This post was originally published on this site

Hong Kong, China — (SBWIRE) — 05/27/2021 — Chinese efforts to integrate its financial system on a global scale have taken another step towards a conclusion with The Wealth Connect programme. The programme allows for investments of RMB 150 billion ($ 23 billion) to be made in either direction between Hong Kong and mainland China, with an individual limit of RMB 1 million ($ 155,000). It will open the door to more investment in Hong Kong from China, including the Greater Bay Area, which is home to more than 70 million people. The Wealth Connect Programme is an addition to an existing programme that connects the stock and bond markets between mainland China and Hong Kong and will also allow foreign investors to buy mainland China products. The scheme is designed to continue the process of opening up the capital markets of Mainland China and strengthening Hong Kong’s international reputation for finance.
