Aiming to further expand their business operations in Guandong province, Manulife-Sinochem has recently announced the opening of a sub-branch in Shantou. Manulife-Sinochem is a life insurance joint venture between the Canadian life insurer Manulife and the China Foreign Economy and Trade Trust Company, a member of the Sinochem group. Shantou, an important port city located in the southern province of Guangdong, is one of the five special economic zones in China. The insurance market in China is undergoing rapid development, and the opening of this new sub-branch in Shantou reflects the steady growth in business operations that Manulife-Sinochem has been experiencing in Guandong, becoming a significant life insurer in China. Making good on their social responsibility, Manulife-Sinochem intends to nurture local talent to build a localised professional team, creating in the process more employment opportunities in the community. Back in 2002 Manulife-Sinochem opened its first branch in the city of Guangzhou, located in the province of Guandong. Since then, and within that same province, the company continues developing their business operations in the cities of Foshan, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen and Huizhou. Based on figures released by the China Insurance Regulatory Commission (CIRC), during the first five months of 2010 the Guandong insurance market total original premium income of over US$8.4 million (EUR 6.4 million), of which life insurance accounted for US$6 million (EUR 4.6 million), approximately a 72 percent.
