London Stock Exchange welcomes China Construction Bank

London Stock Exchange (LSE) today welcomed China Construction Bank Corporation (CCB) in marking the listing of its off-shore RMB bond. The RMB 1 billion bond is the first CCBC off-shore RMB Bond in the London market. The LSE also welcomed China Construction Bank London Branch as a new member of the Exchange.

Mr. Wang Hongzhang, Chairman of CCB, remarked:

"We are delighted to witness the listing of CCB's off-shore RMB bond on the London Stock Exchange and to confirm that CCB London Branch has become a member of the Exchange. In the wake of a first RMB-denominated money market ETF listed in London early this year, CCB's RMB bond listing and CCB London Branch’s LSE membership are additional milestones in CCB‘s global development. We look forward to ongoing collaboration with the LSE to make further contributions to the internationalisation of the RMB."
