Xu Luode, president of China UnionPay and vice chairman of UnionPay International, said during the signing ceremony in Phnom Penh that currently, UnionPay cards reached more than 3.5 billion people.

The UnionPay network has been extended to 141 countries and regions. At the same time, UnionPay cards are issued in more than 30 foreign countries and regions, as of the end of 2012.

“We will work together with Acleda Bank with the trademark license agreement and show, marking the two sides formally opening a new chapter of business co-operation,” he added.
