that will be the biggest world economy in the in the following years is really going to make a lot of tension on the global scale and so it we should be wise and just start thinking about building the security mechanisms and structures that will include all the big superpowers not just. moscow has asked for legal guarantees that the proposed missile defense shield won't be aimed at its nuclear capabilities so far the u.s. and nato average used to provide them russia's and going to the alliance says the project seems more of a threat to security rather than a reassurance. there's a book in which you do the security of an individual or state consists of two parts the first is the guarantee given by law by the state the other participant mentioned by a person's actions to provide his or her own security the same applies to what the more real guarantees are get from our partner the us will do to provide security

underway we are live and russia's northern capital tracking the deals and discussions. anyway. welcome live to say petersburg where the russian answer to davos the st petersburg international economic forum is underway right now more than a thousand attendees from dozens and dozens of companies are here in st petersburg looking at the economic potential of russia among the big themes that we have going on here are russia's a session to the world trade organization and the efforts in order to complete that and also the creation of a state backed private equity fund with about ten billion dollars worth in it in order to foster innovation in russia and to bring more business and economic activity to russia and the former c.e.o.'s countries also another big aim of this it is not only to reach out to the west to the west and western companies nor to do
3:23 am
business here but also look to look eastwards as well china is going to be a major player in this conference in fact along with president dmitry medvedev a chinese president hu jintao was also scheduled to be here as well and while i hear they're going to be working out the final details of a gas deal between china and russia right now to talk more about all this and to talk more about the general economic situation and what's going on here in st peter's averred i am joined by nicholas jordan c.e.o. of u.b.s. in russia and the former c.e.o. is countries thank you very much for joining me here so just tell me so far what are your impressions of the conference what do you hoping to accomplish here right think it's very impressive set up. i think it's probably the premier form in which the business community can meet each other as well as the political elite and discuss the things that are happening today as well as the way forward very good now since president advent of took office diversifying the economy he said has been
3:24 am
one of his primary goals how far do you think progress has come on i think there's been some progress i don't. it's enough and personally i think the actually the government also believes that it's not that the job is not complete. they have done some good things like you like they've established kolkata they have asked for politicians to leave the boards of various companies they have extensive privatisation program they've established the fund that you're talking about that would look for edward investments so they've done some things but there's more to do right now russia seems heavy capital outflow in the last ten years despite strong oil prices and despite commodities prices being hired why do you think the money is leaving russia and you think it's a risk for the country. but i think that if it continues long term probably guess. some of that is diversification some of that is technical with various mergers and acquisitions moving things are sure offshore and things of that nature but obviously some of that is money that should stay at home moving abroad and i think
3:25 am
that's the trick that is where the government needs to to concentrate its efforts to create a long holding environment in the pension industry before needs to be done insurance companies life side of their business his minute mutual funds and other things you know you're not going to create you're not going to bring companies to list in russia if there is no longer money in russia they're going to go where the money is spent right now that's in london hong kong and here and in terms of your money in russia how is i go and what are the u.b.s. plans and what is the general vision for the way forward here we're very optimistic and positive it's a large country with a large population and a very substantial here abroad if we can call it that. we believe there is progress being made in diversifying the economy there's going to be opportunities in respect to that companies new companies are rising all the time they need to raise capital
3:26 am
that's what we do best we do it globally and we believe we could do that here do you think russia's assertions of the w.t. you know is something. that is going to happen is going to help the country in terms of bringing foreign business i think i think it's a positive i think it will happen it's inevitable that it does happen i think some of some of the benefits will be at the margin but it's another step in joining the global community international committee of the league financially politically and otherwise and so it's a positive step very good and what do you think will actually ensure what actions do you think the country can in take in terms of things like this forum at such trying to encourage more foreign business and investment but i think a continued effort to address i guess the three major concerns of the international community which are a stable illegal if i am in a more that better understanding of property rights and you know the general political stability which i think in fact is being addressed in
