ACG logo

In 1997, the Asia-Pacific Central Securities Depository Group (ACG) was formed to facilitate the exchange of information and promote mutual assistance among depositories and clearing organizations in the Asia-Pacific region. In the same year, the region was swept by the heavy waves of the Asian financial crisis, which lessons highlighted the importance of regional cooperation and integration in achieving financial stability. Two decades have passed, and the ACG now has 34 members from 24 countries, and engages in active cooperation with other regional associations and various international bodies.

As the Executive Committee Chairman, I am committed to the mission of the ACG, and will dedicate myself to exploring a broader business horizon, seeking wider

participation, expanding networks and activities, as well as raising the ACG’s profile in the international arena. The ACG will constantly adapt to the rapidly evolving environment to provide effective support to its members’ needs so they may meet the demands of their respective markets. The ACG will be a platform for members to enhance their capabilities through knowledge sharing, voice their interests in global initiatives, and promote financial market development.

By sharing these objectives and working together to pursue our common aims, the ACG can promote harmonization and progress in the region. The cooperation of each and every member will be vital to the development of corresponding markets and create a synergy that leads to the prosperity of the Asia-Pacific region. I look forward to your active participation and support.
