    Iran-Israel conflict / Hockey 5's

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about escalating tensions between Iran and Israel.

    Last week, Iran fired over 300 drones and missiles in retaliation to its foe's strike on a diplomatic compound in Damascus earlier this month, killing 16, including two civilians.
    This is the first time ever that Iran has launched an attack on Israel directly from its own territory.
    And, while Israel's air defence system thwarted 99% percent of the Iranian missiles, with only one serious casualty recorded, some analysts worry that a repeat of last week's tit-for-tat could be far more intensive.
    Was the Iranian attack on Israel, and the threats of retaliation from Israel, a game changer? Could we be seeing an escalation in conventional warfare in the region? And how will domestic politics within the US and Israel shape the geo-political landscape?
    After 9:45, we learn more from the organisers of this year's Mega Ice Hockey 5's.

    Rebound of conventions and exhibition events / Scrutiny of public housing estate tenants' assets

    主持人:Andrew Work and Jim Gould

    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.

    9:05am-9:45am: Conventions and exhibitions
