In early 2017, it was said that the MB Bank had planned to divest from MBLand Holdings in order to satisfy the Government’s regulation that "banks are not allowed to trade real estate and establish subsidiaries operating in this field”, under the Law on Credit Institutions 2010.
However, MB Bank’s divestment plan has not yet been disclosed. In fact, MBLand’s financial resources for many years have been quite good thanks to the credit support from MB Bank.
