About HKMA's API

The HKMA embraces the development and application of Open API. While promoting the wide adoption of Open API by the banking industry in Hong Kong, the HKMA sets an example by launching Open API on its official website.

The use of API is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use which apply to this site.
