The great US banker Jamie Dimon, head of the large JPMorgan Chase Bank, will also go to Taiwan after his visit to China. Dimon will arrive in Taiwan on Friday, which China considers a renegade territory.
Recently, tensions between China and the United States have escalated. Dimon’s visit to Taiwan therefore comes at a sensitive time. The high-profile man was in the Chinese port city of Shanghai this week at a JPMorgan Chase event and is said to have spoken with a senior Chinese government official there. He will speak to local staff and bank customers in Taiwan.
Recently, many senior executives have visited Taiwan, including CEO Jensen Huang of the Nvidia chip group. China has also welcomed business leaders recently, including Tesla CEO Elon Musk this week and Apple’s Tim Cook in March.
Earlier this week, Dimon, 67, said he may have political aspirations after his stint at JPMorgan Chase, though he has repeatedly denied speculation he might run for president. Dimon has been president of the largest bank in the United States since 2005.
