    Judicial Review of Colocation Arrangement

    On Friday's Backchat, co-location. The High Court ruled on Thursday that the controversial arrangement which authorises mainland Chinese officers to apply national laws at the mainland port area of the station is legally sound. Judge Anderson Chow says the arrangement is consistent with the Basic Law, and the question should not be approached in a literal or mechanistic manner.  What implications does the court judgement bring? Is the “One country, two systems” principle really at stake? What do we learn about the NPCSC 'decision'?

    Sino-US Relations / The Public Transport Fare Subsidy Scheme

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Mike Rowse

    On Monday's Backchat, we are discussing US-China relations. After Presidents Trump and Xi had a ‘good conversation’ on the phone on Thursday, they plan to meet at the G20 Summit in late November, and to resolve their differences on bilateral trade. The Asian market was an optimistic sea of green on Friday; though others point to long term conflict and even a second cold war. Are the US midterm elections playing a part in this negotiation? Are you feeling positive about upcoming talks between both leaders? What about other issues – military tension, Taiwan, human rights, industrial espionage? Is America right to ask China to behave like a 'normal nation'?

    After 9:20, the Public Transport Fare Subsidy Scheme.
