Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing

Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing

China’s Contenders for Global Financial Centre Leadership

(p.126) 7 Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing
International Financial Centres after the Global Financial Crisis and Brexit

David R. Meyer

China’s extraordinary economic growth over recent decades underpins the top global rank of its financial centres of Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing. Hong Kong is China’s window to global capital, an Asia-Pacific leader, and one of the top three global financial centres, along with London and New York. Shanghai is the commercial-financial centre, and Beijing is the political-regulatory centre of China. Government policy supports stock- and bond-connect programmes among its exchanges, Fintech, internationalization of the renminbi, and its ‘Belt and Road’ initiative and associated Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). These directly and indirectly strengthen China’s internal financial centre networks and the centres’ global links. The government’s political and economic policies maintain Hong Kong as a premier global centre. China controls its banks, and its strength as a large economy will help mitigate the impacts of a global financial crisis.

Keywords:   Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, stock-connect, bond-connect, fintech, internationalization of renminbi, Belt and Road, AIIB
