CEO Pham Quoc Thanh added that they expect the bank to maintain strong growth in 2023.
"The macroeconomic landscape of the world and Viet Nam have brought significant challenges to Viet Nam but also provided great opportunities for those who have the know-how,” noted Kim Byoung-ho, chairman of the bank’s board of directors, during the AGM.
“By taking the initiative and being flexible in a volatile period, HDBank last year achieved strong yet sustainable growth. We ensured the prudent and asset quality ratios were well-managed within safe levels, and the growth of both credit and deposits topped the industry,” Kim added.
