China Everbright Bank and The Western Union Company have announced an agreement to offer money transfer services at more than 300 China Everbright's branches in more than 30 cities in China.

The service will be rolled out in the next few months. Western Union’s representation agreement with China Everbright Bank will help extend Western Union’s global network of money-transfer services into cities throughout China, complementing the existing network and offering its customers even greater convenience.

Andrew Ong, regional vice president for Western Union, North Asia, said: Increasing numbers of Chinese people are moving to other parts of the world to study or work.

Western Union’s Money Transfer service is trusted by customers to quickly and reliably receive money from, or send money to, family members or friends back home. Together with China Everbright Bank, the network is expanding into more economically developed cities. Both companies are able to increase choice and convenience for our customers, wherever they might live.
