The CEO has also announced plans to increase the limits available to Tanzanian Traders withdrawing money from the China Union Pay platform, saying the current limits have proven to be a challenge. "We have had complaints from our clients regarding the withdrawal limits, which hinders large business transactions. We have discussed at length on the best solution, and we will soon provide a permanent solution,” the CEO says. 

China Union Pay International CEO Cai Jianbo, who presented the Recognition Certificate to CRDB Bank acknowledged CRDB Bank’s support to the payments company.
