Cross-strait bank JV eyed for Zhongguancun, paper says

Bank of Beijing Co. Ltd. (601169.CN) has approached Taiwan Business Bank about setting up a specialty bank in Beijing’s Zhongguancun science and technology park, Economic Daily News reported Tuesday, citing the government-owned Taiwanese lender. Bank of Beijing is proposing a 50-50 venture, although mainland regulations prohibit a Taiwan bank from holding more than 20 percent of a domestic lender. If successful, the venture will be the first of its kind, the report said.
