Hanoi (VNS/VNA) - HDBank was recently selected as Asia best service and Vietnam market leader in the “Trade Finance Survey 2019” by the English-language monthly magazine Euromoney.

HDBank was selected out of 7,000 organisations and companies from 89 national and territories thanks to its outstanding strategy and business plans as well as strong human resources in 2018.

HDBank is one of 200 banks that have joined ADB’s financial assistance programme since 2015. Through the programme, the bank has accelerated campaigns to support customers’ import-export activities, especially small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

In its 2017-2021 plan, HDBank aims to become the leading bank in the country, targeting small- and medium-sized enterprises.

To improve quality and bring more services to customers, the bank is focusing on developing human resources by organising training courses.

With its strong efforts, the bank has received many awards like the “Best Cash Management in Vietnam” for five consecutive years from 2012 to 2016, and Best Working Place and Best Cash Manager in Asia Pacific in 2018.

After 30 years of operating in the Vietnamese market, HDBank has widely developed its system in the country with 285 banking transaction places and nearly 14,000 financial transaction points. The company has also developed over 400 financial institutions in the world.

Last year, the bank earned pre-tax profits of over 4 trillion VND (175 million USD) in 2018, up by nearly 66 percent year-on-year. This is the highest level that the bank has ever reached.

By the end of last year, the bank’s total assets were 216 trillion VND (9.5 billion USD), jumping by 14 percent over 2017. – VNS/VNA
