It is also implementing the second phase of restructuring in combination with dealing with bad debt, continuing to complete the remaining work of restructuring in phase 1 and prepare a solid foundation ready for equitization roadmap under the direction of the Government.
Immediately after the National Assembly issued Resolution 42 on piloting bad debt settlement of credit institutions, which came into effect on August 15, 2017 and the Prime Minister approved the project on restructuring the system of credit institutions in combination with settling bad debt for the 2016 2020 period, Agribank was the first bank to announce the "campaign".

Agribank has drastically reduced the lending interest rate of bad loans as of August 15, 2017; exempted and reduced the interest accrued under the original repayment term to encourage customers to find all sources of debt repayment, restore production and business.
With the support from the State Bank of Vietnam and other ministries and agencies, and the determination of Agribank, the implementation of Resolution 42 at Agribank has brought about more results than expected, which is an evidence that the business of Agribank has truly entered a new phase of recovery and growth.
