Other architects deprived of participating in museum project Listen
The chairman of the Association of Architectural Practices, Dennis Lau, says Rocco Yim is a good architect for designing the proposed Hong Kong Palace Museum at the West Kowloon Cultural District. But he says the fact that only Yim was officially appointed by the government without a tendering process has deprived other architects in the territory from getting involved in the project. Lau tells Annemarie Evans that the project has also been handled in secrecy with many aspects of it being unclear.
Beijing still hasn’t made up mind on chief executive candidates: academic Listen
A political commentator from City University, Cheung Chor-yung, says the line-up of chief executive hopefuls is still unclear probably because Beijing hasn't made up its mind on who should run. He also says there could be a power struggle going on within the local establishment. The Chief Executive, CY Leung, says he won't stop any of his ministers if they want to campaign for his job. His comment comes amid reports that the Chief Secretary, Carrie Lam, will step down this week to pave the way for her to run in the chief executive election in March. Cheung speaks to Jim Gould.
North Korea ready to test missile Listen
North Korea says it's ready to test a long-range ballistic missile at any time. That was the message from the country's leader, Kim Jong-un, in his new year's address. It came just days before Donald Trump takes over as president of the United States. The current American administration has made it clear that if such a missile were launched, it would be shot down. RTHK's Seoul correspondent, Frank Smith, tells Annemarie Evans that North Korea does have the potential to develop a missile that would be capable of reaching the United States.
