    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.

    Is Beijing cracking down or softening up on Hong Kong? / Stray dogs in Sai Kung

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Anna Fenton

    On Tuesday's Backchat, is Beijing cracking down or softening up on Hong Kong? The HKMAO director said last week that the integration of HK and Macao with the Mainland's economic and infrastructure development must be achieved with full respect for the two SARGs' views and circumstances. Some take that to be a sign of a more conciliatory tone. Others point to the official policy of “comprehensive jurisdiction” of Beijing, the prosecution of pan-democrats and new rules on the eligibility of election candidates as well as the operation of Legco; the new anthem law, co-location, educational reform and more emphasis placed on the role of the CCP, as signs that Beijing is pursuing a much tougher line, or even a slow motion crackdown. What do you think? How many changes are actually directed by the Central Government, and how many arise from the local administration second-guessing? Or is there no significant change in the underlying policy? Call us with your thoughts on 23388266 . After 9.20, stray dog island off Sai Kung.
