Radio 3 Highlights
We kick off the week on Money For Nothing by taking a look at the latest announcements from the National People’s Congress underway in Beijing. Joining us for that discussion is Victor Shih, a professor at Northwest University. We’ll also have a look at the latest U.S. economic data and how that will affect trade in Asia. ReOrient’s Managing Director and Head of Americas David Goldman will join the programme from our Admiralty studios. RTHK’s Barry Wood will also take part for our regular markets segment.

On Backchat, we'll talk about tourists in Hong Kong. National People's Congress Chairman Zhang Dejiang said for the first time that Hong Kong's capacity for Mainland tourists was a matter of concern for the Beijing government and would be studied. What's the political significance of the statement? Should we review the individual visit scheme? Do you think building more shopping malls in Lantau could be the solution? After 9.15, Invaders' street art. Should a "Pac-man" artwork be removed from a wall? (8.30am-9.30am, call in on 233 88 266, , email email@example.com , or text 63935925)

The show’s inquiries are guided by the following questions: How is China seeking, strengthening and maintaining its global influence? How is the growth of Chinese power affecting the economic well-being and security positions of other countries? How is the world–especially the United States and China’s neighbors–reacting to China’s historic rise? How will China’s domestic economic and political liberalization, or the lack thereof, propel or hinder its rise?
Hosted by Ying Ma, China Takes Over the World airs each Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m. on RTHK Radio 3
