BBC Appoints Global Trade Correspondent

News Image
Dharshini David has been appointed Global Trade Correspondent for BBC News.

The newly created role will enhance the BBC's coverage of trade at a time when it is making headlines every day.

From the changing world order to Brexit and the environment, trade is a story which is having a major impact on people's lives. As Global Trade Correspondent, Dharshini will join the dots, explaining what is happening and why it is happening. She will provide a global perspective for international and domestic audiences, contributing to BBC News output across television, radio and online.

Dharshini is familiar to BBC News audiences, presenting business news for Radio 4's Today programme and covering economics for all outlets. She has interviewed many key global figures - from Prime Ministers to central bank governors and FTSE 100 CEOs.

She said: "I am thrilled and privileged to be taking on this hugely important role at the BBC at a crucial time. International trade can be dismissed as dry and complex but globalisation has shaped all our fortunes - for better or worse - in recent years. The new decade is going to be defined by radical changes in trading relationships. I’m looking forward to working with my BBC colleagues to strip away the spin and speculation, to explain to our audiences what lies in store - and exactly what this means for them."
