    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 Friday's Backchat we'll talk about China’s extreme heatwave.

    Parts of the mainland have been experiencing searing temperatures for more than two months – with many rivers and reservoirs running dry because of a severe drought and scant rainfall.

    The Ministry of Agriculture warns that the unprecedented heatwave is posing challenges for autumn crops. Authorities are now turning to artificial rainfall and using more coal as hydropower output plunges as electricity demand surge.

    What do you think? How would this affect Food supplies?

    After 9:15 we will look at the preservation of neon light signs, after some iconic signs in Yau Ma Tei were removed by the government recently.
