    2023 population figures / Calls to better regulate the use of bamboo scaffoldings

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're looking at the latest population figures which show a slight increase in both births as well as the total number of people living in Hong Kong.

    There were 33,200 births last year, according to figures from the Census and Statistics Department, up 2% on the previous year and the first increase since 2017. Hong Kong's population also rose by 0.4% to 7.5 million, something the government attributes to not only new births but also recent talent schemes and Hongkongers returning from overseas.
    However there were still more deaths than births last year and Hong Kong's elderly population is expected to soar to 2.74 million in 2046, up from the current 1.45 million. So what do these figures tell us? We'll find out.
    After 9:45, we get the construction sector's views on calls to better regulate or even ban the use of bamboo scaffolding at construction sites after an accident killed two workers in Kai Tak on Tuesday. We'd love to know what you think.

    Northern Metropolis development / Swimming literacy programs

    主持人:Jim Gould and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat we're talking about the government's Northern Metropolis development plans.

    In his policy address, the Chief Executive John Lee explained that the new town would be divided into four different zones, covering logistics, innovation and technology, boundary commerce, and environmental land and water-based recreation.
    At a news conference on Monday, Development Secretary Bernadette Linn highlighted that while studies were ongoing, the administration hoped to begin land resumption procedures by 2027, with 40 percent of flats to be constructed by 2032.
    Described as "the new engine of Hong Kong's development," the Northern Metropolis is expected to create 500,000 new jobs and provide 500,000 housing units and boost Hong Kong's integration with the Greater Bay Area.
    How are the plans likely to unfold? And are there adequate measures to protect biodiversity in the area?
    After 9:45, we talk about an upcoming round-the-island swimming race to raise funds for an ongoing initiative to teach local people and and domestic helpers to swim.
