Guangzhou to host fintech projects in government sandbox in race with Beijing, Shanghai

The southern Chinese city of Guangzhou has joined Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen in boosting local fintech innovations by introducing a sandbox programme that allows stock exchanges, as well as securities and futures companies to experiment with new technology initiatives, according to a plan unveiled by local authorities this week.

The project has received the blessing of the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), officials said.
