    Iran-Israel conflict / Hockey 5's

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about escalating tensions between Iran and Israel.

    Last week, Iran fired over 300 drones and missiles in retaliation to its foe's strike on a diplomatic compound in Damascus earlier this month, killing 16, including two civilians.
    This is the first time ever that Iran has launched an attack on Israel directly from its own territory.
    And, while Israel's air defence system thwarted 99% percent of the Iranian missiles, with only one serious casualty recorded, some analysts worry that a repeat of last week's tit-for-tat could be far more intensive.
    Was the Iranian attack on Israel, and the threats of retaliation from Israel, a game changer? Could we be seeing an escalation in conventional warfare in the region? And how will domestic politics within the US and Israel shape the geo-political landscape?
    After 9:45, we learn more from the organisers of this year's Mega Ice Hockey 5's.

    Special edition: 2024-25 budget (part 1)

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Paul Zimmerman

    On Thursday's special edition of Backchat, we're examining the 2024-25 budget.

    Delivering his financial blueprint at the Legislative Council on Wednesday, the Financial Secretary Paul Chan announced a wide range of measures—from the much-expected removal of all remaining property curbs to the extension of tax concessions for electric vehicles, and $65 million to help develop Hong Kong into a green maritime fuel-bunkering centre.
    However, there was a mixture of good and bad news about Hong Kong’s economy. Unemployment is down, while both economic growth and visitor arrivals are up. But so too is the budget deficit, which will surpass HK$100 billion this year—almost twice last year's forecast.
    And although there are no plans for a sales tax, some other taxes are increasing, with the government planning to collect a 3% Hotel Accommodation Tax.

    We find out more.
