China's securities regulator pledges to put interests of investors first


China's securities regulator stressed the importance of putting interests of investors first in its regulatory efforts at a two-day work conference that concluded Friday.

The China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) held its 2024 system work conference and outlined its priorities for the year.

The commission said it will focus on protecting the interests of investors, especially small and medium investors, by improving market fairness and transparency.

Specifically, the CSRC will promote the development of high-quality companies by improving the quality assessment standards for listed companies.

The CSRC will also encourage the inclusion of market value in the performance evaluation of state-owned enterprises.

In addition, the CSRC will supervise and guide listed companies to strengthen their awareness of returning value to investors. This could involve measures such as encouraging dividend payouts and share buybacks.

On the same day, China's forex regulator reiterated its commitment on institutional opening up, which includes promoting cross-border financial market connectivity to attract foreign investors. 

The People's Bank of China also announced on the day that it will increase financial support for major strategies, key areas, and weak links.
