JAKARTA, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- After three years of waiting, Indonesia's largest lender Bank Mandiri has obtained a permit to open a branch in Shanghai, China. It is the first step for the bank into the world's most populous country, the JakartaGlobe daily quoted an executive as saying on Friday.

China's Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC) issued the permit on Nov. 3.

Bank executive Thomas Arifin said on Thursday that Mandiri now would submit a business operation application to CBRC. "We're hoping the Shanghai branch, which we've been trying to establish since 2007, will open in the first half next year to serve various banking activities, such as garnering corporate deposits, disbursing corporate loans, export-import transactions and remittance,"he said.

It would help boost Indonesia and China's business relationship and support Jakarta's efforts to achieve the trade target of 50 billion U.S. dollars with China in 2011.

The Shanghai branch will be Mandiri's seventh outside Indonesia.
