ICMA and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) did a webinar on 26th June at 9.30am (BST), 4.30pm (Hong Kong) where we reflected on the ground-breaking multi-currency digital green bond issuance by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China on 7 February 2024, and how the Bond Data Taxonomy was implemented. The issuance marked the first adoption of ICMA’s Bond Data Taxonomy (BDT) by a government issuer and a was a first for a green bond.

After a brief introduction there was a presentation on the key features of the issuance, the benefits for issuers and investors, as well as the opportunities, challenges and lessons learned.

After the presentation, Gabriel Callsen from ICMA and Georgina Lok from the HKMA discussed the implementation of the Bond Data Taxonomy and how this can pave the way for greater automation and interoperability.

There was an opportunity to ask questions after the discussion
