Vietnamese govt unveils details of economic stimulus plan
Vietnamese government on Wednesday announced some details of the recently-announced $6- billion economic stimulus plan, including measures to help small and medium-sized companies and create employment, local newspaper The Youth reported on Thursday.

The plan would provide fund for interest rate subsidies for small and medium businesses, said Vu Hong Phuc, Minister of Planning and Investment, at a press conference held in Ho Chi MinhCity.

The subsidy would represent a four percent discount on the current commercial bank loan interest rates, he said.

The stimulus package will include funding for unemployment reduction programs and support for housing development.

The fund will also be directed to tax exemptions and credit guarantees for offshore loans.

The ministry said previously that the money would be used for some state investment, especially in infrastructure sector, to boost economic growth.

Phuc said $1.2 billion of the package would be raised by the sale of government bonds. He did not specify what other resources the rest would come from.
