    Student numbers are already down more than 15,000 compared with a year earlier — and many more are expected to leave over the summer.

    So what can schools do to stem the exodus?

    Resuming local tourism

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Anna Fenton

    On today’s Backchat: As Hong Kong takes its first tentative step towards resuming tourism, we’ll be asking if the government decision to allow local tour groups of up to 30 people from today is enough to save Hong Kong’s travel industry from collapse?

    The local tour groups will be subject to all kinds of restrictions, with tour guides required to take mandatory COVID-19 tests and all participants required to wear identifying labels at all times.

    So would you consider signing up for a local tour under these rules? Would it feel strange to travel around Hong Kong with a guide? And what kind of local tours are most likely to be successful?
