Frank Holmes speaks with Catherine Murray on BNN’s Business Day PM about the potential recovery of gold demand in China, spurred on by the multibillion-dollar oil deal between it and Russia.

More good news for gold consumption comes out of India, whose newly-elected prime minister, Narendra Modi, promises to grow the nation’s economy and GDP per capita.
