1:38 pm
going to be yecialg who is in charge and per finance minister will stay in his position. and i think it's that partnership which is so crucial, both in terms of defining germany's domestic economic policy but also its policy towards euro zone and in particular the troubled countries in the southern part of the euro zone. while germany's economy is the strongest, ireland is the first struggling economy to exit its program. it needed a $92 billion bailout loan from a trio of l linders. by bringing in -- lenders. ireland has been able to return to international debt markets and raise enough money to fund government spending itself from next year. sy press, greece and portugal are still work out of their
1:39 pm
bailout packages. joining me from dublin, thank you very much for being with us. what does the exit from the bailout program mean for ireland? >> thank you, this is really a historic day for ireland today, the day we're exiting the bailout. and it's an historic day, we're the first country, first european country to actually exit the bailout. we have met the conditions, we have met all our targets. and we are now having our economic independence restored. and i think that that's hugely significant for irish people. >> i mean, it's cost quite a high price, i think 300,000 people have left the country since 2010 and unemployment is around 12%. >> it certainly has been difficult and there's no doubt about it but that the fact that we have been able to emerge from this bail bailout has been -- bailout has been very much due
1:40 pm
tot pain that the irish peep -- to the pain that the irish people have had to take. fortunately now we are returning to growth as well. in the period between 2008 and 2011 we were losing 2,000 jobs per week. we lost 250,000 jobs in that period. we're now in a position that we're starting an economic recovery, we're creating 1200 jobs per week and certainly, there's hope and a sense of optimism there for the future now. >> you talk about the hope and optimism. what about austerity? is that the end of austerity? we're going to see cuts for how many years? >> i think one of the issues around the bailout wasn't this. it was actually very important. but ownership the last three years the labor party has actually been in government over this period. and the labor party in
1:41 pm
particular, it was very adamant that we didn't have austerity for the sake of austerity. but sure we accepted the fact that we like all european countries needed to get our books in order and we needed to sthawr we were working -- insure that we were working towards that. the more vulnerable were protected and that where we could heap and where we could protect people -- help people and where we could we did. here in ireland, we didn't lose one day in industrial action, through -- and despite all of the hardship, that was there. nor did we have one compulsory redundancy in the public service unlike other bailout countries as well, and that a lot of what was done, was done in partnership with the irish people who really did take a lot, and take a lot of the pain. but i think that now hopefully
1:42 pm
irish people will be able to reap the benefit of economic recovery into the future. >> okay, thank you very much indeed for taking the time to talk to us. appreciate it. >> thank you. police and protestors have clashed in the spanish capitol, madrid. against government austerity policies. the city of barcelona and paris moved a little closer to each other on sunday. the high speed rail service has begun. >> be no shortage of willing passengers when the tickets went on sale and on sunday those excited ticket holders streamed onto the platform at barcelona's central station to take the journey. >> it's a very good thing. not only do we win time but
