3:24 am
we've seen happen with revulsion at markets plus a ruble drop so it's weakest close against the u.s. dollar and over the years also according to the latest reports across the us so and eighteen percent increase in foreign direct investments that last year were worth around thirty five billion dollars at the same time since the beginning of this year up until now fifty of billion dollars has already left the country and this already three times more than in two thousand and side well to discuss this further i'm now joined by the director of the new economics what is your city gabler different you very much for joining me for an item in your piece tell us now russia was among the hardest hit in the recent market volatility this is why you know it's the weakness of the domestic economy to even doesn't really mean that russia is weak it just means that russia is fulfilling the risk you place for investment because russia does depend on the global oil price in the global financial system and we've seen that three years ago as well and we'll see that now and i think the
3:25 am
good news is that the central bank russia understands that there's going to lessons from the three years ago and doesn't want the broke operable in boston market three and so the world as little as we can pull in the village you look in the markets i think i think russia is going to have a good chance to. do the bone reasonably soon but even the government can minimize its dependence on the oil. well that is a long term project and so far the government's been talking about it for twelve years now and failed to do that i think that the major things are fighting corruption ensuring property rights bill in fact in judiciary system improving investment climate for investment in oil businesses so far government has failed to do that if you're talking about that we'll see the whole of a new government which is the old government building and how do you think the recent political announcements will apply process economy and of course referring to the finance minister in the event and prime minister putin say that he will run and upcoming elections here as you mentioned investors are not convinced investors
3:26 am
and that's that investors are should iranian away from russia so i think i think they're not convinced that these political changes or not changes i should say a little creative investment climate fashion here and i think i think today's announcement by mr putin stressed secretary bed with him being compared with brezhnev is a good thing i think this announcement doesn't help at all investors don't like britain its economy so i assume that you do believe that we will see more capital flight in the run up to the election both depending on what kind of actions are undertaken if we see the populist speeches in which see. we could placement for the finance minister if we see that government is very deplete postponed in any form sort of been undertaken commission put forth i think there will be more capital outflow on the other hand as global market volatility it sends a very strong signal to russian government and russian government should change its
3:27 am
course maybe we'll see it reinvented to put in the full does reforms. it waits till. it wakes it is a wake and will it through the need for change and maybe it may be investors will look at them come back and just be thinking this us what the consummate the mess the market more attractive. old all those things fighting corruption i mean. protection for investors joining the. billions will do in fact introduce you to people to say sure hope we get government companies there's again there's been announced for many many years now and then eventually looking really from state capitals wolf we can invade and sense the people it was a bad idea but the government keeps growing here and there can more and more coming in kind to make on the. floor and sitting here british thank you very much knows that right there over new i can almost schoolmistress regain good air and of course there's lots more coming up here outperform later on we'll hear from prime minister vladimir putin actually this will be his first speech after announcing that he will
