Chairman’s Statement

In the last two decades, CCDC, as a major FMI in China, has been focusing on providing a full range of safe, efficient, professional services for the financial market, and devoting to its innovation and development. It plays an important role in serving the real economy, meeting regulatory needs, preventing and mitigating financial risks, protecting the interests of investors. It also promotes the opening-up of the market, and engages in the great progress of the financial market reform in China.

Twenty years ago, a lot remained to be done in China’s financial market. China’s reform and opening-up and the rapid development of the financial market was accompanied by systematic risks. The establishment of a sound bond depository and settlement mechanism was important not only for the healthy and stable development of the bond market and the financial system, but also for direct financial regulation to move towards an indirect one. CCDC came into being in this context.

Over the past twenty years, CCDC has traversed an extraordinary path. The centralized bond depository service was launched in 1996. It started to provide a wide range of services and compile the bond Yield Curve in 1999. The Commercial Bank OTC Government Bond System was put into operation in 2002. The company business system was connected to the High Value Payment System of PBC in 2004. The new version of the website on China’s bond market information was launched in 2008. DVP settlement was made possible across the market in 2013. China Credit Assets Registration & Exchange Co., Ltd. (CCRE) was established in 2014, and ChinaBond Government Bond Yield Curve started to be published on the MOF website. CCDC also established its Shanghai Branch and Shenzhen office in 2016, and IMF included its three-month government bond yield in the SDR interest rate basket. As a Chinese saying goes, the virtues of sharing and altruism will be passed on forever. In recent years in particular, CCDC continues to serve as a FMI, follow the rules in the sector and grasp new opportunities for market development. It also steadily implements the development strategies of “Two Transformations” and “Diversification, Conglomeration and Internationalization” and therefore, its role as a major FMI in the market is enhanced. Through nearly two decades’ development, CCDC has become a platform for the operation of the bond market, for the implementation of macro-control policies, for the benchmark pricing of the financial market, for risk management of the financial market, for the innovation, research and development of the bond market, as well as for diversified financial market services.The last two decades has witnessed not only the growth of CCDC as a company but also its significant contribution to China’s financial market.

As another Chinese saying goes, those who aspire for success aim at perfection. As it celebrates its 20th anniversary, CCDC shoulders the responsibility of carrying forward the past achievements and forging ahead into the promising future. It needs to engage more in the innovation, development and opening-up of China’s bond market. To transform the bond market in China, its role as a major FMI needs to be brought into full play. CCDC will continue to work in line with the strategic plan of comprehensively deepening reform developed by the central committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the State Council and follow the strategy of building safe and efficient financial infrastructure adopted during the 5th Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee of the CPC. In addition, with the support of the Chinese government, it will continue to serve the real economy with the interests of its clients as the first priority. In this process, past experience can be drawn upon and more progress will be made in the future.
