According to the South China Morning Post, Zhang Xuguang, vice president of China Development Bank stated: “The bond connect mechanism promotes the allocation of yuan-denominated assets by global investors, expands the offshore use of the renminbi and pushes forward the orderly opening up of China’s capital markets… the achievements are conspicuous.”
