FSDC welcomes green bond issued by Link REIT
The following is issued on behalf of the Financial Services Development Council:

     The Financial Services Development Council (FSDC) welcomed the issue of a green bond in Hong Kong, as announced by Link Asset Management Limited today (July 15).
     The Chairman of the FSDC, Mrs Laura M Cha, said, "We are encouraged to see the green bond issued by Link REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) in Hong Kong, being the first green bond issued by a Hong Kong business enterprise and the first such issue by a property company in Asia. The issuance echoes with the recommendations made by the FSDC in its report titled 'Hong Kong as a Regional Green Finance Hub', which was released in May this year. We look forward to more issues of green bonds in Hong Kong to boost the development of Hong Kong's green finance market."
