Russia’s VTB obtains full access to China’s interbank bond market
VTB Bank becomes the first among Russian banks having full access to the China’s interbank bond market, the Russian state-owned bank said on Friday. Development of required infrastructure for trading transactions on that market was completed with assistance of the Bank of China, VTB reported.
The China’s domestic bond market is the world’s third largest in terms of floated debentures and is over 5 trillion dollars in the equivalent. The access to this investment floor will make possible to broaden the range of counterparties and give an impetus to development of financial cooperation between Russia and China, VTB said.
"We made the next important step in development of Sino-Russia interbank relations, making possible to offer a unique investment service to VTB clients. Strategic partnership with the largest Chinese banks on the whole and with the Bank of China in particular is of key importance for VTB," Chief Executive Officer of VTB Andrei Kostin said in a comment.
