Deepen Mutual Access with the Mainland

81. Mutual access between the financial markets in the Mainland and Hong Kong has been deepening and widening.  Last September saw the launch of the Southbound Trading of Bond Connect and the Cross‑boundary Wealth Management Connect Scheme in the GBA.  The Shanghai‑Hong Kong Stock Connect and the Shenzhen‑Hong Kong Stock Connect have continued to expand, registering a substantial increase in trading volume.  At the end of last year, a consensus was reached among the exchanges in the two places on the inclusion of exchange traded funds (ETFs) in the mutual market access programme.  The mutual access of ETFs is expected to be implemented soon.  As a risk management tool, the A‑share index futures contract was also successfully launched last year.  We will explore more risk management products.
