Featured statistic: EUR 25 billion
Date 24 January 2008
Over the past three years, banks from China and Hong Kong have markedly increased their deposits at Dutch banks. At end-September 2007 these deposits exceeded EUR 25 billion. In South East Asia, financial market developments are determined largely by the economic performances of Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore. As these countries possess few natural resources, their economies have specialised as international financial centres. Dutch banks operating in the region also have most financial relations with banks in Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore.
