In the aftermath of several deadly blasts in Brussels, we assess the impact on the region. Pieter Timmermans of the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium tells us that workers in the country are staying calm. But Simon Calder, travel editor of The Independent thinks tourists could well be deterred from visiting Europe. Meanwhile countries across the continent are stepping up security. We assess the most potentially helpful measures with Norman Shanks, professor of aviation security at Coventry Universityin the UK. Also in the programme, former Intel chief executive Andy Grove has died at the age of 79. We consider this 'giant' of the technology world's legacy with technology forecaster Paul Saffo. And the BBC's Matt McGrath tells us how businesses in Malawi cope with the daily reality of power shortages in the country. (Picture: Brussels airport after the blasts.
