The auction aimed to sell 5 trillion VND (215 million USD) worth of G-bonds with 5-year, 7-year, 10-year, 15-year and 20-year maturity.

Bonds with 10-year maturity raised 1.8 trillion VND (77.4 million USD) with an annual interest rate of 4.75 percent, 0.04 percent higher than the previous auction on September 12. A sub-session sale of the 10-year bonds drew 600 billion VND (25.8 million USD) with a yield of 4.75 percent per year.
