    Pay rises for civil servants and a shorter work week; Sinovac's Omicron-targeted vaccine trial

    8:30am-9:15am: civil servants’ pay rise and shorter work week

    8:30am-9:00am: Francis Mok, Executive Council Member, Hong Kong Institute of Human Resource Management

    8:30am-9:15am: Vera Yuen, Lecturer, Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Hong Kong

    9:00am-9:15am: Dr Quratulain Zaidi, Hong Kong-based Clinical Psychologist from MindnLife Psychology Practice

    9:15am-9:30am: Sinovac Omicron vaccine trial

    9:15am-9:30am: Ivan Hung, co-convenor of the Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation

    On Wednesday's Backchat, we will look at pay rises for civil servants, and the merits — or lack thereof — of a shorter work week.
    The new executive council is proposing a 2.5-percent pay rise for civil servants — far lower than the recommendations from the Pay Trend Survey Committee based on a survey of private sector pay. Civil service chief Ingrid Yeung explained the decision for a smaller pay hike was made after taking into account a variety of factors including the state of the economy, and the government’s fiscal position.
    What do you think? Is 2.5 percent the right figure? How will this affect the private sector, if at all? And what do you make of New World Group’s decision to give some of its staff half a day off on Friday for two months this summer? It’s designed to be a family-friendly measure to improve the well-being of staff.
    So is a 4.5-day work week the future? Or is it just not practical?
    After 9:15am, we'll look at a new clinical trial by Sinovac of a new vaccine specifically targeting Omi-cron.

    Covid-19 updates; consumption vouchers

    8:30am-9:15am: Covid-19 updates

    On Tuesday’s Backchat: Covid-19 updates; and consumption vouchers.

    Civil servants, Hospital Authority staff, care home workers and school teachers will have to get at least one shot of Covid-19 vaccine, or they'll be required to have regular tests at their own expense. Airport staff and quarantine hotel workers will have to be inoculated if they want to keep their jobs.

    The government also says full-day classes at schools can resume as early as next month if at least 70 percent of students and teachers have been vaccinated against Covid-19. Social-distancing measures will be extended for another two weeks.

    Meanwhile, the category system of countries considered to be Covid risks will be simplified, and it should be easier for fully vaccinated Hong Kong residents to return from places such as the UK and India. And it is reported that the UK is planning to offer booster shots in September. Do we need a third shot?

    What do you think? Should we relax Covid-19 rules now that we've gone more than 50 days with no local cases?

    From 9:15am-9:30am, we’re discussing the current spending spree using the first installments of the consumption vouchers which were issued on Sunday.
