    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.

    Hounax crypto platform fraud / Smoking ban U-turn in New Zealand

    主持人:Janice Wong and Mike Rowse

    On Wednesday’s Backchat we’re talking about the latest cryptocurrency scandal.

    Virtual asset exchange platform, Hounax, has been accused of defrauding more than 140 people out of around HK$150million. 

    According to the police, the scammers had lured victims in with promises of high returns on investments on its cryptocurrency exchange, but investors were unable to recoup their capital.

    Earlier this month, the Securities and Futures Commission flagged Hounax as a suspicious virtual asset trading platform, and included it in an alert list.  But some victims say the warning didn’t come soon enough.

    The latest case comes just two months after alleged scams involving unlicensed crypto platform, JPEX were uncovered.

    After 9:45am, we get reaction to New Zealand’s decision to scrap its planned smoking ban to fund tax cuts.
