Techcombank on Wednesday announced a VND30 trillion (US$1.27 billion) credit package to support its customers to overcome difficulties amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The package includes exemptions and reductions of lending rates as well as extending and rescheduling debts for both businesses and individuals.

Accordingly, VND20 trillion would be given to support firms to restructure their debts. In addition, Techcombank will also reduce interest rate for customers by up to 2 per cent. It also committed to ensuring credit sources to support companies to resume business after the end of the pandemic.

The bank’s household and individual customers can access a VND10 trillion support package including reduction of the lending rate of 2 per cent and mortgages for buying and repairing houses in six to 12 months.

Phung Quang Hung, Techcombank’s Managing Director cum Standing Deputy General Director said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge for the world’s economy including Viet Nam, causing big effects to the people lives, the development of business community and all sectors of the economy. Techcombank’s VND30 trillion package aims to facilitate our customers to recover their business and lives."

In addition to the package, Techcombank has accelerated investments into digitalisation of transactions to limit the use of cash and minimise the risk of COVID-19 infection.
