HA NOI (VNS) — The State Treasury of Viet Nam plans to issue bonds worth VND70 trillion (US$3.28 billion) in the first quarter of 2015.

The State Treasury said that it will mobilise VND55 trillion ($2.58 billion) in five-year bonds, VND10 trillion ($469.4 million) in ten-year bonds and VND5 trillion ($234.7 million) in 15-year bonds.
