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.

On Monday's Backchat, wildlife trafficking. Hong Kong Customs recently seized more than $60million worth of elephant tusks and pangolin scales that arrived in a shipment from Africa, and over the years there have been seizures of illegal ivory and rhino horn by the authorities, that are believed to be for use in Chinese medicine or sculptures. After a record seizure in 2017 there were no prosecutions - authorities say there was insufficient evidence to support a reasonable prospect of convictio. Is Hong Kong becoming a wildlife trafficking hub, despite laws here? Should Hong Kong take it more seriously? What other measures could be done to combat wildlife trafficking? After 9.20, trade talks between Liu He and Donald Trump.
