    Kwun Tong railway development / Sleeper trains

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're talking about plans to build a new MTR line in east Kowloon.

    Citing a lack of railway services in hilly areas of Kwun Tong, authorities have proposed a seven-kilometre-long elevated line which would connect Choi Hung East with Yau Tong East.
    The project would cost about HK$264 million and be completed by 2033, with some lawmakers hoping to see it extended to Kai Tak.
    The trains would not require overhead lines and would be equipped with rubber tyres to increase their climbing capability on steep inclines.
    How feasible is this plan? And what are the challenges? We'll find out.
    After 9:45, we talk about the new high-speed sleeper train services connecting Hong Kong to Beijing and Shanghai.

    Changes to the minimum wage / Closure of President Cinema in Causeway Bay

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Paul Zimmerman

    On Thursday’s Backchat we’re talking about a new system for setting Hong Kong’s minimum wage which will take economic growth and consumer prices into account and mean that it can never be cut back below its existing level in future.

    Secretary for Labour and Welfare Chris Sun called these changes a "historic and challenging mission". But some employers say its unreasonable that it will become impossible to ever reduce the minimum wage even if times get tough for businesses. And unionists are unhappy about reported plans to increase the minimum wage by only HK$1.8 an hour this year, one of the lowest increases ever.
    After 9:45, we look at Hongkongers' cinema going habits, following the closure of the almost six-decade-old President Cinema in Causeway Bay.
