BEIJING, May 21, 2013 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- The top stories of China stock market on May 22: 1. Xiao Gang, Chairman of China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), China's top securities regulator, said on Tuesday that the CSRC would further push forward reform and opening-up of the domestic capital market, and protect the legitimate rights and interests of small investors in the market.
Xiao said the CSRC aimed to crack down on illegal behavior and prevent systemic risk from the domestic market to boost healthy development of the capital market in the country.
The top regulator would also strengthen information disclosure on the stock market via high-tech supervision methods.
China's capital market is still an emerging market and has great potentials of development in the future, Xiao said, adding the country should catch the opportunities to promote the reform and opening-up of the domestic market, stick to the direction of marketization, legalization, and internationalization, and further optimize allocation of resources for the domestic market.
