On November 10, 2015, Chinese President Xi Jinping held the 11th meeting of the Communist Party leadership on financial and economic affairs, calling for stock markets to be better regulated so that investors are treated fairly.
Xi pointed out that in promoting economic structural reforms, the effort should focus on key issues. He called for efforts to resolve excess capacity effectively, promote optimal industrial restructuring, reduce costs and help businesses stay competitive, resolve the real estate inventory, and promote a sustainable development of the real estate industry.
On stock markets, Xi stated that efforts should be made to guard against and defuse financial risks and to accelerate the formation of stock markets that have a fully functional financing mechanism, a solid infrastructure, effective regulation of the stock markets, and full protection of the interests of investors.
