China's New Leadership Team Unveiled

We ask what the new makeup of China's ruling elite means for both China and the world

We ask what the new makeup of China's ruling elite means for both China and the world. Rebecca Nadin is a China expert at the London think tank the Overseas Development Institute, and offers us her assessment. Also in the programme, Britain's economic growth rate has accelerated slightly. We take the temperature of the British economy with our regular commentator, Roger Bootle of Capital Economics. New Zealand's new prime minister Jacinda Ardern has pledged to curtail rising house prices by banning non-resident foreigners from buying homes in the country. Colin Peacock of Radio New Zealand tells us if the plan is likely to work. Plus we hear why a British celebrity has fallen foul of the UK's advertising watchdog because of her activity on Snapchat.
