BEIJING - China will launch a pilot program to streamline the panda bond registration and issuance mechanism in a bid to further open the country's bond market, an industrial body announced on Tuesday.

As part of the pilot program, which will take effect on Aug 1, the issuer base for universal registration will be expanded, according to a notice released by the National Association of Financial Market Institutional Investors.

The association will also introduce a frequent issuer program to facilitate issuances by overseas entities and reduce repetitive disclosure.
