Deli Bank

Deli Bank

The Deli Bank was the first Chinese bank in Indonesia.[1] It was founded in Medan, Indonesia, in 1907 by the Tjong brothers, Tjong A Fie[2], (1860-1921) and Tjong Yong Hian (1850-1911), Mandarin capitalists from Mei Hsien, Guangdong, China, who had come over originally to recruit and supply Chinese coolies for plantation workers.[3] Also involved at this time were Cheong Fatt Tze who had entered the region from China, through Indonesia where he built his fortune but who was by that time, Vice-Consul for China, in Penang. Hsieh Yung-kuang was the fourth founding director of the bank.[4]
