Suning Commerce Group is paying $306m for 68% of Inter Milan football club. Associated Press football writer Rob Harris tells us why the Chinese are keen to invest in European football. Also in the programme, with Peru's presidential election too close to call, we talk to Dr Alfredo Thorne, who is likely to be the country's finance minister if Pedro Pablo Kuczynski wins. A company offering solar energy to some of India's poorest people, and a firm building bridges in remote parts of Africa are both winners of the Ashden International Awards, which recognise the world's most sustainable businesses. Ajaita Shah, chief executive of Frontier Markets, and Brooke Segerberg from Bridges to Prosperity tell us more about their work. And Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times wonders if the top graduate jobs at some of the world's biggest blue chip companies are all they're cracked up to be.
