  3. Legal Compliance: CITD will legally incorporate transaction documents and corporate bonds into the Tokens. A comprehensive Legal Opinion will be provided to ensure the legal validity and enforceability of these documents.
  4. Regulatory Assurance: CITD will deliver a Regulatory Report to ascertain that the Tokens comply with Hong Kong’s regulatory framework. The report will also identify any additional compliance or internal control measures required.
  5. LRT Triple Audit: An in-depth audit, encompassing Legal, Regulatory, and Technical aspects (LRT), will be conducted. This audit will assess the legal and regulatory compliance of the Tokens, the integrity of their smart contract codes, and ensure the Tokens are free from vulnerabilities, malicious code, or other potential risks.

Mr. Daniel Wong, CEO and Chairman of CITD, commented on the partnership, saying, “We are excited to join forces with Echo International Holdings Group Limited in this innovative tokenization project. This collaboration exemplifies our commitment to advancing technology’s role in shaping the future of finance.
