The Chinese equity market has evolved significantly since launch on October 31, 1995 and will continue to do so. With the inclusion of China A-shares and possible future inclusion of mid-cap stocks, emerging-markets indexes will likely further increase their concentration in the Asia region, and China in particular.

Change is the only constant. Indexes are living, breathing creatures that evolve in sync with the economy and the markets. Nonetheless, some changes are "man-made" and, in the case of the MSCI China Index, one such series of changes is well-known, announced in June 2017, and recently became effective.

On June 1, 2018, MSCI added 234,227 China A-shares to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index in a two-step process, up from 222 as announced last year, owing to subsequent index reviews and stock suspension conditions.
