Iran Sanctions Lifted

January 18th, 2016

Episode 439 of 674 episodes

We look at "the turning of a golden page in Iran's history". That's the way Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has described the latest deal to lift international sanctions on his country after ten years of economic isolation. But how will it change Iran, and with the global oil price heading through the floor in anticipation, how will it change the rest of the world? We hear from two contrasting perspectives - Amrita Sen, oil analyst with Energy Aspects, and by Azadeh Meskarian of the London law firm Zaiwalla & Co, which specialises in sanctions issues. Also in the programme, we have a report from Jakarta on a new start-up delivering human breast milk door-to-door. Is this a world first? And Lucy Kellaway looks at what she reckons is the rather oversold art of story-telling in Business. (Picture: Iranians shop in Tehran's ancient Grand Bazaar; Credit: Atta Kenare/AFP/Getty Images)
