    Hong Kong airport development plans / Discussion with a local doctor back from Gaza

    On today's Backchat, we're talking about developments at the airport.

    In its annual report, the Airport Authority revealed that passenger traffic had reached 80 percent of pre-pandemic levels, with full recovery expected by the end of this year.
    The numbers come as the three-runway system is poised to be commissioned around the same time, while the main terminal will be integrated with SKYCITY and Tung Chung through an autonomous transport system poised to start in 2028.
    But despite the encouraging figures, it isn't all plain sailing. Speaking to local media, the authority's acting CEO Vivian Cheung warned that Russian airspace restrictions remained a hindrance, as Western carriers are banned from flying over Russia owing to sanctions over the invasion of Ukraine, leading to greater fuel costs.
    How well is the airport's recovery proceeding? Is Hong Kong keeping up with the competition? How much of an impact do geopolitical conflicts have? We'll talk to the experts.
    After 9:45, we speak to a doctor who just came back from Gaza.

    Government spending / Making Hong Kong a Halal-friendly destination

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Philip Wong

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're talking about how to make the best use of public funds at a time when all government departments are being asked to tighten their belts.

    Legislators have been meeting all week in a Special Finance Committee session to quiz officials on their spending plans for the coming year amid projections of another budget deficit of $48 billion.
    Some have raised questions about the cost of everything from the millions of dollars still being spent every month on preserving vacant COVID quarantine facilities to former Chief Executive’s Carrie Lam’s office.
    Land matters are also high on the agenda, with the government preparing to submit its funding application for the first stage of the San Tin Technopole project that is one of the centrepiece’s of the Northern Metropolis project.
    So how can the government best implement its plan to cut spending by 1% this year? And are there ways public funds can be better targeted?
    After 9:45, we'll talk about Hong Kong's appeal to Muslim tourists looking for Halal-friendly restaurants.
