The government proposes that the stock market fluctuates immediately after the tax increase. Chen Maobo said in his blog today (28th) that Hong Kong stocks provide a large number of mainland business or mainland technology-based corporate stock options, plus the protection of the free flow of funds and the implementation of the common law judicial system, and Under the interconnection system, the close connection between the Hong Kong and Mainland stock markets constitutes the unique and core advantage of the Hong Kong securities market. Some people jokingly say that it is some form of "single market business". This advantage is difficult to replicate. It drives the continuous development of the market. A substantial increase, while providing room for a slight increase in the stamp duty rate.

Stamp duty plus 30% Chen Maobo said that every 100,000 yuan transaction only pays 30 yuan more

Chen Maobo rebutted the government’s new proposal, in fact, for every 100,000 yuan of transactions, investors have to pay 30 yuan more stamp duty, which is affordable to ordinary traders. The fluctuations in the Hong Kong stock market in the past few days have been affected by external factors on the one hand, and on the other. On the one hand, the valuations of individual stocks (especially technology stocks) have risen sharply for a period of time, and their valuations have been adjusted higher. This does not affect the authorities’ judgment on the overall status of the Hong Kong stock market and the international financial center. Tokyo, Seoul and Shanghai also experienced different degrees of decline.

Chen Maobo emphasized that when making the relevant decision, he has carefully and fully assessed and measured the potential impact of the measures on the competitiveness of the Hong Kong market, and will continue to observe specific changes for future reference, and will continue to promote the diversified and vigorous development of the financial market.
