Abstract:

"There was much fanfare last week about the fact that the construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge is about to get underway. But who is actually going to use it? The bridge will have a capacity of 50,000 to 60,000 a day, but so far only 50,000 cross border licences have been issued in total, and getting one is complicated. Not only that, existing bridges like the one at Shenzhen Bay port are already woefully underused."--RTHK web site.

"The movie 'Slumdog Millionaire' has won plenty of awards and got plenty of accolades. It's also come in for a considerable degree of criticism for capitalising on India's poor. Last Saturday we caught up with Vikas Swarup, the author of the book on which it was based."--RTHK web site.

"At the end of February, Premier Wen Jiabao appeared on television, chatting to internet users online, and answering previously vetted questions. It was one sign of the Chinese government's increased awareness of the importance of the internet. But there's a limit to how much real debate can take place. In January this year, the central authorities started a campaign, nominally aimed at cleaning up the web. The clean-up campaign swept the internet world, but not only 'pornography' was affected. Bullog, known as the mainland's edgiest and most outspoken political website was closed down. An internationally hosted version, Bullogger, has now taken its place. Authorities also criticised popular web search engines such as Google, Baidu, Sina and Sohu for failing to control what internet users might find. Internet used have fought back with 'The Tale of the Grass Mud Horse'."--RTHK web site.
