Posted by Reading Time: < 1 minute

July 1 – The July/August issue of China Briefing magazine is out now and available for download (click on the image – subscription required, however this is complimentary).

In this issue, we take an in-depth look at Beijing, concentrating on the reemergence of the capital as the nation’s financial center. The development of Beijing’s Financial Street has largely escaped the mainstream press. Yet, astonishingly, an entirely new district, has sprung up west of Tiananmen Square. The implications for China’s financial services industry are huge. Home to government regulators, China’s largest banks, and serious global players such as JPMorgan, HSBC, and Goldman Sachs, the new wealth and power base that has been created here is astounding. We look at the history of the area, at why the shift has occurred, provide maps and guides to what’s where, and interview some of the key players.

Included in this issue:

Why Beijing’s Financial Street has the upper hand over Hong Kong and Shanghai
The global financial institutions that have already arrived
The application procedures for a banking license in China
China’s other financial centers: Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Taipei
China’s futures and commodity exchanges
