Over 66% of lenders anticipate that the average rate increase will be 0.56% points per annum.

The State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) last week used open market operations to pump VND28.1 trillion ($1.18 billion) into the market and sold foreign currencies worth VND35 trillion.
Tight liquidity has caused interest rates on loans to increase sharply. On Tuesday, the overnight interest rate surged to 8-9% per year. It was around 7.5% per year for other terms.
