Policy address gets highest score in seven years  Listenfacebook
A survey of more than 500 people shows the Chief Executive Carrie Lam's maiden policy address has scored 62.4 points out of 100 - the highest in seven years. The Hong Kong Council of Social Service has been commissioning the University of Hong Kong to carry out the annual survey since 2001. But the council said the government could have done much more to help the grassroots - as only a quarter of the respondents think measures in the policy address can improve the livelihoods of low-income people. The council's business director, Anthony Wong, spoke to Richard Pyne.
Campaign against political repression in Hong Kong  Listenfacebook
Local activists and lawmakers are calling for international support as part of a campaign against what they call growing political repression in Hong Kong. Organisers of the campaign known as "Stop Repression in Hong Kong" say the city is experiencing the "worst political repression" since the handover, citing the cases of disqualified lawmakers and the jailing of young activists. The organisers say hundreds of activists around the world have signed a petition supporting the campaign, and protests have been held in 20 countries. A coordinator of the campaign, Sally Tang, spoke to Richard Pyne.
Samsung's CEO resigns  Listenfacebook
The CEO of the South Korean technology giant, Samsung Electronics, has resigned. Kwon Oh-hyun said the time had come for the company to start anew with younger leadership. It's the latest setback for the firm whose former head, Lee Jae-yong, was sentenced to five years in prison in August on bribery charges. RTHK’s Seoul correspondent, Frank Smith, told Todd Harding that although Mr Kwon’s resignation appears to be a blow for Samsung, the company is still very financially sound.
