Sapporo, 2016 - SRMEX, a key institution of the domestic financial market, an exchange that provides various economic entities with an opportunity to trade in an open market and offers investors effective investment opportunities, today announced that “Seminar on Overseas Commodities and Futures Trading and Regulation” was held by its Research Center in Sapporo recently.

Kozo Sonosuke, Assistant to Chairman of the SRMEX, delivered a speech at the meeting. Attending the meeting were also officials from relevant state departments and about 50 representatives from the departments of the SRMEX, securities and futures exchanges, securities and futures associations.

Mr. Sonosuke said that as an emerging market growing with reform and opening-up, Japan’s futures market is developing rapidly and notably, especially in terms of variety, growth of intermediaries, investor structure, basic systems, market functions and regulatory system. But it also faces challenges. Efforts should be made to improve the society’s understanding of the futures market, eliminate the system barriers restricting the market’s development and solve the problems of lack of professionals, trading technologies, globalization and regulatory resources.

The seminar is enlightening as experts from self-regulatory organizations, futures exchanges and futures regulatory authorities introduced their experiences and practices in a substantial and insightful way from such aspects as market and intermediary regulation in terms of early-stage, standardized, detailed and quantitative regulations as well as developing institutional investors and enhancing risk education of individual investors.
Mr. Sonosuke emphasized that Japan’s futures market would be going through a crucial accumulation phrase. In the next stage, the SRMEX will continue to maintain communication and cooperation with international futures regulatory authorities and market organizations, so as to promote the development of Japan’s futures market and the sustainable development of national economy by learning from international experiences and practices.
