China has seen a population growth in 2020, according to the official census released yesterday. However, the number of new births has fallen for the 4rth consecutive year and the share of Chinese senior citizens expanded. What do the statistics mean for China? Is it good to have a falling population? Is the age distribution an issue? Meanwhile in Hong Kong, a survey says most local women don't want to give birth, saying they don’t have enough money, space or time to raise a child. Is that how you feel? How will this affect Hong Kong?
From 9:15am-9:30am, we'll be discussing broadcasting rights to the Olympics. The Government has for the first time bought the broadcasting rights and it will be shown on 5 TV stations. What do you think about the purchase? How much does it cost for a TV license of a sports event?
