TABLE-Vietnam banks' assets, registered capital

Tue Jan 15, 2008 5:03am EST

 Jan 15 (Reuters) - The following table updates the assets and
registered capital of Vietnamese banks based on their statements.
 The central bank said it aimed to limit credit growth to 30
percent this year to control inflation after a jump of 37.8
percent last year.
 Deposit and lending rates would rise as banks tried to cope
with investment demand in an economy the government expects to
grow 9 percent this year, bankers said. It aims to keep annual
inflation below 9 percent.
 The central bank has given initial approval for nine banks to
start operations. They are the Oil and Gas Bank, Lien Viet Bank,
Bao Viet Bank, FPT Bank, Energy Bank, Asia Foreign Trade Bank,
Vietnam Star Bank, Dong Duong Thuong Tin Bank and Bao Tin Bank.
 Lien Viet Bank, or the United Vietnamese Bank, which has a
registered capital of 3.3 trillion dong and has Agribank,
Vietnam's largest bank, as one of its co-founders, had said it
would start operations in late April.
 The table lists banks based on their latest published assets.

 Domestic banks must have a registered capital of 1 trillion
dong to be qualified to sell shares to foreign banks.
 Vietnam caps foreign ownership of a domestic bank at 30
percent with a 15-percent limit for a strategic investor. A
foreign bank can own 10 percent and a non-bank investor that is
not a strategic investor can own 5 percent.
 In exceptional cases, the government could allow a foreign
strategic investor to own 20 percent of a Vietnamese bank.
 A total of 35 foreign banks with a combined 14 percent market
share of loans, six venture banks, four financial leasing
ventures, two wholly foreign owned financial leasing firms and 50
representative offices of foreign banks also operate in Vietnam.
 Ten percent of Vietnam's 85 million people have bank accounts
in a country with about 4,000 bank branches, half of them
belonging to Agribank, Vietnam's largest enterprise.
