German Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU party is voting to choose its next leader. The BBC's Damien McGuinness is in Berlin and brings us the latest developments. Also in the programme, the Gulf Cooperation Council is holding a summit in Riyadh over the weekend. Given tensions between Qatar and other members of the council, we ask Wadah Khanfar of the al-Sharq Foundation what the point of the GCC summit is. We travel to the Indian state of Punjab to meet an entrepreneur who provides intricate needlework badges to military service men and women across the globe. Plus we look back at the rest of the week's big business stories with Lisa Abramowicz of Bloomberg in New York, and Lianna Brinded, head of Yahoo Finance UK in London.
