    Rebound of conventions and exhibition events / Scrutiny of public housing estate tenants' assets

    On Wednesday's Backchat, we're talking about the rebound in the convention and exhibition business.

    The Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Algernon Yau, has said he expects the sector's performance this year to match or even exceed that of pre-pandemic levels, with 150 conventions and 160 exhibitions scheduled for 2024.
    From jewellery fairs to food expos, exhibitions will cover a wide area, and the hospitality sector is poised to benefit as well.
    The turnaround follows three years Covid-related restrictions and comes after the government launched a $1.4 billion incentive scheme to subsidize exhibitors seeking to rent space.
    After 9:45, we'll talk about the authorities' plans for closer examination of public housing tenants' assets, including their cars, to combat abuse of the system.

    Advance healthcare directives / “Robot everywhere” exhibition

    主持人:Jim Gould and Mike Rowse

    On Monday's Backchat we’re talking about proposals to establish a legal framework for people to make advance instructions on medical treatment in end-of-life situations.

    The Hospital Authority allows patients to submit advanced medical directives, or AMDs, in written form, and an increasing number have been doing so in recent years. But as there is no current legislation on the practice, there's concern that both individuals and medical personnel could face legal and practical challenges.

    A bill to give greater legal force to such directives was gazetted on Friday and is due for its first reading in the Legislative Council on December 6. And in future, patients may also be able to make advance instructions in digital form.

    After 9:45, we find out more about a robot exhibition at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park, with enterprises in the business of developing the smart city concept, and sustainable innovation technologies, showcasing the latest robo-tech in the market.

    9:05-9:30am Dr. Aaron Lee, Co-chair of end of life care committee of Hong Kong Medical Association
