HK marathon gets 'M' Mark

The Major Sports Events Committee today announced that it has awarded the "M" Mark status to the 25th Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon to be held on February 12.   The committee's Chairman Wilfred Ng said the event will add colour and vibrancy to Hong Kong, like all other "M" Mark events.   “The 'M' Mark events showcase Hong Kong's capability to host world-class events and enhance Hong Kong's position as a centre for major international sports activities.   “These events also allow the general public to enjoy and participate in high-level competitions and nurture a sustainable sporting culture in the community,” he added.   Launched in 2004, the "M" Mark system aims to help local national sports associations organise more major international sports events and nurture them into sustainable undertakings. http://dlvr.it/Sj0HBF

RMB sovereign bonds to be issued

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government today welcomed the Ministry of Finance's plan to issue sovereign bonds totalling RMB20 billion in Hong Kong this year.   The ministry plans to issue renminbi sovereign bonds in three batches of RMB8 billion, RMB6 billion and RMB6 billion each.   The Hong Kong SAR Government noted this is the 13th consecutive year the ministry has circulated RMB sovereign bonds in Hong Kong.   It said this demonstrates clearly the central government's support in reinforcing Hong Kong's status as an international financial centre and the global offshore RMB business hub, and is conducive to promoting the sustainable development of Hong Kong's bond market.
