This single volume assembles a veritable 'dream team' of contributors who are amongst the very best scholars and legal specialists in the many national jurisdictions covered in the book.

A co-publication with Simmonds and Hill In this important study, Dr. Zhu Sanzhu offers a thorough account of the tortuous passage of China from an experimental securities market, subject to regional and local or ministerial regulation, to a full-fledged national securities law. China has conducted its securities experiments within a limited private and quasi-private sector, not linking them, as has been true in Central and Eastern Europe, to the rapid privatisation of the instruments and means of production. The capital markets in China are, for certain actors in the economy, a test of economic performance, economic efficiency, and public confidence. Dr Zhu also provides a translation of the Securities Law of the People's Republic of China along with a glossary of Chinese terms. This volume is an essential resource for all those engaging in business with China or studying the integration of the Chinese economy into the world community.

Listing by companies from one country on the stock market of another country is a device often used both to raise capital in, and to increase bonding with, the target country. This book examines the listing by Chinese companies on the Hong Kong stock market. It discusses the extent of the phenomenon, compares the two different regulatory regimes, and explores the motivations for the cross-listing. It argues that a key factor, in addition to raising capital and bonding with the Hong Kong market, is Chinese companies’ desire to encourage legal and regulatory reforms along Hong Kong lines in mainland China, in order to develop and open up China’s domestic capital markets.
