Mainland China Activities

With the introduction of the CEPA agreement in January 2004, the links between the financial market communities in Hong Kong and Mainland China have become closer. Recognising the importance of this continuing trend to our members, the Hong Kong Securities and Investment Institute has expanded its service offering into the Mainland China market, with the introduction of Mainland China training programmes and examinations to be held throughout 2004.

The Institute views the CEPA agreement and the subsequent mutual recognition of qualifications of securities and futures practitioners by both the SFC and CSRC, as a significant step forward in the development of closer co-operation between the Hong Kong and Mainland China financial services industries. Throughout the coming year, the Institute will continue its active dialogue with key Mainland Chinese regulators, exchanges, brokers and fund managers to ensure that local practitioners are able to maximise the growth opportunities derived from the continued development of the Mainland China market.
