HCMC receives $6.8B of remittances

HCMC has been a leading locality in remittance inflows, with about $6.5-6.6 billion in 2021, up 9% year on year despite the Covid-19 pandemic, said the HCMC branch of the State Bank of Vietnam.

In the year, the whole country received about $12.5 billion, according to Vietnam News Agency.

This is an important resource supporting the socio-economic development of the city and the stability of the foreign currency supply in the city and the country.

To prepare for the peak season of receiving remittances at year-end, many local banks have launched various promotion programmes to attract more money.
