A majority of credit institutions expect business performance this year will be better than 2017, according to the latest survey conducted by the State Bank of Vietnam on business trend among credit institutions in September. 
 
84.2 percent of participants predict an overall improvement in their business performance in 2018, with 23 - 30.5 percent expecting "much improvement". 
 
Around 88 percent of credit institutions expect to have a higher pre-tax profit in 2018 compared to 2017, and only 5.3 percent predict the figure would stay the same, while 6.4 percent are concerned over a decline in profit.
 
Meanwhile, the average profit growth of the banking system is predicted to increase 18.63 percent year-on-year in 2018, lower than the expectation of 19.05 percent recorded in a survey three months ago, but much higher than the rate of 13.63 percent of the same period last year. 
 
Liquidity of the banking system continues to improve, and it remains in a good state for both foreign and domestic currencies, which is expected to be extended in the upcoming quarter and for the whole year. 
 
According to the survey, most credit institutions witnessed positive growth rate in their business results in the third quarter, albeit at a lower rate compared to the previous one.
