Banks continue to slash deposit interest rates

Only two banks now offer 8% interest on deposits compared to more than 10 even a month ago.

The highest rates of 8% are offered by GPBank (for 12 months) and Saigonbank (13 months). The rest have dropped their rates to below 8%.

Ten of them are offering less than 7%, including the four large state-owned banks, which are paying 6.3%.
