Mr Green made the statement at the bankâs annual general meeting (AGM) of shareholders.
Numerous reports in the press claimed that the post holder would be relinquishing his role as chairman this year and handing over responsibility to non-executive director John Thornton, chairman of HSBCâs unit in North America.
However, the chairman quashed the rumours during the meeting saying: âTo be clear, I look forward to chairing the next AGM in 2011.â
He stated: âWhen I have something to say, Iâll say it.â
Mr Green added that he would not be following the majority of HSBCâs senior management team and relocating to Hong Kong.
The chairmanâs role âmust be essentially full-timeâ and based in the UK while the chief executive officer needs to be based in Asia, he explained.
Meanwhile, Mr Thornton, who is also chairman of HSBCâs remuneration committee, is to lead an investigation into the bankâs payment procedures.
The move follows criticism from some shareholders over the size of pay packets handed to top executives including HSBC CEO Michael Geoghegan.
