CSF agrees with APSA on the memorandum that each Party will cooperate in the following regions:


  • In order to promote cooperation between Chinese and Asia-Pacific region's securitization and structured finance markets, each Party agrees to support the each other’s conferences and will help each other publicize, and recommend to their interested members participation in, the same.

Each Party will seek to organize in-depth discussions with lawmakers and regulatory authorities about investor education, market consensus, market building and other issues of concern, and will undertake research tasks pertaining to the Chinese and Asia-Pacific region’s markets appropriate to their respective spheres of expertise which are supported by a consensus of the Parties, lawmakers and regulatory authorities.
  • Each Party will work to promote cooperation and communication between constituents in Chinese and overseas markets. Each Party will seek to assist Chinese market constituents to learn and benefit from the experiences of overseas securitization markets,  to transform the oretical concepts into practical actions, to provide overseas markets with opportunities to understand the latest policy and regulatory initiatives and trends affecting the securitization and structured finance markets in China, and to promote strategic collaboration regarding reciprocity and mutual benefit.
  • In accordance with the common mission to “Educate, Advocateand Build Consensus”, each Party will seek to provide educational opportunities to members, law-making and regulatory bodies and other interested parties regarding securitization, structured finance and related capital markets; build the broadest possible consensus among members regarding legal, regulatory, policy and other matters and affairs affecting or potentially affecting the securitization, structured finance and related capital markets in China and internationally; and advocate for beneficial outcomes to such matters and affairs.
