非洲证券交易所协会 (ASEA) 已将博茨瓦纳证券交易所 (BSE) ,和加纳证券交易所 (GSE) 纳入非洲证券交易所链接项目 (AELP)。

5 月 底,在喀麦隆杜阿拉的中非证券交易所 (BVMAC) 主办的:第 10 届建立非洲金融市场 (BAFM) 研讨会间隙举行的 “非洲证券交易所链接项目指导委员会会议”上,正式确认了这一合并。

主席 Edoh Kossi Amenounve 博士代表指导委员会发表讲话说:“两家交易所的加入证明了扩大通过非洲证券交易所链接项目整合交易所社区的重要性。我们在现有的七家交易所,增加了两个成员,希望未来几年有更多的成员加入,我们寻求更多参与资本市场整合。

“这表明我们作为交易所的承诺,即通过促进跨境证券交易和资本流动,尽最大努力实现大陆一体化。因此,我要祝贺博茨瓦纳证券交易所和加纳证券交易所,并正式接纳他们加入非洲证券交易所链接项目。”

该项目是围绕已通过非洲证券交易所协会进行的市场准备评估的选定证券交易所而建立的。参与非洲证券交易所链接项目第一阶段的原始交易所是:区域证券交易所 (BRVM)、卡萨布兰卡证券交易所 (CSE)、埃及证券交易所 (EGX)、约翰内斯堡证券交易所 (JSE)、内罗毕证券交易所 (NSE)、尼日利亚交易所 (NGX) 和毛里求斯证券交易所 (SEM)。

该项目旨在通过建立联系交易所来促进泛非投资流动。

随着最初 7 家一期交易所的互联互通取得进展,这两家交易所的加入是项目扩展的一大成果。

博茨瓦纳证券交易所首席执行官 Thapelo Tsheole 先生在评论这一里程碑时说:“非洲证券交易所链接项目是一项变革性举措,旨在彻底改变和协调撒哈拉以南地区参与交易所之间的证券交易。因此,作为博茨瓦纳证券交易所,我们当下决定加入最初的七家参与交易所,以增强我们市场跨境交易的便利性,同样,也为我们本地投资者提供通往其他区域市场的门户。

“作为非洲证券交易所链接项目的一项关键战略举措,我相信这将对整个非洲市场的流动性水平产生积极影响,因此也可以作为吸引投资流入非洲的价值主张。因此,我要感谢非洲证券交易所链接项目执行委员会同意博茨瓦纳证券交易所参与这个精彩的项目。”

两家交易所在促进其市场和地区内的跨境贸易方面都表现出更大的努力。例如,博茨瓦纳证券交易所近年来修订了其上市要求,以促进南部非洲发展共同体 (SADC) 内的区域交叉上市。加纳证券交易所参与了资本市场整合计划,作为西非资本市场整合 (WACMI) 的主要推动力。

加纳证券交易所董事总经理 Ekow Afedzie 先生在讲话中说:“加纳证券交易所很自豪能够加入非洲交易所联系项目计划。我们很高兴有机会从非洲交易所联系项值得称赞的举措中受益,通过提供一个平台来加速非洲大陆的跨境投资流动过程,以应对非洲资本市场面临的流动性挑战。

Botswana, Ghana Join African Exchanges Linkage Project


The African Securities Exchanges Association (ASEA) has admitted the Botswana Stock Exchange (BSE) and Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) to the African Exchanges Linkage Project (AELP). The admission was formalised at an AELP Steering Committee meeting on May 31, 2022, held on the sidelines of the 10th Edition of Building African Financial Markets (BAFM) Seminar, hosted by The Central African Stock Exchange (BVMAC) in Douala, Cameroon.

Speaking on behalf of the Steering Committee, the Chairman, Dr. Edoh Kossi Amenounve, said: “The admission of the two exchanges is a demonstration of the importance of enlarging the community of exchanges integrated through the AELP. As we have added two members to the current seven Exchanges, we hope that in the coming years, more will join as we seek to have increased participation in the capital markets integration.


“This shows our commitment as exchanges to put our best effort toward continental integration by facilitating cross-border securities trading and movement of capital. I would therefore like to congratulate the Botswana Stock Exchange and Ghana Stock Exchange, and officially admit them to the AELP.”

The project has been built around selected securities exchanges that have gone through market preparedness assessments conducted by ASEA. The original exchanges participating in Phase 1 of the AELP are: Bourse Régionale des Valeurs Mobilières (BRVM), Casablanca Stock Exchange (CSE), The Egyptian Exchange (EGX), Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE), The Nigerian Exchange (NGX) and Stock Exchange of Mauritius (SEM).

The project is aimed at boosting Pan-African investment flows through the creation of linked exchanges. As progress has been made on the interconnectivity of the initial seven Phase 1 exchanges, the admission of these two exchanges is a big achievement toward the expansion of the project.

Commenting on this milestone, the BSE CEO, Thapelo Tsheole, said: “The AELP is a transformational initiative that is set to revolutionise and harmonise the trading of securities among participating exchanges in the Sub-Saharan Region. Hence, as the BSE, we took the immediate decision to join the original seven participating exchanges to stimulate easier cross-border trading in our market and similarly, also provide a gateway to other regional markets for our local investors.

“As a key strategic initiative by ASEA, I am confident that will have a positive effect on liquidity levels across African markets and consequently, also serve as a value proposition to attract investment inflows into Africa. Therefore, I would like to thank the ASEA Executive Committee for admitting the BSE into this wonderful Project.”

Both exchanges have demonstrated increased efforts in promoting cross-border trading within their markets and regions. The BSE, for instance, has in recent years revised its listing requirements in order to boost regional cross-listings within the Southern African Development Community (SADC). GSE has also taken part in capital market integration initiatives as a key driver of the West African Capital Markets Integration (WACMI).

In his remarks, the Managing Director of the Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE), Ekow Afedzie, said: “The Ghana Stock Exchange is proud to be admitted to the African Exchange Linkage Project (AELP) programme. We are delighted about the opportunity to benefit from the laudable initiatives of AELP in addressing the liquidity challenges facing African capital markets by providing a platform to accelerate the process of cross-border investment flows on the continent”.
