10:30 AM Keynote Panel: Internationalisation of the RMB and the Chinese bond market - How will Bond Connect support the growth in overseas ownership to levels closer to international norms?

Market participation in Bond Connect has been growing steadily, with average daily volumes reaching RMB6.55 billion in June 2018, more than double the daily average volumes in the first quarter of the year. And with recent announcement of the exemption of income tax and the full implementation of delivery-versus-payment for settlement, how has bond connect contributed to the increase in the number of approved overseas institutional investors?

-          Have improvements to access schemes affected the listing arbitrage opportunities that used to exist?
