    2023 population figures / Calls to better regulate the use of bamboo scaffoldings

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're looking at the latest population figures which show a slight increase in both births as well as the total number of people living in Hong Kong.

    There were 33,200 births last year, according to figures from the Census and Statistics Department, up 2% on the previous year and the first increase since 2017. Hong Kong's population also rose by 0.4% to 7.5 million, something the government attributes to not only new births but also recent talent schemes and Hongkongers returning from overseas.
    However there were still more deaths than births last year and Hong Kong's elderly population is expected to soar to 2.74 million in 2046, up from the current 1.45 million. So what do these figures tell us? We'll find out.
    After 9:45, we get the construction sector's views on calls to better regulate or even ban the use of bamboo scaffolding at construction sites after an accident killed two workers in Kai Tak on Tuesday. We'd love to know what you think.

    On Wednesday’s Backchat we’re looking at transgender rights in Hong Kong

    In a landmark ruling on Monday, the Court of Final Appeal decided that the authorities had breached the rights of two transgender men, by refusing to allow them to use their new gender on their identity cards, because they had not undergone full sex reassignment surgery.

    Ruling in the men‘s favour, Hong Kong highest court called this "an unacceptably harsh burden" on them.

    The issue was first brought to court in 2019 after the commissioner of registration refused to review the gender status on the pair's identity cards as they had only undergone hormone treatment and had their breasts removed.

    So what exactly will this ruling mean for the transgender population here? Will any laws have to be changed as a result?

    After 9:15am, we’ll look at the prevalence of young-onset dementia in Hong Kong
