2:13 am
year. it has had bad years in the past. i think 2017 looks quite good from our standpoint. francine: can you update us on offers for power stations in russia? >> i think we lack one. it seems we are getting it this week. hesitant, because we wanted to sell only one power station. we got offers for the whole package, so we are not sure what to do. it's a 50-50 decision. we have not yet made up our mind. francine: are you leaning toward one option? is it better to sell everything? >> no, i don't think so at this moment, frankly speaking. i think it would be a mistake to sell out of russia. francine: how will you make your decision? is it on price? >> it's probably price, partly the outlook of the market. it seems quite depressed and
2:14 am
difficult for the last few years. now, maybe, it is one of the positives of the presidency situation. we are inclined to see what happens. we don't know. francine: do you think there will be enoug a offern for whatu are trying to sell? >> we got one, but we got an offer for the whole package. we are not going to sell the whole package. it's a matter of price, as always, but also value. francine: we talked a little bit about the energy industry, but what about consumer prices, and the impact that has on how much i get for gas? >> 2017 is going to be a very heavy election-year for many countries. i think that will really influence the economy of the eurozone, for reasons that have
2:15 am
to do with consumer sentiment and real stuff. i think the announcement of the u.k. will also be important. frankly, i hope it will be picking up inflation and more consumer spending. francine: the u.k. announcement you say is important, because of the turmoil. you want to directly impacted, by that may have an impact on animal spirit? >> yes. i think it will finally get off this era of fuzziness, what is going to happen, are we going to stay, are we going to go out? sentiment to finally decide which direction. francine: thank you so much for joining me. that was the ceo of enel. plenty more great interviews coming up. we will speak to the credit suisse ceo, and we have the speech by the president of china, with the plan on the future of finance.

we're indeed with roland rudd, chairman of open britain. thank you so much for making the time to see us. we are expecting theresa may to deliver a speech on where she sees the brexit negotiations going, so let's start on the premise that she is ready, and this is what we are expecting her to say, that we believe the single market. what does it mean? >> it would be a massive disappointment to leave the single market. thi s was in the manifesto. leaving the european union happened because of a referendum, and the single market was always expected -- that was the jewel in the crown, we would always stay. if we are going to leave it, then it is beholden to the government to find an alternative agreement that is as good as that, and we will want to hold the government to account. the chancellor said very clearly, nobody voted to make a score. -- make us poorer.

francine: what kind of agreement could replace it in enough time for it not to mean that ceos move people outside the u.k.? >> i honestly don't know. that's very much for holding on the government to come up with that. but i would say this -- in terms of when we are trying to deal with certainty, one of the most important things of a transitory arrangement -- we heard from our former representatives of the eu that this could take up to a decade to actually organize. in the meantime, we have got to be able to stay in the market. we have to trade as we do. by far, the biggest amount of trade of anyone else. america is 17%, nothing like as important as the ed. that transitory arrangement has to be in place. francine: let's say she doesn't talk about this transition area agreement today, and she says the negotiation process -- do

you think ceos will start from this afternoon, making contingency plans? they probably don't even have two years. >> it will depend very much in terms of what the follow-up is, into terms of what we learn from the details behind the 12 points. what they will be arguing very strongly is a reminder that we are already in the best trading arrangement with the eu, and that if you are going to upset that because of various ideological concerns about ecj or free movement, then you have to come up with something that will be as good as, and that is the bit nobody knows, because nobody has been able to come up with any arrangement that matches membership in the single market. francine: if the supreme court comes out in the next couple days or weeks, saying that parliament needs to trigger article 50, would that be a scar for businesses? >> not really. it's simply an understanding
2:25 am
that the democratic process demands there should be a vote at the beginning, and of vote at the end. it remains to be seen whether some mps who are very concerned about trading arrangements actually want to amend article -- theyrms of understand they have to vote with it, but talk about clauses with the arrangement we have, and having full participation in the market could be one. but the vote is just the democratic process. francine: if there is no transition area agreement, what are we expecting? >> it's difficult to put a number on it, but it would be devastating. we would literally come off a cliff edge. this is not about making forecasts that sound frightening. this is all information based on the bank of england and very, very clear economic forecasts. francine: could he not become a tax haven, like monaco or san marino? idea could, but -- the

that being the singapore of the eu is as good as the arrangement we have now, where our trade for the eu forces everything else, that we can freely trade -- it's not just tariff barriers, it's nontariff barriers, in terms of rules and regulations. for our service economy, which is 80% of our economy, which is so important. as offshore singapore may be, it will have to come up with some extraordinary crediting arrangement with the eu to ensure we don't lose those aspects of the single market that have been so important to our prosperity. francine: thank you so much for joining us. roland rudd, the chairman of open britain. i'll handed back to you, and later on we have a great banking panel. will hear the chinese president .thank you very much anna:. that'll do it for daybreak
