On Friday's Backchat, family business and succession. Hong Kong's second richest Lee Shau-kee has announced his retirement and is planning to hand over his business to his sons. Li Ka-shing and Stanley Ho have also been handing over the reins. By one estimate 60% of the GDP of Hong Kong and China comes from family controlled firms - how should they handle the transition from one generation to another? How do they manage personal and professional relationships at the same time? In most cases the next generation are more modern and corporate - does this mean the end of Asian family conglomerates? Can the youngsters live up to the pioneers? After 9.20, MPF tax breaks.
Let us know your thoughts. You can leave a message on our Facebook page, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at email@example.com, or give us a call on 23388266.

On Friday's Backchat, bus safety. The government-appointed Independent Review Committee on franchised bus services has released a report with 45 suggestions on making bus travel safer. They include better working conditions for drivers and shorter hours; tougher actions against passengers who argue with drivers; more seat belts, speed linmiters and other devices. Will they work, and are you happy about safety? What about the 7% fare rise too?
