Using a case study of China CITIC bank’s successful experience, this paper will examine the current problems and challenges of state-owned banks (SOB’s) and joint-venture banks to find out(1)how much can SOB’s learn from CITIC’s experience;(2) what is the limitations for SOB’s in imitating CITIC’s case model; (3)what needs be done to improve SOB’s inherent problems? To answer the questions above, this paper will select some of CITIC bank’s successful strategies that can be adopted by SOB’s and match it with SOB’s inherent characters to answer the limitation of this case study and to give recommendations for SOB’s further development.
