On Tuesday's Backchat: A look ahead to Carrie Lam’s final Policy Address of her current term, and hopes for a new Covid-19 drug.
The Chief Executive has been appealing to the public to put forward ideas, and various political groups have been making their opinions known.
Housing and land supply are expected to be the priority for the administration in the coming year. What else do you think should be on the list? Economic recovery, poverty alleviation, culture and transport?
After 9:15am, we’re discussing the new Covid-19 drug, the first oral antiviral medication which the manufacturers say can cut hospitalisations and deaths by half.
