To foster growth of hi-tech companies, Chinese governmental authorities initiated a "Growth Road Map of Innovative Enterprises Program" on the Shenzhen Exchange. The Shenzhen Exchange is allowed to expand its business to cover the whole South China area in the co-name of China Property and Share Rights Exchange ("CPSE").
