Recently, the conditions for corporate bond issuance to the public have been tightened by the State. This is a move to reduce risks for investors, especially for individual investors, so the number of issued corporate bonds has also fallen sharply. However, in the context that deposit interest rates remain at a low level, many enterprises have issued corporate bonds with high-interest rates to attract capital.

Credit for real estate sector continues to be adjusted

The State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) continues to stick with the plan of reducing the proportion of short-term capital used for medium and long-term loans this year, which is considered to be a barrier to the credit of real estate.
