The policy credit continues to actively support policy beneficiaries to develop production and business, improve their living standards, and overcome the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, contributing to poverty reduction, new rural development, and ensuring social security. Moreover, policy credit has timely provided capital for production and business, creating jobs for nearly 249,000 employees, including 1,600 overseas workers. It also provided loans to over 16,000 disadvantaged students, was used to develop 879,000 rural safe water and sanitation facilities, as well as build 3,600 houses for policy beneficiaries.

In order to complete the assigned tasks in the last six months of the year, the general director requested the branches to actively advise the government, ministries, branches, committees, and local authorities to implement Directive No.40-CT/TW and Conclusion No.06-KL/TW dated June 10, 2021 of the Secretariat on strengthening the Party’s leadership in policy credit. In addition, they should channelise local resources to facilitate multidimensional poverty reduction, ensure social security, and build new countryside. All of these efforts are expected to contribute to the successful implementation of the 13th National Party Congress resolution. VBSP will continue to promote lending to policy credit schemes according to assigned targets, accelerate progress and procedures to promptly support the poor and other beneficiaries of policies, as well as strive to complete early targets assigned by the prime minister.
