The Asia-Africa Summit has opened in Jakarta with more than 30 heads of state planning to attend the meeting, including the leaders of China, Japan, Brunei, Malaysia and Myanmar. But how will either side benefit from the conference? The Scottish National Party has become the latest UK party to announce its plans for government should it be elected. The SNP's deputy leader Stewart Hosie tells Dominic Laurie about its proposals. We'll also hear from the BBC's Karishma Vaswani in Indonesia. And our guests joining us throughout the programme will be Severine Autesserre of Columbia University in New York. She's the author of 'The Trouble with Congo' and 'Peaceland: Conflict Resolution and the Everyday Politics of International Intervention'. And Tony Nash of Delta Economics is in Singapore.
