On Monday’s Money Talk, Peter Lewis is joined by Alex Wong, Director of Asset Management at Ample Capital and John Schofield, Managing Director at Tempus Investment to discuss the day’s top business and finance stories. With a view from Mainland China is Shanghai-based Independent Economist, Andy Xie.
On Monday's Backchat, Voting for the Election Committee; and career opportunities in the mainland.
The Election Committee subsector elections are taking place on Sunday. It's reported that the police are planning to deploy at least 4,000 officers to ensure a smooth and peaceful process, with just under 4,900 eligible voters deciding on 364 seats.
The voting is taking place under a new electoral system following the Central Government's overhaul, designed to ensure that only those regarded as patriots can be in positions of authority. The 1,500-member Election Committee will be made up of five big sectors, with 40 subsectors that include representatives from businesses, professional bodies, labour and religious groups, as well as national legislators and groups that have ties to the central government.
It'll all be very different from previous occasions. This time around only three candidates who are not part of the pro-establishment camp are involved. We'll be casting our eyes over the changed political landscape.
After 9:15am, we’re looking at career opportunities in the mainland, with the All-China Youth Federation announcing 40,000 jobs and internships to young people from Hong Kong in the next five years.
