Inflationary pressures in Vietnam remain strong:HSBC

Inflation is still a key policy challenge in Vietnam. CPI growth continued to accelerate in December, having already returned to double-digit territory in the previous month. In particular, food prices are still surging and showing no signs of a slowdown. Inflation risks are tilted to the upside, and given the government’s target of 7% for 2011, more efforts are required to rein in price pressures.

Forex market still in a state of flux as firms feel the squeeze

The central bank confirmed that it continued selling dollars to the banking system in November. The bank sold $200 million to local credit institutions in October instead of being a net buyer in September, purchasing $300 million from the institutions. The recent HSBC report entitled Time to give Vietnam a Second Chance read that with many of these loans maturing in the second half, onshore dollar supplies had declined. This situation is likely to continue in the coming months.

Inflation still a thorn in the side of banks

The consumer price index (CPI) in Vietnam accelerated more than expected in October, fast approaching familiar double-digit territory.
