Happy Chinese New Year

This year’s Chinese New Year will be celebrated on Saturday, 10 February, when we welcome the Year of the Dragon.

According to the Chinese Zodiac, Dragon, is the only mythical — and the most powerful — creature of the 12-animal Chinese zodiac. This legendary magical beast is symbolic of authority, honour, dignity and unprecedented opportunities.

The economic relationship between China and Africa is full of these incredible opportunities.

Along with our unique African network and capacities, and our deep links to the major global financial centres, Standard Bank’s partnership with our friends and colleagues at ICBC creates many of our most important capacities and competitive advantages, bringing long-term success to our clients, and prosperity to Africa and the world.

We wish you and your loved ones peace, health, happiness and prosperity in the Year of the Dragon.

Happy New Year!
