Chinese delegation led by China’s vice-premier Ma Kai visits premises of Luxembourg Stock Exchange during official visit
The Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) today welcomed a Chinese delegation led by Ma Kai, China’s vice-premier.
Commenting on the visit, Robert Scharfe, CEO of LuxSE, said: “We are honored to welcome Mr. Ma and his colleagues to the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. Listings of renminbi-denominated securities at LuxSE have been growing in recent years and this number looks set to increase in the years to come, especially due to the long term and trustful relationship between the LuxSE and its Chinese partners. As the world’s leading Stock Exchange for the listing of Green Bonds, today’s meeting has also enabled us to underline the extraordinary efforts taken by the Chinese Government as a main actor in green finance.”
The vice-premier toured LuxSE’s offices before meeting with members of LuxSE’s Management, where they discussed recent initiatives, including the recent launch of the Luxembourg Green Exchange.
LuxSE listed Europe’s first offshore renminbi bond from a non-Chinese issuer, or Dim Sum bond, in 2011 as well the first Green bond worldwide back in 2007. Today, with 90 Dim Sum bonds listed by issuers from 23 countries, LuxSE is the number one listing venue for Dim Sum bonds in Europe and with 115 Green Bonds listed, the number one worldwide.
