Today's Focus

On Money For Nothing we'll talk about the sticky issues that need to be addressed before the HK-Shanghai stock connect comes into effect. Joining us for that discussion is Fraser Howie, Senior Director at Newedge Financial and author of Red Capitalism and Privatising China. We will also look at what's driving China's electric vehicle makers. Shares of BYD Co. and other green-vehicle makers were up sharply on Wednesday, lifted by reports the central government may spend 100 billion yuan to build a nationwide network of recharging stations. The FT's Tom Mitchell and Macquarie Research analyst Janet Lewis will be along for that. Later in the program we will also speak to Peter Thal Larsen of Reuters Breakingviews about the agenda of Indonesia's president -elect Joko Widodo.(8am-9am, facebook or email
