Bank of China is one of the four horsemen constituting China’s state-owned banking monopoly. It is the key lender of the four in China’s ambition to “go out”–code for its often state-owned builders to take their excess supply to markets like Africa. The bank’s network spans 46 countries (including a couple branches in Manhattan). Last year it supported 2,200 overseas projects worth $148 billion. More than a quarter of its loan are derived from outside China.
