and implements its own policies. The United States is
characterized by this form of banking system.

of the country where it is doing business. Under our laws,

of the other countries that do business in the Philippines. It
is subsidiary and branch of a foreign bank operating in the
Philippines. Pres. Ramos on 1994 signed into law R.A. 7721
liberalizing the entry of foreign banks in to the country. This
was liberalized amendment of the general Banking Act of
• R.A. 7721, the Monetary Board shall allow six
(6) foreign banks to enter the banking system as a
branch within a period of five (5) years.
• Foreign Banks will be allowed a total of six (6)
branches with a capital requirement of P210 million
for the first three branches.
• This R.A. 7721 reverses a government policy for
the last forty five (45) years that has kept the banking
system closed to foreigners in the belief that the
approach was in the country’s best interest.
