From the BBC World Service… China’s 40-year long march towards reform has transformed a once poor country into the world's second largest economy. President Xi Jinping has vowed to continue the march, but on Beijing's own terms. Will its trade war with the U.S. and a Great Wall of debt hamper the Asian giant’s efforts? Then, U.K. soccer club Manchester United's manager is out. What does his ouster mean for one of the world's most powerful entertainment businesses? Plus, the gender gap has narrowed, but it will still take more than a century to close. From the school desk to the workplace, what needs to change?
