Inter-bank lending interest rates have continuously slipped to hit a new record low, according to the latest monetary report by Saigon Securities Incorporation’s (SSI) Retail Research.

The rates for overnight loans in the inter-bank market on Friday declined to 0.5 per cent from 0.82 per cent on Monday, the lowest level since October last year.

The rates for one-week and one-month loans also dropped by 13 basis points to 1.14 and 2.29 per cent, respectively
