MoneyGram (MGI), a leading global money transfer company announced today that money transfer services at China Guangfa Bank (CGB), one of China's well-known banks, are now available at all of CGB's 132 banks across mainland China.
With this addition, MoneyGram's money transfer services will be available at more than 14,000 locations in China, strengthening MoneyGram's growing network in China.

"Customers in all the provinces where MoneyGram services are available appreciate our ability to bring people closer through a reliable and convenient customer service."
