One of the main issues is that the time it takes to rebuild an apartment building is variable, and consequently has a large impact on payback. After more than 10 years of implementing a plan to rebuild old apartment buildings in Hanoi, only 20 have been renovated, accounting for just 1 per cent of the total in the capital. The city needed a lot of time to fulfill the plan, according to Hanoi's Department of Construction. Experts said there were also problems with reaching compensation agreements with residents of old apartment buildings, causing delays.

Payment trends in the economy have shifted towards non-cash modes and e-banking channels including away from ATMs. Electronic payments for public services have also become popular. By the end of last year some 50 banks linked up with tax and customs departments, and tax collected through them accounted for 95 percent of tax revenues.
