HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Market operator Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing on Wednesday said it will keep a China-anchored strategic focus and control costs even as uncertainty over the Sino-American trade war clouded its outlook.

The company said it is pushing ahead with a three-year strategic plan covering 2019 through 2021, unveiled earlier this year. Under that plan, HKEx plans to facilitate cross-border flows into and out of China, further building on its electronic trading links that give global investors access to the mainland stock and bond markets.
