Hanoi (VNA) - The State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) recently approved a proposal of the Military Commercial Joint Stock Bank (MB) to raise its charter capital.

Accordingly, MB’s charter capital will be raised from 18.15 trillion VND (799.56 million USD) to 21.6 trillion VND (951.5 million USD).

The plan was adopted by shareholders and the board of directors of the bank at their meetings in March and April, respectively.
