VIB is one of 10 banks selected by the State Bank of Viet Nam to apply Basel II, a strict international regulation on management of market risks, credit and operation as well as capital safety.
The bank has considered the application of Basel II to be an important and active step. The project is expected to help VIB have a risk management framework which is similar to international banks as well as reaching the regional level.
Speaking at the launch ceremony, Nguyen Viet Anh, deputy director of HPT Application Solution and Service Centre (HAS) said the project could create a breakthrough for VIB in risk management under Basel II's standards with a strong and effective technology foundation.
VIB has been one of leading banks in Viet Nam with total assets of around VND80 trillion after 19 years of operations. In 2010, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), the No 1 retail bank in Australia, became its strategic shareholder. The co-operation has facilitated VIB to implement long-term plans successfully as well as improve its service quality.
