The following is issued on behalf of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority:

     The Ministry of Finance (MoF) held a roadshow in Hong Kong today (October 25) for its US dollar sovereign bond issuance. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) welcomes the MoF's initiative.

     The Chief Executive of the HKMA, Mr Norman Chan, said, "We welcome MoF to issue the US dollar sovereign bonds in Hong Kong since the previous issuance of such bonds by the MoF in 2004. The MoF's choice to issue this US dollar sovereign bond to international investors in Hong Kong highlights the status of Hong Kong as a premier international financial centre in Asia, as well as our strategic position as the natural gateway linking our Mainland hinterland to the world."

     The MoF will issue US$2 billion of sovereign bonds in Hong Kong, including US$1 billion of 5-year bonds and USD1 billion of 10-year bonds.  The issued bonds will be settled on November 2.
