    A survey released by Australian think-tank Lowy Institute found that nearly one in five Chinese
    Australians have experienced verbal or physical abuse because of their heritage.
    Most respondents (66 per cent) said the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to the racist
    incidents, while more than half blamed the state of Australia-China relations.
    And community groups supporting Chinese communities in the UK are being trained to support victims of Covid-related racial attacks, after a Chinese lecturer was assaulted last week.

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

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Andrew Work

    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.
