    On Thursday's Backchat, the Fanling Golf Course. The Executive Council has accepted the Task Force's recommendations including developing part of the Fanling Course. Its reported this would mean retaking 32 hectares. The course's private recreational lease comes up next year. What would this mean to the sport in Hong Kong? Could the Open continue?

    Review of Policy Address 2018

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Jim Gould

    We're reviewing the Policy Address on Thursday's Backchat. Chief Executive Carrie Lam has announced a range of plans, with a focus on housing and land supply. At the heart of it is the "Lantau Tomorrow Vision", involving a major reclamation of about 1,700 hectares for the East Lantau Metropolis, which could provide homes for up to 1.1 million people. But the the plan is opposed by environmentalists who warn that the project would be vulnerable to sea level rises and storm surges during typhoons. Among other measures, Ms Lam also pledged to extend maternity leave and to promote the role of women in the workforce, further steps to encourage innovation and technology research, and plans to support the maritime and insurance industries amid the uncertainty posed by international trade disputes. On national security, she said her administration would continue to work towards creating a favourable environment for introducing legislation under Article 23 of the Basic Law, but stressed that in the meantime it would not tolerate any acts which advocated Hong Kong independence. So what do you make of the Policy Address? We'd like to hear from you. Leave a message here, or email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or call  us on 23388266.
