(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service … Eurozone growth slowed in the first quarter from the final three months of last year. So, does it take European Central Bank rate hikes off the table for this year? Then, if you thought getting Congress to agree on a budget annually is hard, try getting 28 nations to agree on a plan once every seven years. We’ll investigate the complexities of European Union budget negotiations and why Brexit is making this round especially tricky. Afterwards, what’s in a name? For Macedonia, a lot. We’ll explain why the country must pick between keeping its name or gaining access to the EU.
