Hanoi (VNA) - The Military Commercial Joint Stock Bank (MBBank) has decided to postpone its annual shareholders’ meeting.

The meeting was scheduled for April, but the bank has decided to put it off until the end of June.

Central and provincial governments have banned all events and meetings and closed stores and restaurants that attract large numbers of people.

The bank's shares (HoSE: MBB) lost 3.8 percent to end on March 26 at 15,050 VND./.
