This event will see the official launch of the Chatham House Report Shifting Capital: the Rise of Financial Centre’s in Greater China.

The report assesses four financial centres – Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Taipei – and their rise as a potential reflection of greater financial integration of China into the world. Given the rapidly changing financial environment in the Greater China region, the report considers Beijing’s role as the political engine behind reform of China's domestic financial sector, and the on-going RMB internationalization strategy.
