The Fed said in a statement that it has approved the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Limited, China's largest bank, and two other Chinese investing firms to become bank holding companies by acquiring up to 80 percent of the voting shares of The Bank of East Asia USA., located in New York city.

The Bank of East Asia USA. has total assets of approximately $780 million and operates 13 branches in New York and California.
