    Hong Kong's appeal to visitors / SPCA's pet matching app

    On today's Backchat, we’re talking about how Hong Kong can step up its tourism game.

    The government’s banking on mega-events and initiatives such as its night vibes campaign to draw the tourists back, and figures from the lunar new year break shows that tourist numbers have rebounded back to pre-Covid levels.
    But anecdotally, shops and restaurants say business could be better and tourists aren’t spending as much as they used to. Add to the mix the heightened pressure from rival destinations such as Singapore and it’s clear the local tourism sector has its work cut out to get back on top.
    How’s Hong Kong doing in distinguishing itself from its rivals? What more can we do?

    Aviation performance forecasts and China's homegrown C919 aircraft's HK visit / Mainland China's relaxation of visa policies

    主持人:Jim Gould and Mike Rowse

    On Monday’s Backchat, we're talking about the aviation sector's performance.

    Speaking at a media briefing in Geneva, the head of the international body IATA, Willie Walsh, described Hong Kong's recovery as "stronger than expected" -- a promising outlook he attributed to increased cooperation between Hong Kong-based airlines and others in the Greater Bay Area. It was also revealed that worldwide air traffic had reached 98.2 percent of pre-Covid levels in October, although international flights are taking longer to recover.
    Also in aviation news, China's homegrown C919 and ARJ 21 jets are to be showcased at Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday -- the first time that the two passenger aircraft have been flown outside of the mainland's airspace. There's also a low fly-past over Victoria Harbour scheduled for 10:30am next Saturday.
    Meanwhile, Hong Kong's flagship carrier Cathay Pacific has just welcomed its first batch of partially locally trained pilot graduates, in a move analysts say is part of the airline's goal to localise its workforce.
    So what does this all mean for the future of aviation in Hong Kong? Is 2024 poised to be an auspicious year for the sector?
    After 9:45, we'll talk about the mainland’s removal of tourist visa requirements for six nationalities, and 25 percent visa fee cuts kicking off today.
