During the construction period, ICBC offers the enterprise professional consultation services and helps it familiarize domestic economic, financing and foreign currency management policies, environment and how to avoid policy risks.

Once the enterprise has the registration certificate of foreign currency, ICBC will open a foreign currency settlement account and foreign currency funds account immediately.
Simultaneously, ICBC, integrating its Tokyo branch, will design the safest, convenient and efficient remittance course with a low deduction of fee. This helps the company remit its 8 million USD into its domestic funds account t successfully. When ICBC gets to know that the 8 million USD has been idle funds for three months, ICBC immediately designs a principal and interest preservation for the enterprise, expecting its annual yield to be 2% to 6% with the CP financing service. Three months later, the enterprise begins to pay the land payment and construct its plant and consumes nearly all of its funds. There is an urgent need for 14 thousand RMB's loan. Because the enterprise has no mortgaged property, neither land and plant property card nor other properties able to be mortgaged, ICBC suggests the enterprise to adopt RMB loan under the foreign currency guarantee. It was up to the parent company to trust Japanese bank to issue a 20 million USD's standby L/C with its beneficiary as ICBC. Then, ICBC issues 140 million RMB's loan for the domestic enterprise and solved its problem.
