OPEC members to cut oil production for first time in eight years

Crude oil catches the light as it floats on the sea

OPEC has agreed to cut oil production for the first time in eight years. The announcement came as the trading bloc, of which the UAE is a member, battles a weak market and a global glut of crude. It was proposed to reduce output to between 32.5 and 33 million barrels per day. Details of the deal, including targets for each country, are still to be finalised.
