    Are we doing enough with woman’s health/ Ethnic Minority Elderly Population

    On Thursday’s Backchat, we tell about women’s health in Hong Kong. Although statutory maternity leave has been extended to 14 weeks, it still lags far behind many cities in China and around the world. Questions are also being asked about whether the government is doing enough to support the various health issues that women face, especially after the recent controversy over comments by Hong Kong’s health chief who seemed to suggest there was little point trying to give birth past the age of 40.

    So what kind of heath challenges do working women—who now constitute slightly over half of the local workforce—face? And what more can be done to support them?

    Later in the programme, we talk to a social worker about the expected rapid rise in the number of elderly from Hong Kong’s ethnic minority groups.

    New penalty system for power outages / Suspected poisoning of a guide dog

    主持人:Janice Wong and Paul Zimmerman

    On Friday‘s Backchat we are talking about the new penalty system for power outages.

    The government reached an agreement with Hong Kong’s two power firms to fine them for major supply disruptions. The size of the fine depends on how many people are affected, and for how long.

    For example, a power disruption with a combined 15 million minutes will cost CLP around HK$20 million. Hongkong Electric will have to pay the same amount for an outage that lasts 10 million minutes.

    But some lawmakers are questioning how effective this penalty system is – pointing out that fines could be offset by an existing system that rewards the power companies for restoring power.

    After 9:45am, we look at the suspected poisoning of a guide dog at a Tseung Kwan O mall.
