According to Mr. Tran Quoc Xuan, the connection program helps banks to grasp the characteristics of enterprises and business households better besides supporting them. From there, they will study to shorten and simplify the order and procedures for loans and actively approach enterprises and business households to disburse loans under the Government's preferential policies, especially those in priority areas. At the event, nine enterprises representing businesses in District 7 signed new and renewed loans with commercial banks operating in the area. The total loan amount is more than VND103 billion.
