FS welcomes China Development Bank's issuance of Belt and Road bond in Hong Kong
     The Financial Secretary, Mr Paul Chan, today (December 20) welcomed the issuance of the first Belt and Road bond by the China Development Bank in Hong Kong.

     "Hong Kong is one of the world's leading financial centres and China's international financial capital. We have been the unique two-way platform connecting the Mainland market and investors with the global market.  Hong Kong is well-positioned to be the key services and capital hub for the Belt and Road, and to meet the needs of the relevant projects in investment, funding and financing," Mr Chan said.

     "The Government will strive to enhance the quality and competitiveness of Hong Kong's markets, in order to reinforce our status as an international financial centre and a premier capital raising centre, and to capitalise on the opportunities presented by major development strategies, including the Belt and Road Initiative.

     "In April this year, the Securities and Futures Commission also set out the factors that it would take into account when reviewing the proposed listing of infrastructure project companies in Hong Kong. I hope more enterprises from economies along the Belt and Road will make good use of Hong Kong's platform for financing and investment," he added.
