Shanghai will strive to create a pricing system for bonds, stocks, gold, oil, and provide more assets for international investors to trade and hedge risks, and the city will become a hub for settlement and risk management of yuan-denominated products, said Jin, noting China will enhance influence in the formulation of international standards and rules on green, digital, science and technology finance.
