The country has more than 10 banks involved in gold borrowing and lending activities, accounting for 30% of the total volume privately held by the public.  Earlier this year, the government closed local gold exchanges to ease gold speculation.

  1. Hi there,

    I am working with TVT4 to produce a business talk show focusing on Vietnam investment. I would be interested to get Jeff’s contact to have a discussion with him on the matter. Thanks
