HÀ NỘI — Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng lauded efforts and achievements made by the banking sector during the national cause of economic development as he delivered a speech at a ceremony on Wednesday marking the sector’s 70th founding anniversary (May 6).
Describing the sector as the lifeblood of the economy, he hoped it to continue contributing to the nation’s reform, industrialisation and modernisation.
The Party leader recommended the sector enhance the efficiency of the State Bank of Việt Nam (SBV)’s management and monetary policy, while ensuring the security, safety, and effectiveness of credit organisations’ operations.
The sector should keep up its efforts to control inflation, stabilise the macroeconomy, mobilise and meet the demand for credit, and offer banking services serving socio-economic growth, Trọng said.
At the event, State Bank Governor Nguyễn Thị Hồng underscored the SBV will closely follow orientations and policies issued under the 13th Nation Party Congress’s Resolution in directing and managing banking activities in contribution to realising targets set in the 2021-25 plan and 2021-30 strategy for socio-economic development as well as the vision toward 2045.
The SBV will boost the effectiveness of its monetary policy monitoring and its capacity to adapt to domestic and global economic fluctuations so as to realise the goals of inflation control, stable macroeconomics, helping enhance the economy’s independence and autonomy amid international integration, she noted.
Restructuring, completing legal frameworks, diversifying services, and promoting administrative reform and innovation are also other tasks of the sector, the SBV governor added.
On the occasion, the SBV was conferred with the Labour Order, first class. — VNS
