State bank orders credit institutes not to force customers to buy insurance Each bank is required to review its banking system while giving tough penalties on those who require customers to buy insurance that is not really necessary when granting credit to customers, and approving loans to customers in accordance with regulations, according to the State Bank of Vietnam’s request. The State Bank of Vietnam's branch in Ho Chi Minh City has just issued a written request to credit institutions and foreign bank branches citywide to comply with the direction of the State Bank of Vietnam regarding insurance business and insurance agents. The State Bank of Vietnam’s branch in Ho Chi Minh City said that it had previously received complaints from associations and manufacturers that businesses were forced to buy insurance when applying for loans. This made the input costs of enterprises surge, causing difficulties in the context of increasing input costs and this is not in line with administrative reform of the banking sector. Accordingly, the state bank has written requests to credit institutions in the city to continue to reform administrative procedures as well as digital transformation to help administrations faster and increase service convenience to reduce costs for customers. According to the State Bank of Vietnam branch in Ho Chi Minh City, credit institutions should expand and develop services to facilitate stable lending interest rates and support businesses. In addition, credit institutions ought to continue to implement the Government’s preferential credit programs with interest rates as well as the municipal People's Committee’s direction on capital concentration for production and business. In addition, this state bank branch also required credit institutions to strictly comply with regulations on interest rates, credit, and exchange rates, and strengthen internal inspection and control to ensure compliance with the banking sector’s regulations. Particularly in the foreign exchange sector, the State Bank asked commercial banks to pay more attention to cross-border money transfers, foreign currency trading, payment and exchange at the end of the year. Trade data remains positive in January-October period Viet Nam's trade with the rest of the world reached US$616.3 billion in the first ten months of 2022, up 14.1 percent over the same period in 2021. According to official statistics released by the General Department of Viet Nam Customs on November 21, 2022, the total import-export value of the whole country in October reached US$58.27 billion, a slight increase of 0.1 percent (equivalent to an increase of US$67 million) compared to September. The trade balance of goods in October recorded a surplus of US$2.47 billion, bringing the goods trade surplus in 10 months this year to US$9.59 billion. Specifically, exports in October 2022 reached US$30.37 billion, up 1.9 percent (equivalent to US$552 million in absolute terms) compared to the previous month. In the first ten months of 2022, the total export value stood at US$312.94 billion, up 16 percent (equivalent to US$43.1 billion) over the same period last year. On the contrary, imports of goods in October 2022 were estimated at US$27.9 billion, down 1.7 percent (equivalent to US$485 million) compared to the previous month. Some good groups witnessing a sharp decrease in import value include machinery, equipment, tools and spare parts (down US$309 million); crude oil  ($224 million); computers, electronic products and components (US$221 million); raw materials for textiles, leather and footwear (US$105 million). Regarding the import-export market in January-October period, Viet Nam's goods trade with Asia reached US$398.41 billion, accounting for 64.6 percent of the country's total trade volume. Trade value with America reached US$131.23 billion, up 16.8 percent; Europe - US$64.7 billion, up 8.9 percent; Oceania - US$15.02 billion, up 30.4 percent and Africa - US$6.94 billion, down slightly by 1.5 percent compared to 10 months of 2021. The import-export value of FDI sector in the first ten months rose 14.6 percent on year to US$428.99 billion. Vietnamese rice export showing impressively positive signs Economist experts commented that the target of Vietnam to export 7 tonnes of rice in 2022 is within the power. In addition, the export price of 5-percent broken rice is leading the world, at US$425-230 per tonne. These are truly positive signs to the national economy at the end of this year. Rice growing and exporting of Vietnam so far have received several good news. The ST24, ST25 rice type have entered the top-4 most delicious rice in the world. Trung An Hi-tech Farming JSC. (in Can Tho City) has its rice products accredited under GlobalGAP standards and accepted in picky markets like the EU and the Republic of Korea. Vietnam each year imports around 1 million tonnes of rice, while it is a renowned rice exporter. For instance, in 2021, the country bought 999,750 tonnes of rice from other nations, 72 percent of which came from India. This has raised certain concern in the community. The reason why Vietnam has imported 100-percent broken rice from India since 2021 is its cheap price ($100-140 per tonne) compared to the domestic price ($430-450 a tonne). This rice type is used for brewing wine and beer, producing vermicelli and pho noodle, making animal feed, which is obviously profitable. However, rice experts worry that when the imported rice prices are cheaper than the domestic ones, rice businesses might buy even rice for daily meals, negatively affecting rice farmers in the country. That is why the Ministry of Industry and Trade has lately proposed to add regulations on rice import into Decree No.107 on rice export business conditions. This amendment is considered necessary to perfect the legal frame for management units to monitor this important produce according to the real context and timely handle any arisen issues for sustainable rice production and export. Yet this control over rice trading should not be administrative orders or rigid regulations that might cause more difficulties for rice import-export businesses. Email system helps promote Vietnamese tourism The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) has developed a special email system as part of efforts to promote Vietnamese tourism at This marks the first time that the Vietnamese tourism industry has had an email system in order to serve tourism promotion activities. The purpose of the move is to enhance digital transformation in the tourism sector, focusing on building tools and applications in a bid to increase travel experience. The target subjects of the email system are those who work in fields which promote Vietnam's tourism at tourism management agencies, tourism promotion centres, associations, and businesses. According to VNAT, the email system plays an important role in building professional and efficient communication and transaction tools, thereby contributing to introducing Vietnamese tourism brand to the international market.

In addition, credit institutions must ensure stable liquidity, safe banking operations, and strictly control credit from potentially risky areas. Going forward, the SBV will provide appropriate management solutions following the government's policy and demands of commercial banks and enterprises. Transport link between Mekong Delta and Cai Mep, Cat Lai ports proposed The Vietnam Ship Agents, Brokers and Maritime Services Providers Association (VISABA) has proposed establishing a waterway transport route from the Mekong Delta region to the deep-water ports of Cai Mep and Cat Lai through Quan Chanh Bo Canal. Some 70-75% of the Mekong Delta region’s annual imported and exported cargo is transported to the ports in HCMC and Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province. The majority of this cargo is now transported using road transport, while the port cluster in the Mekong region could not be fully exploited. Currently, the waterway transport routes connecting the port cluster in Can Tho to Cai Mep and HCMC are mainly traveling through the Tien River – Vam Nao River, with a length of 367 kilometers, and Tien River – Cho Lach District – Mang Thit River, at a length of 235 kilometers, costing some VND7 million per TEU. According to VISABA, the proposed waterway transport route, connecting the Mekong Delta region to the deep-water ports of Cai Mep and Cat Lai through Quan Chanh Bo Canal, which is 200 kilometers long, will help reduce the transport cost to VND3 million per TEU. Besides easing road traffic congestion and logistics costs, the proposed waterway route is expected to reduce the need to dredge canals for heavily-loaded vessels in the Mekong Delta region. High lending rates dampen housing market Increasing interest rates are forcing homebuyers to make difficult decisions, including selling their homes to pay off their mortgages. Interest rates on consumer loans have increased by two to four percentage points against early this year to 12-13%, bringing many borrowers to their knees. Last year, annual interest rates ranged from 7% to 8%, but now it is impossible to take out a loan with an interest rate below 10%, said Pham Anh Khoi, head of the Finance – Economics – Real Estate Institute of Dat Xanh Services. Tight monetary policy in other economies, coupled with soaring inflation and local banks having used up their credit growth quotas, has resulted in the recent spikes in interest rates, a commercial bank leader said. Under the current circumstances, it is difficult for homeowners to sell their homes to pay off their mortgages, as buyers hesitate to take out loans due to high lending rates, further paralyzing the housing market. Bank deposits increase again According to the latest updated data from the State Bank of Vietnam about customers' deposits in the credit institution system, after decreasing for two consecutive months, deposits have increased again, gaining more than VND106 trillion in September. Specifically, deposits of institutional customers rose by nearly VND105 trillion in just one month, reaching VND5.78 quadrillion. While two months ago, this block's deposits fell by VND170 trillion. Deposits of individual customers also increased slowly, only going up by VND1.44 trillion compared to the end of August, reaching VND5.63 quadrillion. While two months ago, individual deposits surged by more than VND17.5 trillion. Since the beginning of the year, deposits of the whole system have climbed by more than VND475 trillion, equivalent to 4.33 percent. Meanwhile, in the first ten months of the year, the credit balance of the whole economy gained by 11.05 percent, exceeding VND11.57 quadrillion. Vietnam Export Promotion Forum 2022 to get underway in HCM City The Vietnam Export Promotion Forum 2022 is set to take place in Ho Chi Minh City on November 28 in an effort to seek solutions on sustainable growth, provide fresh impetus to the transition towards a green economy, and improve the capacity of firms to boost green exports. The annual event is primarily aimed at effectively implementing the Import-Export Strategy moving towards 2030 and the National Strategy on Green Growth for 2021 - 2030 with a vision to 2050, which has been approved by the Prime Minister. It also serves as a policy dialogue channel for facilitating export promotion and identifying opportunities and prospects for Vietnamese exports so as to improve the overall competitiveness of local export items. The event is anticipated to attract the participation of numerous relevant ministries, localities, Vietnamese trade offices abroad, diplomatic organisations, international economic research agencies, and enterprises from 27 EU countries and Vietnam. The Vietnam Export Promotion Forum 2022 will be jointly organised by the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the European Chamber of Commerce (EuroCham). It is part of the Green Economy Forum & Exhibition (GEFE) 2022 slated for November 28 to 30 in Ho Chi Minh City. Annual Vietnam logistics forum spotlights sustainability The Vietnam Logistics Forum (VLF), the largest annual event in the field hosted by the Ministry of Industry and Trade since 2013, will take place in the northern port city of Hai Phong on November 25 and 26, aiming to encourage firms to save energy, reduce emissions, and use clean power sources. As scheduled, on November 25, participating delegates and businesses will have a field trip to a port and logistics centre in Hai Phong, which houses a long coastline and a deep-sea port capable of habouring ships with tonnages of up to 12,000 TEU (132,000 tonnes). On the next day, they will attend the forum’s plenary sitting theme ‘Green Logistics’ and two panel discussions on cost optimisation via logistics centers and circular economy, and on the sector’s active adaptation. Vietnam ranks 11th out of the 50 countries in the 2022 Emerging Market Logistics Index released by logistics and freight provider Agility. The country’s freight and logistics market is expected to grow at a compounded annual rate of 5.5% in 2022 – 2027. Its economy has posted a strong recovery this year, growing at 8.93% in the first nine months. Vietnamese businesses attend International Fair of Santiago Vietnam and other ASEAN member states such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines recently showcased their typical products at the International Fair of Santiago (FISA), Chile. FISA, Chile's largest and most unique multisectoral exhibition, held its first edition in 1962, and had its last version in 1998. This year, the fair returned to the city of Santiago after 24 years, from November 16 and 20. It attracted the participation of thousands of domestic businesses and those from 20 countries worldwide. The Vietnamese embassy and the trade office in Chile brought to the fair the country’s products of strength such as footwear, garment, coffee and handicrafts. This is a chance for Chilean firms to learn about the Vietnamese market and seek partners. VICEM to export 6 million tonnes of cement, clinker to Philippines The Vietnam Cement Industry Corporation (VICEM) will ship a total of 6 million tonnes of cement and clinker to the Philippines from 2023-2025, as its demand for construction materials of various kinds is huge. A deal of this effect has been signed between VICEM and the Philippines’ Fenix (CEZA) Int’l Corporation and Golden Falcon Trading Corporation in the witness of Vietnamese Minister of Construction Nguyen Thanh Nghi, as part of the ongoing visit by National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue from November 23-25. Currently, VICEM has 10 cement factories with 16 production lines capable of producing 21 million tonnes of clinker and over 25 million tonnes of cement per year. It sells around 30 million tonnes annually, or about 33% of domestic market share and about 23% of export market share. HCMC proposes shortening fuel price adjustment interval The HCMC People’s Committee has proposed that fuel prices be adjusted every five days, instead of every 10 days, to respond more quickly to global oil price movements. The HCMC government said that 9-20% of 549 fuel retailers in the city had reported daily supply shortfalls since October 1. Due to losses, fuel retail businesses have refrained from placing new orders, leading to a serious fuel shortage in the city. Given the situation, HCMC proposed that fuel prices be regulated in tandem with market movements, and shorten the interval between two fuel price adjustments to three or five days, instead of the current 10 days. The city proposed that the prime minister task the Finance Ministry with reviewing and reassessing fuel retail and trading costs. At the same time, ministries are recommended to raise the proportion of fuel output from imports to calculate the base prices of fuel. Long An approves 654-hectare IP project The Mekong Delta province of Long An has presented an investment certificate to Long An Development Invest JSC, a member of SAIGONTEL Group, to develop the 654-hectare Tan Tap industrial park project.
