Land Bank of Taiwan

Land Bank of Taiwan (土地銀行) is a wholly state-owned bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan). It was owned by the Taiwan Provincial Government before its downsizing in December 21, 1998, when it was transferred to the jurisdiction of the Executive Yuan. Its predecessor under Japanese rule was the Nippon Kangyo Bank. NKB branches in Taipei, Hsinchu, Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung were taken over by the ROC government following the end of the World War II, to facilitate the implementation of land policies such as land-rights equalisation and the land-to-the-tiller programme. The branches were reorganised into the Land Bank on September 1, 1946.

It is the only bank designated by the ROC government as a specialised bank for handling real estate and agricultural credit. Its objective is to develop national economic construction in coordination with the implementation of the government's housing, agricultural, and land policies.
