The article focuses on the bank reserves requirements of Vietnam on short term depository to stem rising inflationary pressure by the State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) on May 30, 2007. The bank has lifted its requirements from five percent to 10 percent. The figures constitute the second consecutive month of above-target inflation. By raising the reserve requirement ratio, the SBV will rein in liquidity by reducing the amount of funds that the banks can lend to the public.
