    Hong Kong's fertility trends / Controversy over viewing platform in Sai Kung

    On Monday’s Backchat, we’re looking into Hong Kong’s fertility trends. Deputy Chief Secretary Warner Cheuk revealed that authorities approved more than 16,000 applications for the HK$20,000 "baby bonus" handouts, distributing over HK$35 million since October last year.

    The measure was rolled out in response to Hong Kong’s record-low fertility rate which dropped to 0.7 in 2022, at a time when the city’s elderly population keeps increasing.
    Experts have called on the government to roll out more targeted measures to support women who want to have children, citing a lack in access to IVF treatment for those with fertility issues.
    Are couples still willing to have children? Have societal norms changed? And are prospective parents given enough support?
    After 9:45, we’ll be talking about the construction of a viewing platform on a hiking trail in Sai Kung, sparking controversy among residents and green groups.

    2023 District Council election results / Fossilised pliosaur discovery

    主持人:Jim Gould and Car Ha

    On Tuesday's Backchat, we're talking about the 2023 District Council election results.

    Hailed by Chief Executive John Lee as "high quality polls", this year's district council elections were the first to take place since the initiation of an overhaul in 2021 which reduced the number of directly elected seats from 452 to 88.
    The DAB party emerged as the main winner, having secured 109 of 264 seats available, including both directly and indirectly elected places. The Federation of Trade Unions came second, followed by the New People's Party and the Business and Professionals' Alliance.
    The remaining 101 seats were won by independent candidates and smaller parties.
    In Yau Tsim Mong district, three out of six candidates were from ethnic minority backgrounds, which was hailed as a demonstration of Hong Kong's multiculturalism. However, none was successful in the poll.
    After 9:45, we learn about the recent discovery on the south coast of England of a fossilised pliosaur -- a giant maritime predator that lived about 150 million years ago.
