In response to the call of President Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh to contribute to the country’s fight against Covid-19 pandemic, Hana Bank donated VND6 billion to the Fund via an account opened at the Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV).
Mr. Nguyen Huu Dung - Vice Chairman of the Central Committee of the Vietnam Fatherland Front – highly appreciated and thanked Hana Bank for their support. This donation will provide more resources to Vietnam’s vaccine supply program, thus more people will be vaccinated and disease prevention measures could successfully implemented. Not only for economic development cooperation, the contribution of Korean businesses to Vietnam’s community activities also help to cultivate national relationship and promote the cooperation between the two countries.
Mr. Ham Jin Sik – Director of Hana Bank Hanoi Branch said: “It’s our pleasure to contribute to the Vaccine Fund and join hands with the Government and people of Vietnam to achieve the "dual" goal which consists of preventing pandemic and ensuring production and business development, therefore contributing to the overall growth of the Vietnamese economy. Hana Bank and BIDV will continue to stand side by side with the Vietnamese people to overcome the pandemic.”

In November 2019, upon the approval of the Governments and competent authorities of Vietnam and South Korea, KEB Hana Bank, now Hana Bank, officially became the foreign strategic shareholder of BIDV. The companionship and sustainable development between Hana Bank and BIDV contributes to the cooperation of leading enterprises in Vietnam and South Korea, further promoting diplomatic relations and being the foundation for long-term economic and social relations between the Governments and peoples of the two countries.
