Market Summary

Yield Movements

Local currency (LCY) government bond yields in Viet Nam declined for all tenors between 31 August and 15 October, resulting in a downward shift of the yield curve. The decline in interbank rates drove yields lower during the review period. The State Bank of Vietnam is expected to keep interest rates steady for the rest of the year to support economic growth, and opts to use other monetary tools to curb inflation. The central bank has been engaging in open market operations to manage liquidity and intervening in the foreign exchange market to stabilize the VNDĖUSD exchange rate.
