    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.

    Hong Kong's new garbage bins and recycling subsidies / Hong Kong's falling rankings in reading

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Paul Zimmerman

    On Thursday’s Backchat, we’re discussing recycling after an audit report found that recycling firms applying for the government subsidies may need to wait 18 months for approval.

    Critics say this long delay may make it difficult for embattled recyclers to stay afloat.
    The government also plans to phase out roadside recycling bins and give orange rubbish bins a facelift. The new style rubbish bins will have a smaller opening to try and stop people using them to throw away large items.
    So what we can do to help the local recycling industry? Will the new rubbish bins achieve their purpose? Or will people just dump their garbage directly on the streets instead.
    After 9:45, we talk about Hong Kong’s falling rankings in reading.

    9:05am-9:45am: Recycling

    9:05-9:45am: Kenny Lam, Coordinator, Love Recycling Plus
