Vietnam Stock Exchange makes debut

The Vietnam Stock Exchange made debut on December 11, on the basis of merging the Hanoi Stock Exchange and the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange.

Deputy Prime Minister Le Minh Khai said that developing the stock market to create a medium- and long-term capital mobilisation channel for economic development is a big and consistent policy of the Party and State.

Over the past 25 years, the Vietnamese stock market is really becoming an important capital mobilisation channel for the economy, and helped promote the development of the financial market.

On the stock market, the VN Index has surpassed 1,500 points, making it the highest mark since the stock market officially came into operation.

The Deputy PM stressed the importance of restructuring and reorganising the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchanges to unify the securities trading market, ensure the market's efficient, fair, open and transparent operation towards a unified and professional Vietnamese stock market./.
