This is the first MoU in this field the SBV has signed with a foreign partner and a crucial mark in completing the legal framework for comprehensive relations between the SBV and the FSC. 

In addition, the MoU creates a legal framework for the two sides to strengthen information exchanges and sharing, launch technical cooperation related to modernization of the banking and financial systems as well as apply advanced financial technology in banking activities and services.

He expected that the relationship between Viet Nam and the RoK in general and cooperation in finance and banking in particular will make outstanding development in the future, especially in renovation and creativity.
