Four regional banks have secured B-class underwriting licenses for debts issued by non-financial companies on the inter-bank market, the National Business Daily reported Wednesday, citing an announcement from the National Association of Financial Market Institutional Investors. Bank of Jiangsu, Bank of Tianjin, Huishang Bank and Beijing Rural Commercial Bank have been allowed to conduct the business in the regions of their incorporation, the paper said.
