The latest auction held November 20 brought in 3.9 trillion VND.
In the auction, the annual interest rates in successful bids declined for 5- and 15- and 30-year bonds compared to the previous auction, standing at 2.37 percent, 3.74 percent and 4.64 percent, respectively.
The rate remained unchanged for 10-year bonds, standing at 3.62 percent.
According to the HNX, compared to early this year, the annual interest rates in successful bids tended to decrease, down by 1.45 percentage points for 5-year bonds, 1.48 percentage points for 10-year bonds, 1.56 percentage points for 15-year bonds and 1.16 percentage points for 30-year bonds./.VNA
This expansion was due mainly to a 4% on-quarter growth in government bonds to US$51 billion as the central bank increased issuance of bills.
Local currency (LCY) government bond yields in Vietnam trended lower between June 1 and August 15, leading the entire yield curve to shift downward, according to the latest issue of the ADB’s Asia Bond Monitor.
