tv   Key Capitol Hill Hearings  CSPAN  September 8, 2016 2:00am-4:01am EDT

2:00 am
for? but how imports into shore role of your country's's development. >> i think that young people has directly heavily spend the key to progress and development.abou . .e that the united states
2:01 am
2:02 am
2:03 am
2:04 am
2:05 am
is and can be a great force for good in the world. but because we are such a big country, we didn't always know about other parts of the world. if you are in laos, you need to know about thailand and china and cambodia because you are a small country and they are right next door. you need to know who they are. if you are the united states sometimes you can feel lazy and think. that's part of what i'm trying to change because this is the region that's going to grow faster than any place in the world. as the youngest population and
2:06 am
the economy is growing faster than any place. if we are here interacting and learning from you and understanding the culture of the region then we will be left behind. we will miss an opportunity and i don't want that to happen. [applause] i would like to ask how will you ensure [inaudible] continues after you step down plaques to disconnect to things we are going to do, we are working with the state department.
2:07 am
it will continue after i've left the program to bring certain members to the united states to maintain the networks. we are trying to institutionalize that so that it continues after i'm gone. but i'm also going to do is in my own work as an ex- president i hope to continue to work with young people and one of the components that i discussed with my team is how i can continue to interact with the alumni. we can share ideas and i can continue to meet with you and we can work on projects together. i will continue to stay involved, but the program itself we will continue to run through the state department, and i'm confident that it will continue
2:08 am
to do great things. [applause] since we are in laos, let me finleftbehind a young man. >> here we go. right here. hello mr. president. thank you for visiting us. i want to ask you if only one thing can be given, what do you want to see and how do you contribute to that? >> it's a good question. [applause] i think if there is one thing we've learned is that the most
2:09 am
important thing for any country is its people. if there's one thing i can help to bring about, it would be improving educational standards for young people throughout la laos. and as i said before, making sure that includes girls and not just boys because if you look at the countries that are successful, let's just take a coffee -- as an example the country that has the highest standard of living in singapore. singapore actually has very little, it doesn't have natural resources it has ports for the tiny country.
2:10 am
and yet economically it is very successful. why is that? part of it is because it's educational levels are extremely high. and as a result, companies from around the world are interested in locating places they can find a workforce that is creative and smart and can do the job. so it's wonderful if you have natural resources. it's wonderful that you are a big country with a large population. but ultimately, how successful a country is will depend on whether its people have the skills and education and division to be able to use the resources effectively. we are going to continue to work with all the countries so that we can constantly promotes
2:11 am
[inaudible] [inaudible] technical training, training in a trade, that can be valuable as well. and this is for the united states as well. in the united states, we have some of the best universities in the world, but one of the things i've been emphasizing we also have what is called community colleges. they are not four-year universities, they are typically two-year degrees and you can be very successful going there and finding a specialized trade or learning a very specific skill that companies are hiring for. we want to give young people a range of options. not everybody wants to study in a classroom and become a lawyer
2:12 am
or dr.. but it's also very valuable if you have somebody that is a really skilled electrician. it's true the people that are designing software for the iphone are the best engineers but there are jobs in computer science is where you don't need a four year degree. coding isn't that complicated once you learn how to do it. so we want to make sure that at every level young people have the ability to access a great education. and if we are able to do that, then i'm confident that we will be successful. [applause] go-ahead. >> okay. hello. i am from indonesia asking a question on behalf of the online audience. so this question is for my
2:13 am
friend from indonesia also and asks about america is a big country with different tribes and religion and race. how do you unite them side-by-side in accordance [inaudible] >> that is a great question. thank you very much. you're exactly right that the united states historically unless you are a native american like those that met in montana, you came from someplace else. those of you to visit the united states if you walked on the streets in los angeles or new york, you don't know what an american looks like because americans could be anything.
2:14 am
they can be any color, any religion with a heritage from countries all around the world, and that's our greatest strength because one of the things i strongly believe is when people from different cultures intera interact, then you're always learning something because people bring new ideas and traditions and that's why in our big cities in america you can get good food from everywhere and then sometimes people come up with new food that's a mix of different foods. the same with music. if you think about rock 'n roll or hip-hop or any -- or jazz, any american music is a blend of all these different traditions
2:15 am
and that's part of what makes us unique. we all saw the olympic and not to brag but the united states did very well. part of this is because we are a big country and a wealthy country, so we can provide training and opportunities for our athletes. if you look at our athletes, there are two things that stand out. first of all, half, more than half of the medals we one were from women. so we passed a law a long time ago that said if you give sports opportunities to voice to the cowboys used to give them to girls its title number nine. and we developed an excellent program for the women's athletics. the second thing is because we have people that came from everywhere, we have people of all different types for every sport, so we have really tall
2:16 am
people that play basketball or swim, we have little people for gymnastics. [laughter] we have genetically for whatever sport, we have people who fit the sport. and that's a good metaphor for why i think we've been very successful. now, the challenge we have because we are a people from so many different places is that sometimes we've had to deal with racism or conflict between racist ethnic groups, new immigrants, and that especially becomes a problem when the economy isn't doing well and people feel stressed. typically when people feel stress, they turn on others who don't look like them.
2:17 am
that's true everywhere in the world. when things are going good, everyone is okay and is suddenly when things are harder, people start saying this is the fault of the chinese were the faul orf the jews or the fault of whatever. so, one of the things we try to do is make sure that we are continually reminding ourselves that what makes an american isn't your race or skin color, but what makes an american is a set of beliefs, the belief that all men are created equal, the belief that our constitution is the law of the land and
2:18 am
everybody has to follow it and everybody is equal so that if you are a president or you are a janitor, in the court of law you should be treated the same. we try to promote the notion that the state cannot choose sides in a religion. we have a very religious country but part of the reason america is religious is because we don't want the state establish one religion, so everybody is free to choose the religion they practice. and so, these ideas, these principles are the things that need to be constantly strengthened and reinforced, and i think automatically that's where we need to go as a human race. this is why sometimes we talk about issues like human rights
2:19 am
or freedom of the press for freedom oorfreedom of speech ane honest everywhere we go including here sometimes people say why you are the americans talking about these issues. it's none of their business. they shouldn't be meddling in other people's business. and also america isn't perfect. there's still racial discrimination and its own problems. it should worry about its own problems, and i agree with that in the sense that we definitely do have problems we have to work on. we still have discrimination and situations where women are not treated equally. i think that over the long term, the only way that humans are going to be able to work together and interact and prospered and deal with the
2:20 am
problems is if we are able to see what we have in common with each other and treat everybody with dignity and respect. and that means we have to have some principles that are not just based on our nationality. they are not just based on our tribe or religion or ethnicity. otherwise at some point we will not be able to get along. we will have the war and conflict because that is a big human history. this is why we talk about these issues when we travel to other countries as well. it's not because we think we are better than other people. it's because we have learned from our own experiences that if you don't respect all people, or you don't respect all religions
2:21 am
and also make sure no matter how religious you are you respect other people that have a different idea, we have learned that if that doesn't happen, we have conflict. and if you look at what's happening now in the middle east for example, that's not a problem in the middle east isn't primarily a problem of the west versus islam. the problem increasingly is thinking that the sudanese are following the wrong path and vice versa and if you are an alibi to or christian or then you are worried about what the sunni muslims are going to do
2:22 am
and in a place like rwanda in a matter of just a few months you saw a country killed, hundreds of thousands of people just because of those differences and that's been true in all parts of the world. so we have to fight against that and that means we have to be able to promote principles that rise above any individual religion, nationality, race. not only successfully. not everybody in america agrees with me on this by the way. i will leave it at that. okay. what country hasn't been -- [inaudible]
2:23 am
first of all it is a boy is turned -- boy's turn. here we go. [applause] good afternoon, mr. president. i'm from myanmar. almost three years now and my question is [inaudible] and how does that affect your administration in action? >> what is the best impact of what? [inaudible] and how does that affect your administration.
2:24 am
>> i don't think i can choose the best project because there've been so many good ones. i know that at the last town hall that we had, where were we? it was in ho chi minh city and before that, kuala lumpur. i'm going to point out there was a woman who had grown up in a small village and she had somehow traveled. her family couldn't afford to get her in education and she became a migrant and traveled on her own when she was very young and because she was so driven somehow she learned english and became part of this
2:25 am
international ngo and she had become a conservationist and traveled to the united states, learned about conservation disses and then was coming back to the communities here to help preserve the environment and to teach sustainable agriculture. i remember just listening to her story. you asked how this is affecting me. and she was about this big. she looked very young. and i thought if a young woman who wasn't born to wealth or a famous family, she wasn't famously connected. if she could suddenly make such an impact, then that means that anybody can make an impact.
2:26 am
and that's what inspired me as a president, the because it's not so much that her project was any better than the projects you're working on, it's just part of the point that in each of us, in each oand each of you, there isa potential to change the world. and you don't know exactly who is here that's going to make some world changing business or organization or environmental idea. but if we empower anybody, we will benefit from the talents of those people. this is true whether you are talking about not-for-profit work with business. i just came from china from the
2:27 am
hometown of the gentleman some of you may know. he's the founder of ali baba. so he's very wealthy now. but if you listen to jack's story, he basically started off as somebody who couldn't get into the top universities, taught himself english because he was interested in getting to america somehow. came back, started a business that he thought nobody would actually be successful. he couldn't get funding for it but he had this idea that the internet and computers were important and now has created
2:28 am
the biggest platform in asia for selling goods. if you look at him when he was 20-years-old, when he was your age, nobody would have predicted that he would be one of the most successful businessmen on earth. just like if you met mark zuckerburg of facebook wouldn't have predicted he would be the most successful in business history. it's also true in politics and government. all of you have enormous potential but you have to have very specific plans and you have to work really hard and pursue those plans with determination and dedication and if what you're trying isn't working then you have to try something different and not get discouraged because very few
2:29 am
people are successful right away. even the most successful people typically have some failures they have to learn from and not get discouraged. what other countries are their? philippines, yes the >> were noted as the only american president who was able to protect such a large area of land and sea. how were you able to justify and reconcile the idealistic concept of economic sustainability and development without exploiting the environment? thank you very much. thi >> that is a good question because you are so populated, there's so many people here and it's growing so fast, such a young population, but you have to ask some very tough questions
2:30 am
particularly because what we now know is that the model of development that we saw in the west using fossil fuels are not going to be sustainable. we are not going to be able to develop laos the same way as the united states. we will have to have a different model because of all of the countries and china and india, all we are using is much wailing and gas and coal as the west when it was developing we are all going to be underwater. the environment will not survive. so, what we have to do is first of all, leapfrog over the old models. and what they mean by that is to
2:31 am
come up with more efficient ways of doing the same thing. a good example of that although this isn't in the energy space, but it will describe what they mean if you travel through asia or africa, everybody's got a phone. but in the west, we had to weigh all of these wines can always undergroun, alwaysunderground ce line telephone poles. that's how we communicate. now, it would make no sense to rebuild all those cables. now you just have a cell phone tower because we have new technology. what's true in communications is also true in energy. part of what you're going to have to do is develop solar power and wind power and
2:32 am
hydropower. we have to come up with more efficient cars, more efficient appliances and this is part of what the paris agreement was all about was having each country come up with its own plans for reducing its carbon footprint without holding the countries back from their brevity to develop and insisting the wealthy countries develop to poor countries so they can develop faster by using new technologies rather than the old ones. but i think that every country has to recognize that there is no contradiction between conservation and development if you have a good plan.
2:33 am
the problem is that often times in order to have good planning, you have to have a government that has skills in identifying if we put a factory here, what's this going to do to the river? if we are going to see an expansion of population, are we going to build a mass transit system so that people can travel without everybody using their own car. that requires a level of planning and participation and listening to the community. when we were in vietnam, the biggest stories was a factory. there was some sort of manufacturing company that whatever they were doing to the
2:34 am
water it appeared as if it was killing all the fish. there were these days that thousands of fish were floating up to the surface and so there were a lot of people still depending on fish for their livelihoods. so that's not a good model over the long-term. so, when the factory put in its application the government may have thought to itself this is great for development but if it's creating jobs for the people in the factory and destroying jobs for the people who fish, then the total sum of the development is lower than it could be and if they planned ahead of time than they could have built the factory that maybe had a filter, it might have cost a little bit more but it also would havalso would havr was maintained and supported
2:35 am
thing for young peoplsomething e you whether you are in government or ngo, you're going to have to learn the best practices so that you can still grow but you do so in a way that can be sustained over a long period of time. the united states is still learning to do this and we've been at this a long time. we used to have terrible pollution everywhere and we ultimately passed laws like the clean air and clean water act and what we discovered is when you set rules to preserve the environment that companies build trust and they will find new and innovative ways to make the same products and same amount of money but in a way that is good for the environment. so usually if you see the
2:36 am
environment destroyed, it's not because it's necessary for development, it's usually because they are being lazy and not as creative as we could be about how to do it in a smarter sustainable way. [applause] any other countries we haven't caught on yet? okay. vietnam? okay. right here. [applause] i'm from vietnam and i'd like to ask about tdp. [inaudible] it includes four countries, singapore, malaysia and vietnam.
2:37 am
that's a far the government has sent out a faded so do we believe that it could be ratified otherwise what should have been? >> it will be ratified because it's the right thing to do. we are in a political season now and it's difficult to get things done. congress isn't doing much right now. they are all going home and talking to their constituents trying to get reelected. ..
2:38 am
>> >> and everybody will be pour if we don't do that. so right now around the world that in some ways it is understandable because and indians countries in the wealthier countries they feel as if the old manufacturing jobs have gone to china and places with
2:39 am
cheaper labor will were environmental standards. so even the lead the united states is still very wealthy there are places where they can go someplace else and that happens over the course of last 30 years. to know the trade wasn't good for them. i have to explain first of all if we do nothing we will not bring those jobs back then we enter into agreements with countries like vietnam we can create new businesses and have newscasters and yes vietnam may sell shoes and shirts
2:40 am
but we are selling software and jet engines said both countries can grow together. one of the problems we have seen is that the profits of trade have gone to the wealthy people who accompanies but not to the workers. we have asked entries of vietnam that want to be a part of it to start raising their standards for their workers because they have more above voice of their wages.
2:41 am
so of standards rise then they're not competing with the u.s. worker just for who can pay workers the of the east or put them in the most unsafe conditions but instead flu is working with the product that is the competition we all benefit from. i believe we will get it done but it will always be hard. nothing is easy. nothing in the u.s. congress right now. maybe it could be worse by haven't seen a. class question? after saying so many nice things the finest the dinner
2:42 am
i will be in trouble. i cannot hear everybody. malaysia and cambodia. that is a lot of countries. [applause] thank you for the opportunities. and also to your wife and with the healthy kids initiative that has changed nutrition world wide. so what about the future of global health?
2:43 am
the. >> first of all my wife will continue right thing to work on this initiative. but she will probably be more and involved internationally than she has spent now that our girls are getting older she can travel more a used to me she did not like to go to far away for too long because she wanted to make sure the girls were doing their homework. and now that they are grown i think she will work on these issues even more. in terms of global health i think there are different stages on. and in developing countries there are things we know how to do we just have to do the
2:44 am
embargo -- them. with clean drinking water or sanitation systems that may not be ideal or care in clinics that don't require technology, to prevent malaria, but there is a lot of low hanging fruit that can save so many lies. because we still have infant mortality of those dying of childbirth but so that is one set of issues. the second set has to do with prosperity and as people get wealthier one, and they start to get fatter, more diseases
2:45 am
associated with modern life. but what is interesting that problems like diabetes used to be in wealthier countries now you see that pop up in countries like mexico that did it use to have these problems but they have changed their lifestyle and eating habits. the third set of issues deals with cancer in more or alzheimer's that really have to do with new science and new technology. one thing i have done in
2:46 am
this invest heavily in research how can we crack the code on human genetics? we think the time will come that this person has a tendency because of the variation to develop cures before the diseases kill them. weekend save a lot of lives by dealing with the things we know how to do. so cambodia by the way
2:47 am
everybody looks very good in their native clothes. but i appreciate how vice anybody looks. i am sure the question was taken by one of the of fellows. if they were implemented in the united states always that? [applause] >> that's a good question. for those of you who didn't hear the question the spain development goals based on the original set of goals
2:48 am
keep in mind how much progress we have made over the last 20 years the number of people we have seen rise out are now able to have enough hoopla of infant mortality. soviet-made real progress worldwide. but we have to make similar progress going forward if we have work to do in the united states and although we're still evaluating that the areas we still fall short are still too many children and poverty in the united states.
2:49 am
but in parts of india of or china or cambodia or laos but children who are very poor. who still are not getting enough to eat. that is also connected to education. with education in a country so wealthy i would say the way forward for us involves addressing those pockets and we have enough wealth to do that but the question is if we have the political will to make investments with
2:50 am
four african-americans and latinos. you are still held back his starkly by discrimination. and sometimes it is harder to get the whole society as a whole. if we be successful we have to do that because the united states by the year 2015 which is only 35 years from now will no longer be majority white. because the birth rates of the hispanic background but also asians is much faster and much higher.
2:51 am
so the kids today that airport are not provided an opportunity that is the work force of the future and where we have to make the most progress. what was the last country? malaysia. >> sol in solidarity not my country but in america itself that protect the insulin dash ancestral land. so my question is in what capacity to protect that ancestral land.
2:52 am
>> that is a great question. [applause] >> the way the native americans were treated was tragic and one of these priorities is restoring an honest and generous and respectful relationship with native american tribes. we have made the unprecedented investment to help them ideas and plans of economic development or education. that is culturally
2:53 am
appropriate for them. and this issue of ancestral land to preserve a way of life is something we have worked very hard on. now some of these issues of laws and treaties taken not give you details on this particular case i would have to go back to my staff to find out how we're doing. but i can tell you we have actually restored more rights upon the americans to the ancestral land bowater is, hunting grounds, we have done a lot more work on that and we have the previous 20 years and i hope this will continue as we go forward.
2:54 am
that is an excellent question. now let me say this in closing. has been a great group thanks to the university for hosting us and the people for being such wonderful partners in this process and for all the young people here, i will tell you the same thing i tell young people in the united states. sometimes because we have so much information from all around the world television television, computers, phones , it seems as if the world is falling apart. because we always get information there is a war here or a terrible environmental disaster there . conflict here. this horrible issue is happening. everybody shouting and
2:55 am
everybody hates each other. you get depressed. using what is happening? but the truth is when you look at all the measures of well-being in the world, if you had a choice of when to be born and you did not know who you were be or what nationality or male or female or religion go when in human history would be the best time to be born? that would be now the world has never been healthier healthier, wealthier, better educated, less violent, more tolerant than it is today. we don't always see that because of the terrible things happening around the
2:56 am
world with the tragedies and injustices' and it is your job to fix tuition never be discouraged because you have more opportunity today to make a difference in the world than any generation before in my hope is you will seize that opportunity and no you'll have a strong partner and friend in the united states of america when you do. [applause] >> one last thing that will try to shake some hands but a can shake everybody or can take pictures of all the different other three hours because i have to go.

>> border. statement. the prime minister. >> with permission of a tunica state a tunica state and mag on the g20 summit in china. before i turn to the g20 would like to say something about the process of brexit paid the british people were asked to vote on whether we should stay at the e.u. are they. the majority decided to grieve. we would not deliver the will of the british people negotiate the best possible deal for our country. people are keen to see rapid progress and understand what post brexit britain will look like. getting on with that letter word i must think through the issues
3:47 am
and a sober and considered way. this is about getting the kind of deal that is ambitious and bold for britain. not about the norway model, space-bar the burning of the country's model. it's about developing our own british model. so we will not take decisions until we are ready. we will not reveal our hand prematurely and we will not provide a running commentary on every negotiation. and i say that because that is not the best way to conduct amateur negotiation to deliver the best deal for the people of this country. they told the house on monday what we will do is that the mines the opportunities for brexit represents and that is the approach i took to the g20 summit. this was the first time [shouting] this was the first time that the world leading economists have
3:48 am
come together since the uk's decision to leave the e.u. and demonstrated the leading boat we continue to play to the bold, ambitious and outward looking nation. building on our strength is a great trading nation, we were clear we had to resist a retreat to protectionism and had conversations about how we can explore around the world. we initiate important discussions on responding to rising globalization sentiment and showing the world economy works for everyone. we play our part in working with our allies to confront the global challenges of migration. mr. speaker, trading with partners around the globe and the foundation of our prosperity in the past will underpin our prosperity in the future. under my leadership as they leave the e.u., britain will speak to the global leader in free trade. at this time that we secure widespread agreement across the
3:49 am
g20 two resist protectionism and the rollback of protectionist measures. tg 20 committed to ratifying the wto agreement to reduce the cost of the burden of goods across borders and more to encourage female friends to take advantage of global supply chains. britain continued to press for ambitious e.u. trade agenda including implementing the dl in forging agreements with japan and america and we will make these arguments is these arguments as fun as they are members of the e.u. we will also force our round of trade deals and i am pleased to say that just as the u.k. can't see the opportunities late in the opportunities within the e.u. presents, so two of international partners who recognize the attractiveness of doing business with the u.k. the literature of india, mexico,
3:50 am
south korea and singapore are welcome -- the trade minister visited the u.k. yesterday to take part in exploratory discussion and trade deals and in our bilateral end of the summit, in our bilateral again at the summit, president of blood made clear that china would welcome discussions on the trade arrangement with the u.k. as we do free trade around the world, we must also do more to ensure working people really benefit the opportunities it creates. across the world today, many feel these opportunities do not seem to come to them. they feel lack of control over their life. they have a job that no job security, a home but worry about paying the mortgage. life is hard and it's not enough for government to take a hands-off approach. i argue that we need to deliver an economy that works for everyone with bolt action at
3:51 am
home and cooperation abroad. that is why in britain we develop a popular strategy to improve product to fit in every part of the country somewhere people can share and higher real wages and greater opportunities for young people and to restore we will be consulting new measures to tackle corporate responsibility. these will include excessive corporate pay, poor corporate governance from a short-term aggressive tax avoidance and give employees and customers representation of customer boards. at the g20 come of this nation that the economy works for everyone but echoes by other leaders in the agenda that britain will continue to lead in the months and years ahead. together we agreed to continue at first to fight corruption the london sunday and more to stop tax avoidance including stopping companies avoiding tax by shifting profits from one jurisdiction to the other. we agreed to work together to
3:52 am
the production of heavy industries in the steel market and will establish a new forum to discuss issues that contribute to market distortion. mr. speaker, all the steps are important if we are to retain support in the open economies which are the bedrock of global growth. turning to global security, britain remains at the heart of the fight against -- and discussed the need to manage the threat of foreign fighters dispersing from syria, iraq and libya. we call the proper enforcement of u.n. sanctions regime to limit the end of terrorist organizations and action to improve the standard aviation security including the resolution which the u.k. could be pursuing in which we hope will be later this month. we also agree they need to confront the ideology that underpinned the terrorism. that means addressing violent and nonviolent extremists had been working across borders to
3:53 am
tackle radicalization online. britain will continue to meet our promises including through humanitarian efforts to support refugee and make further commitments the president about ms. summit in new york later this month. tg 20 i also argue that we cannot shy away from dealing with illegal migration and returning to the u.n. general assembly. we need to improve the way we distinguish between refugees and migrants. this will enable economies to benefit economic migration in doing so get our help to refugees who need it and retain popular support for doing so. this doesn't just protect our people. by reducing the scope of the mass population movements today and at the same time addressing the underlying drivers of mass migration we can achieve better outcomes for the migrants themselves. as part of the new approach we also need a much more concerted
