SAR's tax-raising options; interview with Taiwan's new cultural envoy in the SAR (06 Feb 2003)


With just four weeks to go before the Financial Secretary unveils the 2003 budget, tonight's progamme examines the government's tax-raising options. While officials have ruled out a sales tax, modest increases in salaries tax and profits tax look increasingly likely -- although the main popularly elected political parties argue against a widening of the tax net to bring in more of the working population. There's also an interview with Taiwan's new cultural envoy in Hong Kong, novelist and playwright Lu Ping.
