Start me up: World's biggest startup hub opens in Paris

The largest startup hub in the world, Station F, is opening its doors in Paris. The project is backed by French telecoms billionaire Xavier Niel and will house hundreds of fledgling companies in a former railway depot. We speak to one of the firms moving into the site. Also in this programme, we look at a major overhaul of India's tax system. Finally, as Thailand tries to attract richer visitors to new luxury resorts, we ask if the country is turning its back on backpackers.
