    Hong Kong's increasing divorce rates / ESF's 4.8% school fee increase

    On Wednesday’s Backchat, we're be talking about the increasing divorce rate in Hong Kong.

    Divorce applications rose 25% last year and splitting couples had to wait longer to have their cases heard in Family Court, with the average waiting time reaching nearly three months. Lawyers say they’re starting to see some couples divorce much earlier into their marriages, often due to extramarital affairs or conflicts over parenting.
    But rising divorce rates aren’t unique to Hong Kong and some jurisdictions, such as France, are starting to make the process less painful by allowing consenting couples to avoid a court hearing.
    So is time for Hong Kong to do the same? Why are more people divorcing? And how does it affect their children?
    After 9:45, we discuss ESF's plan for a 4.8% increase in school fees.

    Rebound of conventions and exhibition events / Scrutiny of public housing estate tenants' assets

    主持人:Andrew Work and Jim Gould

    On Wednesday's Backchat, we're talking about the rebound in the convention and exhibition business.

    The Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Algernon Yau, has said he expects the sector's performance this year to match or even exceed that of pre-pandemic levels, with 150 conventions and 160 exhibitions scheduled for 2024.
    From jewellery fairs to food expos, exhibitions will cover a wide area, and the hospitality sector is poised to benefit as well.
    The turnaround follows three years Covid-related restrictions and comes after the government launched a $1.4 billion incentive scheme to subsidize exhibitors seeking to rent space.
    After 9:45, we'll talk about the authorities' plans for closer examination of public housing tenants' assets, including their cars, to combat abuse of the system.

    9:05am-9:45am: Conventions and exhibitions
