The Pulse Series 15 Special Episode 1

2018-09-15
Hello and welcome to a new series of The Pulse. And, appropriately we are devoting this first programme to one of the biggest issues of the day ¡V how to find enough land to meet Hong Kong¡¦s housing needs.

In April, the Task Force on Land Supply launched a five-month public consultation. It offered the public 18 options for ways of freeing up land over the next ten years. The consultation is ending soon. And fortunately we have with us today some of the most knowledgeable people on this subject. On the platform we have Stanley Wong, Chairman of the Taskforce on Land Supply, Marco Wu, Former Chairman of the Hong Kong Housing Society, James Tien, Honorary Chairman of the Liberal Party, Albert Lai, who is the convenor of the Professional Commons policy committee and Ryan Ip, a Senior Researcher at the Our Hong Kong Foundation.

The Pulse

RTHK's English-language current affairs programme that takes "The Pulse" of Hong Kong ... and the world around it.

"The Pulse" is presented by locally and internationally known journalist and writer Steve Vines.

Its focus? The latest events and trends that affect Hong Kong - from the corridors of power and business boardrooms, to the streets and dai pai dongs.

"The Pulse" is politics. What's happening in the Legislative Council and on the streets right now.

"The Pulse" is the media, informing us how well or badly our press and broadcast organisations diagnose and reflect the society around us.

"The Pulse" is insightful, in-depth reports and interviews on current issues - examining those issues in depth, looking behind and beyond the news.

Its focus is on the timely. The Now.

Keep your eye ... and your finger ... on "The Pulse".

If you want to discuss anything you've seen in "The Pulse", or anything in the public eye right now, or just to talk about the show, why not join in the debate on our Facebook page, RTHK's The Pulse. 

The programme is aired every Saturday on RTHK 31 & 31A at 18:00, and a repeat on Sundays at 06:30.

Archive available later after broadcast. ** Please note that the programme air-time on TV is different with webcast time.
