Abstract

This article discusses and analyses the latest capital markets law reform in China, which involves the launch of the star market (sci-tech innovation board) at the Shanghai Stock Exchange as well as the introduction of the “registration-based” IPO regime to replace the previous “approval-based” system. The article considers whether laws can be used as a useful and transformative tool to create deep and liquid capital markets and to promote technological developments.
