    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 Wednesday's Backchat, we're looking at whether a transitional housing project in Yuen Long… that appears to be falling flat.
    Nearly half of the units at a housing project run by Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council, are still vacant after tenants started moving in 6 months ago.
    The welfare group expressed hope the government would do more to promote the flats.
    But why are people not taking advantage of the new project given Hong Kong’s acute housing shortage?Is it about the lack of promotion, the location, or something else?
    And after 9:15am, does size matter? Yes it does, when it comes to diamond engagement rings ac-cording to a new survey.
    And at 9.25am, we'll be joined by RTHK sports correspondent Atom Cheung with the latest on the World Cup.
