After the Opium War in 1840, the Chinese people fell into the quagmire of foreign aggression. The masses of the people rose up to resist and finally won the great victory of the War of Resistance Against Japan. During that difficult period, Chinese business experienced various challenges such as feudal rule of Qing government, suffering from colonists, and exploitation of warlord. In order to survive, the banking industry responds immediately to information and constantly adjusts itself to adapt to historical trends. This paper takes American Oriental Banking Corporation in Sichuan as an example to analyze the process and choices of joint venture banks in social changes.
