    China's third plenum meeting / HKDSE results

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're talking about China's third plenum.

    Chaired by President Xi Jinping, this important Communist Party meeting is reported to have been considering draft decisions on modernisation and economic reform. The meeting comes as China’s second quarter GDP growth fell to 4.7%, below the expected 5.1%.
    This has been partly blamed on weak consumer demand and US and European export curbs. Businesses are hoping to see more stimulus injected into the economy, but finance authorities have erred on the side of caution and warned earlier this year that such measures could pose long-term risks.
    So what should we expect from this meeting?
    After 9:45, we speak to three top DSE students.


    9:05am-9:45am: China's third plenum meeting

    9:05am-9:30am: Josef Gregory Mahoney, Professor in Politics and International Relations, East China Normal University (Shanghai)

    9:05am-9:45am: Ryan Manuel, Founder of Bilby AI, which gathers data on government policies

    9:30am-9:45am: Alan Lung, policy analyst and Co-Convenor, The Path of Democracy


    9:45am-10:00am: HKDSE results

    Hounax crypto platform fraud / Smoking ban U-turn in New Zealand

    主持人:Janice Wong and Mike Rowse

    On Wednesday’s Backchat we’re talking about the latest cryptocurrency scandal.

    Virtual asset exchange platform, Hounax, has been accused of defrauding more than 140 people out of around HK$150million. 

    According to the police, the scammers had lured victims in with promises of high returns on investments on its cryptocurrency exchange, but investors were unable to recoup their capital.

    Earlier this month, the Securities and Futures Commission flagged Hounax as a suspicious virtual asset trading platform, and included it in an alert list.  But some victims say the warning didn’t come soon enough.

    The latest case comes just two months after alleged scams involving unlicensed crypto platform, JPEX were uncovered.

    After 9:45am, we get reaction to New Zealand’s decision to scrap its planned smoking ban to fund tax cuts.

    9:05-9:45am Joshua Chu  Risk Advisor at CITD

    9:05am-9:30am Doreen Kong, lawmaker, also a solicitor
