    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.

    Extreme weather in Hong Kong / Fake travel agency page scam

    主持人:Jim Gould and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat we’re talking about a new survey predicting more frequent episodes of extreme weather in Hong Kong over the next two to three decades.

    The territory recorded its hottest summer this year since records began in 1884, and was also hit by Super Typhoon Saola and record-breaking rainfall in September.  

    According to the study, conducted jointly by three universities CUHK, HKU and HKUST, there'll be a significant increase in the amount of rainfall by the middle of this century, which will lead to more landslides and flooding.

    It also says more hot weather, particularly hot nights, will become a feature. As well as talking to specialists about the climate science, we'll also be looking at what we can do as individuals to protect

    our health and safety, and what effect such conditions may have at the less well-off end of society.  

    After 9:45, we talk about fake social media accounts posing as travel agencies offering special deals online.  

    9:05-9:45am Professor Jimmy Fung, Chair Professor, Department of Mathematics, and Division of Environment and Sustainability, HKUST

    9:05am-9:30am Jeff Rotmeyer, Founder of Impact HK

    9:30am-9:45am Prof. Jung-Eun Chu Assistant Professor of the school of Energy and Environment at City University of Hong Kong

    9:45am-10:00am Ms Fanny Yeung, Executive Director of the Travel Industry Council

    9:45am-10:00am Francis Fong, Honorary President of Hong Kong Information Technology Federation
