    "Made in Hong Kong"? / New Japanese Prime Minister

    On Friday's Backchat, will there still be a "Made in Hong Kong"?
    Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Edward Yau, said he met the US consul general on Wednesday morning and asked him to pass a letter to Robert Lighthizer, saying Washington is infringing WTO rules and rights of Hong Kong as a separate customs entity by enforcing ";Made in China" tags for goods produced here. He said they would wait for a US response before deciding what further action to take.
    In August, Washington issued a notification that all goods made in Hong Kong and exported to the United States will need to be labelled as made in China.
    What's the future for the "Made in Hong Kong" label? What actually is still made here, and does it matter?
    From 9:00am-9:15am, we'll be discussing the new Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.

    Covid-19 and domestic helpers

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Mike Rowse

    On Monday's Backchat: Covid-19 and domestic helpers. The health authorities have announced widespread testing for domestic helpers who've been staying in boarding facilities arranged by employment agencies, amid fears that many may have been exposed to the coronavirus. We'll be talking to concern groups and a medical expert to get their perspectives. And should employers be making special arrangements for their helpers on Sundays and public holidays?   At the same time, the Chief Executive has announced a new voluntary testing programme among the wider population, warning that there could be about 1,500 silent carriers of the virus currently at large in the community. 

    Get involved and let us know what you think.  You can leave a message on our Facebook Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or give us a call on 23388266.
