CHARLOTTE, N.C. ( TheStreet) -- Bank of America ( BAC) CEO Brian Moynihan is making his first trip to China this week, a report says. Bank of America is preparing to incorporate in China in order to pursue more business there, the Wall Street Journal reports. The bank wants to do more commercial and corporate banking in China, in contrast to its retail-banking strength in the U.S. The visit by Moynihan comes amid a transition in the bank's relationship with China Construction Bank, in which it holds a minority stake. Longtime Bank of America executive Gregory Curl, who is leaving the company at the end of the month, intends to give up his board seat at CCB, though the exact timing hasn't been determined, sources told the newspaper. A CCB spokesman told the Journal he wasn't aware if Curl was leaving as a director. The Journal notes several Bank of America competitors have joint-venture arrangements allowing them to underwrite stock sales in China. JPMorgan Chase ( JPM) is close to such an agreement with a Chinese company. Follow TheStreet.com on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook.
