In 2022, with the leadership of the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), the support of relevant ministries and commissions of the central government, and the joint efforts of market participants, China Financial Futures Exchange (CFFEX) maintained a stable, orderly, and well-functioning China government bond (CGB) futures market, which played an active role in serving the high-quality development of the bond market and the real economy. To award exemplary performance and promote market development, CFFEX recently organized the appraisal for outstanding institutions and individuals participating in the CGB futures market for the year 2022. After review and selection, 15 institutions received the Outstanding Institution Award, 3 received the Best Progress Award, and 6 received the Medium and Long-term Capital Service Award. In addition, 23 individuals nominated by the award-winning institutions received the Outstanding Trader Award.
With 2023 being the first year to comprehensively implement the guiding principles of the 20th CPC National Congress, CFFEX’s priority for the year is to pursue higher-quality development of the financial futures market. In line with the decision and arrangements of the Central Economic Work Conference, the requirements of the CSRC Annual Work Conference and the principle of “Four Awes” and “One Synergy”, CFFEX will continue to enrich the CGB futures offerings, facilitate participation by banks, insurance companies and other institutions, and guide various types of medium and long-term capital to use CGB futures in risk management. With these efforts, CFFEX aims to comprehensively promote the high-quality development of the CGB futures market, and enhance the capacity of the financial sector to serve the real economy, thus further contributing to a standardized, transparent, open, dynamic and resilient capital market.
