China welcomes A shares inclusion in MSCI's EM Index

Updated 2017-06-21 10:12:32 CGTN

China's securities regulator has expressed its appreciation for MSCI including A shares in its Emerging Markets Index and the All Country World Index.

China Security Regulatory Commission (CSRC) spokesman Zhang Xiaojun said the move shows international confidence in China's economy and financial markets that are now more open to foreign capital.

He said the inclusion opens opportunities and brings challenges to capital markets. The CSRC will continue to improve rules on foreign fund managers investing in A shares to make it more convenient for foreign investors to invest in mainland stocks through multiple methods, including the MSCI indices, he said.
