The New Zealand Bankers’ Association announced today that the China Construction Bank (New Zealand) Ltd has joined the association, bringing the total number of member banks to 17.

New Zealand Bankers’ Association chief executive Karen Scott-Howman says: “We are delighted to welcome CCBNZ to the Bankers’ Association. China is one of New Zealand’s most important trading partners. Having Chinese banks here helps support this trading relationship.

“CCBNZ’s participation in the New Zealand banking industry promotes further competition and diversity in our banking sector”, says Scott-Howman.
