Photos from the 2006 Country Awards dinner

Our second annual Country Awards dinner held in Hong Kong last week saw the cream of the banking world congregate.
The dinner was held in Hong Kong and saw the cream of the banking and the financial world congregate in the ballroom of the Grand Hyatt hotel. Around 200 guests were there to pick up their awards, which were announced in the July issue of FinanceAsia magazine.

However, we also announced a couple of new awards on the night. Kookmin Bank was named the winner of our Best Bank in Asia award; this is an award which we determine using 12 financial metrics, as well as S&PÆs Bank Fundamental Strength Ratings (for more details on this award and the methodology see FinanceAsia magazine). We also announced our inaugural lifetime achievement award, which went to Public Bank of MalaysiaÆs Dato Tan Sir Teh Hong Piow (who unfortunately couldnÆt attend due to a slipped disc). Meanwhile Goldman Sachs convincingly won the eveningÆs trivia quiz û the fourth time in as many years that the US firm has been victorious in a quiz at one of our awards dinners.
