5:05 pm
form you have beautiful sunshine and on the next day you have rain and that's how it really acts for us and these officials are looking at the economy and optimistic that eventually they will somehow get out of that the main challenge so that you are up the european union i should say and russia and countries like kazakhstan are facing is not to allow the euro crisis to affect their trade and that's really what was the focus at this final session it has to be said as well though that the final question actually from the moderator wasn't in fact about money it was the question that was really on everyone's mind and would it come up before the end of the forum and that of course is whether or not president made today david is going to run for reelection here is what. we should. but when i consider it appropriate to tell you whether i will do it or not i will come out and say it this forum is not the best place for that one thing you can be sure of is that i would be able to avoid making that statement i will have to tell the people of russia and anyone
5:06 pm
else who's interested about my decision so secret that president medvedev may want for him as president and if you're wrong. reelection will certainly be modernization that's what he opened this forum with and this is the best place to really work in detail on projects like spoke up with the plan to build someone like silicon valley institute just outside moscow it's well underway in terms of development a lot of c.e.o.'s of yours here for the three day summit in st petersburg from silicon valley we had eric schmidt. and they're actually meeting with all of the officials from the scope of my work you find by find with them to make sort. of moves and develop the body as possible so it's a great venue for the movers and shakers as we call them to really get together with these officials and in a very informal matter proves that the way they think it should be done. they're bringing us up to date of good will from some petersburg to an all business

5:08 pm
find is highly inconsistent and it's hypocritical. in the case of syria in particular i think the u.s. is caught between wanting to be active but at same time mortified by what the alternative would be in syria which in my view is completely unjustified it's not necessarily going to turn into a fundamentalist islamic state or anything like that what we are seeing there are really for freedom and democracy and. while he could have been if you like played a more consistent role in foreign policy hasn't done. also any sort of intervention there were doing which is based purely on this desire for stability is bound to be counterproductive coming up in our two years barack obama gets sued for going into libya without congress we asked people in new york whether they think

problem is that there are simply too many university graduates now entering the system in one thousand nine hundred eighty two when the government began to seriously look at expanding higher education chinese universities that were producing eight hundred thirty thousand graduates a year in two thousand and ten but number was six million and it's still growing. and that is for that on the one hand chinese universities were already in a weak state we made them weaker with an over rapid expansion so the education received by many of today's graduates has been very poor on the other we have a whole generation who are used to having everything going for them you cannot do anything for themselves he's going to give people like this work. with reports of rioting taking place in some areas the government is now looking to take action measures being discussed include limiting residence permits to skilled professionals and introducing electronic i.d. cards for outsiders without a stable job however with the number of graduates entering the workforce set to

5:19 pm
a sort of antarctica landmark even becoming somewhat of a tourist destination for v.i.p.'s and diplomats. no matter who visits this church they always say it's beautiful it's a remarkable church made out of boudin a russian architectural tradition. more than just a popular tourist destination the building station on king george island is a russian orthodox church and it's a fully functioning facility even performing rare matrimonial honors for those. machines and when. i came here for a long stay sixteen months and i had no idea that there were. as a church in russia i was not a frequent visitor to church but here somehow i started to be before i left russia i promise atlanta that i'll bring her here i was not sure how but i promised that i would whilst atlanta was still in russia i got the idea why not have our wedding in this church. not inscribed line are one of only two couples to have been married

here at trinity making their marriage a part of antarctic history in antarctica sean thomas. as catch up with the transit i was in some pain is. these are the days when the sun doesn't set on russia's northern cop at all but it is going down on russia's on the st petersburg international economic forum or president dmitry medvedev capped off the entire event with a address during a panel discussion that he shared with the presidents of finland the prime minister of spain and the president of kazakhstan where they discussed the challenges facing the global economy the russian president called on all countries to jointly handle challenges facing the global financial system and he said united efforts and policy will help pull countries out of the deadlock and the doldrums that are facing the
5:21 pm
global financial system he said a key priority for russia in this case is to integrate more with other countries in the global economy and foster better cooperation with all of them and a part of that a keystone of all that he believes is the establishment of moscow europe's largest city as a major financial hub for the global financial system europe is looking toward is looking toward this he believes that he believes that moscow is uniquely positioned to provide that service he's proposed in this case to expand moscow's borders currently seeking to move the jobs of large institutions out towards the outskirts of the city and bring those outskirts of the city not currently incorporated as part of the city system in order to free up space in the city center and downtown for new business to go when there are more private business very more capital a differing opinion as a space in the congested downtown order to bring more economic growth to moscow and
5:22 pm
really establish what is as i had said to europe's largest city as a major financial hub not just a regional one we talk more about this with. the t.v. capital who believes that it is a key thing. to create a good environment for international work in the city center of moscow. i believe one of the main challenges. was referred to actually here in the forum as well as the like is it the structure of the legal system. in the russia i think i guess what he's supposed to make sure that there is season this. gaze this is this is the business one thing was the government sold so this i think it will become much of a financial sense. but jack are enough from elbrus capital management believes it's also important to boost domestic capital in russia so i would like to me do three points to. one weakness of the russian financial system which has to be addressed
5:23 pm
