    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.

    On Monday's Backchat: working remotely.

    Nine out of 10 employees in Hong Kong have said they would prefer working entirely or mostly from home. That was one of the findings of large-scale international survey by the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.

    However, only 45 percent of local staff have been offered the chance of splitting their working time between the office and home.

    PwC Surveyed 1,043 employees across the city in March, and also found that although Hong Kongers are keen to acquire advanced technology skills, some companies are falling behind in providing digital training.

    After 9.15am, we’ll look at the government’s effort to create a cleaner city, with a three-month operation tackling problems like rodent infestation, illegal waste dumping and dripping air conditioners.
