In recent years, Vietnam has experienced successful economic growth and integration into the regional economy.

While domestic financial institutions continue to maintain a key position in the economy, foreign financial institutions (IFE), not to strengthen their position not in the financial market development and bring their considerable contributions to economic growth.
