This May Day, a Backchat special wants to know if you share the Lantau Tomorrow Vision.
The Government has outlined the most ambitious plan in our history to build new islands connected by road and rail, a new central business district and housing for a million people. It’s estimated to cost more than 600 billion dollars in its first stage.
Critics say it’s overpriced and unnecessary. The Government says it will instil hope among Hong Kong people for economic progress and improved livelihoods.
We’ll be hearing from Government officials, and others, and we hope from you. Come along to the special Backchat programme live in our Kowloon Tong studios at 12 noon on Wednesday 1st May, and join the debate.

On Thursday's Backchat, Occupy Central sentencing. The District Court has sentenced four pro-democracy leaders for terms varying from eight to 16 months over the 2014 protests, while sparing another four custodial sentences. Legislator Tanya Chan's sentencing will be adjourned because of life-threatening condition in her brain. Pro-Beijing lawmakers said the sentencing was too lenien, while the judge said that none of the defendants expressed any regret. What do you think of the sentences? Will they inhibit freedom of expression, or simply mark its boundaries? Has justice been done? After 9.20, the new Kai Tak Sports Park.

40 heads of state or government are due to attend the second Belt and Road Forum which commenced in Beijing today. The US$1 trillion project has become a defining symbol of Xi Jinping’s presidency and the ambitious plan aims to connect 100 countries through a massive infrastructure network. However, the initiative has come under fire from an increasing number of countries including Pakistan and Malaysia because of the high cost. The US, which is not sending officials to the Forum, says the project is trapping developing countries into unsustainable amounts of debt and China is seizing their assets when they can no longer afford to service the debt. Observers are waiting to see if there any signs of China recalibrating its ambitions in response to the criticism and focusing on the commercial viability of the projects rather than political ambitions. PBOC governor Yi Gang said on Thursday at the Forum that “we need to consider a countries’ complete debt-servicing capabilities.”

We’re very excited to welcome its host too, who apart from being one quarter of the amazing Metro Vocal Group, has lived and breathed country music since he was small.

Music has always been in his blood, literally, and he hopes his selection will make you stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country.
