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? HSBC recently introduced a new type of bank account targeted at clients with dementia in light of the growing of ageing 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.

This May Day, a Backchat special wants to know if you share the Lantau Tomorrow Vision.
The Government has outlined the most ambitious plan in our history to build new islands connected by road and rail, a new central business district and housing for a million people. It’s estimated to cost more than 600 billion dollars in its first stage.
Critics say it’s overpriced and unnecessary. The Government says it will instil hope among Hong Kong people for economic progress and improved livelihoods.
We’ll be hearing from Government officials, and others, and we hope from you. Come along to the special Backchat programme live in our Kowloon Tong studios at 12 noon on Wednesday 1st May, and join the debate.
