Brexit and the City: Calculating the risks of leaving the EU

The countdown to Britain's referendum on whether to remain part of the European Union is on. What would leaving the EU mean for Britain's financial industry? FRANCE 24's Markus Karlsson talks to market commentator David Buik (Panmure Gordon), who has spent his career in the City. He tells us why he is in favour of a Brexit.

Also in this programme, we take a look at a political storm brewing in France over a proposal to change labour laws. The most controversial part of the plan would make it easier for firms to fire workers. It's meeting stiff opposition from unions, who say the government is siding with the business lobby Medef.

Plus, France's aerospace industry is getting creative to quench its thirst for young recruits. Airbus even runs its own school to train up talent and get them onto the assembly line. Chris Bockman reports from Toulouse in the southwest of France.
