Hong Kong Calls for More Transparency and Stronger Supervision of Virtual Assets

The Financial Secretary of Hong Kong, Mr. Paul Chan, called for a stronger focus on transparency and proper supervision when dealing with virtual assets. The Financial Secretary highlighted the importance of being “steady and cautious” when promoting the development of the virtual asset industry in Hong Kong to facilitate the orderly and vigorous development of the market. The Financial Secretary noted that a stable and sustainable crypto industry would become a reality with transparent operations and proper and appropriate supervision.
