These objectives are set in Decision 1191/QD-TTg inked by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on August 14 to draw up a roadmap to develop the bond market up to 2020, with a vision toward 2030.
The average term of domestically issued government bonds will be 6-7 years in the 2017-20 period and 7-8 years in the 2021-30 period.
The average trading volume of government bonds, government-guaranteed bonds and municipal bonds per session is expected to increase by 1 percent of the balance of listed bonds by 2020 and 2 percent by 2030.
By 2020, insurance companies, social insurance agencies, pension funds, investment funds and non-bank financial institutions will hold the volume of issued government bonds at up to 50 percent. By 2030, this figure will reach 60 percent.
The Decision says in the next three years, the policy framework for the bond market will be further improved while primary and secondary bond markets, intermediary institutions and market services will be developed.- (VLLF)
