TAKE A LOOK-China's Nasdaq-style tech board opens for trade

SHANGHAI, July 22 (Reuters) - China's Nasdaq-style tech board opens for trading on Monday. The first batch of 25 companies - from chip-makers to new materials firms - will debut on Shanghai's STAR Market.

The STAR Market, complete with a U.S.-style system for initial public offerings (IPO), could be China's boldest capital market reform yet, strengthening Shanghai's position as a financial hub that could rival Hong Kong or New York.

First announced by President Xi Jinping eight months ago, the science & technology innovation board is also part of Beijing's push for tech self-reliance amid the Sino-U.S. trade war, in which Chinese tech giant Huawei has been caught in the cross-fire.
