Zhang Dongxiang, President of Bank of China (Brazil) Limited pointed out that Rio is the second biggest city of Brazil, a world-renowned tourist destination, and the most dynamic region in the country, accounting for 12 percent of Brazil's gross domestic product. Upon its establishment, the branch will actively support and serve Chinese enterprises "going global," he said.

BOC's Rio Branch is located on Avenida Presidente Vargas in the center of the city. It is to offer: deposits, loans, currency exchange, remittance, and trade settlement, among other services.
