The DAB Business and Professional Affairs Committee arranged an online meeting with the Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury Mr. Christopher Hui and representatives from Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited for the latest listing services in Hong Kong. Chambers of commerce and related companies of ASEAN countries and representatives from local financial sector also participated in the meeting.
The DAB Chairperson Ms. Starry Lee delivered a speech stating that the purpose of the meeting was for ASEAN local groups and chambers of commerce to learn more about the listing services in Hong Kong as many of them have expressed their interest during the DAB’s visit in September.
Mr. Holden Chow, Chairperson of the DAB Business and Professional Affairs Committee and LegCo member, thanked Mr. Christopher Hui for his explanation on the advantages of listing in Hong Kong, including the further expansion of the Hong Kong Stock Connect in the future to allow more overseas companies to be listed in Hong Kong and make good use of capital from the mainland.
Mr. Rock Chen, DAB Financial Affairs Spokesperson and LegCo Member, said that Hong Kong’s robust financial regulatory environment and legal system and its status as an international financial center and the gateway to the Mainland and Greater Bay Area markets were sufficient for international markets to cast their votes of confidence in Hong Kong.
The DAB Business and Professional Affairs Committee will follow up on latest measures on listing in Hong Kong and strive for more overseas and ASEAN companies to list in Hong Kong and make good use of our finance platform.
