to say that the situation is different. very pleasantly surprised to see so many countries respond to the invitation by opec and russia to participate and help stabilize the markets.
6:37 pm
it's very important to say the countries joined voluntarily, so no one will force them to reduce production. most of these countries will be taking active measures to reduce production, and that is important. getho's going to make up to 600,000 barrels a day target? >> it's important to understand that we are not dogmatic. day was notels per the only possible result for us. there would be different decline basis, and i think most likely would be able to achieve higher than the 560 which we have spoken about was not the only possible result for us. today. another key thing which i would like to highlight is the agreement is open for others to join. at this time there are 11 countries here, but maybe others will join.
6:38 pm
i believe there are many like this. what is important is that the doors are open and the president has been made. and now we have a framework to act jointly. >> the saudi oil masters that he's willing to cut even more, maybe below 10 million barrels a day. will russia cut more than 300,000? >> at this moment we have signed months, the first stage which would last until the end of the first half. the framework allows us to extend the duration of the agreements. we will be monitoring very months,closely the effects of s agreement on the markets, complaints of countries, and we will be making a decision whether other cuts and extensions will be necessary upon completion. >> when this russia begin their curbing? >> that's the first stage of the cuts you would be able to see as early as january. i would like to see -- companies

7:11 pm
it was agreed to disagree as to which government that was, but for relations,e trade relations, between mainland and taiwan to grow. now though, donald trump is saying this is not necessarily sacrosanct and comes after that phone call he took from the taiwanese president, the closest any president in taiwan has gotten to official recognition in washington, so this is an area of concern from the chinese perspective, trump saying he wants to use this to get a better trade deal with china. trump has seems like backed down. how is beijing likely to react? to get official reaction to this latest comment from trump on the china relationship. we did see a comment in the state media calling donald trump
7:12 pm
a novice and suggesting he was being manipulated by conservative forces, and saying he was fickle and may go back on his word. the one chinas policy is nonnegotiable from the beijing perspective. it is a redline for them. they have heard from trump on not only this, but also tariffs, labeling china a currency manipulator. a tactic their military buildup in the south china sea and for not working more closely with the u.s. on tackling the issue of north korea. on the other side of that is trump offering to put up an seensador to china who is by china as a friend of the country, so mixed messages and their policy makers having to work out which direction he will go in when he gets into the white house. yvonne: great to have you.

fiscal policy remains to be that elephant in the room for the fed. >> she will be quite measured. she guided at the beginning of this year that they would do a couple of rate hikes, and they did not do that. there has never been a reason not to raise rates in the u.s. exct the external environment. tvonne: what about the do plot? will we see a tightening? >> that will be one to watch. more importantly, the u.s. dollar. you can see that in the bond markets as they widen a little bit, not terribly, but at little bit. it is how quickly the dollar appreciates. we have come quickly from 100 in the yen to 115. we have had the renminbi depreciate. so the pace will be the most
7:19 pm
important point for emerging-market investors. yvonne: if we see a shift in the plot, it could it reignite the rally? >> it is interesting for emerging markets because you have strong dollar, also strong oil prices and strong commodities, china growth ok, so it is quite balanced. we would add to emerging-market assets after the second rate hike or another strong run in the dollar. it is a wait and see for emerging markets. yvonne: after the second hike policy, back into em. what other properties do you see in this region? >> china is not performing that well. emerging markets have underperformed developed markets by 10%, but the most significant thing in markets is this

7:21 pm
before opec, but after trump. we reviewed our forecasts after the election. we are reasonably comfortable, but there is probably an upside in the short-term. a stronger dollar and rates going up, that we are comfortable there. in the short term, there will be havee on the news, but we two have compliance with it, and saudi is still producing 10.1 million barrels a day. we need to look at what the figures are in early january -- early february, to see if people are in compliance with what they are saying. ramy: to see if this has teeth are not to you are looking at earnings forecasts below-market. what sect yours are you looking ahead to to see if there is any benefit their -- sectors are you looking ahead to to see if there
