    Future Investment Initiative Institutes Summit / Taylor Swift: Time Magazine's person of the year 2023

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about Hong Kong’s status as an international finance hub.

    Earlier this week the government hit out at Moody’s decision to change the credit outlook of Hong Kong to "negative" from "stable". It stressed that Hong Kong’s tight links with the mainland are a source of strength for the territory’s long-term development, not a rating constraint.
    And despite Moody’s downgrade, the Future Investment Initiative Institutes Summit is currently taking place here-- the second international financial event held in Hong Kong within two weeks.
    Organisers say Hong Kong was chosen to host the event precisely because it’s a global financial and investment hub that serves as a bridge to the mainland and the rest of Asia.
    So, how is Hong Kong doing as an international financial hub? What’s behind the Moody’s downgrade?
    After 9:45am, we look at Taylor Swift - Time magazine's person of the year.

    Melting Himalayan glaciers / Enforcement against HK$2 transport subsidy fraud

    主持人:Andrew Work and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat, we'll discuss climate change and more specifically -- melting glaciers. 

    This comes after a report by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development, or ICIMOD, found that the Himalayan glaciers, which provide critical water to nearly two billion people, are melting faster than ever before due to climate change.

    According to the report, the glaciers disappeared 65 percent faster from 2011 to 2020 compared with the previous decade, and based on current emissions trajectories, the Nepal-based intergovernmental think-tank says the glaciers could lose up to 80 percent of their current volume by the end of the century.

    It also predicts an increase in natural catastrophes as a result, including flash floods and avalanches that could displace millions unless we reduce our greenhouse gas emissions beyond target. 

    What do you make of this? Are these scenarios inevitable? Do we still have time to avoid such disasters from happening?

    After 9:45, we'll get a transport analyst's take on the stepping up of law enforcement action against the abuse of the HK$2 fare subsidy schem.
