The Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Chongwa (Macao) Financial Asset Exchange Co., Ltd. (MOX) in Macau. The agreement marks the beginning of a fruitful cooperation between the two parties, with a specific focus on promoting cross-border investment and liquidity for offshore RMB-denominated financial products.

Building bridges

The Memorandum of Understanding is the first agreement of its kind entered into by LuxSE and MOX, and is testament to the increasing importance of the financial developments in the Greater Bay Area.

“As we move into a new decade, LuxSE is proud to partner with MOX and continue our mission to establish links between capital markets and the international investor community. This agreement reflects LuxSE’s strategy of expanding our international footprint and cooperate with selected exchanges across the world,” stated Robert Scharfe, CEO of LuxSE.

 

New decade and new initiatives

Macau is an autonomous region on the south coast of China, across the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong. The Chongwa (Macao) Financial Asset Exchange is Macau’s only exchange and was formally established in 2018. In the past two years, MOX has rapidly expanded to include issuers such as the Chinese Ministry of Finance.

MOX is the only institution in Macau to facilitate bond issuance, as well as trading and settlement services.

“This is not only a step forward for MOX's internationalisation, but also a key step for MOX, as a financial infrastructure in Macau, to actively cooperate with an important European partner to promote the development of the Macao bond market and push forward Macau’s diversified economy,” commented Mex Zhang, Executive Chairman and President of MOX.
