On Tuesday's Backchat, making Hong Kong an elderly friendly society. Nearly a third of Hong Kong residents are expected to be aged 65 or older or in 20 years' time, so how should our city change for this new, older population?

What sort of other opportunities are offered by 'gerontechnology' for the old? What about public health care, transport and education? Is a change in attitude to retirement the key?
After 9.20, Google suspends its business with Huawei.
