Right after Decree No. 31/2022/ND-CP and Circular No. 03/2022/TT-NHNN were issued, BIDV has actively researched customer demand to register for interest rate subsidy limit of VND3,820 billion in 2022 and 2023. Accordingly, on 13 June 2022, the State Bank of Vietnam issued an official document to BIDV to notify its expected interest rate subsidy limit in 2022, which is VND1,060 billion.
BIDV held a conference for implementation of Decree No. 31/2022/ND-CP of the Government and Circular No. 03/2022/TT-NHNN
In order to timely implement the interest rate subsidy package, BIDV issued guidance for the implementation of interest rate subsidy program following Decree No. 31/2022/ND-CP and Circular No. 03/2022/TT- SBV. In addition, BIDV delivered system-wide trainings on interest rate subsidy regulations, solving bottlenecks during the implementation to ensure compliance with regulations of the Government and the State Bank of Vietnam.
Another focus of BIDV is to develop and operate a management program for interest rate subsidized loans, which helps to calculate and implement interest rate subsidy in a transparent and time-saving manner. To promote customer outreach, BIDV communicates publicly and transparently about Decree No. 31/2022/ND-CP and Circular 03/2022/TT-NHNN and actively approaches, advises and provides guidance to customers to complete interest rate subsidy loan applications. As of 30 October 2022, BIDV was one of the most active commercial banks in implementing the interest rate subsidy package, in terms of both interest rate subsidy loan balance and interest rate subsidy amount for customers.
The interest rate subsidy program from the state budget following Decree No. 31/2022/ND-CP and Circular No. 03/2022/TT-NHNN is significant for the recovery and development of Vietnam’s enterprises, cooperatives and business households, highlighting the important role of BIDV in particular and commercial banks in general. BIDV requires its member units to work closely to timely and safely implement the interest rate subsidy program in line with regulations on target customers and loan purposes. In addition, focus should be given to the inspection and supervision of interest rate subsidy loans and communication to customers, ensuring the objectives set by the Government and the State Bank, actively contributing to sustainable economic recovery and growth.
