Another banking giant backed by the People’s Republic of China, PBOC has pushed hard into overseas markets in recent years. International segments accounted for nearly 30% of the bank’s profits in 2017—a figure the bank hopes to eventually increase to 40%. The central government’s geopolitical goals may factor into this strategy: For example, PBOC has issued roughly $100 million in credits since 2015 to countries participating in the government’s Belt and Road Initiative to revive China’s ancient Silk Road trading routes.
