Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene was regarded by businessmen and investors as a competent steward of South Africa's economy, the second largest in Africa. His departure - after being fired by President Jazob Zuma - has spooked stock markets, triggering the biggest drop in the value of the rand currency for four years. The shock removal comes a week after the Fitch credit rating agency downgraded South Africa to just one step above junk status. Nene's sacking also follows growing disillusionment and protests against South Africa's ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC). So, how will the ANC cope with the latest blow to the battered economy? Presenter: Jane Dutton.

#Brexit The 500km border between Ireland and Northern Ireland is possibly one of the biggest obstacles in Britain’s departure from the EU, and there is no agreed plan of what it will look like after May 2020. British PM Theresa May has made several speeches in the past week outlining her vision for the UK’s future economic relationship with the EU, and its exit strategy. She has ruled out the return of physical infrastructure on the border between Ireland and the Republic, but provided few details on how to prevent customs checks. She is also pushing for a free trade deal that many EU lawmakers have criticised. We’ll take a look at the issue of the border between Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in ongoing Brexit negotiations. #55Strong In the US state of West Virginia, public sc...

South Africa remains at risk of losing its credit ratings status, that will make the cost of debt higher, but plans are in place to turn the economy around. Sumitra Nydoo reports that policy implementation and structural reforms need to happen quickly.
According to figures released by South Africa's statistics body, the economy is officially out of recession. South Africa slipped into a technical recession earlier this year, after recording two consecutive quarters of negative growth. The latest GDP data, however, shows the economy grew 2.5% between April and June. While growth was expected, most economists predicted it would come in lower, at around 2.1%.
