The AIBs 2017 were presented by Matthew Amroliwala of Global, the flagship programme on BBC World News, broadcast Monday to Thursday from 1500 to 1630 GMT.

He joined the BBC’s international news channel in September 2014 from the UK service, where he had been the lead presenter for over a decade.

Matthew joined the BBC in 1989. Before he started anchoring news coverage in the studio, he worked in the field as a foreign correspondent, a political correspondent and as a news reporter.

He has covered many of the major news stories in the last two decades both at home and abroad. As a presenter he broadcast continuously for six hours on the day of the 7/7 bombings in London; while as a foreign correspondent he has reported from Bosnia, New York and Washington.

Matthew has also been at the forefront of the BBC’s UK political coverage on the News Channel, having presented all the major set piece events of the Westminster political calendar such as the Budget and the Queen’s Speech.

He was nominated by the Television and Radio Industry Club as Reporter of the Year in 1993 for his reporting on the Troubles in Northern Ireland and went on to cover the IRA ceasefire in 1997 and the Good Friday Agreement.
