she's here with me in the studio so i understand that charlie has no overtake in the u.s. as the leading trading partner in the world is probably no surprise really we've all witnessed the pace of the country over the years but we're going to be looking at what's behind the great in the business bulletin and also the pitfalls of potential ones there are ahead that's all coming up after the break. if you're passing through rushes to veer region you really can. write thousands of kilometers of unspoiled countryside make up an area where it's still possible to live off the land and enterprising local so the fruits of the forest by the side of nearly every road. such spectacular scenery makes it a paradise for fisherman and provides a business opportunity for hunter as. you know he has been hunting for more than
1:34 pm
thirty years and works for a company providing expeditions for tourists this season ducks are on the menu of. things a successful duck under a. lot of silence which means that i need to be very quiet i'm not going to write in the. office. but when you've been in the business as long as he has the birds don't stand much chance. there are defined hunting seasons in russia but lax enforcement means many animals are killed out of the allotted times which can leave young animals orphaned and unable to survive but environmentalists are fighting back the heart of just us forest provides a sanctuary for the most famous beast in russia it's home to a group who rescue often bear cubs and raise them when they're old enough to fend for themselves the cubs a target taken to a remote location and released back into the wild but it's not just bears who find
1:35 pm
a haven here this is wolf island here wolf pups who've been captured by hunters or bought from zoos have a second chance at life and conservationists have a unique opportunity to observe them these walls are all around four months old and they'll stay in this area for up to three years then most will go back to the wild for good just viewing them from the car was an experience in itself but then after a bit of a bumpy ride came an opportunity i just couldn't pass up. and this is where i was hoping for when i heard i was coming to a place called wolf island a chance to get up close and personal with the locals and it's these guys are going to act as foster parents for the next generation will come here. using the old awards as surrogate parents has already proved a successful technique. every year i place infant wolves with one year old wolf
1:36 pm
cubs whose parental instinct is totally shaped and they take them as their own cubs it's an important part of the world's development and a major factor in the success of a project which has seen more than twenty generations of cubs grow up here it's going to continue to take time and money to rehabilitate the wolfs reputation in russia. but the keepers here hope their research and dedication i mean that we file and remains a place where visitors can truly understand the call of the wild. hello there welcome to business dreams of becoming the next james bond winning formula one or even designing your own fashion line maybe on a typical aspiration list in most countries but here in russia jobs the people
1:37 pm
dream about after all more modest are going to the latest survey almost half of the russian population aspire to work for the biggest state run company gas problem so let's cross over now to the business staff to talk with dmitri medvedev hello eighty eight has so tell us kasparov the place to be is that well apparently yes according to an opinion poll by the arm which is the national opinion poll agency forty four percent of respondents want to be with gas problems is actually a major improvement on the previous years a representation every other russian basically wants to work for the gas giant thirty three percent two thousand and nine rosneft in second place twenty nine percent people wanting to work there and the biggest state banks burbank is finishing this top three twenty five percent of russians are eager to get on the lead this payroll that's what we have said to me why that's the burning question
1:38 pm
why do people want to work for these states giant corporations well if i had to answer with just one why that would be obviously stability because this kind of reflect that russians want to feel secure with their jobs these three companies of course have a huge involvement of the state in the. they have big time with the government and therefore in case of reputation of a crisis they would probably not go belly up whereas if you work for private companies you never know what is going to happen but actually there is another opinion from ben arras who is the editor in chief of business new europe east as basically it reflects a transition period that russians labor market is in and actually his comparison is pretty radical as to what he had. in the ninety's they did a survey of schoolchildren about what they wanted to be when they grew up and the little girl said that they wanted to be hard currency person sees. things moved on
1:39 pm
and you know the comfort of the economy is functioning albeit not as well as it should be hopefully the next stage will be you will see more and more companies private companies emerging like you and. wimbledon or whoever which will then change and see these a dynamic companies that offer better working conditions pays good and will change again i mean we're sort of halfway down the road at the moment you know. so it's pretty harsh in that dmitri i've got to say what positive isn't saying so we end well yeah i mean ben just said i can't really agree with that because i don't think i've ever heard any child say in the ninety's that they wanted to be a currency prostitute other they didn't know the first word of that word combinational the second word or if they didn't know what that meant they probably wouldn't want to be that but he is correct that sorry that the criminal world was kind of romanticized in mass culture in the ninety's so kind of people felt
1:40 pm
some kind of appeal from that but anyway that's coming back to our present times what we do see on t.v. in the news including business news here on r.t. is actually these three big names gas from burbank so therefore people hear about these companies that are most advertised in a way so therefore they want to. basically well i hope it was a case of they didn't know what it meant to move on now with this opinion poll do you way think that in reality it reflects the state of the labor market at the moment do you think people are running for shelter or is a case of running away from chaos well i actually don't think about much reflects the state of labor markets but it's short because what we are seeing right now we have to remember this is an opinion poll of course so it's based on people on the street not unemployed people looking for for another job right now we are seeing the unemployment rate standing at a healthy value of five point three percent this is twice as less as the
1:41 pm
unemployment in the point rate in the euro zone for example more than eleven percent there and actually if you look at the headhunting websites like like you're super job all you they have different data they say mostly people are looking for jobs are young people just like the rest of the world eighty percent students mostly and most sorts of jobs are accountants driver and lawyer whereas most offer jobs are sales manager. other types of managers and secretaries and also if you look at super job are you there top three companies mentioned bank which is a private banks are not a state company who go which is globally a very popular boyle heights. company and b. like the mobile provider so basically i wouldn't say that this opinion poll reflects the state of labor market but it does reflect what people feel secure about. to meet remember i thank you very much indeed insecurity you could argue is
1:42 pm
the most important thing i can let's move on them a check out the markets we can see starting with wall street stocks are fluctuating gains and losses as american leaders prepare for more crucial budget talks and its anticipation surrounding those stocks that leave the european stocks flat. in tuesday's session as investors stay on the fence keeping a close eye stateside as debates continue between democrats and republicans on the so-called fiscal cliff now the common currency is climbing steadily really ever since the great buyback deal which calls the initial optimism and it has continued from there where the russian ruble finished the session stronger against the dollar but low against the strengthening ruble in moscow the markets finished up the session in negative territory as you can see just there under a percent but the r.t.s. and the mice and the fact that oil prices are going style there isn't really helping matters the you guys investors have always keep a close eye on lies. and moving on china has a posse u.s.
1:43 pm
as the leading trading partner in the world and done it in just five years the two biggest economies in the world have now switch places in terms of trade back in two thousand and six the u.s. was the largest for one hundred twenty seven countries versus seventy for china the latest figures show china is now the largest one hundred twenty four countries with just seventy six for the u.s. but the longevity of china's pace of growth has now been called into question and i asked yana from standard chartered what the future holds for the economy. of course china has actually. i believe the u.s. in terms of trading a while ago and this is imminent with china's g.d.p. growth and certainly we believe that certainly within the next decade or so china will become the top economy in the world and what does this mean for china it
1:44 pm
doesn't mean that it's even more important for china to now transform its economy from an investment led economy towards a more consumption driven economy because the impacts for the total population of china will be much more positive compared to in vestments less economy to me what is actually behind this growth. well there are several factors the main driver to just here is that investment is still the major driver of china more or less fifty percent of g.d.p. is coming from investment growth the other. drivers of growth of course is consumption and exports. investment specially government state led investment still very much dominates china's growth of course a lot of this is catch up course we have calculated that given that three
1:45 pm
provinces in china's smaller provinces can grow towards the capita income levels of tier one cities such as beijing shanghai. we can see at least seven percent growth in china for at least five more years and even more if tier three economies are able to reach the per capita incomes of tier one cities now you'll talk about growth in the next five years or so but a lot of people have been talking about. heartland we have got an aging population to do with wages are beginning to rise what do you think are the problems that will face the chinese economy in the future because they are around the corner on the horizon some would argue there are many facets to problems facing china and this comes of course with china's rising dominance in the international arena
1:46 pm
first of all china faces many social problems and the recent financial crisis has highlighted a lot of these for example the unemployment situation of course the official unemployment data does not capture migrant workers so really getting these migrant workers to be included in china's. growth and transform ation into a much more market consumption as economy is very important and the other problem facing china of course is environmental and you know china is of course addressing some of this these issues certainly from the new twelfth five year plan we can see a lot of emphasis is now put on green grace really addressing environmental issues now finally the very very major problem facing china which probably needs
1:47 pm
addressing really soon is reform in terms of constitutional reform having the right rules of law will benefit china in the longer term and without this i really don't think that china will sustain its current pace of growth for much longer than ten ten years or so. i'll be back in just under two hours with the next business bulletin but more news will build all to state. at. the ride that takes your breath away to eating across the sky as it was a mohnish could you know the biggest salt lake in europe and more than two hundred

1:52 pm
the people to accept things that they otherwise wouldn't accept so it will become and so governments and parliaments will lose its sovereign budget rights and that is unbelievable for a confederation of states as europe it is so if she is reelected will she be seeking to firmly establish germany as the center of the euro politically as well as economically no i don't think so i think she will still seek the support of all other european partner countries however the central forces of brussels will become stronger and that is generally a bad. development it would be much better the sovereign states the confederation what have its proper parliaments to decide upon these things instead of somebody in the central in brussels americans and hundreds of thousands of clicks internet
