As an important part of the forum, the Environmental Risk Management Initiative for China‘s Overseas Investment was signed by seven industrial associations, which was released on the People’s Bank of China’s website. The initiative was an important move to encourage and catalyze the environmental risk management of China’s overseas financial and investment entities.
