Roundtable Discussion: 

Dr. JIANG Chao, Global Chief Economist, Haitong Securities will be presenting his views on the global economy from a China perspective and discuss opportunities and challenges for Australian Investors.

The recent decision by MSCI to include China A Shares has had broad support from international institutional investors. This support primarily stems from the positive impact on the accessibility of the China A market of both the Stock Connect program and the loosening by the local Chinese stock exchanges of pre-approval requirements as part of broader reforms to China’s financial services sector.

At the same time, the world is undergoing substantial geopolitical changes affecting both sovereign trade and investment relationships and global capital flows. China’s GDP per capita has reached the magic US$8,000 and combined with reforms across many important sectors including financial services, the opportunity to share in its growth is available through listed securities. These securities include current national, regional and international industry champions rapidly becoming household brand names in Australia.
