About the programme

Using the BBC’s extensive network of bureaux and correspondents across Asia, it is the wake-up show for those wanting to know what the business day will bring.

Telling the big economic stories and bringing them to life, the programme explains how they affect Asia as a whole and you as an individual.

Broadcast live from our Singapore studio, Asia Business Report is presented by Rico Hizon and Sharanjit Leyl with a team of locally-employed producers and reporters to give the region's perspective on the world of business.

The presenters speak to the region's most influential business leaders to grill them about their companies' performance and to reveal their perspectives on the global economy.
