    Proposed university fee increases / Opening of the stock exchange on typhoon days

    On today's Backchat, we're talking about the government's plan to raise university tuition fees for Hong Kong students. The HK$42,000 yearly fees for local public universities have remained unchanged for 30 years and are lower than in most other developed places.

    So Secretary for Education Christine Choi said on a RTHK programme that it's time to consider raising fees, although she pledged any increase would be implemented in stages while offering more support to those in need.
    But grassroots groups still worry that any increase could affect underprivileged students. So how does the financing of Hong Kong's tertiary institutions compare to the rest of the world? We'll find out.
    After 9:45, we find out more about plans to keep the Hong Kong Stock Exchange open during typhoons and severe rainstorms.

    Civil service recruitment / Giant inflatable yellow ducks

    主持人:Jim Gould and Car Ha

    On Monday's Backchat, we're talking about civil service recruitment, and a new scheme which will allow undergraduates to make earlier applications for government jobs.  

    Until now, students wanting to join the public service have had to apply in their final year, or after completing their studies. But in future they'll be able to do so in their penultimate year at university, and will receive a conditional offer if successful in the recruitment examinations. 

    The change, which aligns with private sector practices, comes amid a staff shortage and a high vacancy rate, with many having left the service over the past three years.  

    Is the private sector now proving more attractive? What about job security? Will these relaxed rules help, and what else can be done to attract new talent into the government? 

    After 9:45, we get an art critic's take on the reappearance of a giant inflatable yellow duck, and friend, in the harbour.
