Korea, Japan, and China have more than 50, 140, and 20 years of urban commercial bank(regional bank) history, respectively. The urban commercial banks(regional banks) of each country were born in specific national contexts and have been continued to operate into the present day. Urban commercial banks(regional banks) in Korea and Japan attempted to expand their business spatially beyond their own regions during periods of rapid economic growth. However, after the economic crisis, the spatial extent of each business was again contracted to its own region. At present, urban commercial banks(regional banks) in China are actively promoting spatial expansion. We will compare the spatial expansion and contraction phenomena in Korean, Chinese, and Japanese urban commercial banks(regional banks) to clarify their distinct and shared characteristics.
