SFC and HKEX extend deadline for response to the joint consultation on listing regulation

The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) and The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX), have announced a two-month extension of the deadline for responding to the joint consultation on the proposed enhancements to the Exchange’s decision-making and governance structure for listing regulationNote.

The consultation period will now end on November 18, 2016.

In light of the great deal of interest and a wide range of views expressed since the publication of the consultation paper and given that much of the consultation period coincided with the summer season, an extension will give all interested parties further time to file their submissions.
