Hong Kong set to launch 20-year bonds in May

The Hong Kong Monetary Authority is set to launch a 20-year government bond on May 25, a first for the Hong Kong government. Financial Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po recommended last year the development of the local bond market, including the expansion of the issuance of green bonds, yuan bonds, and Hong Kong dollar bonds with longer tenors under government bond programs, to facilitate the formation of a local yield curve. Chan said the inaugural issuance of the 20-year Hong Kong dollar government bond is an important step towards implementing that recommendation. HKMA also published a tentative issuance schedule for government bonds under the Institutional Bond Issuance Programme for the next six-month period from April to September this year.
