strong earning results as well. we are very much focused on what is happening with the inflation picture when it comes to perhaps consumers coming back and boosting the economy. that consumption fueled boost. we may not be quite there yet. we know there are trillions of dollars in savings stash away during the pandemic but when we saw the latest numbers, extra saving in these bank balances declined only marginally so perhaps, this gives a clue that inflation might not be that permanent as expected if consumption doesn't also come back rolling. haidi: talk about the huge gap we continue to see between what investors are seeing in the economy, what consumers are seeing, right? different outlooks there. that pent up spending could come back as we see international travel resume. to that point, we are hearing australia is in these talks.

6:05 pm
relatively stable is what we are aiming for when it comes to these conditions. this prompted goldman sachs to not see that rrr cut. they see the pboc using these target monetary policy tools to keep that level of liquidity in the economy stable. shery: those scroll shocks will factor into a huge day on the economic front for china. let us bring in kathleen hays. we are expecting a deceleration in growth in the third quarter. anchor: we sure are. it is been a perfect storm of negative things for china, hasn't it? it will hit china's gdp. third-quarter gdp, we will see a couple of hours from now. but us look at a bloomberg chart. it will show you the estimate. gdp was at 7.9% year-over-year in the second quarter. now it is expected to drop to 5.0%. it is a good rate but quite a

deceleration. when you look at things like ever grand and property developers spillover, hitting the economy confidence. when you look at the energy shortage, commodity prices, everything is hitting hard. there other hard reports. the pmi for manufacturing fell just below 50 with signaled growth and contraction at 49.5 in september? it fell from 5.3 in august. retail sales is a bright note. higher year-over-year from 2.5 in august 2 over 3% in september. the containment of the virus, the easing of the lockdown is what has helped consumers. their asset investors seem to be slowing to seven point 8% yearly in september but overall, speaking in washington, a group of international banking event saying he expects the economy to grow 8% in 2021.
6:07 pm

6:19 pm
for stagflation to materialize? --the potential for stagflation to materialize? guest: i think what we have seen over the last couple days is that sentiment got quite bearish. we saw investors becoming negative on stocks since the u.s. election last year. past anytime before the pandemic what they were worried about, where evaluations were and where growth was in the context of monetary policy tightening. inflation pressures could draw it. or the markets are feeling reasonably emboldened by the fact that we will see reasonably robust results from the second quarter from a narrative point of view to buy back into stocks and buy that dip. the longer-term issue remains with the global supply shock brought upon by the pandemic. pressures coming from that. the very fine line they are
6:20 pm
walking to taper down inflation risks. shery: can consumers lead a market surge or recovery that can be sustained would we have seen so much money stashed away during the pandemic but not necessarily being spent? we are seeing this function on the bloomberg tracker that show surprises and eco-data. we are doing good on personal and household spending. i wonder if this is sustained. they are not necessarily opening up their wallets as of yet. when can we see that change? >> guest: i think it is a slow burn. we will see consumers over time eat into their savings and sustain the recovery going forward. we know that consumers are reasonably strong or reasonably strong because all the stimulus
6:21 pm
that has been provided for them since the start of the pandemic. u.s. labor market is improving and able -- reluctant to go back into work. people feel wealthy because how selling is going up and shared portfolios are going up as well. there are these other indications that on the demand side, things are solid. more stimulus from the u.s. government that can sustain that dynamic good what is concerning is that over time, we could see productivity diminish as a supply-side issue crimps businesses. and slows down their ability to higher, create jobs in the longer-term, sustain that demand. if there's any short price rises in the could be a factor in crimping these going forward and there could be a cause of reassessment of their policy outlook going forward. to me, demand is a slow burn. as they run down their savings,
6:22 pm
they will be a robust labor market and we will hit the ceiling because we have this supply-side disruption and keeping the global economy, not working it at full capacity and that is the longer-term risk. haidi: i want to throw out this preview it when it comes to the gdp. looking under the hood, we know the retail sentiment aspect that the chinese consumer is underperforming. there is the multiple confluence of crises. the ever grand and energy inflation crisis as well. what are your expectations from china? is that diminishing expectation of growth from china something that the markets are not really worried about but perhaps should be, ongoing? guest: it will be more worried about it as time goes on. what we are seeing is china is tended to rely on an old and tried method to sustain its growth. we are seeing the wages.
6:23 pm
we have seen developed economies that can't get enough of chinese goods and demanding very strongly there. that is sustaining things in the short-term. the big thing is a structural shift. we won't be able to see why over the months and years as they try and restructure their economy. obviously, trying to contain the issues when it comes to their financial market. there will be a major driver of some of the growth which is construction activity that might take a hit because of the slowdown in the property market that will have an effect on consumers going forward. causing a vicious cycle for the economy. it is a big weird -- red flag. china's economy will look like it will be slowing down.
6:24 pm
it will be prioritizing social issues. haidi: does that mean in terms of domestic australian market, the reopening trade is a focus at the moment? guest: it is much more of a focus. obviously, we are stemming from trade. we talked about the are in or price being off its high but historically, it is quite elevated to $130 at the moment. we are seeing that expert driven growth good domestically, it is about taking that pent-up demand built-up over the last couple quarters. with new south wales and victoria being under lockdown. it will be a slow burn with the economy. we had a pear-shaped reopening because we were covid 04 six months last year which meant we were free to roam around and the economic agents as you would in normal circumstances. this will be a slower ground -- grind.
6:25 pm
we'll have virus in the community as we did in other parts of the world. it will be a flutter recovery here than what we experienced last year. haidi: always great to have you with us. we do have lots more to come on daybreak australia. this is bloomberg. ♪

6:31 pm
international tourists to return? guest: that is absolutely critical. our tourism industry has been flattened in the pandemic. the critical thing now is to make a pathway to begin to open up. we have the first signs of that so certainly, i move to allow australian citizens to come back in in the coming weeks either with no quarantine or minimal quarantine. this is the first step. i think we saw on friday, the primary signaling the willingness to scrap quarantine altogether. that is a step we have to get to at some point in the coming months. the first step is essential and that is moving to a more flexible system of quarantine, opening up to australians who
6:32 pm
are overseas or rapidly cutting them back or very quickly, opening up to tourists, international students and to skilled migrants. these are all critical areas for his new is. haidi: how damaging will it be to not have that piece of the chinese consumer? the chinese traveler? guest: these are all important markets. at the moment, it is essential that we find a pathway to open up. our first up with countries like singapore will be very valuable. there are many important markets. china, korea, japan, india, all these markets which we have to get access to in the coming months. we have to find a pathway to do that. that is absolutely essential from here. shery: how are businesses dealing with the lack of foreign labor. is this an issue?
6:33 pm
guest: absolutely. still shortages in the market. as severe as they have been in the past two decades, it is right across all sectors. a huge number of professions so whether that is the health sector which is an obvious one. teaching i.t. jobs, engineering jobs, construction jobs, all these areas. mechanical engineers etc. etc. there are a lot of areas where we have shortages at the moment. really, the only way to begin to address that rapidly would be to have access to migrants. normally, in the past few years that has been 120,000 people coming in. we need more of that in the next few years. shery: as australia edges closer to reopening, what does that mean for covid payments to not just support businesses but
6:34 pm
individuals? how should those be phased out? guest: clearly, if the economy ounces back strongly, it will be possible to phase those out. i think what we would say is given the uncertainties in timing here, this should be done gradually. we don't want to chop business off at the knees. you can't pick a switch and restart. we are starting to see opening up in new south wales, the tory a, but that may take some weeks for businesses to get up on their feet and get stuff back in and get fully open it would gotta take it gradually. we cannot make it more difficult than needs to be. we got take it one step at a time. haidi: is there adequate preparation for businesses and services should be handling this phase of the reopening? if we take a look at the case numbers in the u.k., for
6:35 pm
example, large parts of the u.s., it will probably be a surge even with high levels of vaccinations. our business is prepared with a blueprint as for how they should react to that? guest: i think many businesses have been preparing. they want to get open again and look at all the signs that there are quite good resilience there across most of the businesses but of course, the more time we got to plan, the more flexibility. one has to understand that it is really reasonable endeavors from businesses point of view to work with the rules in place. i think if we can have a common set of rules across different states, this will help. government coordinating with businesses, trying to work with a more or less similar plan across the country. all of those things will help
6:36 pm
with the reopening to make that more rapid. to make it smoother for business and get people back to work, back in the shops and going about their business before the end of the year. haidi: you talk about across the country and different states. we are in a situation where we will probably be able to go to london, l.a. or new york before we get to wa or queensland. do you think it is time to open up domestic borders? how does that happen given the divisions we see and how covid and delta is handled. ? guest: that has to happen. clearly this dates or its queens and, south australia, tasmania, they got a booster vaccination rates. we understand that is important. there has now been enough time for that to occur. we are seeing how it has accelerated in new south wales.
6:37 pm
we see how it is accelerating in victoria. let us not be complacent. we got a push out and get those vaccination rates up. we want to manage the health impacts. covid will get into those states at some point. it could be tomorrow, next week or next month or the more prepared they are, the better it will be. don't take a day off to see how this plays out. we gotta press on and keep going to get those vaccination rates up. shery: good to have you with us. ceo of the australian chamber of commerce and industry. less get to the first word news with vonnie quinn. vonnie: insulin inflation jumped more than asked -- expected, faster rate than 10 years. the central bank will keep raising interest rates. it surge to four point 9% from 3.3% in the previous period. they want to keep inflation
