Skip Montreux & Dez Morgan are back together again! Today they talk you through everything you need to know about the history and geopolitical forces behind the Iran-Pakistan pipeline.
Skip: Hello everyone. Skip Montreux here welcoming you to an all new episode of Down to Business English.
Dez: And this is Dez Morgan. A big hello to all returning and new listeners.
Skip: How are things with you Dez?
Dez: Working really hard at the moment Skip.
Skip: I certainly don’t see you online very much recently. What have you been up to?
Dez: Mainly with IELTS testing, along with all my usual teaching work. How about you?
Skip: I have been up to my eyeballs with work recently as well. April is the beginning of the fiscal year for most companies here in Japan, and that means many of my clients are renewing their language training programs.
Dez: I don’t know about you but I don’t even get time to read through the business headlines in the morning at the moment.
Skip: Well I don’t get as much time as I would like to either, but I was reading a very interesting business story from your neck of the woods the other day. Well it was Iran anyway, and that is near you, right?

Skip: It dealt with Iran and Pakistan planning to build a gas pipeline to connect the two countries.
Dez: I bet that the US is not very happy about that!
Skip: No, they are not very happy at all.
Dez: Although I haven’t heard that story I do know some of the geopolitical background.
Skip: Great! So lets do it, lets get D2B…Down to Business, with the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline. continue reading…
