    2024-25 budget review: lifting of housing curbs / Electric vehicle support measures

    On Friday's Backchat, we talk about the lifting of property curbs -- also known as "spicy measures".

    Introduced over a decade ago to rein in speculation, the Special Stamp Duty (SSD), Buyer's Stamp Duty (BSD) and New Residential Stamp Duty (NRSD) are no longer needed to be paid when purchasing a home, in what the real estate sector hopes will attract more buyers. The measures were announced by the Financial Secretary Paul Chan on Wednesday.
    Speaking on a Cantonese phone-in programme following his budget speech, Mr. Chan said that this is the right time to get rid of the levies, citing little speculative activity and adequate home supplies.
    However, the minister highlighted that his administration would keep an eye on the market situation, and be ready to re-introduce the curbs if needed.
    After 9:45, we'll gather views on the extension of electric vehicle tax incentives.

    Extreme weather in Hong Kong / Fake travel agency page scam

    主持人:Jim Gould and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat we’re talking about a new survey predicting more frequent episodes of extreme weather in Hong Kong over the next two to three decades.

    The territory recorded its hottest summer this year since records began in 1884, and was also hit by Super Typhoon Saola and record-breaking rainfall in September.  

    According to the study, conducted jointly by three universities CUHK, HKU and HKUST, there'll be a significant increase in the amount of rainfall by the middle of this century, which will lead to more landslides and flooding.

    It also says more hot weather, particularly hot nights, will become a feature. As well as talking to specialists about the climate science, we'll also be looking at what we can do as individuals to protect

    our health and safety, and what effect such conditions may have at the less well-off end of society.  

    After 9:45, we talk about fake social media accounts posing as travel agencies offering special deals online.  

    9:05-9:45am Professor Jimmy Fung, Chair Professor, Department of Mathematics, and Division of Environment and Sustainability, HKUST

    9:05am-9:30am Jeff Rotmeyer, Founder of Impact HK
