Turnover from export-import activities and foreign currency service of the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho exceeded 2 billion USD in 2018 - a record high in the last 15 years.
According to Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Vo Thanh Thong, Vietcombank Can Tho was one of the major contributors to the result.
The bank’s total capital mobilisation and loan amount hit 9.6 trillion VND and 7.7 trillion VND, respectively. It earned 250 billion VND in profits in the year.
Thong asked the bank to continue to work with local authorities to support enterprises, especially those specialising in agriculture and rice exports, in 2019.
The export success is attributable to the efforts of agencies and enterprises in the city seeking new markets and improving product quality.
Can Tho is the only city in the Mekong Delta and a development driver of the southwest region./.
