The central bank on Tuesday announced a capital market connectivity mechanism between the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Securities Clearing Co.

China Securities Depository and Clearing Co. Ltd. is also allowed a special bank account at a Hong Kong bank to deal with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, said the circular.

The two banks should abide by the law to carry out obligations of anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist financing and anti-tax evasion, according to the circular.

The mechanism aims to facilitate capital market connectivity between the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong and standardize cash flow, said the circular.
