China Information Technology Development Limited (CITD), a leading technology company listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited, has announced a partnership with Echo International Holdings Group Limited, a key player in the global business landscape. This collaboration signifies a significant stride in the realm of digital ownership and tokenization, particularly in the corporate bond sector.
Echo International Holdings Group Limited, headquartered in Hong Kong and listed on the GEM of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited since October 11, 2013, aims to expand its business providing Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) to international customers. This collaboration ventures into uncharted territory as Echo International engages CITD’s expertise to embark on a transformative tokenization project focused on corporate bonds. The primary objective of this initiative is to revolutionize traditional financial instruments by introducing efficiency and accessibility in financial markets through the tokenization of corporate bonds.
The partnership encompasses a range of services provided by CITD, including the development of tokenized corporate bonds customized to Echo International Holdings Group Limited’s specific requirements. These tokenized corporate bonds, referred to as the Tokens, bring a new dimension to the conventional financial landscape. The initiative provides flexibility in the issuance size, with an initial token issuance of up to HKD 180 million. Further issuances will be determined based on market dynamics and demand.
Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Daniel Wong, CEO, and Chairman of CITD, expressed his excitement, stating, “We are thrilled to collaborate with Echo International Holdings Group Limited on this innovative tokenization project. This partnership underscores our dedication to advancing technology’s role in shaping the future of finance. CITD’s cutting-edge technology and expertise in blockchain and Digital Ownership Tokens (DOTs) position us as the ideal partner for Echo International Holdings Group Limited’s ambitious project. By tokenizing corporate bonds, our collaboration aims to create a more accessible, efficient, and secure financial environment, establishing both companies as pioneers in the digital transformation of the financial industry.”
