China Banking Corporation (China Bank) won a Gold Anvil Award for its centennial coffee table book 100 Years of Trust: The China Bank Story at the 58th Anvil Awards on March 8, 2023 at the Marriot Hotel in Newport City Complex, Pasay City.
An informative and engaging retelling of China Bank's rich history, the 400-page centennial coffee table book chronicles how the Bank has grown and lived up to its mission as a catalyst of wealth and value creation for its stakeholders through the good times, and especially during difficult times. Readers with an interest in history, banking, and business will find the book a fascinating read as it is also filled with photos and facts about life and business in the Philippines since the 1920s.
The Bank commissioned award-winning authors Nancy Pe Rodrigo as writer and Butch Dalisay as editor. Leading design agency Perez Nu media handled the book design and production.
100 Years of Trust: The China Bank Story was distributed to selected clients, partners, libraries, and universities. It is available for free download here.
This is the Bank's third Gold Anvil Award and sixth time to win an Anvil, a symbol of excellence in public relations as presented by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines. China Bank also won a Gold Anvil in 2021 for its Centennial Program and in 2020 for its 2018 Annual Financial and Sustainability Report (AFSR). Its 2015, 2016, and 2017 AFSRs won Silver Anvils.
