Inside this Topic Guide
What began in the late 1980's as a relatively small-scale opening up of the Chinese economy to the West has evolved into a process that is so all-encompassing that it has fundamentally reshaped the Chinese economy fuelling a rapid outbound expansion by Chinese companies, and allowing those outside of China significant access to this lucrative and growing market.
Market regulation and infrastructure has evolved to support this process and continues to do so. For example, the outbound and foreign investment frameworks and infrastructure have been revised, Free Trade Zones have developed and China's capital markets continue to open up.
A wide range of programs have been created to facilitate greater two-way market access (e.g. Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect, QFII, RQFII, QDII, QDLP/QDIE and initiatives to open up the commodities market to foreign investors) which together with key macro developments put the whole process in a global context (e.g. the internationalisation of the Renminbi).
The resources contained in this Topic Guide provide information on relevant legislation, the vast array of related secondary regulation as well as general information on key market developments concerning the liberalisation of markets in China and other key global financial centres.
