    Poverty Situation among the Ethnic Minorities / Dog Shelters facing a funding shortfall

    On Thursday's Backchat we're talking about living standards of the territory's ethnic minorities. The Equal Opportunities Commission is calling on the government to take steps to improve the job prospects of people from minority communities after a recent report detailed high levels of poverty. Among South Asians, the poverty rate in 2016 stood at 23 percent. Most of those affected ​​ were working in low-paid jobs. A lack of proficiency in Chinese and English in some cases was cited as one factor. So what should be done to support people from ethnic minority groups in terms of education and employment? Leave a message, or email us with your thoughts at backchat@rthk.hk, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20, stray dog shelters face a funding shortfall.

    Solid Waste Charging Scheme / Clean Desk Policy

    On Tuesday's Backchat , what a waste. The Government is unveiling plans for how to charge for what you throw away. Its been a long debate, with many trials and pilot studies -  what do you make of the proposals?  After 9.20, following exchanges in the last CE debate we ask if it's good to have an empty desk?
