A memorandum of understanding was signed with the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) to facilitate cross-border activities and enhance regulatory collaboration.
The memorandum provides a framework to offer assistance, exchange regulatory information and co-operate in the supervision of financial institutions, with respective securities and derivatives markets laws and regulations.
It enables both regulators to work on initiatives, such as joint training and technical assistance, to strengthen high regulatory standards and practices in both markets.
The agreement was signed by Liu Shiyu, chairman of the CSRC, and Richard Teng, FRSA chief executive, in Beijing on 14 July.
It closely follows and complements FSRA’s recent agreement with the China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC) in May 2016.
