    Calls to subsidise IVF treatments / Power glitches

    On Monday's Backchat, we're talking about fertility rates and reproductive services.

    Some legislators are pressing the government to introduce new measures to support mothers struggling to have children, as birth rates over the past two years stood at record lows.
    Citing the high costs of IVF treatments, lawmaker Nixie Lam hopes that authorities can allocate more funds to help middle-class parents wishing to start a family, while increasing the maximum egg storage period from the current 10 years to longer where needed.
    Ms Lam's suggestions come in response to Secretary for Health Lo Chung-mau's argument that the government's priority should be supporting citizens to procreate naturally and at a younger age, something critics say might not be financially viable.
    So what should the government's long-term fertility strategy look like? We'll be getting the views of our guests.
    After 9:45, we get an electrical engineer’s reaction to the recent spate of power outages in Kowloon.

    Aviation performance forecasts and China's homegrown C919 aircraft's HK visit / Mainland China's relaxation of visa policies

    主持人:Jim Gould and Mike Rowse

    On Monday’s Backchat, we're talking about the aviation sector's performance.

    Speaking at a media briefing in Geneva, the head of the international body IATA, Willie Walsh, described Hong Kong's recovery as "stronger than expected" -- a promising outlook he attributed to increased cooperation between Hong Kong-based airlines and others in the Greater Bay Area. It was also revealed that worldwide air traffic had reached 98.2 percent of pre-Covid levels in October, although international flights are taking longer to recover.
    Also in aviation news, China's homegrown C919 and ARJ 21 jets are to be showcased at Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday -- the first time that the two passenger aircraft have been flown outside of the mainland's airspace. There's also a low fly-past over Victoria Harbour scheduled for 10:30am next Saturday.
    Meanwhile, Hong Kong's flagship carrier Cathay Pacific has just welcomed its first batch of partially locally trained pilot graduates, in a move analysts say is part of the airline's goal to localise its workforce.
    So what does this all mean for the future of aviation in Hong Kong? Is 2024 poised to be an auspicious year for the sector?
    After 9:45, we'll talk about the mainland’s removal of tourist visa requirements for six nationalities, and 25 percent visa fee cuts kicking off today.
