Han Zheng Meets Co-CEO of Deutsche Bank
    On February 26, Han Zheng, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and secretary of the CPC Shanghai Municipal Committee, met with Juergen Fitschen, co-CEO of Deutsche Bank, and his party.
    Han Zheng said that 2016 is the first year in China’s 13th Five-Year Plan period and Shanghai has also mapped out its plan for development in the next five years. We will further deepen reform across-the-board, steadily expand opening up and step up economic restructuring and transformation of development mode. We are confident that we will be able to maintain consistent and steady economic growth and achieve efficient and quality development. At present, in accordance with the unified plan by the central government, Shanghai is speeding up the building of international financial center, steadily carrying forward the financial reform at China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone, further expanding financial opening up at home and abroad, and heading toward the fixed goals in real earnest on the basis of risk control. Deutsche Bank has registered sound development in China and Shanghai over the years and we will, as always, create a sound environment for the Chinese and foreign businesses to achieve greater growth in Shanghai.
    Juergen Fitschen said that as the world is faced with new challenges, China’s resolve to deepen reform is inspiring and its five major development concepts are worth sharing and borrowing by other countries. Deutsche Bank will take as the highest priority the Asia market, the China market in particular, continue to take an active part in the building of Shanghai international financial center, seize the opportunities brought about by the building of China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone, and make all-out efforts to develop Shanghai’s economy.
    Deutsche Bank is the largest bank of Germany and one of the major financial institutions in the world. It entered China in 1872 and established its first overseas office in Shanghai. It registered and founded Deutsche Bank China in Beijing in 2008 and has branches in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin and China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone.
