Country Report
The article discusses various issues related to credit growth in Vietnam. According to State Bank of Vietnam (SBV), banking sector profits will remain below moderate due to slowdown in credit growth. Credit growth in Vietnam is expected to miss the government's target of 25.0% for 2010. It is stated that competition for deposits between commercial banks will also impact profit margins. However, banks with a larger exposure to the infrastructure sector are expected to do better.
