Since China joined the WTO, coastal provinces and cities demand significant international trade and international finance. Zhejiang Province is a province especially reliant on foreign trade.

In recent years, the presence of foreign companies (from Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan) in Zhejiang Province account for a large proportion of foreign investment companies and are increasing every year.

As such, there is an urgent need to cultivate a group of international trade finance professionals who have obtained a solid theoretical basis alongside practical experience, higher foreign language proficiency and advanced information technology skills.
