    New penalty system for power outages / Suspected poisoning of a guide dog

    On Friday‘s Backchat we are talking about the new penalty system for power outages.

    The government reached an agreement with Hong Kong’s two power firms to fine them for major supply disruptions. The size of the fine depends on how many people are affected, and for how long.

    For example, a power disruption with a combined 15 million minutes will cost CLP around HK$20 million. Hongkong Electric will have to pay the same amount for an outage that lasts 10 million minutes.

    But some lawmakers are questioning how effective this penalty system is – pointing out that fines could be offset by an existing system that rewards the power companies for restoring power.

    After 9:45am, we look at the suspected poisoning of a guide dog at a Tseung Kwan O mall.

    9:05-9:30am Gary Zhang, lawmaker

    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.
