    Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about urban development and city clusters in mainland China. President Xi Jinping has stressed the importance of the city cluster​ concept  as an engine to drive economic growth. China plans to boost regional development for a total of 19 clusters by 2020, including the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. What are the potential benefits for developing megacities? Will this coordinated urban development attract more talent, labour, public services, housing and transport development? How likely will this be to boost economic growth and productivity in the region? And what about the potential environmental threats such as air pollution? Leave us a message, or email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or call us on 23388266.

    Elderly Services and Ageing Population / Ticket Scalping

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Mike Rowse

    On Monday's Backchat, are we doing enough to prepare for life in an increasingly ageing society?​ ​ A Legislative Council report says that despite an increase in social​ ​ welfare spending,​ ​ the proportion allocated to services for the elderly is the same as it was​ ​ four years ago, and​ ​ it questions whether such an approach is adequate to meet the needs of a​ ​ greying population.​ ​ So what needs to be done? Should the administration give greater priority​ ​ to elderly care?​ ​ Which services are most pressingly required? How do Hong Kong's​ ​ preparations for the future​ ​ compare with those of other cities? Leave us a message, or email us at​ ​ backchat@rthk.hk, or​ ​ call us on 23388266. After 9.20, calls for a crackdown on ticket touts.
