In the last few years, the Chinese capital market has accelerated its opening-up pace. As a leading financial infrastructure in China, the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) has established co-operation relations with 53 overseas counterparts, many of which are European exchanges. The co-operation programs between these exchanges and the SSE have contributed considerably to the opening up of China’s capital market. An increasing number of global investors, as well as international financial institutions, have benefited from the Chinese economic growth partly due to such cooperation programs. What are the on-going schemes between European exchanges and the SSE. How are their prospects for success? What are the challenges for further cooperation between the UK and China in the post Brexit era and post pandemic world? Madam Christina Yang, Chief Representative of SSE London Office would like to share with the FS Club community her thoughts on these topics and look forward to hearing yours.
