Opening Speech 

Mr. LIU Guangchao, founding partner and director of Beijing Docvit Law Firm and director general of Green Legal Global Alliance, hosted the first half of the forum. Mr. WANG Zhongmin, former vice president of the National Council for Social Security Fund The People's Republic of China, delivered an opening speech on "Dual Logic of Market Clearing". He put forward the interweaving of two mechanisms and two kinds of logic, thinking that both the combinational logic of SPV and the financial scene of the front end could be used. 

Keynote Speech 

Ms. ZHANG Chenghui, former director of the Institute of Finance, Development Research Center of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, delivered a keynote speech titled Market-oriented Disposal of Non-performing Assets. She reviewed the process of divestiture of non-performing assets by the four major state-owned banks, and thought that China is now ushering in the second wave of financial non-performing assets. However, this time, the problem of non-performing assets mainly occurs to small and medium-sized commercial banks instead of state-owned banks, and the risk of non-bank financial institutions and non-SEOs is increasing. 

HONG Yanrong, associate professor of Peking University Law School, delivered a speech on the issue of "securitization of non-performing assets of commercial banks". Prof. HONG expounded the advantages of non-performing asset securitization and the characteristics of its practice in China, and examined the investment in non-performing asset securitization from the perspective of risk, information flow, capital flow and equity flow. 

Ms. YANG Fang, CFO of New Hope Group, delivered a speech titled Thinking of Corporate Investors on Participating in the Non-performing Asset Market. Ms. YANG said in her speech that the essence of resolving non-performing assets is time for space. The formation of non-performing assets was caused by unwise credit, which led to the emergence of companies that could not repay their debts, which ultimately had to be resolved by the system and mechanism of debt restructuring. 

Mr. DONG Yuping, deputy general manager of Strategic Development Planning Department (Research Institute) of China Orient Asset Management Co., Ltd., expressed his views on the current market of non-performing assets and how to resolve non-performing assets. Mr. DONG believes that there is a promising market for defusing financial risks and disposing non-performing assets, and the role of market institutions led by four major AMCs should be given full play to resolve non-performing assets as soon as possible, and reduce financial risks to an acceptable level.

In the forum, the Green Legal Global Alliance formally established the Bankruptcy & Non-Performing Assets Research Center, and formally appointed Mr. CHEN Jianming as the director of the Bankruptcy & Non-Performing Assets Research Center.

Ms. XUE Ruojun, director of Strategic Customer Department of China CINDA Asset Management Co., Ltd., delivered a keynote speech on the exploration of business mode of non-performing assets under the current regulatory situation. She pointed out that since the second half of 2017, the regulatory authorities have put forward regulatory requirements for the four major AMCs to return to the core business, posing greater challenges in the balance between compliance risk and business risk. 

Mr. ZHANG Weichun, chairman and president of the Executive Committee of Chongwa (Macao) Financial Asset Exchange CO., Ltd., delivered a keynote speech titled Innovation in Overseas Market of Non-performing Assets. Mr. ZHANG Weichun analyzed the new opportunities of the non-performing asset market, and proposed that the non-performing asset market presents the characteristics of diversification of participants, diversification of disposal methods and excellent asset attributes.
