    Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to China / New research on late treatment of strokes

    For the first edition of Global Focus we're talking about Russian President Vladimir Putin's state visit to China.

    President Xi Jinping called on the relations between China and Russia to be cherished and cared for by both sides, as the two neighbours seek to bolster economic ties.
    Under a new agreement, the two countries are expected to deepen strategic partnership and reinforce their 75 years of diplomatic relations, a friendship Putin described as a "stabilising" force.
    This year's visit also comes amidst high tensions over the war in Ukraine, with China poised to reinforce its involvement in brokering peace between Ukraine and Russia.
    Which sectors of the economy are most likely to benefit from this deepening cooperation? And can China bring the Russia-Ukraine conflict to an end? We'll find out.

    In the last part of the programme, we learn more from a research looking into the effectiveness of late treatment of stroke.

    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
