    Today we’re talking about a coming government bureau overhaul; and the huge underwater volcano eruption near Tonga.

    Chief Executive Carrie Lam set the tables for what would be the biggest government revamp since 2007 — laying out a plan for her successor to restructure existing bureaus and create two new ones.

    The proposals would see a new Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau being created. Housing and transport would be split up, and the health bureau would get to focus on its core business as its food portfolio is transferred to a new Environment and Ecology Bureau.

    Would such changes improve governance? Will it happen at all? Can it help to solve deep-seated problems such as the housing shortage?

    After 9.15am, we'll speak to an expert about the massive volcanic eruption near Tonga that was felt across the world and triggered a tsunami that caused two people to drown in a beach in Peru.

    Boycotts, sanctions; Stuck in the Suez

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Mike Rowse

    On Monday's Backchat, boycotts, sanctions; and stuck in the Suez.

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has criticised several international brands including Nike, H&M and Adidas over their decision to boycott Xinjiang cotton. These brands said they would stop buying cotton from Xinjiang because they alleged the cotton were produced by forced labour in the region.
    Some mainland consumers have expressed anger and said they would boycott brands which boycott Xinjiang cottons. The sentiments escalated and celebrities who were spokesperson of these brands also issued statements to cut ties with their sponsors.
    And China has sanctioned organisations and individuals in the UK over what it called "lies and disinformation" about Xinjiang, days after Britain imposed sanctions for alleged human rights abuses in the northwestern Chinese region.
    What do you make of these boycotts and sanctions? Are they effective? Will the boycotts last? Is politics becoming too pervasive?

    From 9:15am-9:30am, we'll be talking about the ship stuck across the Suez Canal.
