Editorial

In this issue of Treasury Today in China we are delighted to announce the winners of the 2010 Hui Chuan Awards for excellence in treasury management in association with EuroFinance Conferences. Case studies detailing many of the winning and highly commended solutions are included in this issue of Treasury Today in China.

The Hui Chuan Award categories were as follows:
  • Treasurer/Treasury Team of the Year

  • Treasury Practice Innovation

  • Cash and Liquidity Management

  • Best Practice in Outsourcing/Finance Shared Services

  • Working Capital Management/Financial Supply Chain

  • Best Risk Management Solution

  • Best Process Re-engineering Best Global and/or Local Banking Solution

  • Harnessing the Power of Technology

  • Best Practice Award for Group Finance Companies

  • Best Funding Solution

Open to any corporate operating in mainland China, the Awards recognise the achievements of those companies that have demonstrated best practice and innovation. These cover many different areas of a treasurer’s responsibility, from cash management to process re-engineering and from financial supply chain to funding. We received 110 nominations from a diverse range of companies across China.

We were honoured to host a celebratory lunch in Beijing in September at which the winners and highly commended were represented, together with their banking and service providers. Please see the case studies for more details on their achievements.

The nominees were all treasurers and senior financial officers looking to implement innovative solutions in China’s complex regulatory environment. Competition for the awards was very strong and all nominees should take pride in the resourcefulness and effectiveness of their solutions.

If you missed the opportunity to nominate yourself for one of these awards make a note to apply for next year’s awards.

In addition to the case studies featured in this edition, we also look at the positioning of money market funds in China and consider topics such as regulation, the ratings process and the rationale for corporate investment.
