    Single use plastic ban / MTR 45th anniversary exhibition

    On Monday's Backchat, we're talking about the ban on single use plastic.

    Starting Monday — which is Earth Day — catering premises will no longer be able to provide disposable expanded polystyrene tableware, which includes single-use plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery, and plates. Plastic cups and food containers will initially be banned for dine-in customers, before a blanket prohibition takes place early next year.
    On top of that, hotel guests can bid farewell to free plastic water bottles, plastic toothbrushes, and small-sized shampoo bottles in their rooms. Lodging establishments will now have to use alternative materials such as paper bottles and wooden toiletries.
    The government hopes this will help reduce waste, and minimise microplastic pollution of landfills and oceans, in line with Hong Kong's ambitions of reaching carbon neutrality by 2050.
    After 9:45, we talk about a public exhibition celebrating the MTR Corporation’s 45th anniversary, with vintage trains on display in Hung Hom.

    8th Belt and Road Summit / France's decision to ban iPhone 12 sale over radiation levels

    主持人:Jim Gould and Mike Rowse

    On today's Backchat, we talk about the 8th Belt and Road Summit, which concluded on Thursday in Hong Kong.

    Drawing nearly 6,000 attendees from over 70 countries and regions, the two-day summit saw a line-up of influential guests from sectors including IT, banking and infrastructure.
    Hailed by the government as a demonstration of Hong Kong's return on the global stage, the forum is also seen as an affirmation of the SAR's strategic contribution to the Belt and Road Initiative launched by President Xi Jinping in 2013.
    A total of 21 MoUs were signed and 280 investment projects matched, with the Middle East playing a significant role at this year's event. In attendance was Egyptian Minister of International Cooperation Rania Al-Mashat who has invited Chief Executive John Lee to Egypt, signalling investment opportunities tied to Suez Canal.
    After 9:45, we discuss France's decision to ban the sale of iPhone 12 smartphones over what regulators say are high radiation levels.
