A new branch of the China Construction Bank (CCB Macau) was officially opened at Taipa Flower City yesterday amid frenzied lion dancing and ear-popping blasts of fireworks.
The grand opening ceremony received support from the Chairman of Macau Monetary and Foreign Exchange Authority, Anselmo L.S. Teng and Liaison Officer of the Central’s People’s Government in Macau, Economic affairs department Deputy Director, Li Chunman, who officiated at the ribbon-cutting as well as the eye-dotting ceremony.
Also at the opening were several management members from China Construction Bank (CCB Asia).
In his address to guests, CCB Macau Chairman and CCB Asia President and CEO, Charles Mar said, “in recent years, Macau continues its speedy development in infrastructure, tourism, the entertainment industry and more.
“As a result of rapid economic growth, demands for quality banking products and services by Macau citizens and small-and-medium enterprises have been elevating.”
He added that “benefiting from the Cotai Strip development, the geographic location of Taipa has become increasingly important.
“The Flower City is one of the core residential districts in taipa. This location is selected for our fourth branch in Macau to offer quality and convenient banking and wealth management services to residents in the neighbourhood,” he said.
The bank has expressed plans to open two to three additional branches this year, aiming at extending the branch network to a total of six or seven branches eventually.
CCB (Macau) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CCB (Asia) since 2006, with the bank offering a wide range of commercial and retail banking products and services. CCB (Asia) has 24 branches across Hong Kong and Macau.
CCB (Macau) was formerly known as Bank of America (Asia) until it was renamed on December 30, 2006 to its current name.
