Bank of China (BOC) had proud and long history and played an important role in China's financial history. It was established in 1912 pursuant to the approval of Mr. Sun Yatsen. In the following 37 years until the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, the Bank served as the central bank, international exchange bank and specialized foreign trade bank successively.
As the pillar of the country's financial industry, Bank of China was committed to serving the public and developing the domestic financial sector. During these volatile years, the Bank strived to expand its presence in the market by prudent operation and aggressive reform, leading the market in many areas of its operations for a long period. Having branched out into overseas market, the Bank opened a brilliant chapter in China's modern and contemporary banking history.
In 1949, Bank of China became the state-designated specialized foreign exchange bank and substantially contributed to development of foreign trade and the national economy.
