The Communist Party of Vietnam, the State, and Vietnamese citizens highly appreciate VBSP's policy credit activities during this period. Hence, VBSP was honored as the “Hero of Labor" in the renovation period.

However, it is predicted that the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change still have negative impacts on people, especially the poor. Therefore, VBSP's development strategy in the period of 2021-2030 should deliver clear purposes, orientations, as well as solutions to match the Socio-economic development strategy (2021-2030 period); Development Strategy of Vietnam Banking Sector to 2025, with Orientations to 2030; the multidimensional poverty line for 2022-2025 period. Besides, the strategy should be in line with the VBSP activities to contribute to the implementation of the national target programs for sustainable poverty reductions, new rural construction, and socio-economic development in Ethnic minorities and rural areas - stated by the First Deputy Governor of the SBV.

The Workshop has received a wide range of analytical, evaluating, and sharing opinions from different departments, ministries, and other organizations.

Hence, it is necessary to actively and effectively implement this policy.
