    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.

    Hong Kong's appeal to visitors / SPCA's pet matching app

    主持人:Andrew Work and Brian Wong

    On today's Backchat, we’re talking about how Hong Kong can step up its tourism game.

    The government’s banking on mega-events and initiatives such as its night vibes campaign to draw the tourists back, and figures from the lunar new year break shows that tourist numbers have rebounded back to pre-Covid levels.
    But anecdotally, shops and restaurants say business could be better and tourists aren’t spending as much as they used to. Add to the mix the heightened pressure from rival destinations such as Singapore and it’s clear the local tourism sector has its work cut out to get back on top.
    How’s Hong Kong doing in distinguishing itself from its rivals? What more can we do?
