Samson:  Vietnamese Government plans pilot application of new payment services

 21st March, 2018

According to the SBV’s Payment Department, cashless payment is becoming a trend in Việt Nam. Cash payment has reduced from 14 per cent in 2010 to 12 per cent at present

HÀ NỘI — Deputy Prime Minister Vương Đình Huệ has asked relevant bodies to report a pilot plan on applying new payment services to Prime Minister before April this year.

Accordingly, State Bank of Việt Nam (SBV), in conjunction with other relevant bodies, must scrutinise and build up legal frameworks for the management and pilot application of the services.

The new payment services will mainly relate to public services, such as tax, electricity, water, tuition, hospital fees and social and public welfare programmes.
