Jinyun news: on October 22, 2020, China Mining Conference and Exhibition 2020 (the 22nd session) (hereinafter referred to as "CHINA MINING") was held in an online way.
Onsite speakers of Capital Market symposium (first half)
In the first half of the Capital Market symposium, Cao Yuanzheng, former chief economist of Bank of China and chairman of BOCI Research Limited, Ba Shusong, chief China economist of HKEX, Li Chaochun, managing director of China Molybdenum Co., Ltd., and Christopher Fix, managing director and head of Asia Pacific at Chicago Commodity Exchange Group, discussed the impact of capital market on the mining industry, and put forward suggestions on how mining companies should develop under the epidemic situation.
Li Chaochun, managing director, China Molybdenum Co., Ltd. (CMOC)
Taking the interaction between China Molybdenum Co., Ltd. and the capital market as an example, Li Chaochun pointed out that “mining companies not only have traditional elements but also some modern elements, such as hedging, which requires some financial tools. Mining companies have the characteristics of capital intensive, quasi- investment and quasi-finance. The mining industry and the capital market are mutually related. The capital market gives a lot, but at the same time it turns the company into a public and open company, which needs to bear corresponding responsibilities and obligations." Li Chaochun said that in the future, he has a dream and hopes that the international market can use share-based payment in mergers and acquisitions.
Christopher Fix, managing director and head of Asia Pacific at CME Group
Christopher Fix shared the relationship between gold, copper and other mineral transactions and finance in the international market by way of video link. "With the increasing demand for minerals in the international market and the increasing scale of investment, it is necessary to innovate the capital market system to fit the unique financing characteristics of the mining industry,." said Christopher Fix.
Ba Shusong, managing director & chief China economist of HKEX,
chief economist of the China Banking Association (CBA)
Ba Shusong believes that the epidemic has accelerated the digital and intelligent transformation of the economic system. "Human history shows that epidemics and wars sometimes promote the great development of human culture and science and technology." Ba Shusong said that World War II gave birth to the development of the electronic computer field and the nuclear technology field. SARS accelerated the process of Chinese e-commerce on the stage. The epidemic of COVID-19 will have an impact on human beings in terms of scientific and technological research and development, industrial organization, artificial intelligence, and public service forms.
Cao Yuanzheng, former chief economist of Bank of China,
member of Chinese Economists 50 Forum, chairman of BOCI Research Limited
Cao Yuanzheng said: “The mining industry is a capital-intensive industry. In addition to debt, the corresponding financing will also obtain capital in the capital market. So financing activities are inevitable. The demand for mining in China is very large, but there are relatively few mines in China. Therefore, mining companies are the most internationalized companies in China. This means that only by using two kinds of funds in the mainland and overseas markets can make the mining industry bigger. Now the world’s macro- economy is in confusion, especially under the impact of the epidemic situation, the risk is increasing. In order to maintain stability and achieve long-term success, capital markets such as futures can be used to hedge risks. Therefore, the use of capital market tools has also become the internal demand of mining companies.” (Reporter/ Dong Lijing)
