a most of the code looks. good to me. about ten minutes time but it's the weekend business with. hello welcome to our business program i'm surrounded. by a high tech country needs to make high tech products the government is putting its political and financial capital behind modernizing the economy but it also needs to find innovative goods the rest of the world might want to buy that tell you how close reports. the gigantic ultramodern building of called innovation
6:24 am
center these days it's attracting a lot of interest from those who in the near future could change the face of both russian science and its economy speaking at the forum the presidential aide even went as far as saying that russia may become the world leader in innovation within the next five years but for that to happen talent needs to be nurtured and harnessed such as that belonging to this fifteen year old muscovite was not this model is built with a legacy construction kate it's intended for people with limited hand movement it is constructed on the principle of human biomechanics and fully replicates the hands function i'm currently expanding my project and i hope it will soon help even those who are paralyzed three times that they had a roof not a was more cautious and preferred not to unveil details of their breakthrough projects but assured that there were at least three that could change the world and it was the sense of exciting potential that was attracting
6:25 am
a new wave of private capital to come to russia a number of. other what you got this is what this is about eleven billion dollars yeah what is the border for me that we. are investing eleven billion less than fifty percent or more. topics from the road to the top five sectors prioritize to drive russia's modernization our energy efficiency. nuclear in space technology medicine telecommunications and on but some of the most interesting projects have universal appeal and cut across all areas of the economy and society this is what the library of the future should look like in the eyes of some young russian inventors they believe it could be a real money spinner in just the last year more than one hundred thousand people have paid to join their start up service booth scientists and businessmen agree
6:26 am
that finding talent in russia is not the major problem the skolkovo research group has already found many exciting and innovative candidates the trick will be to harness that into primary or energy to produce goods that will make the whole world sit up and take notice and then get out its wallet. r t moscow. two thousand and eleven will see more changes in the banking system with some players leaving the market and the rules getting stricter speaking exclusively to r.t. deputy general director of russia's deposit insurance agency under miller cough spoke about the upcoming reforms. so there is that those are the only changes we think we should make is to create procedures so that the assets and deposits of a bank or bank are given to a healthy one that's the situation we see in the states at the moment in the us in ninety five percent of cases this mechanism is being implemented the clients of the
6:27 am
bankrupt banks are given access to their deposits quicker also the agency together with the state doesn't have to spend a lot of money and the liquidation process is faster so now we think this mechanism could be used in our country we have already tried it several times and found that it works we think it is possible and this will also give us more but unities to save capital reserves the central bank plans to raise the minimum capital requirement for retail banks do you think this will force a more banks into liquidation starting score sector are back a question this move lies in the overall strategy to develop the banking sector last year the minimum level was three million dollars the next step is six million dollars until the end of two thousand and eleven for all banks to fulfill this obligation the system needs capital reserves of some three hundred million dollars i don't think this is a crucial figure so i believe the russian banking system will see another minimal
6:28 am
level increase and this will prompt further reduction in the number of banks present in the market next year i expect this to for some ten to twelve banks to leave the sector but this will not be critical for the whole system. do you see more consolidation in the banking market next year i think on every year around fifty banks leave the market next year our forecast is that some thirty banks will have to be shut down but you can never really say exactly how many banks our country needs the main aim is for all of these banks to function properly currently we have around one thousand banks in the market and they cooperate quite well with each other. and russian companies enjoyed a successful rebound from the crisis in two thousand and ten as investors increasingly turn to emerging markets but a select group emerged as big winners and potential gainers in two thousand and
6:29 am
eleven float ended the year well as it was laying choi a rebound in consumer demand and a recovering economy mark rubenstein from metropole explains why russian carrier will continue to interest investors in two thousand and eleven are for more on this stock said basically that you can use to play their theme of fast recovery consumer demand in russia which is fast recovering indeed and this is going continue in my view in two thousand and eleven and there are flawed is certainly in the sector which is which is around the circle sectors which has a high correlation with their consumer demand powerful and so there's going to be the beneficiaries of that growth because it's in their line. and that's your business update for this hour but you can always find more business stories on our website that's our t. dot com slash business stay with us.
