Sacombank won the awards for Retail Banking and Bank for Community at the 2022 Vietnam Outstanding Banking Awards that were given away in HCM City last week.

It was for a sixth consecutive year that Sacombank won the awards given by the International Data Group, the Vietnam E-Commerce and Digital Agency, the Vietnam Banks Association, and other organisations.

Sacombank won the "Outstanding Retail Banking" award for achieving consistent customer growth -- with its customer base topping 15 million by the end of 2022 -- and having large transaction, ATM and merchant networks and diverse products and services.

It offers more than 250 products and services for individuals and corporate customers and has linked up with 110 banks and 30 e-wallets for money transfer.

It won the “Outstanding Bank for Community" award for its contribution to social security and local economic development.

Sacombank has for a number of years had practical programmes such as blood donation, awarding scholarships to students and organising the “Steps for the community” programme to raise funds for building communal cultural centres for ethnic minorities.

Vietbank also won the award for “Outstanding Bank for the Community.”

It focuses on both business development and CSR activities such as building bridges and charity houses in rural areas, donating computers to schools, providing scholarships to poor students through the Chi Vien charity fund, supporting people affected by floods, funding afforestation, and others.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, the bank contributed hundreds of billions of dong for pandemic prevention in many localities. — VNS
