The number of transaction of this segment also accounts for 22% of total transaction, up by 18% y-o-y.

VND 30,000 billion credit package has been disbursed 45%


According to the Ministry of Construction, as of 31/10/2015, the total amount of money which banks committed to disburse credit support package has reached VND21,518 billion / 30,000 billion, accounting for 72% of total support capital. In particular, the bank has disbursed loans to house buyers of VND13,499 billionVND (45%) as the preferential captial. The delay in disbursing this package is mainly caused by the indeterminable deadline for this project, lacking of social housing projects to meet the society’s demand, inability to meet the loan conditions of the lenders and the long procedure to disburse the loan. Commercial banks expect to complete the disbursement of the VND30,000 billion package at the end of Q1/ 2016 [The original article is available in Vietnamese only.].
