Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury Christopher Hui today said the Hong Kong financial services sector gave CPC Central Committee Hong Kong & Macao Work Office Director and State Council Hong Kong & Macao Affairs Office Director Xia Baolong a timely update on the city’s latest market developments.

On the fifth day of his inspection visit, Mr Xia met the Hong Kong financial services sector and its regulators.

Mr Xia was briefed on three major areas, including traditional core areas like the bond market and the stock market; Hong Kong’s connectivity with the Mainland via various Stock Connect programmes; and new finance areas such as fintech and green and sustainable finance.

Mr Hui said: “Today actually marks the first day of the enhanced measures for our Cross-boundary Wealth Management Connect Pilot Scheme.

“So it is also the time, and also timely, for us to brief him on the overall arrangements in terms of these latest developments.”
