HANOI, June 7 Vietnam's VN Index advanced
nearly 1.4 percent on Friday as investors bought banking,

listed firms, traders said.
Foreigners have bought a net value of 5 trillion dong ($238
million) of Vietnamese shares since the start of this year to
June 7, while they sold a net value of 140 billion dong in the
same period last year, exchange data showed.
