Friday will be the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong SAR, and it will mark the halfway point of the promised 50 years without change under the One Country, Two Systems principle.
Security has been beefed up as President Xi Jinping is expected to begin a two-day visit to Hong Kong today (Thursday) for celebrations marking the SAR’s return to the mainland.
So, at this halfway point, how has One Country Two System been working so far? How will it develop going forward? And will it last well beyond the initial 50-year timeframe?
After 9.15am, we’ll be speaking to the Chief Executive Officer of the CUHK Medical Centre to look at what lessons Hong Kong can learn from the Covid-19 pandemic.

On Tuesday's Backchat: Combatting child abuse; and illegal parking.
The welfare secretary, Law Chi-kwong, has spoken in support of a proposal from the Law Reform Commission to create a new criminal offence targeting people who fail to protect children at risk from abuse.
A sub-committee launched a public consultation exercise in 2019 and has now put forward its recommendations, which also cover protection for the elderly and people with disabilities. Anyone failing to take action to protect the vulnerable, such as making a report to the police, could face a lengthy prison term if the victim suffers serious harm or dies.
It said the law should cover anyone who has a duty of care, including members of the same household, relatives, domestic helpers, social workers and teachers.
After 9:15am, as we prepare to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, we'll take a look at illegal parking as the police warn drivers who park where they are not supposed to that their vehicles could get multiple tickets.
