Bank of China was established in 1912 with the approval of Dr. Sun Yat-sen. It is the only bank in China that has operated for one hundred years. From 1912 to 1949, Bank of China served consecutively as the country's central bank, international exchange bank, and specialist foreign trade bank. Since 1949, the Bank has functioned as the state-designated specialist foreign exchange bank to undertake foreign exchange administration and been transformed into a state-owned commercial bank in 1994. In 1994 and 1995, Bank of China started note-issuing in Hong Kong and Macau respectively. In August 2004, Bank of China was incorporated as Bank of China Limited. After a century's development, Bank of China has its institutions distributed in Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and 32 overseas countries and regions around the world.
