    Iranian President Raisi's death / 50 years of China-Malaysia relations / Calligraphy and cognitive health

    On this week’s edition of Global Focus, we're discussing the life, death and legacy of Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi who died in a helicopter crash earlier this week.

    The death of the President with his Foreign Minister is likely to prompt a power struggle in the cleric dominated nation. We explore his legacy and the national and regional implications of the succession battle. An election is mandated to take place in 50 days from the confirmation of his death.
    After 9:30, we're looking into Malaysia's Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's visit to Hong Kong and the mainland, as China and Malaysia celebrate 50 years of relations.
    And after 9:45, we're learning about how cognitive activities can prevent dementia, following the release of a study that found Chinese calligraphy beneficial to our brain’s health.

    Calls to ban smoking by 2030 / Discussion with Micah Sandt, actor of "Gweilo"

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Paul Zimmerman

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're talking about proposals for a total ban on tobacco by 2030.

    Making the suggestions in response to a public consultation ending this month, HKU researchers called on authorities to raise tobacco taxes to 75 percent of retail prices by next year before an outright ban in seven years’ time.
    Citing support from 70% of the 12,000 respondents surveyed between 2019 to 2021, the researchers described Hong Kong as being in the "best position" for such measures while highlighting a need to further incentivise smokers to quit.
    But despite attitudes towards smoking being rather unfavourable, smokers' groups have raised concern over what they say could potentially deprive them of their individual choice to smoke.
    What do you make of these proposals? Long overdue? Or too harsh?
    After 9:45, we discuss with the actor of Gweilo, a bilingual solo adaptation of novelist Martin Booth's autobiography, depicting the life of an expat boy in 1950s Hong Kong.

    9:05am-9:45am: Proposals to ban smoking by 2030
