The newly-established Beijing Stock Exchange started trading Monday morning, with the first batch of 81 companies debuting on the bourse. The companies listed include 10 that were newly approved and 71 that were transferred from the select tier of China's National Equities Exchange and Quotations, also known as the "new third board."

Yi Huiman, chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, has hailed the launch of the BSE as "another landmark in China's capital market reform and development,” he said at the launch ceremony. “

It is also of vital importance in creating a multi-level capital market, improving financial support for SMEs, as well as promoting innovation-driven development and economic transformation and upgrading.”


>Data protection regulations drafted


The Cyberspace Administration of China on Sunday issued a set of draft management regulations on protecting internet data security to solicit opinion from the public.

According to the regulations, the country shall establish a category- and class-based data protection system.

The data will be classified as common, important and core based on its importance to national security, public interests, as well as the legitimate rights and interests of relevant individuals or organizations. Different protection measures based on the classifications will be imposed.

Data processing entities should set up emergency response mechanisms to limit the damage caused by potential data security incidents.

People traveling to Beijing will be subject to tighter COVID-19 control measures starting Nov 17, the municipal government said Saturday.

All those traveling into Beijing must provide negative results of nucleic acid tests taken in the 48 hours before arrival and a green health code.

Those from counties (or cities, districts or banners) with new infections within the past 14 days are under tight restrictions when seeking entry to the Chinese capital, the government announced at a press briefing.

The holding of national conferences, training and other activities in Beijing will be strictly controlled.

Closed-loop management will be implemented during these activities, and participants are not allowed to go out.

The above measures will be dynamically adjusted according to changes in the epidemic situation.

Schools in New Delhi will be closed for a week and construction sites for four days, the Indian capital's chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Saturday, as the city tries to protect people in a worsening air pollution crisis.

He added all government offices would shift to work from home, while private offices would be advised to do the same for a week to reduce the number of vehicles on the road.

Earlier in the day, the chief justice of India N. V. Ramana asked the central government to come up with an emergency plan to tackle the dangerous smog, calling the situation "very serious".

The Air Quality Index in and around the city has worsened to 470-499 on a scale of 500, according to federal pollution control board data available Saturday.

That level of pollution means the air will affect healthy people and seriously impact those with existing conditions.
