    Malaysia's bid to join Brics / Summer jobs

    On Friday's Backchat Global Focus, we're talking about Malaysia's plan to join the informal economic and trade group known as BRICS, after its founder members, which include China.

    The Southeast Asian nation may soon become the group's tenth member in what some analysts say could further challenge the US dollar's dominance in international trade.
    Earlier this week, Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim said his country would submit a formal application as soon as it receives feedback from South Africa, which currently chairs the organisation.
    NATO member Turkey is also hoping to join.
    Is Malaysia recalibrating its position on the global stage? And how has this move been received by its ASEAN neighbours?
    After 9:45, we learn more from a labour lawyer on how to avoid summer job scams after several students accused their employers of not paying them as advertised.

    Hong Kong's fertility trends / Controversy over viewing platform in Sai Kung

    主持人:Jenny Lam and Mike Rowse

    On Monday’s Backchat, we’re looking into Hong Kong’s fertility trends. Deputy Chief Secretary Warner Cheuk revealed that authorities approved more than 16,000 applications for the HK$20,000 "baby bonus" handouts, distributing over HK$35 million since October last year.

    The measure was rolled out in response to Hong Kong’s record-low fertility rate which dropped to 0.7 in 2022, at a time when the city’s elderly population keeps increasing.
    Experts have called on the government to roll out more targeted measures to support women who want to have children, citing a lack in access to IVF treatment for those with fertility issues.
    Are couples still willing to have children? Have societal norms changed? And are prospective parents given enough support?
    After 9:45, we’ll be talking about the construction of a viewing platform on a hiking trail in Sai Kung, sparking controversy among residents and green groups.
