Bad debt ratio falls to 3.2% in August

Vietnam:The ratio of bad debts in the domestic banking system dropped to 3.21 per cent at the end of August 2015, from 4.93 per cent recorded in September 2012.

State Bank of Viet Nam Deputy Governor Nguyen Kim Anh announced the figures at a seminar reviewing banking reorganisation over the last three years, in Ha Noi yesterday.

Anh reported that, as of August 2015, credit institutions had settled non-performing loans worth VND424.14 trillion (US$18.85 billion), equivalent to some 91 per cent of the total soured loans unveiled in September 2012.

She said the Viet Nam Asset Management Company, or VAMC, had helped handle more than 41 per cent of the total bad debts, while the remainder had been solved by credit institutions themselves with provisional funds or through the sale of mortgages.

She added that the achieved results in debt treatment had significantly supported the banking restructuring process, cleaning up lenders' finance and fostering credit expansion in the economy.

The results also reflected significant efforts of lenders without support from the State budget, while economic conditions remained tough.

VAMC Chairman Nguyen Quoc Hung said the company bought about VND91.31 trillion ($4.06 billion) in bad debt, at a price of some VND82.16 trillion ($3.65 billion), during the first nine months of this year.

He said this was "quite good progress" as the purchased amount had already exceeded the VND80 trillion ($3.56 billion) quota the firm had set for 2015.

In nine months, the VAMC recovered debts totalling VND9.83 trillion ($436.89 million), more than twice as that in 2014, thanks to the economic rally and a warming-up realty market.

Anh said that with the ongoing debt treatment progress, the overall bad debt ratio is likely to fall to below three per cent this year, in line with the national target for 2015. — VNS

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
