 The guidebook helps foreign residents use local financial services conveniently and comf-ortably. The revision comes in eight languages, including English, Chinese, Vietnamese and Russian.

 This revised edition consists of seven sections which cover using a bank, savings products, cards, insurance, currency exchange and overseas remi-ttance, preventing financial fraud and reference materials. It describes up-to-date financial systems and product information while referencing infogr-aphics, illustrations and photographs.
