In 2021 and 2022, with the support of HKMA, ICMA published The Asian International Bond Markets: Development and Trends. This study provides global market stakeholders with an overview of the evolution of the market since 2006 and a detailed analysis of the previous year. The new report published in 2023 took a deeper look at regional sustainable bond markets and digitalisation.

This event presented the latest analysis and findings from the 2023 report, and featured panel discussions with a diverse group of market participants who provided their insights into the market trends and opportunities.
