These countries are under consideration for upgrade from frontier to emerging market status with a decision expected on Tuesday. Then he checks in with economics professor and United Nations Commission Member Atif Kubursi in Vienna, en route back from Egypt on what it needs to become attractive. He finishes with European Correspondent Mario Marcinek in Bratislava Slovakia and an examination of reports suggesting that the recession is almost over in the developed countries there.
