    Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to China / New research on late treatment of strokes

    For the first edition of Global Focus we're talking about Russian President Vladimir Putin's state visit to China.

    President Xi Jinping called on the relations between China and Russia to be cherished and cared for by both sides, as the two neighbours seek to bolster economic ties.
    Under a new agreement, the two countries are expected to deepen strategic partnership and reinforce their 75 years of diplomatic relations, a friendship Putin described as a "stabilising" force.
    This year's visit also comes amidst high tensions over the war in Ukraine, with China poised to reinforce its involvement in brokering peace between Ukraine and Russia.
    Which sectors of the economy are most likely to benefit from this deepening cooperation? And can China bring the Russia-Ukraine conflict to an end? We'll find out.

    In the last part of the programme, we learn more from a research looking into the effectiveness of late treatment of stroke.

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

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Paul Zimmerman

    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.
