China's securities regulator lists capital market reform priorities

China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) has listed 12 priorities for deepening reform of the country's capital market, the country's securities regulator said Tuesday.

The key tasks were discussed at a symposium on comprehensively deepening the reform of the capital market held by the CSRC in Beijing from September 9 to 10, the CSRC said on its website.

China should give full play to the role of China's science and technology innovation board (STAR) as an experimental field, and encourage listed companies to enhance their quality, the CSRC statement said.

The country will further promote the reform of ChiNext, China's NASDAQ-style board of growth enterprises, and see faster reform in China's National Equities Exchange and Quotations (NEEQ), or the "new third board," according to the statement.
