Greece: IMF Rocks the Boat

July 15th, 2015

Episode 306 of 836 episodes

A leaked IMF report has caused new problems for the eurozone bailout of Greece the day it is due to go to a vote in the Athens parliament, by in effect claiming the country is insolvent. Presenter Manuela Saragosa gets the latest from the BBC's Tanya Beckett in the Greek capital. Also, as China claims its economy grew 7% in the second quarter of the year, we hear from Mark Boleat, policy chairman at the City of London Corporation, who has just returned from China where he is seeking to help open up the country's financial markets for trading in the Chinese renminbi. Plus, we hear from Phil Mercer in Christchurch, New Zealand, where a new city is slowly emerging from the rubble of the 2011 earthquake. (Photo: IMF head Christine Lagarde.
