    Tung Chung MTR line extension / Visa applicants needing to declare prior convictions

    On Monday's Backchat, we're talking about the planned extension to the Tung Chung MTR line.
    A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Thursday to mark the start of construction work.  
    Scheduled for completion in 2029, the project will include two new stations -- Tung Chung East and Tung Chung West -- and is part of the broader development of the area which is underway and which will result in a big increase in population.
    The new stations will eventually allow more convenient access for many to the MTR. However, critics have voiced dissatisfaction with the lengthy timeline of the project's planning and construction, pointing out that many new residents will already have moved in several years before the stations are completed.  
    After 9:45, we look into a new requirement for visa applicants to declare any criminal convictions.

    San Tin IT hub / e-HKD digital currency pilot scheme

    主持人:Jim Gould and Mike Rowse

    On Monday's Backchat, we learn more about plans to establish a major technology hub as part of the Northern Metropolis development.

    Aspiring to become "Hong Kong's Silicon Valley", the 627 hectare San Tin Technopole, as it's called, could create at least 165,000 innovation and technology jobs on land the size of 17 Science Parks.

    The Development Bureau has said that besides public tendering, plots could be offered by means such as restricted tendering or direct land grants.

    Meanwhile, green groups have expressed concerns about the possible environmental impact of development in the area.

    How much of an impact would the new centre have in boosting R&D capabilities? Would relaxed tendering rules encourage more tech companies to apply?

    After 9.45 we'll look into the launch of the Hong Kong digital currency trial.

    Let us know what you think. You can leave a message here on our Facebook page, email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or give us a call on 23388266.
