Specifically, BIDV has just approved a plan to increase its charter capital in 2021 by more than VND8.3 trillion. MSB plans to increase its charter capital from VND11.75 trillion to VND15.275 trillion. VIB also submitted to shareholders the plan to increase capital, if successful, its charter capital will increase from more than VND11 trillion to VND16 trillion.
