    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.

    New penalty system for power outages / Suspected poisoning of a guide dog

    主持人:Janice Wong and Paul Zimmerman

    On Friday‘s Backchat we are talking about the new penalty system for power outages.

    The government reached an agreement with Hong Kong’s two power firms to fine them for major supply disruptions. The size of the fine depends on how many people are affected, and for how long.

    For example, a power disruption with a combined 15 million minutes will cost CLP around HK$20 million. Hongkong Electric will have to pay the same amount for an outage that lasts 10 million minutes.

    But some lawmakers are questioning how effective this penalty system is – pointing out that fines could be offset by an existing system that rewards the power companies for restoring power.

    After 9:45am, we look at the suspected poisoning of a guide dog at a Tseung Kwan O mall.

    9:05-9:30am Gary Zhang, lawmaker

    9:05am-9:45am Dr. William Yu Yuen-ping, Chief Executive of World Green Organisation
