Friday Beyond Spotlights, an informative yet light-hearted talk show to be airing tonight on the Hong Kong International Business Channel (#76), is where prominent guests share their insights into current affairs, business, innovation and culture, as well as their ingenuity, passion and grit which forge their Lion Rock spirit. The show is hosted by businessman and philanthropist Patrick Tsang On-yip, lawyer and lawmaker Nick Chan Hiu-fung and seasoned business maverick Herman Hu Shao-ming.

Hosted by Nick Chan Hiu-fung, the second episode of Season 2 presents Anthony Lam Sai-ho, Vice Chairman of Golden Resources Group, one of the world’s most prominent rice importers, wholesalers and distributers with its headquarters in Hong Kong. Lam also serves as Executive Deputy Chairman of the Federation of Hong Kong Industries and Chairman of the Hong Kong Q-mark Council.


In this interview, Lam shares with audience the stories behind the staple crop which is eaten by nearly all of the world’s population. Why is eating rice a culture? What has the rice industry done to increase yield and productivity in face of increasing urbanisation? Lam brings with him a priceless pair of rice gunny bag hooks handed down from generations, from which he has developed his business philosophy. He also brings a bag of “Fa Yiu Tsai” rice, a local crop variety which has recently been technologically revived from its extinction some 60 years ago, to show that the good times will return.

To find out more, tune to Episode 2 of Friday Beyond Spotlights tonight at 8:30pm on the HKIBC channel (#76).
