HKEx CEO Charles Li said that CFFEX is at the forefront of the Mainland’s financial development and HKEx, as an international exchange, is playing a leading role in China’s economic development. This shows that the two exchanges can work together towards a common goal.

CFFEX President Zhu Yuchen said that HKEx gave CFFEX a lot of support during its establishment. This MOU is the first that CFFEX has signed with another exchange.

Yuchen believes that the MOU will strengthen cooperation between the two exchanges in the future.

In October 2011, HKEx and Kazakhstan’s Eurasian Trading System Commodity Exchange ETS have signed a MOU on cooperation and the exchange of information.
