More public rental flats should be built to help people living in poverty Listen
A former assistant director of Social Welfare Rachel Cartland says one of the ways to help people living in poverty is by building more public rental flats so that they would at least have a roof over their heads. She says once this is done, welfare payments should be enough to cover their expenses. Cartland also says the issue of the ageing population should be looked into separately by the administration. She tells Annemarie Evans that those who are healthy should be encouraged to continue working -- rather than stopping when they reach retirement age.

Suu Kyi blames conflicts on illegal immigration Listen
Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi says the world is facing instability and conflict in part because illegal immigration spreads terrorism, as her country faces accusations of violently pushing out hundreds of thousands of unwanted Rohingya Muslims. Suu Kyi did not directly mention the refugee exodus in a speech to European and Asian foreign ministers in Myanmar's capital, Naypyitaw. But her speech highlighted the views of many in the country who see the Rohingya as illegal immigrants and accuse them of terrorist acts. Myanmar has been widely criticised for the military crackdown that has driven more than 620,000 Rohingya to flee Rakhine state into neighbouring Bangladesh. RTHK’s Southeast Asia correspondent Larry Jagan told Annemarie Evans that Suu Kyi was avoiding the issue when she made her speech.
