China Europe International Exchange (CEINEX) co-hosted “The New Silk Road” seminar in Frankfurt on June 12, 2017, in partnership with Bloomberg. The event convened international market participants and financial institutions to discuss the opportunities and challenges of investing in China.
Mr. Hubertus Väth, Managing Director of Frankfurt Main Finance e.V. delivered a keynote speech on German-China economic and financial collaboration. “China and Germany have enjoyed two firsts together. President Xi Jinping and Angela Merkel were the first to agree on establishing a European RMB-Clearing hub. This was followed in 2015 by the opening of CEINEX, the first dedicated platform for China- and RMB-related investment products outside mainland China,” said Mr. Väth.
“As the first dedicated trading venue for China- and RMB-related financial tools in international markets, CEINEX is a great example for the mutual opening up of capital markets between China and Europe, bridging the markets by creating new trading opportunities,” said Dr. CHEN Han, Co-CEO of CEINEX. “CEINEX offers financial support to infrastructure projects along the Belt and Road, thus promoting global trade and economy development.”
“We are pleased to partner with CEINEX to organize this event for key financial market players in Germany, so they can better understand the market opportunities that China’s Belt & Road initiative presents,” said Mr. Ee Chuan Ng, Head of Bloomberg China. “Bloomberg is committed to connecting international investors to China’s vast capital markets and Chinese companies to global markets.”
Dr. CHEN Han discussed the development and opening-up of China’s equity markets. Speakers from CEINEX as well as China AMC, Commerz Funds Solutions, Hefeng Family Office and Bloomberg participated in panel discussion on China’s equity market.
Following the event in Frankfurt, CEINEX also participated in the London seminar on June 15 with Bloomberg. Ambassador Liu Xiaoming attended the event and delivered a keynote speech. CEINEX participated in the panel discussion on China’s equity market. Total of 260 audience from banks, asset management companies and other financial organizations in Frankfurt and London participated in the two events.
