The State Bank of Vietnam has granted operation licences to America’s First Commercial Bank and the Taipei-based Shanghai Commercial and Savings Bank to open two branches in Vietnam.


First Commercial Bank, a division of Synovus Bank, is chartered in the state of Georgia, the US.


Shanghai Commercial and Savings Bank is currently one of the largest privately held banks in Taiwan.


Mr. Nguyen Van Giau, Governor of the State Bank of Vietnam, presented the licenses to representatives of the two foreign banks in Hanoi on Oct. 6.


The two branches will have US$15 million in chartered capital each and will perform capital mobilization, credit activities and payment services, as well as provide other banking services.

First Commercial Bank will set up a branch in Hanoi.


Shanghai Commercial and Savings Bank will upgrade its operational representative office in Bien Hoa City, the capital of the southern province of Dong Nai, into a branch, according to a bank spokesperson.


The Bien Hoa office was established in March 2006. It will become the bank’s second overseas branch after its Hong Kong branch opened in June 2008, the Taiwanese lender said.


The Dong Nai branch is expected to serve Taiwanese investors in Ho Chi Minh City and its neighboring Binh Duong Province, according to the spokesperson.

At a meeting to discuss measures to handle the issue held April 21 between province’s officials and environment investors with Tung Kuan representatives, the province People’s Committee decided to suspend company’s production related to polluting environment.


The province also revoked decisions on environmental impact evaluation and wastewater discharge licenses of the company.


The People’s Committee said that it would only consider removing the suspension decision after the company thoroughly builds a wastewater treatment system and clean water environment.


The Environment Police Bureau under the Ministry of Public Security in the middle of April said that the Tung Kuang Company was discovered discharging dozens tons of untreated wastewater to Ghe River each day in Hai Duong Province since 2005.
