”As a lead­ing bank in Asia, DBS has a grow­ing pres­ence in the three Asian axes with huge growth: Greater China, Southeast Asia and South Asia,” DBS Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Piyush Gupta stated, fur­ther say­ing that the Aus­tralian mar­ket has de­vel­oped into an im­por­tant trad­ing part­ner among Asian coun­tries in re­cent years.

“We be­lieve with DBS’ branch­ing in Australia, we can ac­tively help our clients ex­tend their busi­nesses in Asia.” Gupta said.

Yap, on the other hand, ex­pressed that she hoped with DBS’ ex­per­tise in Asian mar­kets, the bank can help Aus­tralian busi­nesses pro­mote their own ser­vices.
