Guy Dru Drury MBE, CBI Head of China, said:
“We warmly welcome the creation of the London-Shanghai Stock Connect. It is a ground-breaking step that will give tremendous new opportunities to grow to investors and businesses in both the UK and China.
“The Sino-British relationship is a tremendous success story, and our firms are keen to play their part in further deepening and engraining our economic ties. As the UK charts a new course with its global trading partners, the Stock Connect is a timely sign that we are open for business, and that our world beating financial services sector must be at the heart of that new future.”
