Chinese businesses have begun talks with the management of Ghana Commercial Bank (GCB) with the view to fostering business relations for mutual benefit.
The businesses were drawn from the banking, engineering and construction sectors of the Chinese economy.
These came to light when a Chinese delegation led by the Chairman and Executive Director of Guo Kai Jinxin Fund Management Co. Ltd., and Guo Kai Jintai Capital Investment Co. Ltd., Mr. Liu Jianshe, called on the management of the Bank.
The Managing Director of GCB Bank Limited, Mr. Anselm Ray Sowah, said GCB Bank currently has the largest footprint in Ghana and this promotes business development across the country.
GCB Bank is the best bank in Ghana to establish such relationships with, due to its strong asset base, capacity, network and expertise, Mr. Sowah added.
He said, GCB, apart from meeting the new minimum capital requirement of GHS400 million of the central bank ahead of the December 2018 deadline, has the resources to undertake very large transactions.
Mr. Liu Jianshe said it was convenient and prudent to deal with a stable, trusted and well-tested Ghanaian brand like GCB Bank in international business.
He said partnering with GCB will help speed up business growth in Ghana and China.
Present at the meeting were the Deputy Managing Director (Operations), Mr. Samuel Amankwah, Chief Business Development and Marketing Officer, Mrs. Hannah Essien and the Head of Investor Relations, Mr. Edward Nana Adisi.
