it through for more radical form or this there is this kind of reform that the president is now asking for a new government and that some people are saying ok let's give him a chance maybe this will lead to something and some are saying no we don't trust these faces they've been ruling the country for 30 years and that's more than i've heard you say very ruling the country for 30 years so why are these protests happening now i think you know we've seen these protests and they really dominated by a much much younger generation that i think you know grew up in the post civil war lebanon and you know the terrorism has very very deep roots in lebanon's history it all goes all the way back to the ottoman empire was put into law by after the french occupation but was reinstated after the civil war to ensure that the different political religious groups in lebanon can live together and that this power sharing can ensure peace but these young people all they have from the power sharing or all they've seen from this power sharing set up is corruption lack of employment and they don't really identify with this kind of division of power and

could value it even higher. prince mohammed bin salmond wants to reduce the kingdom's reliance on oil and you a small fraction of stock will be sold at 1st on the local exchange in riyadh. we get more this from a different can from d.w. business welcome place a sort of tell us more that about the world's biggest oil company well it really is the biggest it's a big he must it produces 10 percent of the world's oil it's owned by the saudi royal family it's fairly secretive in the way it operates and so we've never really had much of an insight into into how it works but it's really a giant by somebody way since it's worth nearly as much as aapl and microsoft put together and it counts for 70 percent of all the revenue for saudi arabia as well so it's hugely important to the economy too so what does this i.p.o. mean then for the energy market where we need to see who buys the shares that's one thing because if you give us

a look into into iran code to see how it works if they do open it up more widely internationally climate complainers right now are talking about you know having less fossil fuel and separating fossil fuel from money so in some ways this moves towards. towards things like. the opposite direction basically and they've constantly bottles efforts to cut carbon emissions so it's going to see more of a focus on fossil fuels rather than less so in terms of the overall energy market in some ways it's going to be a different direction from what we've been looking for before and so is that what's behind the saudi arabia's idea of diversifying its economy away from oil well i think one of the things that they've talked about that prince mohammed bin solomon has always said is that they eventually do need to get out of oil they've got maybe 70 years of oil left in saudi arabia so they're thinking about a post oil world and as i've said you know 70 percent of the revenue comes from oil so they're looking at things like. they're looking at tourism in
7:11 pm
a big way there's been a lot of efforts recently to promote tourism and they're looking at manufacturing renewable energy growth and focus on small and medium sized enterprises so they're basically looking for any other way on the other way to generate revenue we've seen places like the emirates they've bought. football teams are 6 months easy in the emirates airlines and things about haven't seen as much of that coming from saudi arabia so they've got a lot of pressure on them too they're feeling a lot of pressure not to diversify they do actually have 10 percent unemployment too so it's this over reliance on oil even though it's a very very rich country and they still have a lot of issues economically that they need to do it so well to take in they will say we'll see how that goes for another cliff a current from date of the business thank you. sport and lewis hamilton is just hours away from a potential 6th form in a long title the british drive it needs to finish 8th or better the u.s. grown pretty to secure the championship it was only 50 asked a single qualified but with
