Ukraine in recovery: Economy shows signs of progress after deep recession

It's been three years since the conflict in eastern Ukraine pushed the country close to economic collapse. The currency lost 70 percent of its value against the dollar, inflation spiked at more than 60 per cent and the budget deficit ballooned. Thanks to a major debt restructuring deal and an IMF bailout, things are now looking up for Ukraine's economy. Stephen Carroll talks to Oleksandr Danylyuk, the Ukrainian finance minister.

Also in this programme:

  • FRANCE 24's Kate Moody crunches the numbers about Iran's major deal with energy giant Total. Will it encourage other investors to move in?
  • Plus we report from China, where bike-sharing schemes could be hitting a speed bump!
