Shen Huadi, deputy head of the district who attended the launch ceremony said that having such a bank was in line with local government's plan to boost its finance industry. And it will also contribute to Shanghai's goal of becoming an international financial center.

Shen expected that the new bank will develop more innovative financial products to help with local industrial restructuring. He also wanted the bank to help turn Jiading into a scientific and technological innovation center.

The deputy head added that so far, Jiading boasts a large number of emerging financial institutions, which feature rural banks, small loan companies, financial leasing and commercial factoring firms. This was due to the government's strong support.
