Chinese bankers survey 2018 - Executive summary

March 2019

We are pleased to present the Chinese Bankers Survey 2018 report, prepared jointly by the China Banking Association (CBA) and PwC. Now in its tenth year, the report tracks developments in the sector from the perspective of Chinese bankers.

This year’s survey digs deep into the core issues while maintaining a broad scope. The interviews complement an online survey covering 31 provinces in mainland China (excluding Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan), resulting in a broad representation of China’s banking sector as well as high quality and efficiency. The survey tracks internal and external economic conditions, and looks into hot topics and challenges facing the sector through extensive studies. 

Survey results found that bankers are more optimistic about the banking industry’s future over the next three years.The finding reflects the transformation in China’s economy, from high growth rate to high quality development, and that bankers managed their expectations when the economic development began shifting from a high to a steady growth rate.
