ASX has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the China Futures Association (CFA), with an initial term of 5 years.

ASX and CFA intend to cooperate in areas of common interest within the futures markets in Australia and China, which in the first instance, will involve the cross-training of staff and exchange of information to develop an understanding of how the markets and futures products are evolving in both jurisdictions.

The MOU will also enable the ASX to develop a better understanding of China’s futures markets at a time when these markets are evolving rapidly, and the trade and investment flows between Australia and China are growing.
