china. take us through some of the market action. said there was muted reaction in the market today with china's msci inclusion, but of course it's been long suspected, they tried three times already and failed. here you can see over the last year a runoff of investors piling into a share etf's before the decision. we talk a lot about buy the rumor, sell the news. today it was by the rumor and save the news a little bit, so you can see that investors have been waiting, maybe some pulled out and maybe some got in, but there had already been a big position here. also, take a look at the risk radar here, i want to start off with oil because that will be one big market mover. as it was yesterday and overnight, oil coming down. you see crude right now, that

1:06 am
speaking in an exclusive interview with bloomberg. global news, 24 hours a day, powered by more than 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. stories on there .loomberg at top it's been all about the msci inclusion today. wishing a little bit of fluctuation coming through. up by .4%. hong kong is weaker and we've seen weakness coming through in a lot of the energy players asx 200, downhe by 1.4%. toshiba coming through in its board meeting today saying it has picked -- preferred bidders for its member chip business. toshiba down by 1.2% in late trade. bhp billiton and rio tinto not only in correlation with the energy space but iron ore and hase has been news that rio
1:07 am
-- we had a little bit of weakness from qbe, falling the most in ten-month. fourth time lucky for the inclusion of a shares. showing that what we've seen in terms of these shenzhen and outperforming the overall dow jones index which is the clean line and the purple line which is the shanghai composite. but a lotbolic move of analysts say it's just the start and were expecting to see more inclusion of the age shares in coming years. thanks very much, juliette saly bear from hong kong on the asian markets. our top story is in china where the msci is designed to take the countries equities global including them in its indexes.
1:08 am
it gives the market a bigger role in the world stage than it already has. 222 a shares will be included next year comprising .7% of the global emerging markets gauge. fernandez saidy it would be focused on expanding the inclusion of mid-caps. >> the next inclusion is probably going to have a larger inclusion factor. and potentially as well be mid-caps, thehe second category is something we are very focused on. we would like to expand the universe of shares that are available to international investors. brian.or joined from what clinched the inclusion on the fourth try on the msci? >> for time lucky. basically the reason this has
1:09 am
taken so long is that msci's main issue boils down to china and the control that the government has here in the market. obviously regulators and authorities here have an outside level of control in the markets here which was anathema to some msci investors and index compilers. so what has changed? on the access level, china withd up a second link shenzhen and hong kong. reduce the list of stocks included in the end and relegated mostly big cap stops that they focused on. also addressing one big saying for international investors is the trading suspension issue which is quite prevalent here in china. they limited the ones they were
1:10 am
including, the stocks that had not been suspended for more than 50 days to address that concern. lastly, the other issue was china's assistance, another issue to do with control. i've got to pre-approve investment products linked to its stock. some of that process has apparently been loosened and simplified to msci's liking. anna: so that some of the detail of what they changed. what it means for the main and market, the allocation within the msci emerging markets, some say is more symbolic than meaningful. what does it mean for chinese mainland stock? >> you are right, we're seeing that in the reaction today. it's not an open arms sort of rally here that we are seeing. the index is barely up in shanghai and shenzhen. ultimately i think it's a good sign.
1:11 am
china's main and market, while it is the world's second big with $7 trillion of equity value, is still a very closed shop. this opens it up to pension funds, mutual funds, investors that track in index is. i think it will be a professionalizing force. it will give more scrutiny to some of the companies here and obviously it cannot be forgotten that this is a market dominated by we investors, which means it can be quite predictable. there can be heard mentality going on. the introduction of global investors with different perspectives and potentially more sophisticated strategies, so i think it's probably only a good thing. now here in the christophe donay. thanks for coming in. let me ask you, how important is
1:12 am
the msci to institutional investors? creates a: it benchmark of chinese stocks. considering that we could expect probably broader inflows in the chinese stocks. the introduction of chinese stocks in the msci index reflects .7% only. the chinese equities could become more prone to volatility, according to international stocks. and probably more prone to volatility according to the chinese economic cycle,
1:13 am
including the chinese earnings cycle as well. this is one of the reasons why, the introduction of chinese equities in the in this ci is marginal. the chinese authorities want to -- at the end of the 1990's, when we experience growth, creating huge volatilities with a huge inflow and huge outflows creating the crash. the chinese authorities a very the introduction of chinese equities at this stage of this story. ask you,as going to what does this do to risk, because in 2014 we saw the big
1:14 am
boom and bust in chinese markets. as our colleague was saying, we get more institutional investors ,n china, maybe that's a good but maybe crises in china will be transmitted around the world a little more because of this. our does that overstate it? your question is absolutely right. , what the chinese authority want since the beginning of the capitalist story of the chinese economy and chinese markets is exactly to what happened at the end of the 1990's when we experienced a huge inflow going into the country, going into the asian equities, creating a bottle and then a crash. chineseexactly what the authority wants to avoid at the time. the chinese economy is stable
1:15 am
because since 2008, in the wake of the subprime crisis, what we observed is credit growth is running 4%-5% a year faster than the normal gdp growth, meeting we are in excess credits for a long run, creating over the next five years or something like that. the possibility for a sharp correction in the chinese economy and a sharp correction on the chinese equity as well with a consequence of the international equity market as well. new story.a big thank you so much for joining us to discuss that. he will stay with us here on daybreak because there's a lot more to go through. here are some of the highlights of the day ahead. in london, it's the queens speech and 11:30 u.k. time.

the blood. the most inping four years while crude stored on takers reached a 2017 height is month. according to the american petroleum institute, u.s. crude inventories drop by 2.70 2 million barrels last week. u.s. government data is forecast to show of 1.2 million barrel decline. toshiba has picked a group led by japanese investors as the preferred bidder for its memory chip business. toshiba said it's an injury to final agreement by shareholders meeting on june 28 to close the transaction by march. the sale or bring much needed cash into the market to make up for losses in its nuclear operation. alibaba chairman has said china's consumption will be the engine of development for the next 30 years. he added his company is not trying to compete with amazon in the u.s.. but amazon is a great company. they did a fantastic job in america and the world, but they
1:21 am
are an e-commerce company. we are not an e-commerce company. we help others to become e-commerce. we believe every company can be amazon. juliette: that is your bloomberg business flash. thanks very much, juliette saly out of hong kong. prime minister theresa may will publish a legislative program heavy on brexit in the queens speech shorn of had entry unlikely to be light on domestic controversy. westminster.is in what will we hear about brexit, and just to clarify for those who are not from the u.k., this is a speech from theresa may at the queen simply reads out. is that the case? yes, that is exactly right. the queen reads it, but the government rights it. that is essentially what we are talking about. theresa may that
1:22 am
she will respond with humility and resolved to the results of the most recent election. it's the first big test of her conservative minority government. there could be clues as to how big is -- how ambitious her plans are. in order to be sure the queens speech will be passed by a vote in the comments next week, that's the timeline here. 11:30 we get the queen delivering the speech, then follows the debate of the next few days and next week, wednesday and thursday we get the vote on what the queens speech contained. interesting to see if we get any conversation.p those conversations are ongoing. we were expecting a week or so ago that we would have the answers to just what they demanded in exchange for their support. we have not got that yet.
1:23 am
no doubt there are questions about the amount of investment and taxation in ireland. it could be the queen's speech will be very general to allow it to be passed. matt: i have a question on the national mood through the actions of the region here. to wear ais not going crown as she normally does. will come in a car instead of horses, which is also different from normal. is this kind of o-matic, the is itf pageantry, implemented of the queens lack of enthusiasm for this upgrade, and the second question, how much would that matter to the british people? it's a doubt very much statement about enthusiasm for the government. the queen has met and worked with many prime minister stating back to winston churchill. she is quite used to governments of all different flavors.
1:24 am
we are told the reason were seeing less pageantry is because of the closeness of this ceremony to other state events that require a lot of pageantry. she will be in a car and will not wear the crown. it's not entirely unprecedented. similar decisions were made at the beginning of world war ii and also a 1974 during labor protests. news,we do have breaking also fascinating. according to the new york times, travis kalanick has resigned as the ceo of uber. we had heard that he would be stepping away from his daily role as ceo. it sounded more like a sabbatical. the new york times is reporting travis kalanick has resigned as the cbo of cooper, obviously a $60 billion company that has been it hard by allegations of sexual harassment as well as
1:25 am
some other issues dealing with the press that have been problematic for investors. we knew that managers, some of the top managers were going to leave and some would be taking a leave of absence. the new york times again reporting that travis kalanick has resigned as the ceo of cooper. we will continue -- the ceo of uber. i want to get back to the european picture. stop -- christophe donay still with us. an election that most people saw as promising in france before that and one that was not disastrous before that. lesson, ortical risk do you see the possibility that it sort of rises up again this year? christophe: terms of the political situation, i would say that hopefully political trouble , maybe except in
1:26 am
the u.k.. i'm not a british strategist, but from abroad, the picture from the political u.k. situation seems something like it's in trouble. the second thing to mention that the the brexit is cost is very painful. the economic cost is very painful. is supposed to continue to slow down. don't forget that the u.k. economy was supposed to be the strongest economy in europe with 3% real gdp growth expected. now we are projecting only 1% for the u.k. economy. matt: economically punishing

1:31 am
given the power that had been building up? >> it's a good question. the thing that is surprising everyone is the timing. no one was really expecting this to happen so soon. the idea that it would happen eventually, people have been talking about it. we had seen the architect of saudi arabia's economic transformation plan in 2030 and a lot of moves that looked ambitious to a lot of people on the ground in saudi arabia. he was cultivating support among younger saudi arabia and and investing in technology, doing lots on government bonuses, cutting back to facilitate reformation of the saudi economy. that ended up being a little bit controversial among some saudi royals. they did think that he was basically making plans to succeed his father, and today a lot of people woke up and saw that those plans seem to have
1:32 am
come to an early fruition. i understand the prince has been crucial in the most recent standoff between saudi and qatar. what does this tell us about where that debate goes, and the reorientation of the saudi economy away from oil is something he has been keenly involved with. for saudi things arabia. he has not made it secret that he's not a fan of iran. you can expect that to continue. the interesting thing is the relationship now with the u.s.. both he and the existing crown prince had both been making overtures to the trump administration, both trying to achieve whole position when it comes to favorable relations with donald trump and his advisers. so that will be interesting, what happens now on that front. when it comes to the economic reform issue, it looks like a
1:33 am
big vote of confidence in those efforts. if anything, he comes in with a little bit extra leverage. at a minimum, he comes in with a longer mandate. he's 31 years old, compared to his uncle who is 57. anything he puts in now, it looks like analysts will begin in a little more comfort that those reform efforts will continue for longer with less risk that they will be pullback eventually. alloway, thank you for the latest on the developing story. let's talk about what's happening in markets and the reaction. >> let's look at european markets. the ftse 100 is doing very little. an interesting move there, you seen the move in the sovereign bonds. the oil story is fascinating,
1:34 am
wti coming down from this -- continuing in the bear market. the other story is what is happening with treasuries. is -- the curve is as flat as it has been since back in 2007. that's a story that the fed will be paying a great deal of attention to. a new edition of daybreak is available on your bloomberg and all of your mobile devices as well. isthe terminal, the function .ayb let's take a look at some of the top stories making miss it edition. the cover story is the queen's speech, queen elizabeth ii will outline the u.k. government's legislative proposal in london and it's set to be heavy on brexit and light on anything controversial.
1:35 am
it's unclear if prime minister theresa may can get it through parliament as power-sharing dragiations with the dup on. the telegraph reports that the norther party threatened to walk away from a deal with conservatives while a bbc report tweeted an agreement could be announced as early as tomorrow. space travel could also be a feature. let's move on and leave the u.k. for one moment to talk about china. chinese a shares will join the msci benchmark index handing the a bigger6.9 trillion, role in everything from etf's to retirement plans. saudi arabia could be next, on the watchlist of a potential classification as an emerging market. matt: we remain in saudi arabia, the countries deputy crown
1:36 am
prince was promoted to the position of crown prince, dropping the deputy part. he will replace his local in a surprise announcement -- he will replace his uncle and will eventually replace the king. pa reports he s restored all canceled benefits so the people should be happier now that they are getting more money. let's talk about the u.k. agenda here. the queen's speech takes place today in the house of lords, one of the houses of parliament behind me over the river. kallum pickering. a beautiful day here in london. are we going to get any granularity, any detail on brexit, or will it be very
1:37 am
general so that theresa may can be sure it will pass the vote? kallum: is going to be like when central banks released minutes. the markets will be splitting will findi think we out during the debates over the next week. interesting the things philip hammond pointed to was a bit more detail on the transition raymond -- transition arrangements that he has in mind. maintaining the current relationships in the about their being no cliff, but a ramp. the conservatives can play full-time. are have gonet ahead and got the brexit that they wanted. the key point is philip hammond is looking at the fiscal numbers
1:38 am
and he realizes it does not look good over the next five or 10 years if you have that cliff edge. he will do everything he can to minimize the damage within the next decade. a -- ofat do you make that target? many on the labor side have drawn the conclusion that the public has turned against austerity. he said we are not death, where listening on that front. fiscal taxe that the will be opening a little more in the u.k. or will he stick to that middle of the next decade target? kallum: if the economy is holding up, there is no reason why he should. i would be concerned if it is a tax-and-spend approach over the next few years. while politically it might be tough, the best thing the chancellor can do is limit the stressed government puts on the
1:39 am
private sector. anna: you talk about number of tail risks we face including the possibility of another election, the u.k. running out of time or even another eu referendum. something seem to be that is right at the front of the agenda right now. about rewriting the referendum. they will get some sort of brexit, it's a question of's -- a question of what sort. i can envision a small tail risk, the government simply and they will say hold on, our major problem here is the exit, the economy is in pretty good shape. again we just ask people if that's what they want to avoid that cliff effect. -- pushingng back
1:40 am
back on market expectations that we will see a rate hike anytime soon. he's had to come out and talk about the 5-3 split. people forget is the balance of demand and supply that causes inflation. supplies slowing a little faster than demand. the signal from mark carney is there is no august rate hike, which is probably sensible. i think the economy will actually do ok. consumer will do a little better than people expect. move you think the next from the bank of england is some sort of tightening move? others say the economy might weaken and the brexit negotiations drag on and the reality of it all hits home.
1:41 am
therefore we might need to see more's the. kallum: businesses are investing more than they were two or three orders ago and employment is still at a healthy pace. consumers are suffering a little because prices have gone up but .hey are opening their wallets going through a tough time where consumers are feeling the worst squeeze. if markets really believe the u.k. is heading for a softer brexit, and we see wage growth creeping up, we may look at the economy in a different light. anna: we had a conversation about whether we would see stagflation in the u.k.. is a medium-sized, open, liberal economy. balance sheets have improved over the last eight years. i don't worry about those risks
1:42 am
too much. anna: thank you very much for joining us. byt: we will be joined andrew sentence at 10:00 a.m. u.k. time. that's an interview you don't want to miss. there are some you questions about stagflation. some people think we are screaming stagflation right now and others think it's just the issue of the pound. south africa's finance minister has said the country needs to protect independence of its central bank. interview, exclusive he also said he needs to study recommendations that suggest altering the reserve banks role to focus more on social needs. released whileas i was traveling abroad. extent ofand the full
1:43 am
the remedial action being proposed in the context in which it arises, and therefore what , it seemsed pitfalls to be a conundrum in this regard. in the first instance, the context in which it arises is not quite clear to me. the pitfalls therefore of the amendment is also not quite clear, given the issues that are being investigated. thirdly, the procedure of effecting these remedial actions , the reserve bank is the mandate of the national treasury. portfolio made to the committee and not to the minister of finance, and having said that, i need to understand all this and make a determination on the best way
1:44 am
forward. court isitutional binding unless refuted by a court of law, which means that must review- it we them, we must go to a court and seek review. >> regardless of the context, the central bank is call this unlawful. to you understanding would it be unlawful to change the constitution in this way? thehe manner in which recommendations -- to change the constitution would not be unlawful but the manner in which it's being made would be unlawful. south africa prides itself in its strong institutions, many of which are independent, including the public protector, the south african reserve bank. and that way we take comfort in arefact that our courts
1:45 am
known to be independent themselves and to take rational decisions. therefore that will provide us with the proper way forward. then make the necessary determination. >> will do as finance minister support the reserve bank in opposing the public protector suggestion? moment, i'mesent interacting with the report to understand it in its full extent. once i had done that, i will all a determination whether joined the south african reserve bank. the publict of protector to make whatever recommendation, but i also support fully the independence of the south african reserve

1:50 am
stepped down. earlier the new york times reported this, saying five of uber's major investors demanded that he resign yesterday. he will remain on the board as the founder of uber in 2009 but he has, the company confirms, resigned after coming under pressure from a series of controversies. treasuryhe u.s., secretary steve mnuchin has been speaking to bloomberg on a range of topics, including the possibility of issuing altra long bonds. a new fed chair and the performance of president trump's economic team. he spoken about the need for the u.s. currency to be strong and dependable. we ask him how he defined a dependable dollar. >> the dollar is the reserve currency of the world. it's not our focus where the dollar is in the short term. certainobviously
1:51 am
negative aspects of a strong dollar as it relates to our exports, but on the other hand, a strong dollar is a vote of confidence in the u.s. economy and the trump administration, similar to what's going on with the stock market. this is one of the most important economic investment opportunities the u.s., and were seen a lot of attractions here. >> a few months back you were talking to a colleague of mine and suggested altra long bonds -- are you walking back from that? >> i'm not walking back. it's something we are very seriously considering. i think it is a tool the government should strongly consider and we are reaching out through the drawing committee and investors to see what the demand is. we don't want to create a program that's a completely one of program. we want to see if it would be an important part of our borrowing capabilities. >> in the past, people in your
1:52 am
position have been advisers to the president. as the president solicited your advice on who the next chair should be? >> we're working closely together in making recommendations to the president. he and i have interviewed all the people and have made joint recommendations to the president. >> what do you think constitutes a good fed chair? what should the president be looking for? anye have not made decisions yet on the fed chair, whether we will have a new one or not. we will be working closely together with the president as we consider all the issues. >> we were so much about the palace intrigue, discord within the white house. what your sense of how the economic team is working together? >> they could not be working better together. of us.a combination
1:53 am
we meet constantly and we could not -- we are working together. gary and i have known each other and havey long time worked together very closely in the past. a week after the federal reserve's much anticipated interest rate hike, dallas fed president robert kaplan has been laying out his preferred timeline for shrinking the central bank's balance sheet. >> it's my own view that we should begin the process, begin the rolloff sometime later this year. my best expectation is it will be appropriate to begin this process sometime before the end of 2017. christophe is still with us. let me get your take on the fed's move to not only raise rates and stick to its forecast,
1:54 am
but also strike a slightly hawkish tone as far as reduction of the balance sheet. are they getting a little bit ahead of themselves? christophe: what we expect is both, the fed to continue to hike interest rates at a very slow pace compatible with the strengthening of the u.s. economy on one hand. what we expect is an announcement by the end of this year of the beginning of the reduction of the size of the balance sheets of the fed. and what we expect for next year is something like 400 billion u.s. dollars reduction on the --ance sheet meaning according to academic research, the rise of long-term interest rates because of the balance sheets. anna: how much of a tightening function do you expect that
1:55 am
balance sheet run off to perform? i ask because they are very keen at the fed for this to be very well flagged and preset and set out for the media, for investors, so everybody understands when it's going to happen. is that a risk if this performs a tightening function? christophe: we don't know exactly how the long-term interest rate markets will react to a balance sheet reduction by the fed. research,to academic what we take into consideration ourselves is the increase in the fed balance sheet during the subprime crisis and after that is to being the equivalent of a decreasing of interest rate by 100 basis points. if we assume the impact will be symmetric, in the case of reduction of the size of the
1:56 am
balance sheet, what we could expect over the next years to come is a rise in long-term interest rates, but it would take time to achieve because of course the fed will reduce the size of its balance sheets. and aggressively, step-by-step, over the next six or seven years , especially we don't have any reduction. depends on the economic situation in the u.s. as well. matt: thank you so much, , joining us today. chinese a shares will join the msci benchmark indexes. we will dig into this move next. this is bloomberg. ♪
