Julie Becker: Prioritising Innovation-Sustainable Investment at LGX

As the premier listing venue for international bonds, the Luxembourg Stock Exchange has been working very closely with Chinese issuers for several years to facilitate their access to international capital markets and investors. And this cooperation with China has naturally expanded into the field of sustainable finance. Many successful joint initiatives with the Chinese partners have been developed in recent years, notably in the fields of information dissemination and indexes, etc. And these opportunities all capture the power that the finance industry has to propel innovative sustainable investment opportunities that improve inclusive growth.

H.E. Mr. WU Jianli: Implementing the New Development Concept to Foster a Sustainable Investment Landscape

In line with China’s current economic development stage, sustainable investment is an investment approach and concept that integrates environmental protection, social responsibility, and corporate governance. It emphasizes economic and social benefits and is a practical manifestation of the new development concept “innovation, coordination, green, openness, and sharing” in investment practices. Sustainable investment is a powerful tool for promoting economic transformation and upgrading to achieve high-quality development and has broad development prospects.

H.E. Mervyn King: Global Inflation and Resources Redistribution under Radical Uncertainty

We live in a world of radical uncertainty. We hope that governments and central banks can rise to the challenge, ensuring prosperity in the years ahead. Many of these challenges will require greater understanding and cooperation between countries. Despite the rising tensions between the United States and China, the future of the world depends on greater collaboration between them to ensure the growth of prosperity of all countries in the world. The responsibilities of the United States and China are both great, but the rewards are greater still.

H.E. Mr. LOU Jiwei: Innovative Exploration for the Development of Sovereign Wealth Funds in China

China Investment Corporation (CIC) is recognized as a sovereign wealth fund that conforms to international norms. Over the past 15 years, the CIC has been following mechanisms: to diversify investment centered on asset allocation; to adhere to financial investment and responsible investment; to establish a transparent and standardized management system, and a investment decision-making and risk management mechanism; and to implement a long-term investment philosophy. The CIC aims to fulfil its duty as a SWF that seeks higher returns over a longer period and takes higher risks. On the international front, CIC actively implements the governance in transparency and standards.
