GO! HONG KONG
On Monday's Backchat, we talk about Hong Kong's attractiveness to foreign expatriates and mainlanders.
According to the Immigration Department's latest figures, mainlanders account for 95% of applicants under the Top Talent Pass Scheme launched last December, a number some specialists attribute to the nation's increasing rate of university graduates.
And while the policy has borne fruit in attracting talented mainland counterparts, it seems to have fallen short of luring foreigners, with only 1,375 successful overseas applicants in contrast to 24,586 from the mainland. From high-rents to regional competition, not mentioning opportunities in neighbouring Greater Bay Area cities -- Hong Kong is in a race to attract foreigners, with business chambers highlighting the need to get more talents from overseas. Are foreign talents crucial to retaining Hong Kong's international stature?
Do we need more targeted immigration policies? And what can the private sector do to contribute? After 9:40, we will talk about an initiative by HKU offering free dental care to Hong Kong's underprivileged.
At 9:55, Jamie Clarke will give you the latest updates on the Asian Games.
