SAMPLE NEWS PRESENTATIONS

HONG KONG
1) Story: Hong Kong economy
Latest news: Last week the Hang Seng recorded its biggest week of gains in
about 2 ½ years. Some local media report that the gains were due to relief over
Europe securing a deal over Greek debt. At the same time, government officials
said at Legco that a slowdown in growth and a threat of a property price bubble
remain threats to Hong Kong’s economy.
Angles to pursue: Reporter will plan a reaction story — watching Hang Seng
opening on Monday to assess if investor optimism remains, talking to market
analysts and people in the HK real estate market.


2) Story: Right of abode
Latest news: A High Court judge said the government could temporarily stop
processing helpers’ applications for permanent residency until the conclusion of

plans the government is drawing up following the upcoming appeal ruling.

to worsen floods that have inundated the city and prompted governments to warn
their citizens to stay away.

5) Story: China / security moves

Qantas, and what are Hong Kong travel agents telling their customers. We’ll go to

8) Story: World’s population
