    Policy Address and foreign judges on CFA

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Nixie Lam

    On Thursday’s Backchat, the Policy Address; and foreign judges in the CFA. 

    Chief Executive Carrie Lam declared on Wednesday that restoring Hong Kong's constitutional order and political system from chaos is one of her "urgent priorities", saying the city had experienced its most severe political challenges since 1997 in the past year. 

    In her forth policy address, Carrie Lam said the government has found all of the 330 hectares of land required to meet demand for public housing in the next 10 years, and she would not give up the plan to develop Lantau. 

    The government is also planning to give companies up to HK$18,000 per month for every fresh local graduate they recruit to work in the Greater Bay Area as a measure to help solve the employment problem for young people. 

    What do you think of this year’s Policy Address? Can it help bridge the political divide in the community? How will you benefit from it? 

    From 9:15-9:30, we’ll continue our discussion regarding the UK’s latest six-monthly report on HK and their suggestion to review arrangements for judges sitting on Hong Kong’s Court of Final Appeal.

    8:30am-9:15 am Policy Address
