Federal and state banking regulators today announced amendments to their November 1995 orders terminating the U.S. banking activities of the Daiwa Bank, Limited, Japan, and the Daiwa Bank Trust Company, New York.

The orders amending the termination orders were issued by the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the New York State Banking Department, and state supervisory authorities in California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Florida, and Georgia.
