US aid to Pakistan

18 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 11 May 2011

What has been the effect on Pakistan's business climate from the chill in relations with the US?

Lesley Curwen talks to Kamran Mizra, the chief executive of the Pakistan Business Council. He admits the discovery of Osama bin Laden's home near a Pakistani army barracks has increased suspicion about the country and affected its image abroad.

And he suggests more US aid should be funnelled to the private sector rather than government.

And from New York, Austin Long, Professor of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, explains how the financial relationship works between America and Pakistan.

Plus, is this the most dangerous job in the world? The BBC's Anbasaran Ethirajan travels with the honey gatherers of Bangladesh as they brave tigers, crocodiles and snakes.
