    On Tuesday's Backchat, we're talking about a planned increase of the plastic bag levy.
    The Legislative Council is due to consider a proposal on Tuesday to raise the charge for plastic shopping bags in supermarkets and some other stores from $50 cents to $1 dollar. But campaigners say that's not enough.
    The environmental group, Greeners Action, has conducted a survey which found that more than 75 percent of respondents believed that people would only start using fewer plastic bags if the levy was raised to at least HK$2 per bag, while only 21 percent would reduce their use if the levy was set at HK$1.

    Why do HK citizens still use too many plastic bags? Are they too convenient, or too cheap? And what impact would a $2 charge have on the underprivileged? 
    After 9.15am, the Hong Kong Palace Museum has finally opened its doors! We'll talk to a prominent artist and architect.

    On Thursday’s Backchat, the Qianhai economic zone; and Hong Kong’s third runway.

    The Qianhai economic zone in Shenzhen will see its size increase by about eight times, as part of a plan to foster closer business and technology ties with Hong Kong, and to help the development of the Greater Bay Area.

    The project includes plans to attract universities from Hong Kong, Macau and overseas to set up branches there, and finance companies will be allowed to provide cross-border services. Business groups have welcomed the potential opportunities and benefits, but say the governments on the two sides need to work out a number of arrangements.

    After 9:15am, we’re discussing the planned opening of Hong Kong International
    Airport’s third runway, which is set for the second half of next year.
