The latest auction this week brought in VND 4 trillion (USD 172.38 million), with all issued bonds sold.

The interest rates in successful bids rose slightly for 10- and 15-year bonds, but down for 20-year bonds compared to the previous auctions on 24 October.

A report of Military Bank Securities said abundant liquidity of the system and strong drops in inter-bank interests have pushed G-bond interest rate down to a 10-year low.

Meanwhile, demand for G-bonds on the primary market is high, reflected in the 100% of successful bidding in October, and the participation of 9 to 15 bidders in each auction.
