TSX Group returns to China

    9-day China trip includes visits to Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing

    TORONTO, March 26 /CNW/ - TSX Group is heading back to China this month.
Richard Nadeau, Senior Vice President of Toronto Stock Exchange, will lead
this latest trip to China, from March 27-April 5, 2007. Mr. Nadeau will hold a
series of meetings across Hong Kong and China with the aim of raising
awareness of Canada's capital markets and attracting international listings.
    This trip, which will focus on Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, will
build on the visit last November that showcased the strengths of Canada's
capital markets among Chinese companies. On the agenda will be meetings with
potential issuers, government officials, and Chinese advisors and
intermediaries who help service Chinese companies seeking access to Canadian
capital markets.
    Mr. Nadeau will be meeting with the Shanghai Stock Exchange, the Shanghai
Equity Exchange and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange to explore ways of working
closer together. TSX is also working alongside the Canadian Embassy and
Consulate in Hong Kong and Shenzhen. The Canadian government is helping to
coordinate many of the meetings and ensuring TSX Group is meeting with
appropriate stakeholders.
    This trip is part of TSX Group's ongoing strategy to develop an
international business development platform in China. TSX Group is able to
leverage its strong position in key sectors like mining, energy and small and
medium sized enterprises to provide key markets for issuers in these sectors.
    "We see the importance of this region to our international strategy and
these events help us reach potential listing candidates," said Mr. Nadeau. "We
plan to look at ways to establish a permanent presence in China as we believe
this would provide us with many positive outcomes and enhance our credibility
in that region."
    There are 34 Chinese companies on both Exchanges (12 on TSX, 22 on TSXV)
and 22 Chinese related companies on both exchanges (9 TSX, 13 TSXV). A list of
these listings on Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange is available
on tsx.com.
