May 22nd, 2015

Episode 254 of 836 episodes

Ahead of elections in Ethiopia, Business Daily looks at one of Africa's more remarkable tales of recovery: more than a decade of double-digit growth, in what was once a by-word for war and famine. But has freedom been a casualty of Ethiopia's growth story? Also in the programme, we have a report examining the remarkable property boom affecting many of Africa's biggest cities. And in the last of her series of reports from Israel and the Palestinian territories, the BBC's Marie Keyworth looks at the challenges facing Israeli farmers and other businesses operating near to the border with Gaza.
