CICC Obtains AIX Trading Membership as 1st International Member

China International Capital Corporation (“CICC”), through its wholly owned subsidiary CICC Hong Kong Securities ltd., had obtained trading membership of Astana International Exchange Limited (“AIX”) and become the first international member of AIX.

AIX is the first international exchange in Central Asia, providing global investor access to this rapidly growing part of the world.
