Financial Leaders Forum convenes second meeting
     The Financial Leaders Forum, chaired by the Financial Secretary, Mr Paul Chan, held its second meeting today (November 28).
     At today's meeting, Members of the Forum deliberated on the development of Hong Kong as a preferred listing platform for both initial public offering (IPO) and secondary listing, with targeted focus on emerging and innovative companies; recommendations made by the Financial Services Development Council on positioning Hong Kong as an international IPO centre of choice; and capital and securities market initiatives, as envisaged by the Securities and Futures Commission, for enhancing Hong Kong's competitiveness as an international financial centre.

     Mr Chan said, "The Forum had in-depth, concrete and forward-looking discussions today, and has broadly accepted several overarching principles involved. I thank Members for their valuable counsel on issues put up for discussion.
     "The Government and regulators will continue to strive to strengthen Hong Kong's position as a premier listing destination, and enhance the competitiveness of Hong Kong as an international financial centre, scaling new heights for our financial services sector," Mr Chan said.

    The Forum will meet again in the next quarter.
