Government By Public Opinion?; Hong Kong's Music Industry Sings the Blues (07 Apr 2006)

Printer-friendlyPrinter-friendly

Speaking on an RTHK radio programme this week, Chief Executive Donald Tsang described strong governance as meaning that the Government put forward concrete plans and implemented them sincerely after taking into consideration public opinion. Mr Tsang's enjoying a relatively high personal approval rating at the moment, but how convinced is the public that anyone in the government is listening? With us in the studio are Christine Loh of Civic Exchange, which aims - among other things - to promote civic education among members of the community, and a man who gets his earful of public opinion on Radio 3's "Back Chat", Hugh Chiverton. This week in Britain a milestone of a kind was reached when a song reached number one in the music charts. The song, Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy", is the first song to top the charts through internet download sales alone. The international music industry is changing, and the local music industry isn't quite sure how to handle it.
