The Vietnamese financial sector and the banking industry in particular plays the central role to fulfil the national ambition to sustain the high rate of economic growth in coming years. As the sector is still prone to external instabilities, strengthening the banking sector to narrow the gaps with international standards is strategically important.
The Swiss BET programme offers the instruments required by the Vietnamese banking and financial industry to improve the management practices in respective institutions. Building on the success of the previous programme phases, Swiss BET will be jointly governed by a partnership of SBV and SECO. The Swiss Finance Institute (SFI), the project-implementing agency, will provide the expert trainings. SFI is the Switzerland’s centre of expertise on fundamental research, doctoral training, knowledge exchange, and continuing education in the fields of banking and finance.
