    On Friday's Backchat, we'll be looking ahead to the Budget 2023, which is due to be delivered by Financial Secretary Paul Chan on February 22.

    Economists and politicians are divided on whether authorities should give out another round of consumption vouchers, while the minister has said he's yet to decide whether this year’s Budget will feature more handouts.

    How to attract visitors to Hong Kong and provide more support to SMEs are also on the watch list, as parties urge Mr Chan to offer measures to boost the city’s economic recovery and help grassroots families as the Covid pandemic subsides.

    More consumption vouchers? How best to boost Hong Kong's economic recovery?

    After 9:15am, in celebration of the Year of Rabbit, we'll be looking at an art exhibition at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

    Rise in food prices / food security

    主持人:Jim Gould & Anna Fenton

    On Wednesday’s Rise in food prices. 

    Chief Executive Carrie Lam on Tuesday announced Hong Kong's toughest social distancing rules to date, including a ban on private gatherings of more than two families.
    Public gatherings will be capped at two people. Hair salons and religious venues will be closed temporarily, at least until a new “vaccine pass” scheme that will be launched later this month. 
    Starting from February 24, people will have to be vaccinated if they want to go into shopping malls, supermarkets, restaurants, gyms and churches. The “vaccine pass” will not be required on public transport yet, but authorities could order public transport to be covered if the Covid situation becomes more serious.
    Meanwhile, vegetable prices in Hong Kong have continued to skyrocket due to transport disruptions at the mainland Chinese border caused by Covid infections among truck drivers. The Consumer Council warned that we might have to suffer in the next few months with further inflation on different kinds of daily goods.
    At about 9.25am, we’ll be joined by RTHK sports reporter Atom Cheung for the latest news of the Bejing Winter Olympics.
    Let us know what you think. You can leave a message on our Facebook page, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at backchat@rthk.hk or give us a call on 2338 8266.
