From the BBC World Service… As the U.S. and China struggle on trade talks, Japan and the E.U. are cheering a new trade arrangement between them that starts today. It creates one of the world's biggest free trade areas covering nearly a third of global economic activity. Then, ahead of elections in India, the government unveils its new budget. Afterwards, drones have been the subject of much controversy in recent months — remember the one that grounded flights at London's Heathrow airport? But, in Africa, the flying technology presents huge potential for business and economic development.

Today's show is sponsored by the Alliance for Lifetime Income and Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage.
