KARACHI: HBL opened its first branch in the Gwadar free trade zone on January 29, 2018, making it the only bank to have a branch in the port city as well as in China. With this launch, HBL has achieved the monumental milestone of becoming the first bank to be opened in the new business centre in the Gwadar Free Zone. Last year, HBL had become the first Pakistani bank to open a branch in China. The branch was opened in Urumqi - a city with enormous potential. HBL is also the pioneer bank to offer a CNY account in Pakistan to facilitate business and continue playing its instrumental role in CPEC.
